Food by Mum

26 Apr

So, I haven’t written in for-evah! Ack! I was way busy then lacking in internet…no, that’s not quite right, the way busy part is but then I was out of town and there was internet but I couldn’t get on it…no, that’s not quite right either, I had my laptop but to get it online I would have had to plug it in to be connected so no internet…nooooo, wait, that’s not right either, I could have used the computer that was already there but everyday I was busy working (like manual labour working, ugh) so by the time it was evening and I was chilling I was too tired to want to bother with getting online with a computer that is not my own. lol. I am quite lazy at times, duh.

What was I doing you ask? I drove all day thursday to get to my parents (they are one province over) so I could help with some stuff around the house – and get to hang out with them for a bit. 🙂 It may be a long drive but it is totally worth it!

You know how all (well, ok, most) parents let their kids store all that random shit they (the kids) collect over the years and aren’t ready to part with but also don’t want to take with them when they move? Well my parents have 3 of us kids and we all left stuff behind; that poor basement has turned in to one big storage unit. lol. My parents are hoping to move sometime this summer so they have started The Big Clean (as I like to think of it), renovations, decluttering – all that kind of stuff. When I informed my mom I had a 4 day weekend thanks to Easter the time was pounced upon as perfect for me to come home for a visit and as a time for me to go through all my stuff and sort it in to (a) throw it out/recycle it (b) sell in the upcoming yard sale or (c) give to friends who will utilize it. Fun huh?

It’s funny, normally when I go back for a visit I don’t get to see my parents all that much because all my friends there wanna see me and trying to fit everybody in is freakin hard! So this time…we didn’t tell anybody I was coming. haha. I was all incognito, super stealth mouth-kept-shut girl, crazeeeee! teehee

How does this all relate to food? Here’s how: I spent 2 days eating varying levels of good and crap stuff (thursday and monday – the days I was on the road) and in between those days I spent friday, saturday and sunday eating oh so yummy made by my mummy home cooked meals that were in larger portions then I am used to eating – so, I’m not sure if it was an “oops” or not…ya know? Cause, well, I didn’t cook the food, or portion it on to my plate and I was so excited to be eating food made by my mom that I ate it all. Mmm! I don’t regret any of it but I really have no idea what my points are like for the days I travelled and visited. shrug. Ah well, you only live once! 🙂

I just realized I made it sound like I was eating massive portions or something lol, I wasn’t! It’s just that when I cook I make enough for me for one meal and I measure everything I eat, when I was at my parents I eyeballed my portions which leaves me feeling uneasy cause what if I think I am taking a good portion size but in actuality am taking way more then I should be??

While I may not have the points for what I ate I can give you a list of all the amazing food…

Friday: tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich, Mexican casserole, mixed cooked veg, apple pie, yogurt and a Guinness.

Saturday: Pa Peterson’s cheeseburger and fries with gravy and a slush (from one of the best fast food burger places ever that is in danger of shutting down so I am glad I got to eat there one last time!), mixed fruit (berries), meat loaf with green beans and baby potatoes, oh, and a Guinness in the evening

Sunday: family brunch – scrambled egg, 2 pancakes, stuffed french toast (1/2 piece), turkey bacon, hash browns, oh, and cool whip and fruit for the pancakes, there was also a mimosa to start the morning off right and then dinner was a full turkey dinner with turkey (duh!), stuffing, baby potatoes, yorkshire puddings, veggies and gravy, and of course a Guinness in the evening lol

Monday and Thursday were on the road so both those days I ate food I took with me and food I bought along the way – which means some of it was healthy and some of it was not. lol. What is it about road trips that inspire me to eat junk food? I think it’s a throw back to when I was a teenager and in my early teens, I would go on road trips and all we would eat was junk food and it was perfectly fine. shrug. It’s not so fine anymore, sigh. For one thing I worry more about the calories I eat and for another I feel kinda gross today. sigh.

All weekend I was fine, even though I was eating larger portions then I normally eat it all settled well, it all tasted great and well, everything was fine. Yesterday however, I think I crossed a line I didn’t know my stomach had and just pushed it too far. Oops. It was the chocolate, I know it was and even when I realized it wasn’t settling happy in my tummy I kept eating it (sometimes I swear chocolate is addictive lol) so the uncomfy sensation is totally my fault, it sucks. 😛

Today I took it easy for the most part, being kind to my tummy an all that lol. I also picked up some probiotics when picking up my groceries after work today and will be popping one of those soon, I am hoping it will help – I’m sure it will. 🙂 If I hadn’t eaten that chocolate I wouldn’t be having this problem and it’s kinda nice knowing that I was able to eat all that home made food and digest it with no problems, aaahhhhh, gettin back to normal.

Oh, and guess what my mom did for me? She made me a turkey sandwich and a meat loaf sandwich for the road so I ate the turkey when actually on the road and the meat loaf sandwich tonight with some soup for dinner. It is sad the food-by-mom is now gone (all eaten by me lol) but it was yummy while it lasted. 😀
