Yesterday I cooked a whole Cornish Hen in my Smart Cooker / Instant Pot and I knew I wanted a nice rich gravy to go with it.

Using these recipes for inspiration – I had a delicious gravy in no time!

Stuffed the cavity with the herbs and lemon and set on a low trivet stand with 1ยฝc of the previous stock I had made. Rubbed oil on the top only, seasoned with salt / pepper and chili powder – season any way you like. It’s good with Italian Seasoning or even a dry ranch mix.

THAWED: Cook 20min on Pressure + Quick Release
FROZEN: Cook 35min on Pressure + Quick Release
My bird was somewhat thawed so I split the difference and did 25min.

Once finished and cool enough to handle, move to a baking tray and broil (or air fry) for 5min to crisp the skin.

I stripped the meat off once cool and used the carcass in some Lemon & Herb Poultry Bone Broth (it will be in tomorrow’s post once it’s finished)

I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since I started my 12wk Reset. At the time, I took egg whites out for 6 months because I reacted to them and today I retested by having whole eggs – still a no go…

I can have them as an ingredient in some things like pasta or mayo, but as far as just eating the whites on their own or as part of the egg itself… Nope nope…

This was the third test so that pretty much decides it. I’ve reacted, not horribly but enough, that they need to just go on the permanent – not a good idea – list.

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ COOKING FOR SANDY DAY
3 days a week, I cook meals for a neighbor who had a stroke last year and has limited mobility. We often share a meal kit or something similar and spend some time together since neither of us go out too much ๐Ÿ˜ Today is one of her days. I’m enjoying having someone to cook for again.

I hadn’t been able to get down to Sandy until today but I was still cooking for her and putting things together… She is very well stocked now!

๐ŸงŠ FREEZER MEALS ๐ŸงŠ
2x Beef Red Wine Stew
2x Chicken Parmesan Bake
2x Southwest Chili
2x White Chicken Chili
2x Broccoli Cheese Soup
2x Cheese Tortellini Soup
2x Pesto Stuffed Shells
2x Shepherds Pie
1x Italian Wedding Soup

I reorganized her freezer and labeled these left from my last freezer round – a bit of freezer Tetris later and she is all set for months.

2x Chicken & Dumplings
2x Butternut Squash Soup
2x Potato Leek Soup
1x Pork Stroganoff

๐Ÿž ENGLISH MUFFIN BREAD LOAF
All the crispy, crunchy goodness of a well done English Muffin, full of butter hugging nooks and crannies – but in loaf form – what Magick is that??

I saw this recipe from Restless Chipotle come across my Facebook and I thought – hmmmm, even I, the non baker, should be able to do that. Let’s give it a try shall we? #experimentsineating

Here is the recipe

https://www.restlesschipotle.com/english-muffin-bread



Here is my #experimentsineating video

I thought for sure I had royally screwed it up somewhere – I have made 1 other bread in my life – I don’t bake cakes or cookies – I’m just not a baker…

But this was so good – like dangerously good. I had 2 pieces for lunch and another 2 with dinner. I’m going to have 2 with my Pub Style Split Pea Soup tomorrow. It’s just that good! Even if I did mess it up…

๐Ÿฑ DINNER ๐Ÿฑ
๐ŸŒฎ TACO BELL STEAK POWER BOWL

Boy, what an evening! I made Sandy lunch. Got ready to take it to her and was putting some for me in a little container for dinner.

I ate probably three or four tablespoons out of the crock pot as I was doing it. I was starting to leave to go to her and all of a sudden I had shooting pain in my back and my chest was super tight like when my BP gets too high.

I messaged her that I needed a few more minutes and I came and laid down but had a pretty nasty reaction. I was laying here trying to think of what could have possibly caused it and the only thing that I bought different was Dollar General was out of the cream of mushroom soup that I had bought the last time so I bought the Clover Valley one. Obviously didn’t read the label well enough and had a big tight chest reaction.

I didn’t want her to not eat because of my stupidity so I went down to her and then eventually came home and lay down for a couple of hours. It eased off a little bit and I decided because the Kroger ad changes tomorrow and some of the stuff I was out of goes back to normal price, I was going to go ahead and go into town.

I walked around Kroger like a super Nana for over an hour and by the time I was finished, it was 9:30. I knew I wasn’t going to have any of that pork and I hadn’t taken anything else out so I decided to get a modified Power Bowl from Taco Bell so I could sit, rest and eat something before driving home. Whew!

What I have never understood is why I react to some things so strongly like 3tbsp of condensed soup mix but then there are places like Taco Bell, Wendy’s, Tampico – my local Mexican place, Shoguns – my local Sushi place, Yummy Japan – my local Hibachi and Peking House – my local Chinese that I know have ingredients with food additives but I don’t generally have a problem with – certainly not like that.

On the other hand, McDonald’s, KFC, Burger King, Sonic, Bojangles = definitely problems… I have discovered over the years since this started where I can go and what I can get and generally be okay…

But it is still unexplainable why I am okay with some places and others cause this kind of reaction…

๐ŸŽ CORE NOTES
๐Ÿ…พ๏ธ These items are not True Zero on Core (as in indefinite amounts) but they are 0 by nutritional value at the serving sizes I used. All details are in the recipe cards on the blog.

๐Ÿงˆ PERSONAL PROGRAM TWEAK DECISION
I am not a fan of oil in cooking – both from a taste and texture perspective so I very rarely use my 2tsp/day.

1tbsp of this particular butter (not regular butter) is less calories, less total and saturated fat and the same 0 fiber as 2tsp of oil. They are both 9g servings.

So for me, and this is just a personal decision, I am going to allow 1tbsp/day in place of the 2tsp/oil. Any after that counts as per normal, just like the oil. But if you see this butter tracked as 0 for 1tbsp, that is why.

These 3 have exactly the same nutritional value
