Don’t Share Everything You Know

Tilapia

Why might I suggest that we shouldn’t share everything we know? Mostly that comment is related to keeping to yourself things or at least certain things relating to specific foods that don’t hurt folks.

 

Someone told me that a specific product similar to pudding, but not pudding is thickened with tilapia. For those of you that don’t know, tilapia is a fish. I like tilapia, but only when I’ve chosen to cook fish for supper.

 

Even though the food item I’m referring to doesn’t have the taste of having tilapia in it, now that I know this little tid-bit, I cannot eat it anymore. I enjoyed it quite a bit in the past.

 

I understand that those with a German background in particular use tilapia in this manner. If it’s that common of a thickening agent in those countries, then they are probably not bothered by this knowledge at all.

 

For me, though, I wish the person never shared this information with me, for the item I’m referring to is often sold in my store as a buy one get one free sale. I think it might take a long time for me to work past my distaste for eating this product even though I can not literally taste it in the food in question.k

 

Another thing that happened before this, is that one day at home I was eating Greek yogurt, which I happen to enjoy and my husband was telling me something that was rather disgusting. Don’t ask me to tell you what he said because I really can’t remember what it had to do with, but right now I cannot eat Greek yogurt anymore.

 

Hopefully, this will not last and I will be able to enjoy it once again.

 

The hardest thing is that I do like to share just about everything I know, hence the title of this blog. I will just have to sift through the information from now on and make sure I don’t share anything that might cause another person to not be able to eat something that is actually good for them.

Checking in With My Readership

I just want to let everyone know that I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth as it looks like, so I thought I’d check in with you, my readers.

I’ve been trying to finish proofing my husband’s book. We have someone we work with that knows how to get books ready for both e-book publishing and regular publishing and won’t charge us anything up front, which helps our pocket-book immensely.

I have only five more chapters to go through. Currently I’m checking out what appeared to be discrepancies during my first reading of the ms. Other areas where I thought there were discrepancies, I found that their weren’t, but I’m making sure everything is covered, since we’re hoping that the next book will be picked up ┬áby a regular publisher.

I’ve been busy as usual running our cleaning business and working with our employees along with working in the grocery story I’ve be at for fifteen years. We’ve been short-handed there and I’ve had to pull several weeks of almost forty hours. The pay is nice, but it’s hard on the body.
