Judy, you amaze and inspire me with how you keep trying. Although you have issues with taste and texture you still give it a go.

Yes Iím pretty stupid arenít I Chookie, I waste a lot of time and ingredients on things I try and end up throwing out but Iím not going to give up just yet. Last time I visited my SIL I told her not to bother about lunch as I donít like people having to worry about what to give me. She ended up having made a jelly and gave me the choice of custard, yoghurt and/or ice-cream with it. A perfect lunch LOL. Winter of course is easy, I virtually live on soup.  Recently NQR opened a branch reasonably close to me so I had a good browse through the shop, so much stuff and good prices with use by dates less than normal supermarkets but not out of date. I came across bottles of different types of soups but I just bought one bottle of this one just in case I didnít like it. Most meals from supermarkets are horrible for me, believe me Iíve tried a few. I added a scoop of Sustagen to this one and it really was quite nice, it being the most like home cooked soup than anything Iíve tasted. I went back earlier this week and bought 4 more - just $1 a bottle and I get 2 meals out of it.

Marina thereís probably nothing wrong with the recipe, I can tolerate different foods at different times so never know how anything is going to taste anymore. The original was flavourless and my additions just made it taste horrible and it shouldnít have.  The fact that Iím rarely feeling hungry doesnít help, who wants to eat when theyíre not hungry. I just have to live with this, itís hardly likely to change after 2.5 years and thank goodness I enjoy my Sustagen smoothies and many desserts are nice too.  I only have 2 meals a day now but Iíve got to the stage where my fitness level seems to be back to pre-op days so I really donít have anything to complain about. I do like Asian flavours so Chookieís suggestion is next on my list when I feel like having another go at something different.

Cookie, that strange mango trifle I make could possibly change into strawberry or raspberry quite successfully.
Mab, sounds like your TMX scales canít be relied on. The success of the Portuguese loaf relies upon 2 things. The first is the proportion of water to flour and secondly the 40 minute hydration. Iíve tried messing about with both of these and the loaf isnít as good. The only trouble Iíve had is with the baking. Iím afraid my Euro oven is rubbish. Small cakes ok but bread burns and after 10 minutes I have to cover loaf with foil.

Sorry to hear that the sauce didn't work out for you Judy, despite your experiments.  Was the taste too strong, not strong enough or just not interesting?  It sounds like you are still finding quite a few things that you used to enjoy but can no longer tolerate.  Such a long-term learning curve for you.

I made Chookie’s Mango Fluff trifle. It was delicious. I had one plain one left.

Marina, yesterday I made the sauce you suggested (Carolines), served it over pasta but it wasnít anything special to my tastebuds so I thought I would add some cheese, garlic powder and a tiny bit of tinned salmon for tonightís dinner. I served it over Bronís garlic rice which I had in the freezer but 1 mouthful and I knew it wasnít going to work for me.  I made a batch of the rice some time ago and froze it in 1/2 cup portions, I thought I would be able to eat it with something saucy but apparently not. I used to love tuna but now I donít (my specialist said this would happen with some foods) so I thought Iíd use the can of salmon already in the pantry but itís no different to eating tuna. Itís all a matter of trial and error and Iím lucky if 1 out of 10 works for me. I havenít given up yet as I still love to cook.  I ended up having a scrambled egg, tomato & avocado followed by trifle.
