Hello all, and good wishes.
Long standing members (please do sit down) may remember that a few years ago I "came out" as suffering from Philpotts Syndrome.
It was heartening to hear from so many fellow sufferers, but sad that as yet there seems to be no cure. We are all still destined to stand in our kitchens, looking at a variety of dishes or plastic containers, and a quantity of food with absolutely no idea of which one to use.
Sadly, I have had to acknowledge that I now suffer from "Isthatenoughitis".
It has been coming on for some time, but I became acutely aware of it in the run up to Christmas, when I found myself perusing the frozen turkeys, although of course it can come on in any food department, or indeed, even your own kitchen.
It was yesterday when I finally accepted that I had a problem. 😟
A lamb hotpot was planned for Sunday. No problem with selecting the quantity of carrots, onions or potatoes. (Any excess can be used for other meals). But it was when I was at the meat counter that the syndrome kicked in.
One of the prepared packs of shoulder fillet should have been enough, but would it? What if Mr P finished his meal less than satisfied? What if I did?
So, of course I added another pack to my trolley
I'm now prepping the hotpot, and of course there's enough meat for at least 4 people.
I do the same thing when making lentil and bacon soup. Weigh the lentils, think "that doesn't look enough" so bung in a bit more, then because it's too thick, add another can of tomatoes and more stock and end up with enough damn soup to feed a harvest supper!
Are there any other sufferers out there? Please tell me I'm not the only one!
