  • yeah, i think that's a good description.

    i found that i felt relatively heavy on pork. bacon is about once a week or less (usually two pieces of shoulder bacon is good enough for me), but I do eat sausages. We are lucky in that we can get venison and ostrich sausages (completely free of grains, additives, and pork) -- so we have those about 1x week right now (pretty pricey, but it's nice to have as a quick meal for us). I even found a pork-free chorizo. And, there are wild boar options for us. I found a company that makes wild boar bacon, so we are looking into that as an alternative bacon source.

    We are also looking at smoked fish instead of bacon as an alternative -- as there are several local companies that smoke several kinds of local fish. It's expensive, but I think the price is comparable to the bacon. Eating it about once a week, it should be really good.

    I mean, how awesome would local, smoked fish be with eggs benedict? I think yummy.

    • OK, I want to know who went and rated my journal as only a one star. I bet it was kenn because I called him a petty little twerp earlier today. Up until now, with this relatively new journal thread, nobody has bothered to rate it one way or the other. But today, somebody went out of their way to say it was horrible(?) So don't read it if you don't like it.

        Pork's another matter. Bacon and sausage I eat about once a week.

        But yeah when I crave meat, it's usually red or seafood.
        I thought of the old, "Wow, I could have had a V8!" ads only , "Wow, I could have had a steak!"

        I do like good sausage and I've been making my own when Sprouts has ground boar meat.

          Ostrich is awesome. I've never tried making sausage out of it but it makes great burgers. The eggs are wonderful too. So rich.
          My local sprouts carries ground meat from all kinds of interesting animals like bison, elk, antelope, deer, etc. so the red meat part of my diet doesn't just mean beef. I also eat a lot of lamb. Lamb liver is the best.

          Smoked fish works great with eggs Benny. There is a New york deli here that serves this.

            Well, I just rated it a "5" to counter the "1".

              Me too. I lurk here a lot these days, figured I should pay my dues.
              I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

              • yeah, it's popular to do the "shark-bennie" which is what they call it on many menus here when they put the smoked fish in (usually salmon). but to get other fish like hoki and other local kinds smoked with manuka is a pretty sweet option. I suppose we should just start trying different brands and see what we like.

                food!

                yoga classes today were fun. we have new sequences to introduce. I'm psyched.

                    Thank you Goldie. Some people shouldn't be allowed to sit at the grown-ups' table.

                    Hi Sigi. Well, It's up to a four star now. Thanks everybody.

                    Or maybe it was Grizz who gave the bad rating. Oh, goodness. It must be contagious. I have been hanging around the iodine thread too much and now I'm starting to get paranoid. Yikes! *runs to polish tinfoil hat*

                      It's not often the ladies announce "'Lurkers are always welcome."

                      So I'll just keep on lurking...

                      Found a local bacon from a family farm, w/ the highest sustainability rating of 5 compared to Applewood's 1. Ate some of this yummy bacon w/ our mix seafood dinner last night.

                        Aw, Brett, you know you can lurk near me any time you want. How goes your primalizing your Mom project?

                        • Noo... no "lurking"...

                            Gee thanks. Better w/ maternal unit: She's stopped telling her friends I have her on a "No Carb Diet". She's doing better w/ the lack of bread, pasta & rice. I think on Friday, which marks 2 weeks of "seeking ketosis" w/ my mom, we'll add a small portion of rice to our evening meal, Maybe she'll sleep better & my promise to her that she can eat occassional grains if she wants to, will be kept. The biggest hurdle was keeping her from snacking at night, & on nuts & peanut butter. IT'S SORTA LIKE MANAGING A KID! A 75 y.o. kid who can jump in her car & drive off to eat whatever she can find, lol... She's settled in to things, since I'm doing 95% of the shopping, cooking & dishes too.

                              It couldn't have been Kenn. He is not that petty.

                              Maybe it's because you've been contaminating Grizz's journal?

                              • Finally caught up on your journal, envying your wealth of fishes. So expensive here. Anyhow, your story is awesome and so is your journal.
