Getting Ready To Go...and Go.... and Go... and Go....
« on: November 06, 2012, 09:35:27 AM »
So, the "go litely" is being chilled...
I have not eaten any solid foods since midnight....
And at 4:00 I shall begin ingesting the lovely litely in preparation for my endoscopy and colonoscopy tomorrow at 11:30 am at UM.
I shall be leaving working at around 11:30 to vote...
Although, I was thinking about starting the prep and then going to vote as that would certainly liven things up a bit...

Phil D:

The prep really is the worst part.  That stuff they made me drink tasted just god awful, it was everything I could do to get the second bottle down.

Having said that, the procedures themselves are easy schmeezy.  They gave me the option to be awake to watch it on the monitor and I said:  "Are you crazy?  No I don't want to watch, I don't want to feel, I want drugs and I want the good stuff!" 

And good stuff it was.  I didn't remember anything till around midnight when I got up for a glass of water.  It has some sort of amnesia effect.  I was forbidden to drive home, so damn fool took the day off to be there.

When the doc said later at the follow up everything looked great and he'd see me in 10 years, I said:  "works for me!".

I hope you get the same buddy.  Keep us posted and stay near a toilet> ;D

LOL - actually, I never eat leftovers.... In fact, I so hate them that my partner gets mad at me for throwing out food after one day....  I guess growing up in a lower middle class family of six where leftovers were many times the norm, caused me to deplore them.  I actually get rid of anything that I don't eat completely the day I cook it.... In fact, I have been known to defrost meat and not get around to cooking it that day and throw it out..... I have an "irrational" paranoia (phobia?) of eating meat that has been defrosted and not cooked the same day....   :o

I do remember buying some original strawberry ice cream the day before I got sick - I ate part of it and put it up in the freezer - the next day, I finished it off and it didn't taste quite right.... I think it may have been the culprit - which is further reason why I don't eat leftovers.....

I try to cook meal sized portions or share with friends so that I don't ever have leftovers and don't end up throwing them out.

I did have a grilled chicken sandwich earlier - which promptly came back out.....
And I stopped at Flanigan's and had a couple of Coronas and have a Big Daddy Burger with fries waiting to be eaten (and, yes, it will get eaten tonight -otherwise, it will be thrown out).

Those weren't leftovers, those were planned-overs.

Very true - good way to frame it -
Mom always made tons of spaghetti, mashed potatoes, meatloaf, rice, etc... and we would have it for a couple of days ---
And let's not talk about Thanksgiving --- turkey sammiches, turkey soup, turkey stew, turkey, turkey turkey - probably why I prefer to eat out on Thanksgiving - so that I am not stuck with left(planned)overs for days....

LOL - I'm sure some do....
I'm neither wealthy or poor - but have experienced levels of both at points in life - and just have a hard time doing the leftover thing...

Every now and then I succeed, but the "oldest" food I can eat is a day old.... more than that and it has to go in the garbage....

I don't like leftovers either.  First, they often never taste all that great.  I can heat up something; it doesn't taste all that great, then I have a bad association with that food.  It makes me not want to eat it fresh next time. 

I am also a tad paranoid.  They say food should not be left out longer than 2 hours.  We just made a pot of chili.  It is still too hot to put in the fridge, unless I want to drop the temp in the fridge by 20 degrees.  But, it probably isn't hot enough to keep bacteria from growing.  It usually takes at least 4 hours, before it is cool enough to put in the fridge.  It really is a dilemma.  If only I lived in a place where food was scarce and didn't have to worry about such things.  ::)

I fill the sink with ice water and set the pot in the cold water to rapidly cool down food so I can put it in the fridge sooner . I love leftovers and cook so as to have them . I am also careful of not leaving food out too long and have never been sick . Some food such as chili taste better on day two than when you first make it in my opinion .

See, that was way too simple for my mind to ever think up.  Don't know why that never occurred to me.  I agree that chili does often taste better the next day, after the spices permeate the meat. 

And, I do admit I am a crazy queen.  But, I'm in recovery.  It is one day at a time.  Let go, and let God.  Easy does it.

Glad everything down yonder checked out ok.  Now it's time to get some help with your eating disorder. ;)

Not eat leftovers?  tsk, tsk.  I make a huge salad and eat on it all week long.  I NEVER throw out food, as you'll be struck with God's lightening bolt if you do.  Or it it Zeus?  Can never keep those 2 straight.

Glad to hear you checked out ok, Phil.

I'm wary of eating left-overs that are more than a day or two old as well but after having hiv related gut issues for over ten years, I've learned that one the hard way. It doesn't take much to set me off running for the toilet. Food poisoning sucks and more-so when your guts don't tolerate much to begin with.

Ted, another thing you can do to safely store leftovers like what you described is to heat the pot up until it's super-hot and put a lid on it for a few minutes before you take it off the heat. Don't take the lid off until it's cooled enough to put in the fridge (and if you're putting the pot in the fridge instead of transferring the food to another container, don't take it off at all). You can still speed up the cool-down process by putting the pot in cold water, just don't take the lid off until it's cool.

I find a lot of food tastes better the next day or even the day after that. I just try to be careful about how the left-overs are stored or I pay the price and so does my tender butt.

Oh, and another thing - don't re-heat rice, whether you've made it yourself or have it left over from a Chinese take-away. Re-heated rice is one of the leading causes of restaurant food poisoning, not the idea that the meat was really cat or whatever people usually blame it on. I learned that from a course a pub landlord I worked for took in order to be able to serve food.

I do too!  I even freeze individual containers because I prepare an entire pot of fried rice and vegetables.  I ate that every day for an entire week while recovering from surgery.  Reheated of course.

Phil, you have sure had a lot of "medical" things happen to you this year. 

I do eat leftovers.  I've eaten them when poor, and when better off.  Even now, Sundays I'll make a big meal and save left overs for the first few weekdays.  It depends what it is on how long I'll eat it.  I usually don't eat pork after 3 days, but most other things will eat for up to 4 or 5 days. 

Phil, I hope next year is better for you, medically. :-*
