My One Remaining Food VICE — Mediterranean Spinach Swirls (A Variant Of ‘Spanakopita’).

by Anura Guruge



Alas, my supposed restraint when it comes to food still has its limits. I can’t, however hard I try, stop eating these $3 Mediterranean Spinach Swirls from Market Basket. HELP.

It really is killing me — slowly but surely.

Who would have thought that this would end up as my one remaining VICE when it came to food.

Yes, I confess, that maybe once a month, if she grudgingly lets me, I will eat 4 – 5 teaspoons of Teischan’s leftover ice cream (with any chocolate sauce that is lurking around) at a restaurant.

That is it in terms of sweets for the last 6 years (i.e., since January 22, 2013). No cake, no pies, no chocolates, no muffins, no donuts, no ice cream, no cheesecake, no cookies … And I love chocolates, pecan pie, apple pie and ice cream.

I stopped eating nuts 10-weeks ago. And I LOVE nuts.

I drastically cut back on cheese 10-weeks ago. I could live on cheese. I now have a bit every few days.

I dramatically cut back on food 10-weeks ago. I have lost xx pounds in the last 10-weeks. SMILE. Not telling you how much. I am moderately pleased. IF I can lose another 10 pounds I would be orgasmic.

So, during the last 10-weeks these spinach swirls have been my ONLY WEAKNESS! Honest.

Who would have thought. SPINACH — BAD FOR YOU.

Over the last decade I have really acquired a taste for spinach. I eat a LOT of spinach — in multiple forms.

Spinach is said to be good for you.

But, these $3 spinach swirls I eat are killing me. I would be better eating chocolate donuts.

Even the guy at Market Basket, who makes them, told me that they are BAD for ME! 500 calories each.

I have CUT BACK — over the last 10-weeks.

I used to eat 3 every 10-days or so. Sometimes 2 a day. It was KILLING I.

Then 10-weeks ago, I went nearly a month without eating even one. It killed me.

Then I started cheating. One every few weeks.

I had one TODAY — which I bought yesterday.

It is killing.

I am SO ashamed!

This is bad.

I wish I had more control over my diet.

DAMN!

Oh … what happened 10-weeks ago.

That was when I had my knee surgery and discovered my blood sugar had SHOT UP to 103! 103! Damn.

Not good. I am

My Latest ‘Wheels’ — Maybe The Spiffiest Of Them All.

by Anura Guruge


Click pictures to ENLARGE.


My very first time. Always wanted to try one out. Never had the guts.

Yesterday I had no choice. Wow. Easy to drive and very maneuverable. You can turn it on a dime.

Had bad luck though. No, NO, contrary to Teischan’s fears I did NOT run anyone over and I did not play bumper cars with any carts though I pretended like I was going to.

Had the battery on TWO — yes two — die on I! That wasn’t funny.

Hoping that this is not going to become a habit. I like to be mobile on my own two feet.

Oh, this was at ‘Market BasketRochester, NH.

Flowers Galore For 2019 Valentine’s Day — At Concord ‘Market Basket’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and ENJOY.


YOU know I can’t resist taking pictures of flowers — particularly so during the height of winter in New Hampshire when the temperature is in the 20s FAHRENHEIT, we have a few inches of snow on the ground and a foot or more of fresh snow on the way.

These were at ‘Market Basket‘ in Concord, New Hampshire. To be honest, I didn’t take pictures of all the flowers. It was quite busy and I didn’t want to get in the way of love-struck folk trying to buy flowers.

But, please ENJOY. Happy Valentine’s Day 2019.

P.S., I did buy two bunches of daffodils — that being the Welsh in I.

Yes, of course, I miss taking pictures of flowers. No flowers outside anymore. Just snow, ice and grey. But, plenty of pretty flowers inside.

I had a few minutes to spare today while shopping at ‘Market Basket‘ in Rochester, New Hampshire. So, I couldn’t resist.

Enjoy.

The New “Mooyah” In Rochester, NH, For A Double Burger For Lunch.

Mooyah” Burgers ¤ Fries ¤ Shakes opened at the Rochester, New HampshireMarket Basket‘/’Petco‘ shopping area — right next to ‘110 Grill‘ — quite recently.

Since I am partial to burgers, sans the bun, I was eager to try it out.

Got the chance on Tuesday when we went to ‘Market Basket‘. I walked across around 2pm.

Pretty fancy. Wasn’t crowded. LOT of staff — all exceptionally cheerful & friendly.

A tad pricey. More diner-like pricing rather than Wendy’s or Burger King. But, you can make your own burger. I liked that.

It was good. I didn’t have any fries or a shake. NO HOT DOGS.

Gather it is a chain/franchise from Texas.

It is NOT Shake Shack.

I might go again. Might not. Not sure. They didn’t totally ‘wow’ me over, but I am willing to give them a few tries. Must take Teischan. That would be the acid test; whether she gives the burgers a thumbs up. She is a burger connoisseur.

I very rarely shop at Shaw’s tending to prefer ‘Market Basket‘ and ‘Hannaford‘ — and I am pretty sure I had never been to this Shaw’s in Concord. I was blown away by the amount of flowers they had and the variety. Very upscale. We don’t see such in Alton and Rochester. I had left my camera in the Quest and had to go back and get it to take these pictures. I hope you like them.
