My beloved has decided to go on this GI Diet thing. It's all the rage down at the pub :? So he's cut out bread, cereals, pasta, pastry, potatoes and parsnips, virtually cut out all other root veg, cut down drastically on his formerly large fruit intake and now seems to be living on grease supplemented with a few greens and non-alcoholic beer and wine. Everything I wash is greasy – his plate, his pans / baking tray, dishes etc. It's very annoying.
He's cooking his own grease while I cook the reasonable bits of the meal. Bacon, eggs and cheese seem to figure highly in his meals. I'm trying to encourage him to do beans, legumes etc too but he's not keen. Tonight he's doing that thing where you take a very healthy chicken fillet then stuff it with cheese grease and wrap it in bacon grease. He'll serve it with mashed cauliflower cheese and maybe a daring carrot. I might have the remains of yesterday's lovely bean and many-veg casserole or I might chuck some veggies in with rice or pasta. No frying will be involved. I can't remember the last time I fried anything.
Did someone mention Jack Spratt and his wife?
