Ulcer Man

Remember this vaguely smug post about getting back on the wagon with meal-planning???

Do you hear the Universe laughing??

Hot found out he probably has an ulcer in his duodendum.  Or something like that.  Which beats the hell out of my google-diagnoses.  Actually the most amazing part to me is he was required to do three stool samples.  He went to the doc Friday afternoon and this morning he had the samples all bundled up and ready to go.  It would take me a month to get three stool samples.  Especially under pressure.

But what does this have to do with meal planning?

Oh right.

So now he's on an ulcer-guy diet.  I don't really know what this means since he can't find the paper that tells him what he can and can't eat.  But, basically, it appears to be a diet of bland pale foods.  No red meat.  No alcohol.  Limited fats.  Nothing spicy.

Well that shoots Taco Tuesday all to hell now, doesn't it? 

Until I figure out some recipes he's on a diet of baked potatoes, rice, chicken strips and canned soup.  Lots of crackers and cottage cheese. 

It might kill him.

But better eating and daily prilosec is making him feel better.... so we will roll with it.
