Food Fight Friday - The Calm after the StormsteemCreated with Sketch.

in OCD4 months ago

Fighting the heat and fighting red tape has very much played a big part in my life this week, but amazing to see the fighting spirit of a woman who has survived...

  • Breast Cancer
  • A benign brain tumour called an Acoustic Neuroma, same as my Mom Lily as I told you on that Blue Monday.
    To cut a long story short, she had surgery to remove it, unsuccessful, followed by a VP shunt like Mom's which her body rejected; the second shunt was successful but two years later the tumour had grown and her problems came back so she had radiation therapy, successfully!
  • The horrid cancer has now shown up elsewhere and the prognosis is not good at all.

My brave friend tells me this is not going to stop her plans; she's going to enjoy her life as she wants to visit her daughter abroad and see her grandchildren.
What a fight to get a holiday Visa because of her illness despite her daughter being a nursing sister and undertaking to be responsible for her mother's well-being!
It took almost an entire day going from one centre to the next for all kinds of medical tests before they would even consider her Visa application!

We did enjoy the view from the parking area of one of these centres where we could see all the way to the Indian Ocean and Durban Harbour way in the background.

So many have been in a tizz here in Steem world with all the changes, but some of them very exciting in my eyes!
I'll be visiting the various communities wherever I feel appropriate and just love the idea of cross-posting on Steempeak.
Of course the various communities will be setting up their own rules but I love the idea of being able to cross-post a worthy post that is not getting its just rewards, and I quote:

This is NOT a system built with making money as the primary goal... we did this to make communities happier and help people find and interact with content.


90% of the reward will go to the original author
5% to the new community
5% remaining to the user doing the cross-posting.

We had lovely rain overnight and all day today, giving us much relief after some real hot and humid days! Even the garden is looking much refreshed.
So a big hello to our Food Fight Friday bosses @jlsplatts, @dandays and @idig, on this lovely cool summer's night in Durban, and to all the contestants.

The food I am sharing is a simple Tuna Quiche thrown together with whatever I could find in the kitchen as Mom will only eat fish, beans and pulses or vegetables these days; my cottage pie did not appeal to her!
So I rummaged into the nether-depths of the refrigerator and pantry and found:

  • A handful of Mushrooms
  • 2 sprigs Spring Onions
  • Parsley from my garden
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Feta Cheese
  • A can of Tuna
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Self Raising Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • Herbs seasoning

Super easy to make - spray a tart pan and layer the filling ingredients.


Beat together the Eggs, Flour & Milk plus seasoning and pour over filling.

Bake at 160°C fan oven for approx 30 min.

A delicious filling meal that will please most of our Food Fight Friday crew - served with Potato wedges and baked Hokkaido Squash this was very good indeed!

I am so over all the red tape in this country! And as far as Steemit is concerned, I am still in Ostrich mode.

Hope all works out for your friend.

I think you're not the only one!
My friend's doctors all say she's fine to travel but now it's up to these people, each one had to be paid a hefty fee, cost her nearly R8000 just for that! She stands to lose it all if they refuse her, has to wait a week or two for the outcome! I really hope it's positive, she still is so cheerful, positive and very brave, a very special lady!

Hope it all works out!

Hi @Lizelle!💕

Now that's a yummy Lenten casserole and I have almost all the ingredients already onhand to prepare except for the feta cheeese which I can substitute cheddar or omit.🥘

Prayers to your warrior friend and strength to her family & friends as she continues to battle the big C 🙏🙌🙏

You certainly don't need the feta, can really use any filling as long as there's some cheese, it's very versatile. I've made it just with veggies as well (corn, peppers, mixed veg, leeks etc etc). Diced bacon or smoked chicken can replace the tuna as well.
Thanks for your sincere well wishes for my dear friend:)

Thank you for the suggestions, Lizelle. This is a very versatile recipe! I'm a fan of using neufchatel cheese but it sometimes does funny things.
