    Hope I didn't step on toes! Not my intentions Lex- to be honest I didn't realize that you had a twinkie day. I have such a hard time keeping up with journals because of the number I follow. I just thought that the Twinkie Prof was brought up out of random conversation. Sorry hun.

    • So I spent 2 hours doing something today that most people learned as a child... I started learning how to ride a bike- yes a 2 wheeled pedal bike... It was an interesting experience. Now I just gotta figure out gears. Oh those gears...

      Breakfast- IF

      Lunch- Coconut milkshake with coconut milk, 1 frozen banana, 4 gigantic strawberries, 2 heaping TBSP of cocoa

      Dinner- Lamb, Big ass salad, 2 squares of lindt 90

      Supplements- 2tbsp mct oil, 3000mg salmon oil, 6000ui D3

      Exercise- 2 hours of learning how to ride (but not fully succeeding), 25 min barefoot walk with a buddy

      So I'm not sure why but I bought chicken's feet today at the market... I'm assuming i can make them like chicken wings? Either way it was an odd purchase... I'll see how they go.

      • I love chicken feet. Are you doing them with vinegar -- marinated -- or fried / baked?

        They are super and so fun and messy to eat:-)

        I was actually going to be having them tomorrow with Chinese broccoli, but we chose a different place, and I'll be having turnip cake and tea eggs -- and the place might also be a source of no-crud sausage. Can't wait to find out.

        • The only thing I have ever done with chicken feet is add them to my stock pot. Let me know how they go, okay?

            • Hi All! Ended up doing them with vinegar, onion and tomato in a slow cooker over night then finished with a bit of bbq sauce, salt, pepper and threw them in the oven to crispify. Delicious... I was surprised! Kinda creeped out but definitely warmed up to it!

              Breakfast- Small piece of smoked sockeye salmon

              Lunch- 8 chicken feet, 20 cherries



              Dinner- Smorgusboard of awesome/awefulness at church. Stuck mainly to fruits, veggies and cheese but was coaxed into trying one of my buddies canolies... he insisted and I told him I couldn't... eventually I gave in. Good- but not worth it. Oh well!

                • Yeast-free sourdough??? Isn't that an oxymoron?

                  • A true sourdough snob would never eat sourdough made with yeast! The best and truest sourdough is made from a sourdough starter -- just flour and water! It's not easy to do. The best starters have been around for 75 to 100 years or more. The best way to get your starter going is to get a bit from someone else. At our closest New Season's (rather like Whole Foods, but people run rather than corporation run), the baker has a starter that is 83 years old. The secret is to take care of it properly.

                    There is usually one or sometimes two REAL sourdough breads at Whole Foods and one at Trader Joe's. They go fast as we snobs grab them up. They freeze very well. You'll never go back:-)

                    • No, it's not that hard, just takes patience! I made my own starter using rye and water (equal parts). You have to feed it twice a day for about a week. The first 2 days i fed it with rye, after that with spelt. I now have a spelt starter at 100% hydratation (equal parts water and spelt meal). From this starter I make the 'levain' for my bread, adding again equal parts of water and spelt meal the evening before baking. Then with the levain I make the dough (adding meal, water and sea salt). After about 3 hours of rising, stretching and folding every half hour, i take off a part of the dough and put it in the refrigerator: this is now my starter for my next bread. I can leave it in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. I usually bake enough bread for 1 week for DH and sons (they don't eat that much bread anymore). When it's time to bake again, I just bring the starter (piece of last week's dough) to room temperature and feed it to become the 'levain' again. Easy peasy!

                      • Yes, but that's the hard part:-) Remembering to take care of it:-) I love it though. Once made a starter with potato -- which was great -- again, until I forgot it in the refrigerator!

                          • I got pig skins at our huge Asian market. Planning to try fixing them tomorrow. I'll let you know what happens!!!

                            • Okay, you mean commercial yeast. Sourdough has yeast in it, but it is wild, and considerably better for you. Translator Son is a sourdough fanatic, even has a website - in French though. When I test my tolerance to wheat I will probably do it with his bread. If that provokes a bad reaction, I will know I have to stay miles away from wheat in any form.

                              Ecks, mixing cherries and cherry tomatoes? Now that's creative.
