Knowing that I've been dying to try one, Mr. G bought me a mashed pa'tater Bowl from KFC. While I love him for it, it wasn't exactly the best time for me to try it.
The cheese and milk from the pa'taters have me coughing like a chain smoker again. NOT that I've stopped coughing yet, but because I'm not 100% healthy yet, any time I eat anything I'm allergic to, the coughing goes wild.
Anyway, I tried about three spoonfuls of it and while it's delish, I think they should rename it "Sedative in a Bowl." Yikes. All those heavy pa'taters knocked me out. We haven't eaten white potatoes for a looooong time because of Mr. G's diabetes. IF we have a potato, we have yams instead. I had forgotten how bad the heavy carbs make me feel.
Speaking of really bad food, FINALLY a great show on tv for kids: Shaq's Big Challenge. Shaq is working with some kids to help them lose weight.
I think this is a GREAT idea because kids look up to him,
and he can use his influence to get them more physically motivated. After that
whole "Sedative in a Bowl" story, maybe I should get Shaq to call me....
