I thought I posted this before, but it must be flying about in the ether of the interwebs.

I should, but do not know is the hostess uses Tabasco, but I do know she uses freshly grated horseradish. As I wrote earlier, I only had one Mary, but had way too much corned beef and cabbage so I'm a bloated mess today due to the high sodium content. I've been drinking a lot of water and hopefully tomorrow my body will start flushing as I've very sensitive to sodium and also have high BP.

I pay when I indulge in corned beef, too. Love ruebens but they don't love me.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't Ruebens have corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Russian dressing? If so , that's a sodium bomb which is why I don't eat or cook them. That written, they're probably quite tasty.

A few years ago I spent some time trying to perfect a personal recipe for pastrami which is smoked corned beef. I reached the "okay" stage before I decided that I had to cut eating sodium laden food so often because I was constantly taste testing.

Oh yes, you have described them perfectly. Delicious, but I feel bloated for days after eating them.

It's a tradeoff for sure, especially if you're sensitive like I am. While on the subject, they have to be on rye bread I think.

What's sad is I know so much about something I never cook or eat.

Thanks for the confirmation. I got a big chuckle when I read your post and I would much rather engage in food discussions, whether I eat or cook the recipes or not, than why I drank. For the record I haven't but the latter would be another admittance of not following through so this is a much easier dialogue. Thanks SL!

Plans

My plan for the evening is to hit the hay soon. I'm feeling a bit of anxiety, for no rational reason, so I'm not sure how easy sleep will come, but I know I'm safe and being constructive on the third floor reading. My wife will be home in about 30 minutes from the gym and if I'm having any issues I'm going to rely on her as a resource.

I'm heading off early tonight, also. Hoping that I'm not getting that flu that is going around.

Hope you don't, but remember sleep and healthy fluids help. FWIW, my wife is a big proponent of zinc tables such as Cold Eze (SP?), we buy the less expensive generic version, as soon as symptoms appear.

I hope you're feeling better in the AM and thanks for being so supportive.

Feel better SL. I hear you guys about the sodium...I puff up like a puffer fish if I have anything even resembling salty. I probably over pepper most of my stuff to make up for the lack of salt.

Like you, I use a lot of pepper.

pepper? did someone say pepper?
I put that on everything. Seriously. Everything.

I see there are talks of ruebens? mmmmmmmmmm. on a dark rye.
and here in Canada, we love our Caesars (virgin of course)
I buy horseradish made by our local Mennonite community. YUMMO. and man does it ever pack a punch.

Yes, fresh horseradish has almost nothing to do with the jarred stuff.

I had to look up what a Caesar is; I've had them before, but not in a long time.

We actually make our own horseradish, it's very simple. Dig up the roots, peel them and grind them up and put it in a jar. It's definitely an operation you want to perform outdoors though...We did it one year inside and even the cat was running for cover from the fumes.

That must have tasted great along with the satisfaction of knowing you controlled the entire process. My wife's the gardener in the family so when she's planning this year's garden I'm going to suggest horseradish. Thanks Scott!

My wife has a book club meeting tonight so I'll be home alone for a few hours. My plan is to read both here and print stuff after dinner and go to bed at around 10. She'll likely be home by then, but I don't want to deal with any temptation and once upstairs my mindset changes. I'm also going to keep in mind that I'm going to be at the gym early tomorrow to deadlift. I also have some shoveling tomorrow. Again.

Thursday could be a shovelling day around here, too.

Spring is going to be so Sweet.

Stay strong, Gonnachange; you can do this.
