  • The carnitas are spectacular. I think I have mentioned this before, but I use Mark's recipe with a couple of changes. I use chicken broth instead of water, I add a pinch of cinnamon instead of a stick (be very careful with cinnamon), and I add smoked paprika and red chili flakes. I don't measure any of the spices, just use however much I think I need. This is the best batch by far, possibly because of the bone. This is a good recipe to use bone-in meat because it is cooked until it all falls apart and is easy to remove the bone. (Note to self: pork roast with bone from now on.) I cooked it for three hours last night, but it wasn't done and I was tired. So I just took it out of the oven and put it in the refrigerator, and this morning I put it back in for two hours. It is perfect and there is a LOT of pork. I am very happy!

    Went to my book and meditation group for the first time a long time. It was really good, I wish I could go more often.

    Haven't heard from New Man this morning, hope all is well there.

                • You definitely need to make the carnitas. They are next to heaven.

                    • Curry meat balls are fantastic too. I'm going to make some curry beef jerky with ground beef. (Note to self...)

                      Well, thanks to naiadknight's pecan pie recipe, I made myself the dessert of the week. Sliced up a banana and cooked it in butter and a splash of coconut milk. Added honey and a dash of salt. Put it in a dish and sprinkled cashews on top. And this was my second banana today. I also had an apple. So I've had enough carbs for a whole week. Other than that, it's been carnitas.

                          • Despite having a very large amount of luscious pork all ready to eat, I can't stop eating fruits and veg. I had a huge amount of roasted cauliflower. Then some baba ganoush with bell peppers. A few blackberries. The sad, bad thing (or really happy thing) is that I have eaten more vegetables in one day than most people eat in a week. Or maybe a month. Or maybe ever. And that includes most 'vegetarians' I know, who seem to live on McDonalds french fries and cheese pizza. Cuz they're saving the planet by being vegetarians, dontcha know. Ai'ght, I'm being snarky.

                            Choir tonight was grueling, worked two hours with no break. One of the other singers said this is the hardest music she has worked on in her life - and she is really good. The director heard us talking, and agreed. Doesn't get any harder than the Brahms Requiem in German. I really wouldn't have minded if we were doing something a little bit easier. But it is very beautiful. I haven't warmed up to the German yet. My vocal abilities don't really extend to German.

                            I'm thinking of doing a horrible thing. Asking for fuel assistance money. I mean, I'm driving a new car. But it is so hard to pay $200 for fuel every two weeks! I don't make more money in the winter! The car isn't exactly a luxury; I don't think too many people would argue with my getting a new car every 15 years. And I have to get to work. That part is not a luxury at all. But I can get 100 gallons of fuel or something like that just by asking. This paycheck is extremely skinny after paying for heat. I'm really torn about it. It seems stupid not to do it, but I feel weird asking for it.

                            I may have been too hasty about my 'romance.' After a flurry of texting and calls after going out on Saturday, today was pretty silent. I called him once and he was really receptive to talking, but nothing since. I know how these things go - it can be scary on both sides. Of course I have no idea what he is thinking or feeling, but meeting someone you want to get to know better and maybe even enter into a stable relationship with is damned frightening. I'll just have to see what happens. He mentioned again today that we planned to get together on Friday and to think of something fun to do. Dating is hard.

                            • By all means, ask for fuel.

                              • I was thinking of snowshoeing, he doesn't have snowshoes but I can probably borrow some. But it appears that our snowstorm is turning into a rainstorm, so that might not be possible. I, of course, am a strong paleowoman and can take whatever comes, good or bad. I can't expect a grain-eater to be so tough.

                                Got woken up this morning when a Formula 1 racetrack mysteriously materialized around my bed and the carnivores chased a very noisy crinkle toy around it. They are in fine form. It is getting light so much earlier - I got up thinking it was much later. It was only 6:30 AM. I spent quite a bit of time in prayer and meditation and then read for an hour or so. This is a habit I have to reinstate. I used to do this regularly but since I moved last summer I have let other things creep in and push out the good.

                                Haven't eaten yet today, not hungry.
