    • I'm not sure what a chocolate pot is, but if chocolate gave a churned gut, take it as a sign and move on as soon as you feel better. My problem with chocolate is I can't eat just one square. If it comes in a bar, then the bar is mine. Good thing I have no bars in house now.

      • This is a chocolate pot:

        Mexican Chocolate Pots de Crème (Dairy-Free!) | Award-Winning Paleo Recipes | Nom Nom Paleo

        They are fantastic.

        Went to work despite not feeling well at all. Tummy very upset. And then, wouldn't you know we got a bad baby and I had to work under the heat lamps for 3 hours! I really thought I was going to hurl and had to excuse myself and go to the bathroom for awhile. Don't worry, there were plenty of extra people to care for the baby. Would have been so embarrasing to puke in the hallway, or worse yet pass out! I've eaten some rice crackers and feel a little better.

            • Thank you Candy, you made me smile!

              Felt nauseated and headache-y all night, it was not pleasant! And a very challenging night at work, wouldn't you know it. Was so tired! Those of you who have done this sort of thing know that feeling sick makes you even more tired. Anyway, it is over, I feel better and got a bit of rest - only slept 3 hours or so but that is okay, I am off tonight. And I will be taking it easy! And yes, I have learned my lesson, chocolate pots and red wine on an empty stomach, for lunch no less, is a really bad idea. One good effect is that I am cured of wanting chocolate or alcohol for a while at least!

              I have, however, eaten heartily today. Besides being wicked tired I was ravenously hungry. I made a scrambled egg, heated up some Mexican pot roast (no, not tired of it yet) and sides of sour cream, avocado, and salsa. That really hit the spot, let me tell you! But I woke up hungry and made a sweet potato pancake and ate that with beef (yes, again). Also had a cup of coffee. Unusual for me to make coffee at home, but it seemed like a good idea.

              Very interested in the guest post today about pork production. I had that suspicion about Niman Ranch. Humane issues aside, it is not worth the considerable extra money. Must...get...freezer. Must...buy...local. Here I can visit the farms and drive by them whenever I am wondering what the pigs and cows and chickens are doing.

              Don't know if I reported on this, but pork chop bones make great broth.

              • Oh dear. Into everyone's life some rain must fall. Went swimming and got out after 20 minutes - just tired. I am glad I went, it was very relaxing. While showering I started to get very tired. Stopped at the drugstore to pick up a couple of things and the line was so long to check out I just suddenly felt overwhelmed. I put the things back and left, and bypassed the grocery store also. Came home and stoked up the woodstove and also opened the windows. Sounds counterproductive, but this way I get lovely cool fresh air (it is cool and rainy) but I am still warm enough. Decided to try out my new curly cutter thing. Also decided that a gin & tonic would be a fine digestive. (Tummy is still a little unhappy.) I have some ultra-super delicious tonic with no sugar or HFCS - just a little honey. I cut up a cucumber on the curly cutter - very cool! Put it in a glass with the last of my ice, turned to pick up something and knocked the glass over. CRASH! It hit the soapstone surrounding my woodstove and smashed into a million pieces. No G&T for me tonight. I guess it was not meant to be. If I go out, I have to put out the woodstove and honestly, I am too tired. I should not be driving. Well, just gives me something to look forward to, right?

                I'm really struggling with tiredness - not sleepiness - since I had a week off and returned to work by working five nights in a row. That was too hard, particularly with the no-notice night thrown in.

                      • considering the tough nights at work lately I'm not surprised you're pooped out! Get some much needed rest.

                            • Last night I watched two TV programs, one about Niagara Falls and one about the Zambezi (Victoria Falls). One that is totally shaped by people, turned into a bizarre circus, and the other wild, full of animals and indigenous people. It was a nice diversion. I slept very well and feel ten times better this morning. I was overtired. I'm glad I didn't run out to the grocery last night. For one thing, abstinence from alcohol is advisable when one is teetering on the edge of exhaustion or depression or whatever it is that knocks one upside the head from time to time. I will have to remember this and next time (hopefully very, very far in the future and very, very rarely) I will just pull back and relax and rest. There is a tendency to think that one has to "do something" instead of just letting things run the course.

                              I broke a cutting board a couple of days ago. Well, actually Oboe broke it, but I'm not blaming him. I'm the human adult here. Anyway, it is an integral part of my makeshift kitchen, comprising roughly 1/3 of my available counter space. I do have another cutting board this is not quite as large and is very beaten up. Still, there is a great satisfaction in using things until they can't be used any more, and not having to buy new stuff. I need to get some food-grade mineral oil, something I have been meaning to get for some time, to put on my cutting boards. In the meantime, I sanded the old/new board and rubbed it with sunflower oil. I also need a new electric kettle. This one has been limping along for some time, and it heats up fine, but the spout and bits around the top are hopelessly battered. I have had it for years.

                              I am very, very pleased with my new fancy-schmancy slicing implement. Here it is: Amazon.com: Paderno World Cuisine A4982799 Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable: Kitchen & Dining. Last night I sliced the ill-fated cucumber with it. This morning I am able to look at it with clearer eyes that are not hazed by fatigue, and I see that it is a very versatile implement, much more useful that I originally thought. I can cut spiral-y things or I can cut regular slices as well - I just need to make cuts along the sides of the veg or fruit. It is easy to clean and surprisingly sturdy for what it cost. I am going to buy a big basket of veg, slice them up and make them into a soup with the bone broth I made the other day.
