A totally salicylate free diet is proving hard.
I have twice been out for turkey dinners. Even by avoiding stuffing and picking and choosing vegetables it seems hard to avoid the herbs that get into the cooking. Tonight's of turkey slices, brussels sprouts and roast potatoes was not particularly pleasant nor did me any good.
Sunday lunch was possibly the worst I've had in my life, consisting of hard, dry chicken pieces, undercooked cabbage and roast potatoes.
By Christmas Day I think we will have worked out how to make herb and pepper free gravy.
Last night I ended up having a sort of Chinese-Italian meal. Spaghetti topped with mince stir fried with soy sauce, cabbage, celery and potato slices. Not bad if I could work out how to make it a little juicier.
I have purchased two papayas but have no idea how to eat them. I don't dare cut one open for fear it will need hours of preparation. My latest purchase of bananas is nearly gone. Also obtained some cashew nuts which were excessively salty and pretty tasteless once the salt was washed off.
