Ass Burger Boy and myself were talking about “the Nan”, which is what everyone called my Mom. She had many quirks, as most people do, but we found hers an endless source of amusement.

Ma was a cooking fool. I well remember her baking bread at the same time she had a hoover washer/spin dryer hooked up to the sink. Just imagine piles of wet laundry, and flour flying in clouds. This was a regular activity.

She would make up a huge batch of something to have leftovers which she could freeze. If she had leftovers that didn’t make it to the freezer, and she was suspicious that it might not be at its peak freshness, she was quick to offer food to anyone who visited.

If it seemed a bit off, I would 86 it. ABB has a real problem throwing away food, and sometimes it worked to his detriment. Every once in a while he got the squirts after being at the Nan’s.

Today, we had a decision. I made a shephard’s pie which was yummy, but the next day, we both had the squirts. I wasn’t really sure what caused it, but decided that if we were going to eat the remainder of the very large shepherd’s pie, it was going into the oven as if it were never cooked previously.

I had a large portion, showing no fear. ABB had a smaller portion, which for him, is unusual. That boy can chow down.

I guess we will see what tomorrow brings, won’t we?

Shaddap, Ma. I hear you laughing at me.

I am SUCH a food freak – if it made me sick the first time (regardless if it was actually the food) I would not eat it again.) Like four years ago, I had a sundried tomato, spinach, pinwheel steak to cook on the grill – from a local grocery – and it made me sick….or something did. I still have not bought another pinwheel steak from that grocery. My sister says I am OCD about it….snort.

I am also one who has a huge problem throwing food out. And speaking of the squirts guess who had them @ 2am as a result of god knows what? ME!

Now I’ve lost 3 pounds right before my evil OBGYN appointment, great!

Keep us posted on the Shepard’s Pie progression… Hope it goes better the 2nd time around.

I’m pretty sure that all shepherd’s pies give the squirts. But they taste soooo good.

I toss out any and all suspicious food! If it smells a bit off, or I’m not sure how many days it’s been in the fridge…out it goes. But now that I think about it…think of all the laxatives that one could skip if they just ate old food?
