I hadn't realized just how much I'd been eating dairy, recently, until I started taking Cipro (antibiotic). It requires that I abstain for two hours before taking, or six hours after. Since I'm taking it every twelve hours, that's about four hours (while I'm awake) that I can eat dairy.
We've been going through a lot less cheese, a lot less yogurt, and a lot less ranch dressing.
Concomitantly, we've been going through a lot more meat.
I've also discovered that pretty much all grains (except corn) make me feel sluggish to varying degrees. I try to keep those to supper.
Last night, I decided to try something different: enchiladas. The recipe is simple--just meat and cheese rolled up into a corn tortilla, and drenched in enchilada sauce, then cheese on top, bake 'til bubbly. I did half a dozen beef, half a dozen chicken.
They were really, REALLY good. Gooey good. There are leftovers, but less than half a pan. Both kinds were very good, but the chicken ones edged out the beef by a narrow margin.
I'm gonna try it again, but with taco meat, and a lot less sauce.
And in the meantime, I'm trying to plan supper...it's a cool, rainy day, so I have more options than I usually do, during summer weather.
And all this while I'm trying to ignore a major cheese craving that I can't indulge until 3:00.
