My stomach has been acting up the last three days which is very unusual for me. I looked up stomach soothing drinks and the closest thing we’ve got in the house is green chartreuse. Syrupy and generally nasty, but doing the trick on my stomach. And my head.

Jager or B&B. Both are thick,but pretty damn good tasting digestifs imo. And keeps the buzz going!

I’m not a fan of the original. 

Me neither, but I really like this.

I like B&B more, but its on the pricey side by comparison.

Never heard of that before... hope you are feeling better

Thanks, man. It’s weird. I had some aches and chills the first day, but no fever and no cough, so in spite of trying to convince myself I have covid, I know that I don’t. I still have an appetite other than worrying that after I eat is no fun, so it can’t be serious. I’m sure it’s from the fresh seafood I ate (crabs, scallops, and fresh tuna from a neighbor), but I’m still keeping away from others.

And the chartreuse is working on the bloating, so I’m good this evening.

I laughed when I saw this.  I have a very picky eater too.  She's still like that and she's EIGHTEEN.

I like Mrs.J's recipe list up there -- might try to add some in to our revolving list.  Unfortunately my wife does not like to cook at all, so almost all of it falls on me.

If you need any of the recipes just let me know.

Jager gives me the worst hangovers.

Have one shot as a nightcap. Don't do multiple shots to get drunk. That's the trick. B)

Oh my god. The only time I ever drank Jeger was once in high school and never again.

Bingo!

Do you ever switch a dish every so often, or maybe add a twist to a meal in the rotation?

Beef is a good choice because you can use it in a bunch of different ways, as shown by the burgers and meatloaf. Didn’t finish the burgers? Break them up, toss them into the spaghet. 
It’s all fun and games until you dig some green freezer burnt mystery meat out of the freezer.

lol, true. I buy 1/4 beef off a local guy, he only raises 7 or 8 head a year. He only grass feeds with occasional grain when necessary. No hormones or junk like that, a Mennonite family cuts up/butchers each year. Used to do 1/2 back when wife was alive and the son was still home. I only eat chicken/pork when out due to that.

for what its worth, my husband went through a similar 3 day bout of a very nasty stomach last week. we were doing the same, "its not covid, its not covid..." he was religiously checking his temp and no fever, but he had aches and chills too. he's fine now. 

feel better. and try not to get into your head too much, easier said than done, i know.

Yep we buy from a local grass fed farm here in Frederick. They sell by the cut and keep it as freezer beef. So you can go in weekly and load up if you want. Like this week I need 2 lbs. ground beef and a flank steak. They run specials also and you can get bulk with a price discount. We do not eat a lot of red meat so this option works great. And I love seeing the cows out grazing as I drive in. Taught my girls where their food came from.

Nervous stress most likely. Take care brother.

Medical marijuana works wonders on my chronic stomach issues. A couple puffs and 30 minutes later I'm ready to eat.

It’s interesting that you bring this up, though not for me. I’m feeling way better today and normally don’t have gastro issues. However, my mom is getting up there in age (she’s 79) and says she lives in chronic pain. She’s complained about it for years, gets shots, takes pain meds, etc.  I’ve suggested medical marijuana, and I think she’s finally willing to try it, but have no idea what’s involved in getting it for her.

My son had a really bad day but he took it like a champ. His cat died, he got an ear infection and found out he can’t go in the pool for 2 weeks and then his favorite character in Star Wars rebels died. He said to me “you shouldn’t have let me watch that tonight”. Lol. He asked how to say goodbye in cat language at the vet then when we were burying Lilly said “I will miss you I hope we see you when we dead someday”.  At bed time he simply said “today sucked can we never do that again” then asked me to stay with him until he is asleep because he is kinda sad. I was proud of how he handled everything. I don’t think I would have been as mature as he was. 

RIP Lilly

Sounds like like he's mature beyond his years! (how old is he?)

Sorry to hear about your cat (I always hate that because I love animals). Was it old?

He is 5.  He has a practicality to him. When our Disney trip in April got canceled he was disappointed but said “but I don’t want to get sick so ok”.  Last year he saw a flood video on the news and said those people needs boats now and then we need to build them new houses but on top of something so that don’t happen again”. Recently he said he can’t really understand racism because he doesn’t understand why anyone would be mean to people because of how they look.  He also constantly asks me difficult questions that are way over his weight. Sometimes I’m not sure how to answer. 

We aren’t totally sure how old Lily was, she was rescued. But around 11/12. Old but not that old. But she had a liver condition her whole life and it finally gave out. 

This morning my 2 year old almost made me cry when she crawled into Lily’s bed by the window like she often did to cuddle her and was saying lily and whimpering.

I don’t know why it won’t let me post pictures anymore but Got my Father’s Day present from Lily (my dog) and My gf...2 barrel aged stout beers, basil Hayden whiskey, a whiskey cigar, meat crafters fennel stick and various Jailbreak brewery stuff. Yeah we’re those kinda people:lol:

@C.A.P.E. will be happy to know the barrel aged stout beers are pretty high gravity at 13%. The dusk till dusk imperial stout is supposedly pretty world class from what I’ve read on beer advocate.
