--I had to go buy Miracle Whip without a sale or a coupon. That really hurt to do so. Usually, I have a coupon and use it on a store sale. Miracle Whip cannot be bought in a large quantity because of the use-by date. I am not that afraid of eating something past the use-by date. Usually, three ahead is all I can buy and still eat it within a tasty time frame.
There is no use making any kind of sandwich without Miracle Whip! I just put all the fixings back when I discover I have no more MW.
--Several weeks back, I received an invitation to attend two talks on a Friday and Saturday night. Dinner was free. Well, free is the right price for me. A doctor was the speaker and his subject was our health. There was no evidence of the sponsor of the event.
On the table I noticed a Seventh Day Adventist pen and commented. My friend noted that all the pens on the table were the same. Then, one by one, I saw several of my friends that I know are strong Adventists. Now, the sponsor became evident. No problem.
After the Friday meal, my friend commented that he was going to go eat a cow. In case you don't know, the party line in the Adventist faith is no meat eating. Well, I know lots who do eat meat.
The second night, I ate protein before I left home. My friend said he ate protein before he came. too. I saw a female friend later in the week. She commented the food was good but she was hungry when she left.
They filled our plates and brought them to us. I had to go to the window and get one of my Adventist friends to fill me a plate, leaving off the things I am allergic to. The second night, I was assured I would love the fake cheese. Unfortunately, they put it on my brown rice. I only ate a bit of the fake cheese and could tell it was going to cause an allergic reaction. It was made of cashews, one of my allergens. And, I love cashews but another will never knowingly pass through my lips.
Of course, I cannot blame them for my allergies. Thankfully, the dessert was fruit--pineapple, watermelon, and strawberries. There was cantaloupe, but I think I am allergic to that, too. At any rate, I don't like it.
The doctor had good health information. Maybe all meat is bad for us, but I am not convinced. The experienced enlightened me to this church's food, most of which was no different from what I eat anyway. I will continue to eat some meat.
--Have you ever eaten Manchengo cheese? It's made from sheep milk, very hard cheese and salty. Exbf hated it! I think this is the cheese a friend recommended to accompany my fig preserves. Machengo cheese is originally from La Mancha. It's delicious but I have yet the pair it with my fig preserves.
Since this cheese was about $14/lb, I now know why I never bought it. I did not buy this, either. It was shared with me by a friend.
Have you eaten as the Adventists do? Or, are you a dedicated mammal eater? Do you like Manchengo cheese? Have you tried it with fig preserves?
