How about alternate instructions for those of us who don't have access to a cinema butter squirt machine? I'm sure they're the wave of the future and all, but not all of us have jobs at the cutting edge of technology. :-)

You need to shake a little tabasco over that baby.

You know it makes sense, Foobster.

Are we to assume from that, and not having posted a recipe in quite some time, that you haven't eaten since your last posting in this thread?

With all those constraints, you'll have to raise and slaughter your own Angus, and refrain from putting tomatoes* and artificial cocoa on it.

I was going to recommend something with tofu..but I think it's hard to make....and tofu is made of soy..so...hmm...

Spinach with rice? =D

What do you want to eat? Lately I've been eating veggies with rice *sigh*...I'm going to become a rabbit at this rate.

Potatoes? It has garlic, dried red pepper powder, salt, sugar, soy sauce..add water with that ingredient (put it in a medium/small bowl)...chop the potatos in small pieces...and you put it in a pot, and mix the potato with the sauce you made....and leave it to boil...and wait until the sauce gets sucked into the potato...tastes really good. I don't quite know the measurements...she did just put a pinch of this, and whatever....my mom made it ...hard to get measurements out of watching.

See, that's half the problem.

Food doesn't really interest me, apart from nourishing my body and making sure that it doens't go psycho on me again. Even with the foods I can eat, nothing really interests me - except strawberries - and there's only so much you can eat of those!


I HAVE been craving dairy and Oregon Chai tea, two things which I'm not allowed to have.

If I could eat like a rabbit, and stay this same weight, that would be great. Then I'd be free to eat just a couple of things. Unfortunately, as soon as I start eating like a rabbit, I'll actually turn into a blimp. I've explained this in another thread.

Blimpy Water for Buny???

Cut beef-filet in very thin slices (<5mm), roast in oil (takes only about 2 minutes), season (pepper, salt, everything else is probably too much), put on grey-bread, eat.


It's what I'm having right now.

Eat like a rabbit? That's an interesting phrase to use in that context. Where I grew up, eating like a rabbit meant that you pick at your food and eat very little. Is that a common expression in Austrailia?
Your mind has been transported back in time...and to Mars.

Yeah, that's the way I would interpret the phrase. I picture it as nibbling on very light meals, like lettuce.

Yeah, it means to eat very little, and I think windsong is saying that if she were to do that, her stomach would inflate. Like those ethiopian kids.

water wing I'm sorry to hear that...I've lost five pounds since I've come home. That's me eating only rice and veggies. It's healthy, I have to admit. *sigh*

I can't give blood to the blood donatation people now.
