Potatoes and peas

The thought of some foods make me gag, but when I received my copy of U.S. Catholic at the office the other day, all I could think about was...that's right, potatoes and peas. So I rushed home and threw a bag of red potatoes in a big pot and I microwaved some Trader Joe's organic peas and had the perfect chemo meal. And had it and had it and had it (for several days). In fact, I have potatoes and peas in a Glad container right now on my desk. Which I need to remember to take home because I won't be here Friday and I bet it'll have a smell by the time I get back into the office.

Dullish white food is good right now. Pasta, potatoes, rice. Some cheese. People are commenting on my butt. They say, "Your butt is a lot smaller than it used to be." Wouldn't you hate to walk behind yourself all day and see exactly what your butt really looks like? So there are good things about chemo and cancer, but certainly there would be an easier way to lose a little weight. And you wouldn't think a bunch of carbohydrates would do it.

If you have any good white-food recipes, let me know.

Terri, I don't have your e-mail address.
I have a GREAT recipe for white bean soup that came from Barbara Crafton. It's terrific. I also have a wonderful white bean chili recipe (I'm from Texas, what can I say?).

Why don't I have your e-mail?

We're praying.
Love to you,
Mary Ann
