What WOULD Bekki Eat?

Well, I'll start with what I wouldn't eat. I wouldn't eat margarine. Or tofu. Or lowered-fat anything. Olestra is right out. Hydrolyzed, isolated, evaporated, enriched, or chocolate flavored "phood" won't pass these lips.
What will I eat? Real food. Made-at-home food. Food that my great-great-grandmother could have made, if she had the money and the time. And if she hadn't been so busy trick-riding in a most unladylike way.

Allergic to sorghum?!

SORGHUM allergy? Are you kidding me?!?!

I should have known... because I bought it in bulk. Anything I buy in large quantity, whether or not I use a whole lot of it, I become allergic to. Just to piss me off.

I could have written most of this post.

This really isn't fun anymore. I do NOT want to rotate foods. I do NOT want to think about this allergy shit anymore. I just want to EAT!!!!

I made really yummy molasses cookies this afternoon, and the resulting clogged ears, exhaustion, and brain fog helped me figure out that I am, indeed, allergic to sorghum. Or maybe it's the fucking baking soda. I don't know anymore.

I love food. But it doesn't love me.

I hear you there... I, too, have numerous food allergies. Just found out about my allergy to sorghum last night, trying to enjoy a gluten-free beer (Celiac's). Tomatos, anything acidic, soy are also not tolerated by this body... nor are most veggies for that matter.

And I LOVE food.

About Me

My photo
Tejas, United States
I am many things... all at the same time. (No wonder I don't get much done!) I am a wife to a retired infantryman, mother of 3, stocker (and stalker) of the fridge, passionate fan of food, nutrition, ecology, coffee, wine, and college football. I love all things witchy and piratey. I often cook with booze. I feed stray cats. I don't believe in sunscreen. I don't like shoes and really hate socks. And I currently can't eat any gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, coconut(!?), or sodium metabisulfite (aw, shucks, no chemical snackies.) Sometimes even citric acid gets me. But only sometimes.
