I have a cold. We had an office lunch today - BBQ. Tasted like the pork ribs had been boiled. I commented to a friend, wondering if the cook had boiled or baked them yesterday and just tossed them on the grill to heat them up. She looked at me funny.
Then I realized that I couldn't taste the BBQ sauce. I didn't eat but 3-4 bites off the country rib and probably just a bite or two of coleslaw.
So I went to the dessert table. Got a small piece of chocolate brownie...with no flavor...just one bite. A half-slice of homemade apple pie...VOILA!!! I could taste the tart-sweet apples. I love good crust, but I couldn't taste it so just speared the apple slices and ate them.
I wrapped the ribs and brought them in. DH said they were delicious.
If I don't lose 10 pounds this week, I'm going to be ROYALLY TICKED OFF!
Sometimes this happens to me too... just don't feel like eating, the smell of food turns me off... that's when I say to myself... self, we're going to live off the fat of the land today... works every time!

Sherry, I think I'm catching your cold!! My nose has been stopped up and now I'm sneezing like crazy! If I lose any weight, I'll come back and thank you. This message has been edited. Last edited by: CA Lori,
Hubby is all stopped up now. Really, I am so sorry. I don't like sharing this stuff. I also really don't understand how he caught it. We sleep in separate beds now mainly because of the snoring. But before that, if one of us was sick, I went to the other bed. That generally works. Not this time.
My entire family and I are just getting over that type of cold. I don't remember in the past having a cold where my taste buds were noticeably affected but even my young son mentioned that food wasn't tasting right.
In anticipation of that fact, I made a quart of chocolate cinnamon ice cream in the middle of the afternoon. Had a couple of scoops after a supper of broccoli with cheese, a couple slices of fried green tomato, and a small piece of pork loin. Taste buds are definitely improving!!
