    Default Dinner last night: PICs

    I defrosted some mince, mixed in some chopped lemon rind, thymme,
    rosemary, and garlic... along with one beaten egg, salt and pepper.

    After mixing it all thoroughly, I made it into 3 rather large
    patties/burgers with a slab of mozarella cheese in the middle, and let it
    sit in the fridge for 20 mins.

    Then it was a quick fry in the frypan to brown the outside, and pop them
    into the oven for 8mins to finish the cooking.

    They smelt *delicious* and tasted the same.

    After the SO had started eating hers, I quickly grabbed the plate and took
    a pic of the cheese oozing out..... the look I got when I asked for, and
    grabbed the plate spoke volumes as to how much she was enjoying them :-)


    I must say, these actually had me salivating from the smell, and so I
    tasted some of the juices on the meat, then the pan they were resting in,
    and then cut off a dessert spoon sized portion and ate it. BLOODY HELL!!
    It was good!!

    Until 5 minutes later... and then I was extremely nauseous and in pain for
    the next 3 hours :-/


    I think I might do what #2 daughter suggested to me... eat what I want,
    and as soon as I finish it, go and stick my fingers down my throat and get
    rid of it all :-(


    After coming out of the oven.......

    Plated with a simple salad of tomato, lebo cucumber, and greens.....

    With the cheese oozing........

    Looks good! Perhaps I missed an earlier comment, but what are you
    allergic to?

    Peter had to have stomach surgery some time back and has to eat a very
    special diet for the rest of his life. Among other things, fat restrictions
    so the cheese probably got him this time. He still loves to cook though and
    does on a regular basis.

    Personally I would never let a slice of cheese set in contact with
    raw ground meat for any length of time.

    Thanks Carol....

    Almost, but not quite :-)

    Small bowel resection, and an almost complete gastrectomy. I lost about
    18" of small bowel, and about 75% of my stomach sac.

    I can handle cheese OK, it's just the meat. I haven't had a problem with
    fats at all so far. Last night I had two 'hash browns' that we never used
    to have as even when baked in the oven, they still exude quite a deal of
    oil/fat.
    (The frozen MaCain variety)
    I can also eat cheese straight out, not a problem, but if I mix it with
    scrambled egg, it makes me nauseous...... so it's gotta be either the egg,
    or the cream..... and I've had cream on some chocolate mousse, so it's not
    the cream.... ergo, it's the damn eggs!! But I can eat a fried egg no
    problems!!

    I also found out a homemade banana and date loaf makes me 'sick'. I can
    eat flour, and I can eat bananas, so it must have been the dates..... or
    maybe it's just a combination of different things that cause a 'chemical
    imbalance'?

    This is my life now...... finding things on a daily basis that I can have
    by themselves, but as soon as I mix them with something else, it throws
    everything out of 'whack'.

    I'm off to see an acupuncterist(?) tomorrow to see if he can't do
    something to change the fact that red wine makes me *extremely* nauseous.
    How can someone go from being a red wine fanatic one day, to even the
    smell of a glass of red in the same room making him sick???!!!
    Same goes for beer, and champagne.


    But I can drink gin :-)



    > He still loves
    > to cook though and does on a regular basis.
    >
    >



    That I do. And till those rissoles the other night I haven't ever had the
    urge to try the meat. I can eat grilled fish, but prawns/shrimp and
    scallops make me sick. The same goes for any other meats.

    Since the op in June, I have changed (as my friend told me) to a
    pescatarian palate.

    Oh well....... it'll prolong my life by about 20 years.... but it'll seem
    like 40!!! ;-P

    That yellow processed, rather than lovely fresh white mozzerella might be

    Geez, Peter, that's pretty major! I missed any discussion related to
    that. I do hope everything was a total success. However, I can
    certainly believe it would cause life-changing eating habits.

    It may change over time, Peter. The husband of an acquaintancd of
    mine had what sounds like a similar procedure nearly 10 years ago.
    It took several years, but in time he was able to eat just about
    everything without problems. His remaining stomach volume also
    gradually increased, so that eating more normal quantities of food
    became possible. I hope this happens for you.

    A co-worker of mine had stomach bypass surgery for weight loss
    several years ago, and suffered nausea for more than a year. It
    gradually disappeared altogether.

    Nothing wrong with a good gin!

    At least you still have your enthusiasm for cooking and food!

    My taste for fish is somewhat limited, but I guess if that transition
    were necessary I'd learn to like a greater variety.

    I would think that prolonging your life would be at the top of the
    list.

    Mozarella comes in many forms. You should treat your mind like a
    parachute....... make sure it's opened before you use it.

    I've tried the yellow plastic stuff many times and I'm not a fan, but if you
    like it, good on you; it's certainly cheaper. I was just saying that if I
    had health issues related to diet, I'd try to avoid ingesting things that
    glow in the dark.

    And of course, you know *exactly* what brand I used and how much it cost,
    don't you?

    Open the parachute, Michael.......

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozzarella


    Mozzarella is a generic term for several kinds of Italian cheeses that are
    made using spinning and then cutting (hence the name, as the Italian verb
    mozzare means "to cut"):

    * Mozzarella di Bufala (buffalo mozzarella), made from domesticated
    water buffalo milk
    * mozzarella fior di latte, made from fresh pasteurized or
    unpasteurized cow's milk
    * low-moisture mozzarella, which is made from whole or part skimmed
    milk, and widely used in the foodservice industry
    * smoked mozzarella

    Fresh mozzarella is generally white, but may vary seasonally to slightly
    yellow depending on the animal's diet.

    According to America's Test Kitchen, that's the formula for a Minneapolis

    lol, yeah, if that's fresh, their diet includes yellow food dye no.57. It's
    obviously the processed stuff and I thought it might be hurting you, but as
    I said, if you like it, and it gives you no health problems, more power to
    ya.

    Whatever floats your boat. I can see you've got your blinkers on, and nothing
    is going to change your mind. Just remember..... closed parachutes.

    Did you know that cheese is one of the oldest processed foods in the world??

    Yes, that's right Michael....... *all* cheese is processed.

    Fair enough, blow my mind. What brand was it?

    > Yes, that's right Michael....... *all* cheese is processed.."


    I'm sure you know what fresh and processed mozzarella are.

    If you don't, allow me to enlighten you. Fresh is white, soft and silky and
    retains some texture when melted:
    http://thyme2.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83...3b5bf148833-pi

    The other is yellowy, oily, runny looking muck, that's hard and chewy when
    unmelted; somehow they manage to wreck both states. I'd hate to imagine
    what it does when it sets back to plastic in your guts, which is why I
    mentioned it, as you said you felt sick afterwards. No good deed...
