I needed something to go with my cup of tea over the weekend and I had apples and dates to use up in the refridgerator. I searched for a recipe and the one I found on a “reputable” food site had the worst recipe I had ever encountered. Most of the afternoon was spent correctingContinue reading “Date & Apple Slice”
I have been asked about an “icecream” for dysphagia. I found (via trial and error) that I could not tolerate cheaper icecream. It made me cough and aspirate quite badly.

All that was left on my local supermarket shelf by way of pulses was a lonely single packet of green lentils.
