I don't eat all of these foods and I don't say that they're all great - but some of them I do eat and think they're good

it's pretty interesting - to me anyway - how long they've been around -



Cheerios - 83 years old -

Quaker Oats - 150 years old

Folger's coffee - 174 years old

Campbell's soup - 155 years old

Oscar Mayer has been around since 1883 - the first Wienermobile hit the road in 1936

Wonder Bread started in 1921

Pepsi Cola in 1898 and Coca Cola in 1886

and yes Coca Cola did originally contain wine and cocaine - it was created by a wounded Civil War Officer who was addicted to morphine and wanted to create something less addictive

after America outlawed alcohol Coca Cola was reformulated as a soft drink

Jello has been around since 1897 and Pillsbury since 1872

Oreo Cookies came out in 1912 but they didn't become a sandwich until 1921

Skippy peanut butter started in 1933 and Heinz ketchup in 1876

Quaker Oats fairly recently retired Uncle Ben's White rice which came out in 1943 and the Aunt Jemima pancake mix which came out in 1926 because they perpetuated racial stereotypes

Ritz crackers have been around since 1934

M&M's have been around since 1941

Time to start checking those Best-By dates. Although they did find a ship that sank during the Civil War in the 1980s and all the canned goods on board were still good. 155-year-old Quaker Oats though, I'd probably toss that one.. LOL

I took the leftover chicken breast from last night's oven bake and made sandwiches out of it with Swiss cheese and Dijon mustard. Cooked them in the George Foreman. Made terrific tomato soup and one of the ingredients was the liquid from the cans of canned tomatoes with green chilies from last night. What a great meal.

What’s the sodium count in the bread, mustard, cheese and canned tomatoes?

Was the mustard from a nine-pound food auction jug ?

I made cabbage steaks and brushed them liberally with a spicy oil I made and baked them for an hour. I then topped them with the remaining leftovers from the chicken breast oven bake two days ago, added some Parmesan cheese on top and holy cow. I kept talking to myself, going holy crap this is good. The oil penetrates the whole cabbage and the leftover chicken on top is super tasty two days later. I ate half of this so I can do it again tomorrow.

The leftover cabbage steaks from yesterday topped with creamed chicken. It might have been even better today. There are well-known chefs that have recipes that call for you to put the finished dish in the fridge for 2 days before you even serve it because it adds so much flavor. And there are people that won't even eat leftovers, I never waste anything.

My wife has discovered frozen yogurt bars lately and she's crazy about them. Especially this one, she talks about it all the time about how much she loves it. Dang things are expensive, $5 for 14 oz and you can buy a half gallon of Breyers ice cream for under $5.

Firstly, the old half gallons now weigh 48 oz but everybody and I mean everybody still calls them half gallons. And here's the local Walmart price for the 48 oz Breyers. Do you even live in the United States?

If they are 48 ounces they are not 1/2 gallons. You can spin it any way you want, but you are just wrong. ‘Everybody’ calls a 48 ounce package a half gallon? Not anyone I know.

Everyone I know calls them half gallons. My wife does, my kids do, my wife's sisters do, I don't know anybody who doesn't call them half gallons. In fact I was at a food auction a couple weeks ago and they had a pallet of Great Value vanilla ice cream and the auctioneer called them half gallons about a dozen times and nobody said a word because everybody calls them half gallons. At one time they were half gallons and they changed but they still look the same and people didn't change the name for them. What you call them or don't call them is not my problem, I don't live where you live. Around here they're called half gallons, like it or lump it.

Why is it called a half gallon if it's only 1.5 ...
So as much as I love ice cream, you'd think I'd be paying a bit closer attention to its actual packaging, but in fact, it was my wife who recently pointed out to me that the "half-gallon" cartons we've been buying at the grocery store are, in fact, not half-gallons at all; they contain 1.5 quarts.

In 1984, the old man in the bar complained that a half liter was too small for him, a full liter was too much, and that he wanted a pint.

In that case though, I assume he was talking about a full UK imperial pint, of 568 ml (20 fl oz).

it's shown here with chocolate cake but they served it with vanilla cake which I prefer - couldn't find a really good pic of that

it was 𝙎𝙄𝙉𝙁𝙐𝙇𝙇𝙔 𝙂𝙊𝙊𝘿

Hot Shoppes also had a great burger experience which they called the "Mighty Mo" - see pic - it was kinna like MickyDees Big Mac but all of the ingredients, especially the burgers themselves were of higher quality - the special dressing they put on the Mo was awesome - like totally

Sauteed onions, green pepper, cubed turkey topped with eggs. The trick is cook down the onions and peppers till they're almost caramelized then add the turkey for a few minutes and crack the eggs into a bowl and pour them into the frying pan all at once, carefully. Cover over medium heat and when they're about half done keep the lid on and take it completely off the heat. This way you'll get perfectly cooked soft egg yolks every time. If you have this just once you'll want to eat it 100 more times. Add cheese to it and you might pass out.

Today, for breakfast,a bowl of a mixture of Raisin Bran Crunch and Special K With Blueberries;
for lunch, a can of Campbell's Chunky Minestrone with Italian Sausage soup;
for dinner, some leftover pasta shells stuffed with chicken breast, mozzarella/provolone, and spinach, cooked in Alfredo sauce and more mozzarella/provolone.

Trust me, none of these are particularly camera-worthy.

Kind of a goulash made with broccoli and made with ground turkey instead of ground beef.

To me that looks like something that should be fed to goats.

Baked chicken covered in sauteed onions, green beans, cauliflower rice, cherry tomatoes. Lots of fresh garlic this was really good.

I am on the road this week so my diet is probably a little better than when I am at home.

Today I opened my bag of beef jerky at 10am and finished it by 6pm. I will not be eating anything else today.

Why would you need to eat anything else. There is probably more than a thousand calories and 70 G of carbohydrate in that bag. Not to mention 4500 mg of salt which is twice the daily amount you should be eating. In fact with all youe problems that you related to us you should be eating half that you should be eating about 1300 mg a day of salt.

I try and make enchiladas three times a month and it's a lot easier since I've been going to the food auction. They have frozen cooked pulled pork in bulk and frozen cauliflower rice in bulk. These are great time savers and I can put together this dish in no time.

It was about 900 calories (90 per ounce). twice the daily allotment of salt is less than half my usual amount.

That much salt would probably do me in.
I did have a fairly small bag of Honey BBQ potato chips, which was "only" 1000 mg of sodium.

Medical has me on a temporary junk food diet, so who am I to argue?
I already miss green vegetables, but I can go back to normal next week.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Now that looks nice, but you should probably add some raw vegetables in your menu. A nice Greek salad as a side won't hurt this meal.
