    No, I didn't know that, Coll! I am glad that I do because refrigerator space is very much at a premium here. The eggs are only $2.75 a dozen, hard to beat that. I have been eating lots of them.

    Confession - I went on Match.com and have been exchanging emails with an organic farmer who lives about 20 miles away. He raises organic and natural beef, chicken, eggs, and also has a large hay business. Is it bad to have ulterior motives...thinking grass fed steaks every weekend...

      • Just put a mushroom and butternut squash casserole in the oven. Just squash, onions, mushrooms, sage, thyme, cheese layered like lasagna. I used to make this with soy cheese for a vegan friend. Can you believe I did that? The soy cheese always gave me severe indigestion, along with everything else soy. I remember it was delicious, though, with regular cheese. I hope it is good as while I was making it I remembered why I haven't cooked 'recipes' lately - it is bloody expensive.

        I have kind of a dilemma. When I was at the pool today, some kids came in - a regular group that comes in every Friday afternoon. There are several groups of kids that have pool time. They were in the locker room, running around, and they peeked at me in the shower. This has happened a few times. Now I am not overly modest, but it is upsetting to me to have these girls gawking at me like that. Today it occurred to me that perhaps no one has taught these girls that this behavior is totally inappropriate. And maybe it is time that someone did. In fact, someone needs to. So I asked to talk to the pool director, but she had stepped out. I let it go, but I plan to say something. This makes me distinctly uncomfortable and it is wrong. I don't want the girls to get in trouble, but I honestly think they need to be told this is wrong. What do you think?

          • I agree that carbs are the devil's calling card. That is probally why i think gluten = glutton, imho.

            • They definitely need to be told.
              And farmer, OMG would that be perfect or what???

              • Yeah, hard as it might be the girls should be told. Probably by the director.

                Speaking as a man, if someone were after me solely for my...meat, I would feel like a piece of...

                But I'd get over it ;-)

                  • Huge score at the thrift shop. A pair of Gap jeans, really nice, a bit loose, perfect for around the house, chores, etc. (If I hook up with the farmer there might be a lot of chores in my future.) A pair of cargos that are going to be worn to work. Way cheaper than scrub pants. And the big score - a Talbots twin set, gray with black trim, beautiful Italian wool. I mean it is really, really nice. $5. My friend was working at the checkout, she nearly fell over when she saw it. She made me promise to wear it to church on Sunday, which shouldn't be a problem since it is supposed to be cold and rainy.

                    • OMG the organic farmer is also a freakin' jazz musician! Grew up in freakin' NYC! Got to meet up with this guy.

                        • And the mushroom-squash thing is really, really good! I just ate a double helping.

                          • Great day but a hungry one! Had mushroom/squash thing with some turkey for breakfast. Ran around madly and did some errands, then drove to the next town for a pre-opera talk. Then came the highlight - Verdi's Un Ballo in Maschara (A Masked Ball). I had never heard this gorgeous work before, and the Met's production was dazzling. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed an opera so much. (All right, I probably can as I adore opera.) So now it's five o'clock and I haven't eaten since 8 AM. Powerful hunger! I had brought some nuts and two clementines but that wasn't enough. Obviously need more protein in that mix! Came home and had some fish (cod), more mushroom/squash, and a glass of red. And now enjoying my favorite jazz program!

                            • Well, Siobhan, I can't think of a nicer idea than the organic farmer. Just think of the natural workouts you'd have all built into your daily life. And how cool if you could connect with someone who likes healthy food and grows it.... He sounds really cool! Hopefully there is more to him than the good meat and eggs though! Mmm, jazz musician, that is my hubby too. Sounds good to me!!! Check him out girl

                              • And the girls definitely need to be pulled up short on that kind of behaviour. Disrespectful and not good at all ... and yes it is time they heard that! Pretty uncomfortable scenario though.... sigh! What are their parents teaching them, or not!?
