Thanks Joan.  If I had your digestive problems, I think I'd give-up.

The first day of my relatively minor problem, I ate nothing, just drank plenty of water.  The second day, just soup, with nothing solid in them.  The third day, soup with a few solids, and yesterday, a few more solid foods.  So far, I'm feeling well.

Spud, hope you feel better soon! I can sympathize with you after a Nothing By Mouth restriction, and then a liquid diet. Not fun! I like chicken broth with tomato paste. It makes a great soup. .

I've been eating just soup for 2 days now because my digestive system has been doing unpleasant things.  I was planning on making my own soup by pureeing vegetables, but I've been doing so much work in the garden, that I haven't felt like it yet.  Just been eating soup out of cans.

I tried something I've never tasted before.  I combined chicken stock with tomato paste, and it tasted good.

I wouldn't miss the garlic.  Kills the flavor of everything else in any dish.

Oooh, my breakfast omelet was so good this morning. I added mushrooms, ham, tomatoes, chives, garlic, and cheese. Just remembered I forgot the salt and pepper! Guess I didn't miss them.

Bone broth seems to be the latest "healthy food". I have a bagful of beef bones in my freezer, so I made up a large pot of vegetable soup the other night (slow cooker). I'd prefer pizza, but.....

Just finished Wheat Belly Total Health, by William Davis, MD. It is for people who either want to lose weight and/or improve their health (and who doesn't).                                                                         We've been told by all the "experts" and commercials that eating "healthy whole grains" is important (and wonderful). Well, Dr. Davis says "NOT TRUE". In fact, it's just the opposite. We weren't meant to eat "grasses". We not only can't digest them properly, they are unhealthy and make us fat. We need to remove grains, especially wheat (but including corn, rye, rice, etc) from our diet. He gives many reasons and benefits for excluding them.

Personally, I don't need to lose weight, but I am convinced I could improve several maladies by cutting back or totally stop eating grains. He mentioned arthritis (including osteo) could be relieved, for example. When I went on my cruise, I ate no bread (Why fill up on bread rather than all the good stuff?). In fact, I virtually ate no wheat or other grain foods. My arthritis disappeared! I wondered why (my sister said "prayer"!). After reading the book, I'm thinking is was exactly what he said. So, as soon as I clear out my pantry of cookies, crackers, pasta, cereal, etc., I'm going to find out. Like sugar, I'm not sure I can live without wheat products, but I'm going to try like hell to find out! You can be sure I'll keep you informed.

Anyway, it's an informative book. And, like The Big Fat Surprise book I read last winter, I'm learning (slowly) that things aren't always what they seem--or, you can't always believe what you're being told. Duh.

If my brother was still alive, I would ask him if I could go mushroom hunting with him, and have him teach me.  Only realized I wanted to do that after he was dead.

Dusted off the "Weber", fired up the charcoal, and cooked myself some chicken on the ol' grill. Tossed on some asparagus spears. Mmmmmm.  As an addendum to my previous comment, I've been to the woods thrice to hunt mushrooms, and found nary a one. Bummer.

MUSHROOM SEASON!!! I was picking up sticks in my yard when a tiny gray morel caught my eye.  Then another, and another! The floodgates opened, and I wound up with 46, about 10 being yellow morels. When I mowed, I discovered several more I had missed. This might be THE season. Yahoo!
