Re: "I Want to go Paleo..."

I did tell Youngest that he can try an elimination diet to see...

I think this is a key idea for any diet. We are all different, and it's amazing how one person's perfect food is another person's poison. Dairy, grains, legumes, meat, [more]

Re: "I Want to go Paleo..."

We had dinner at a vegetarian household last night. A legume-red pepper stew, latkes (potato pancakes), yogurt and sour cream to put in/on them, and homemade challah with orange peel in it and fennel and sesame seeds on top. Plus two really nice [more]

Re: Inventory

I have.... one bottle of wine. And a bottle in the fridge that is good only for pouring over the beef the next time we make stew.

I've had a few glasses of wine in my life that I absolutely loved, but I still drink wine only once a month, if [more]

The good in the world

It's been a tough week in all kinds of ways for all kinds of people. Sometimes it's worth remembering what a single small kindness can do.

Re: OT: Where'd you go to high school

No one near me has ever heard of my high school, nor my home town. I start with the state I'm from and work from there.

Around here, the conversations that start with "Where did you go to school?" are answered with college and then [more]

Re: Anyone up for a Revival?

I will cautiously raise my hand and vote yes on a revival, though I'm not here much anymore.

Re: To a certain board

I think I'm really glad I don't know what board this was.

ThyPeace, though I can think of a few that I read that are pretty ugly, none had flareups recently.

Re: Dead Board?

Re: Responding to a creepy person's demand

Wow. That is one of the most spectacularly ugly actions I have ever heard of someone bragging about. I sincerely hope that he is extradited to Japan and prosecuted to the fullest extent of whatever their laws are.

Vegetables. Oh, the chopping.

I have mentioned here before the immense amount of vegetable chopping that my new eating methods requires. Today I took part of the day off to pick DD up from "outdoor education" -- which I knew as 6th grade camp back in the day. It was a [more]

Re: lunch!

A couple of ounces of ham, a couple of cups of raw veggies, an apple, and some almonds. Then I got hungry and found myself some chili and another apple. I think I'm going to be full until bedtime at this point!

No really. Y'all finally hit my limit. I'm not angry any more, though it's still upsetting and I'll probably cry later. But don't try to apologize and say you'll fix it, or get someone to fix it. It took me six years, but I think I finally accept [more]

Salary. Dividends get partly reinvested and partly used for items I would not otherwise be willing to do.

And tonight, DH's cedar-planked salmon, garden-grown butternut squash, and whatever other things he comes up with.
