Prompt for the Day: “Feast”

The apparently starving people at the Daily Post group of Word Press would like us to make them salivate by creating works of art based on the word “Feast“.

Thanksgiving Only Feast Anticipate

Even them, I only eat moderately.  Gaining weight is not something my body can handle.  Have to be able to move myself through out our home.  Hoisting my slight frame from my wheelchair to other fixtures here takes both concentration and my limited supply of energy to complete!

Pumpkin Pie is the only variety of pie I will eat, since the filling tends to be a healthy one that is low in the sugary fattening gunk.  Not fond of putting whipped cream on top, either.  However my husband introduced me to the concept of topping the pie with a scoop of ice cream!  Who can say no to ice cream?  Not even a lactose intolerant person like me.  Simply have to take 2 dairy digestive pills with my first bite.

When I was little, enjoyed going to my grandparents for meals on holidays.  Grandma would have the table piled overflowing with delicious food!  Great salads, vegetable dishes, and savoury meats.  The desert selections kept all the relatives eating for days with all the left overs she made for us grand kids!

Now that grandma has passed away, my mom is the one in charge of making the family holiday meals.  She used to help grandma by bringing along certain dishes she specialized in making, but no one helps mom these days.  The Thanksgiving meal is missing not only people that have passed on, but the family coming together helping create the feast!

Please Help Fight Evil Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely.

 

Prompt Stomp’s prompt for the Day: “SWEET”

Since most people spent the day yesterday indulging in candy and other sweets, the prompt for the day wants is to explain what is sweet to us exactly.  Having strange tastes since I was little, not a good person to get food suggestions from.

When I attended a baby shower when I was three years old with my mom, they were serving lots of food.  I chose a piece of chocolate cake and a dill pickle.  Had the women joking about who was the pregnant one!  Loved dill pickles and the sight of chocolate always made me hungry.  Still do not see what the big deal was.

Today, I eat three Hershey’s Bliss Dark Chocolate pieces every single day.  Other than that, I do not eat sweets.  Hate most pies, except a small piece of home made pumpkin.  That pie does not make me feel ill.  My father-in-law makes wonderful pumpkin cookies.  Like to snack on those when they are available.

Do not turn down the chance for a Silk chocolate cheesecake slice when offered to me (have to have two dairy digestive tablets with me to take while devouring that treat).  Am sort of lactose intolerant.  The humorous part of this fact is I grew up on a dairy farm.  My father couldn’t understand why I didn’t like drinking milk.  It sort of made me sick to my stomach.  Not a very sweet thing at all for me!

If you are looking for some really good hot chocolate, visit the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory located in Estes Park, Colorado.  It is the best hot chocolate I ever had the pleasure of tasting!  Even drug my mom up to get a cup while they were visiting while we lived in that state.  Have not been able to replicate their drink’s mixture at home.
