I was NOT on vacation

Well, I am back, more or less.  I had a brief interlude with the medical professions after having an 'minor' infection expand into something altogether life threatening.  The details not being altogether that interesting, or even fully understood, I managed to land in the hospital for 14 days with some pretty serious challenges to overcome.  It is amazing that with no external trauma or dramatic acts, you can somehow just fade into dire condition.  It is also amazing what the medical profession can do to keep you ticking while your body heals itself.

This little interlude will have an effect on this blog however.  I have been directed to make a concerted effort to limit my daily protein intake to no more than 7 ounces of protein er day.  Yes, per day, 7 ounces, I mean, 7 ounces of meat is a snack!  That means my daily limit if now similar to what I used to eat for a single meal. I anticipate that I will not really return to cooking for another week or two and this return will be marked by some changes, I suppose, to how I eat.

I suppose when you see changes like this, they are best faced as challenges to one's knowledge and skill.  How will BBQ fit into my new dietary lifestyle.  it is gonna be interesting.


  1. Yikes! I'm glad you're up and about, even if your diet is going to be less fun for a bit.

  2. First of all, I am so glad that you are okay!

    Secondly, I think you'll be able to incorporate meat into a healthier diet.

    Thirdly, it could be worse....they could have limited you to 7 oz of beer TOO ! ;) :)

    Seriously, glad you're okay.

  3. grilled tofu and Boca burgers?
