[quote=Lepreckaun]Meatloaf and chicken (thighs) are good too.I used to only eat white meat with chicken but found it is too dry so I switched to dark meat and can eat that with little difficulty. [/quote]

I hope this is not a blinding flash of the obvious, but what I finally figured out is that the more fat the meat has in it, the easier it goes down. I have already told my PCP that if the cholesterol goes up, then we will adjust the medicine to deal with it. I am going to eat!
So far, exactly the opposite has happened, it has gone down (Adkins paradox?) I had always know the the cheaper the hamburger meat, the better the hamburger, now I just look for the fattiest steak and give it the old salt treatment. http://steamykitchen.com/blog/2007/08/28/how-to-turn-cheap-choice-steaks-into-gucci-prime-steaks/
The only exception for me has been bacon, still too chewey....

A steak without fat is like a day with sunshine. You gotta have it for flavor and tenderness.

I made turkey meatballs yesterday and added fresh wheat bread crumbs I made. Fried them then added them to a sauce. They were very easy to mash in with the angel hair pasta. Just have to keep everything moist and it seems to work for me. I needed some good old home made and still have enough to freeze for future meals. I like to experiment with food LOL

Breakfast this AM was sunyside up eggs w a slice of whole wheat bread. Ww bread is very dry so I put my little iron skillet on a high fire and dropped the bread in while I got everything else ready. I took the bread out, dropped in the eggs and buttered the bread. When the eggs were ready, I put the bread back in for a few sec. I cut the bread in small piecs to soak up the yolks and it was easy to eat.

Eggs over fried buttered toast sure sounds like a winner. I'll try that for supper tonite. Thanks for the idea.

French toast is great too. I NEVER thought that eating food would be so much fun. If I had a little spit on the side things would be super great !!!!!LOL

Oh yes today was a KFC day. Took the fried skin off the thighs and ate two of them. mac and cheese and potaoes with LOTS of gravy and yea I had a bisquit too tons of gravy. I am not worried about gaining weight or anything else like that because my nutritionalist told me not to loose anymore weight but I am still loosing it. Before I came up with the C I coukldn't loose the weight I went from 170 to 130 and lost another two pounds so if I can get it down then down it will go. Just keep trying everything even things that you didn't like before because I have found that I can toletate them better now. I hate throwing away food but I have thrown enough away to feed a whole country it seems.But I keep trying.

Tonight Im going to try biscuits with butter and jelly. I will have my cup of water handy. It must be a southern thing, but here in PA cant get biscuits and gravy form McDonalds. I wish McDonalds had it, I used to love biscuits and sausage gravy.
