I'm on a diet at the moment. A revolting cup of soup for lunch and a slightly smaller supper. Everybody tells me this isn't supposed to work, but I've lost 7 kilos (around 14 pounds) in 4 weeks. Only 3 to go and I'll reach my target of 75 kilos.

Had a derivation of a hamburger made with sausage. It's awesome.

a whole grain bagel with ricotta cheese and raspberry jam.

Last night we went to a wedding reception for Doug's nephew at the Schwabben Club in Kitchener. There are several places like this in Kitchener that do a good business during Octoberfest.

We had what could be called a substantial German meal. (or the Canadian equivilant thereof). We ate salad and good crusty rolls with butter, schnitzel with gravy, a breaded chicken dish with mushroom gravy, corn and potatoes and cheese cake with a strawberry sauce (no fruit). Real stick to your ribs meal. I would have been happy with good German sausage, sauerkraut and potatoes, but nobody asked me. They had a vegetarian option, but I can't conceive of what that would have been like. I should have ordered it just to find out. We had plenty of meat left over at the table if I wanted to jump ship.

They went all out and had an open bar all night. Consequently I had a few, which is not my habit, so between the enormous meal and alcohol I crashed completely last night as soon as we got home. I still haven't eaten my Wedding cupcake. (an innovation I'm not entirely fond of)

My grandmother made what we called schnitzels, but it's probably nothing like what the traditional German dish is. It was beef cubes in gravy, and it was fantastic.

A schnitzel is made with boneless meat thinned with a mallet (escalope-style preparation), coated in bread crumbs and fried. Then, you can add a gravy of your choice, if you wish. It can be any kind of meat, but if it is called "Wiener Schnitzel", then it has to be veal. Austria and Germany actually passed a law about that.

And wedges of lemon. It seems to be a speciality of the German restaurants around here. And Ontario is a big pork producing province.

It's what Hoosiers would call a pork tenderloin or pork tenderloin sandwich.

Then it wasn't schnitzels she made. They weren't coated in anything, anyway.

I looked it up on a cooking site. Apparently, it's called "Beef Cubes in Gravy".

Don't know why but McDonald's Breakfast always seems to cure my hangover.

Disturbingly true. And the only time I crave Burger King is when I have a cold or feel the flu coming on. That's how I realize that I'm sick, the thoughts of a Whopper entering my mind. I wonder why? It's not nostalgia for a simpler time, that's for sure.

I've heard a doctor say it's all the fat.

Hit 75 kilos and my wife ordered me to stop dieting - I'll stuff myself with fish and chips in England, then.
