Spaghetti Bolognese.

Tuesday 23rd August 2011

I have recently been to an allergy clinic & amongst other things have been told that I have an allergy to lactose & mushrooms. The dairy came as no big surprise, having suffered from sinusitis for years I had worked that much out and as a result had already ‘cut down’ on my dairy in take. Besides, I could substitute most dairy products with soya by-products.

But the mushroom thing completely blind sided me. The idea of bolognese without mushrooms is just wrong. Bolognese is mushrooms & mushrooms are bolognese.

Zephy has always put up some resistance to mushrooms. Complaining that he doesn’t like them. Well, that’s when he realises they are on his plate & if he remembers that he told me that he doesn’t like them. In short, it is just another way to take back some control in a world where he is constantly told what to do & how to do it.

Fair enough.

So when I told him I couldn’t eat mushrooms for the foreseeable future you would imagine he would say,

“Cool, good riddance to bad rubbish!”


“Oh Dad, I want mushrooms in my spaghetti bolognese.” He moaned.

Of course he did. 😉

So, last night, as we were walking across the lawn towards the house my son, Zephyrus, asked;

“What’s for dinner Dad?”

“Spaghetti bolognese.” I reply.


“Dad, can you put mushrooms in mine please.”

Cheeky sod. 😉

    He is TOTALLY a contrarian!
    I’m sorry to hear of your mushroom-and-milk allergies. 😦 (Though I suppose there are worse things… at least you can still eat chocolate, right?) 😉

    I must say the bolognese sauce was delicious tonight and although I love mushrooms I didn’t notice their absence!

    i always think that vegitarians should move the meat aside on their plate if they dont like it,as i would do with a yorkshire pudding. so. could you make a proper spagbol when we come over and just leave your mushhes on the side of the plate? there speaks a foodisteine!!
