Lately I've had a few things rotating through my meals. Breakfast is just peanut butter on an English muffin, but I've been eating a lot of baked potatoes with toppings, skin and all. Also street tacos - A schmear of guac on a small corn tortilla, some crumbled cotija and maybe some crushed pineapple and a squeeze of lime on whatever meat I'm using. THis week it was a package of pulled pork that I cooked with chipotle peppers and cilantro.

Also, lately I'm loving the 25-cent ramen. I have sinus issues and it's easy to make if I want to send some steam through my nasal passages. I can add spice to it to really get things "moving" too. And, being on a budget, it's only 25 cents!

And I'll generally have a few baby spinach salads every week with dried cranberries, shredded beets and goat cheese.

It's just really easy stuff with minimal cooking for a kitchen that has no air conditioning. But it's also what I'm generally craving right now.

I notice I go through phases of eating things and then taper off.


Home made custard
Wrap sandwiches with fresh vegs inside.
Asian Salad kits
popcorn shrimp.


Then I usually start up again. Just bought some more shrimp because I had a coupon.


Last time I had a ramen meal I gained two pounds (water weight) over night. Those things are way too salty at my age.

Story of my (culinary) life. This year, I've made lots of chili. I'm diabetic, and it has so many good things for me. My blood sugar goes low when I go chilirific. I make it twice a week, a pound of ground meat's (85% chuck, chicken thigh, 7% fat turkey) worth at a time, or else vegetarian (in which I replace the pound of meat with extra onions, beans, green peppers). I use ancho chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and chipotle powder as my chili powder mix, and chop up serranos and add them with the onions.

I have been going out for pizza most times when I go out to eat lately. I get to eat carbs so infrequently now, but when I g out with friends, lately what I want is "good" pizza.

I get on a “must eat more fish less meat” kick,every so often. So I’ll make fish about 3x in a week, and then I go back to usual.

We tend to have 2 or 3 meals of the same ethnicity some weeks simply because they use similar ingredients so there's little to no waste of things that have to be bought in bulk like cilantro, cabbage, cheeses, etc.

That's what happens around here, too.



And I go on salad kicks. Lots of salads, then suddenly I'm sick of 'em.


Every summer, it's a watermelon kick. I go through one seedless every 3-4 days, all by myself. No, NOT those pretentious baby watermelons. REAL watermelons - Well, okay, seedless watermelons that are probably created with GMO. Who cares? They taste good and are cheap.

I eat mostly routine foods, creature of habit. I guess in the summer, my kick would be whatever fruits are plentiful. For example, I eat more blackberries and raspberries, they're more affordable. In the winter, more soups. Seasonal kicks.

I had steel cut oats for breakfast for months. Then I switched to English Muffins for awhile. Now I'm back to coffee and maybe a piece of buttered toast.

Definitely, especially when we're eating whatever's being harvested in our garden at a particular time.
