just lookin' - just sayin'..........

When I published a "no food for Christmas" thing, I watched and looked at older articles, and I was shocked how much I had changed!
Over active thyroid ( normally an immediate examination thing in hospitals) to the extent of 35kilos in 3 months, would normally be examined and treated - the patient healed and thank you - byebye......!
Not me - around 2 years of nonsenses!  Hey - can I see a lotta money please? 

Happy Christmas to ya............

been a long time.....!

 I think this should become my maxim after all that has happened and is happening right now and over the last months.
Writing a blog about food, when you are unwell is no easy matter, even although my appetite is still relatively intact.  Of course, since it is not myself who currently does the cooking, I can't really decide what happens, so I'm just happy to get something to eat - now and then! My appetite is still reasonable, in fact more than reasonable, but I just can't stand up to cook anything!
Today is the 6th August, and is the 5th day of my new medicaments, time that I tried to get up, or at least to the edge of the bed, and hope the vertigo/vertige is supportable.
It is a shame that I can't concentrate on the subject matter, after all - food is rather a large subject, but talking about it isn't too great, one needs to sample it.....!
Living where I do, where the weather is often very hot, it is easy to eat just what one wants to - often quite light things. and then, even unwell, there is a sudden urge to fill oneself with all those bad things.............Well, I've managed to stay clear so far, probably because you can't buy the stuff where I live!   Shame, shame, shame!
Never mind, I'll stay with another one of my favourites, smoked fish - of all kinds, not just the boring smoked salmon, bu smoked trout, smoked halibut, smoked sturgeon, and even just the lowly kipper or some of those delicious smoked sprats.....
 It's true that European smoked fish tends to be less exotic than much of the World variety, but it is delicious, as is the exotic variety, shame we can't get it more easily. I recall in Germany being in heaven, smoked eel and many other smoked delices were readily available, and even halibut and mussels and oysters used to be available smoked....I liked them, although I do prefer my oysters and mussels natural and freshly raw!Just waiting to wriggle and wriggle around inside ya.....  

Amazing really where the mind takes you sometimes, but then I mustn't knock it.......let's imagine it was all true.....

Been a long time......

It's been a long time since I had the chance to publish on the Gourmandise due to health issues and my longer stays in "CHU's" (French hospitals).
This photo is of a CANADIAN CHU......and I can assure you, the French ones are nothing like this! Although the basic ingredients are of good quality, the fact that these "CHU's" are such monsters means that almost every type of person has to be catered for, which as usual means that in the end - nobody is really catered for!As you can see here....can't imagine what it is - breakfast, lunch,supper.....or what?
Of course, there are Salt-free diats, and generally they are a culture shock, coming all at once....and of course sugar free diats.....on top of which "EGGLESS"...another culture shock, although sugar free is easier to support than salt free with saccarine being available cheaply everywhere....just got to make sure you've got some!
Of course, the biggest enemy to acceptable food in hospitals is the attitude of the staff towards meals and the culture of eating. Often it is considered a boring waste of time dishing out the meals, and not nearly important enough - preferable to be transplanting hearts than serving them braised......Of course meals that get left around till they're cold, soups that aren't even offered, it's just not important enough.....well - it's very important for the patient! It's often the only pleasurable thing or moments of the day!  

Just a shame they haven't figured out that food is life and pleasure all at once.......

Hija MAMMA.........

It's confusing, Mother's Day is different in various places over the world, but this Sunday seems to be OK......!
Going out is probably best, because it gives us all a rest, except for the wallet/pocket book!
If you feel up to it, here are a couple of ideas to do at home. They are all somewhat different and contain a lot of that famous colour associated with females and mamma's....... ROSÉ, so what other wine than Rosé (AKA BLUSH!) or Rosé Champagne........could be served....?
Have a nice time and - NO SHOUTING.....Screaming etc......!

Workers unite (around the table!)

Mayday is the International call sign of DISTRESS, and when I look at the choice available for food on this day, I can only agree! Everyone must be too busy dancing around the Maypole, but that makes you hungry and thirsty!
I like the German idea - Maitag serves as "Dad's Day" (Vatertag) as well, and the fellows arrange beerwagons and little beerpicnicks, disappear for the whole day and have fun until the headache in the morning!
  This is full of bier and blokes....for the necessary toilets there are no recommendations!

For specials on the table there are few offerings as well......!
Right here in my area, there are the local items in season, particularly Asparagus, and due to the lack of choice otherwie, it is served in all manners,,,,quiche - steamed-grilled-with bechamel gratined, with all those butter mayonnaise sauces - bearnaise,  hollandaise even tartare.
Always with a message......... except here there is no time for demonstrations - we're here to eat!

 So - have a nice time - if you can......MY wife has strange ideas (Italian ones) some kind of pasta and gravy for lunch......I ask you - on Mayday....!
See what I mean...? "MAYDAY" in the International sense......distress call!

how true.

This image was selected as a picture of the we...I've stolen this!
The reason I stole it was simple - it is just so true, and I'd like you to read it.
I personaly, in 25 years of France, have NEVER heard a French child sit at table and say "DON'T LIKE THAT - NOT EATING IT!"

Think about British kids!
