    ok...im getting an idea of what you need to deal with.... now lets see if we can figure out something nice to whip up.

    these are some of the things i served my friend.

    GNC mass gainer NO creatine as the base shake. To that i would add in a few tablespoons of peanut butter and heavy cream.

    Dont laugh.... maple bacon milkshakes. Base vanilla and blend in a few bacon slices and maple syrup.

    Hot custard. Heat heavy cream, add in enough sweetened condensed milk to taste to taste yummy, some butter and vanilla. In a small bowl mix a few egg yolks... and slowly add in the heavy cream.... a bit of nutmeg if you like. He cant have chocolate...but some chocolate would be nice too....

    instant pudding made with heavy cream.... and a scoop of the GNC powder.

    blue cheese dressing.... he loves blue cheese ...and just the dressing was enough for the flavor and feel...and still slide down.

    cream of brie soup

    Bacon and cheddar soup home made


    fast and slick.... campbells bean with bacon soup with extra bacon in the vitimixer.

    eggnog over the holidays by the gallon

    and as many MD milkshakes as i can get him to drink!!!


    He needs 2000 a day.... and i aim for 4000. On a good day i can get that into him.... it makes up for the days he is not even getting 100.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.

    Only I will remain.
