🍝 CHEESE TORTELLINI ALFREDO on a Weird Day

So today was a little weird. I thought I had a Dr Appt today at 1, but it turns out it was written down wrong and it is the 18th, not the 13th. So I fasted for bloodwork I didn’t have done, drove an hour round trip for nothing and then basically came home… 🤣

My original plan today was to do my appt, go buy dog food (next town over – 45min from home), do a Kroger shop, and then take myself to early dinner at my Chinese Buffet restaurant which reopened recently.

What actually happened was… I got very stressed trying to sort out this Dr thing, sat in the parking lot for ages, started to Kroger, almost got in two accidents (one person ran a red and someone else turned and almost T-boned me), decided it was wayyyyyy to “peoplely” out and I just needed to get back to my little hermit cave…

No dog food – ordered online instead
No Krogers – will go on Mon
No Chinese – maybe next week

The new Kroger ad started today and for the first time in weeks there are some good sales on fruit which I’m excited about.

I’m working on a menu plan for next week making some dishes I have never made but using some of my fridge / freezer goodies… . I’m going to eat as much fruit and veg as I can plan for until Mon, basically do a big clean out and get ready for a new shop.

I told Sandy some of my ideas and she said it all sounded good and to just surprise her and bring whatever. 😂 We are changing up her days this week a bit so we’ll see what happens…

Annnnyway – today was a very short food day…

If you aren’t familiar with my situation, basically I live with several autoimmune issues… an “inflammatory overstimulation response” brought on by my basic blood cells thinking they are Spartan Warriors and attacking everything in sight.

More information about what is wrong as well as the resources I’m using to track histamines and oxalates are here:
