Thanks for the support, ladies! Amy, I made three recipes from the Happy Herbivore book over the weekend and I liked all of them. I also made the new Southwest stuffed baked potatoes recipe from the FOK web site, and it is delish.
I made a huge pot of colcannon over the weekend. I was going to make more baked taters, but a bunch of my taters were green (grrr) so I decided to peel them and mash them instead. After looking at several recipes, here's what I did:
Boil a big pot of potatoes -- I'd say it was at least 5 lbs.
Chop some onions and cook them in soy milk, with nutmeg
Chop up a big head of cabbage, cook it separately in a little water.
Mix the onions and milk into the potatoes and mash.
Stir in the (well drained) cabbage. Add salt and pepper.
My weight is continuing to drop -- my ticker is a little out of date right now. All sorts of bones are emerging. My girlfriend said when she hugs me she is afraid I will break. I said, I'm just as sturdy as ever, the armature is the same, there's just less fat on top of it.
This made a huge tub, which I will be eating from all week.
I have to stay with my turtle energy.
Slow and steady wins the race. -- Letha
