  • I forgot my brilliant observations on grilling versus barbecuing. Anything done on gas is just grilling. Not that that is a bad thing as it it can be very tasty. Barbecuing is an art as is smoking. I love taking a tough piece of meat, rubbing it lovingly, placing it in a warm moist place and having it become something that brings tears to my eyes and makes my mouth water.

      If you are incapacitated, you need good drugs. I had a hysterectomy (kept the ovaries) on Monday, came home with very good pain meds and haven't been too bored yet. Of course, my sister went home yesterday and my husband sucks at enertaining me so I may start getting restless. I hope your toes get better soon. If you were closer, I would share my lovely, lovely little pills! Or kiss your owies better!

      What GF mix do you use? I started using Wholesome Chow all purpose mix for pancakes for my man and he thinks they taste just like regular ones. Especially fried in bacon fat. We don't have them often but it is my mom's recipe and they remind me of her. Biscuits and gravy are my next big adventure, once my superglued incisions are healed.
      Ouch on the hysterctomy. I had one about 17 years ago (I got to keep my ovaries and my cervix ). But I walked like John Wayne for a couple of days. Hope you heal quickly.

      I use Glutino Gluten Free Pantry All-Purpose Flour. I can't really say if it works well because almost every time I want something that carby, I'm pretty hammered, so if it doesn't come out well, was it the flour or was it moi? But I'm doing better (much) on the drinking, so hopefully the biscuits I tried that came out like large poker chips were something I did wrong.

      Is it me or is it hot in here?

Wonder if they’re going to check to see if you actually bought some. Someone with a gift for writing promos could just make shit up. “I was a 300 pound couch potato, but just six months after starting on Primal Magic Dust, I’m 110 pounds and men crawl through glass to kiss my ass.” Meh.

          Saving money. I love it. And even though the degenerates in Congress have screwed us on the saving of sales tax for mail order, I still love that online offers me a way to bypass local prices on a regular basis. Getting salmon shipped from Seattle and saving between 15 and 30% over local prices and I’m circling the happy face on my calendar. Whole bean coffee in New Orleans – about $10.50/lb. Almost everywhere. Talk about your price fixing. Finding a Kirkland Signature dark roast coffee for $6.00/lb? Pure gold.

          Hmm… two bitches (sort of) in a row. Hail Bitchapalooza!

          I’m having a very unPrimal day today. I’m eating bread. I shall stand on the mountaintop and let the community pummel me with croutons. The only upside is that it isn’t Subway, so I’m not compounding the bread with low-rent cold cuts. Grass fed ground beef and organic tomatoes will be sandwiched in that bread. Some has already been slathered with pastured butter. Tomorrow I shall fart.

          Non sequitur. I couldn’t take another day without a walk. But my toes still hurt. I took a 15 minute walk, came home, put my feet up for about five minutes and drank some cold water. Went back out and took a 25 minute walk. It’s not a ton of time, but it’s something. Toward the end of the second walk, I sometimes sounded like I was walking barefoot on the sun – ouch ouch ooch ouch – but I got it done.

          Then I came home, took one aspirin and one ibuprofen, and put frozen spinach on my toes. I know peas are recommended, but I don’t really eat peas much. And I threw away the year old bag of frozen limas a couple of months ago.

          I think my landlord is having a midlife crisis. Last time I saw him, he was bragging about losing weight and his hair looked darker. Men are such vain little creatures. Compounding the humor on that is, of course, the fact that women really look so past looks to find a mate. Man may think with penis, but women think with brains. That was sexist, and I apologize. I should say: women over 35 think with brains. I have no idea what either sex under 35 is thinking with, but I suspect that genitalia get a big vote.

          I may miss some things of my youth. Perky breasts. The ability to lose five pounds a week. Boundless energy. But the one thing I don’t miss is young men. I’d rather do the biblical thing with a 65 year old than with three 20 year olds. LOL. I wish I’d known that at 25.

          Second phase of BP trial resumes in New Orleans



          Twitter to make IPO filing public this week: Quartz - chicagotribune.com – Another tech IPO. :::yawn::: Not my thing, but maybe there’s money to be made.

          Panty sniffers. Fuckwads. There is no appropriate adjective that conveys how I feel about the NSA. If I saw a homeless drunk having illegal sex with a squirrel, I’d have more respect for him than I do for the average NSA worker.

          http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/29/ar...qAoQ7/78h/ULfg – In a country where NFL tickets can bring upwards of $2700, opera goes broke. ‘Nuf said.

          Intravaginal Ring Prevents Infection with AIDS-Like Disease in Monkeys – Which is all very well and good for monkeys, but apparently, humans are too foolish to think protecting themselves from disease is important.

          Saturday’s food: Coffee w/coconut oil and MCT oil. A couple of mugs of bone broth – one also had powdered goat milk in it. A couple of grass fed hot dogs with mustard.
          Yeah, MDA does seem to be becoming a bit "commercial"...

          Degenerates in Congress.... was all you had to say.... the rest was fluff!

          I think you are right... folks under 35 thing with their groins..... and most men after 35 never get out of the habit.... which is OK, provided you realize that going in to personal negotiations....

          Doing the biblical thing? Like burning a ram on the alter? (I'm OK with that... since I drive a Ford...).... or parting the Red sea?? Seeking manna from heaven? Searching for the Promised Land (the land of milk and honey)?

          Yup NSA snoopers are douches.... and not the flowery scented version.... straight up lemon and vinegar...

          Opera is over rated... f'kers can't even speak 'Merican!

          The NFL is WAAAAAY over rated...... So, you can run fast and catch a ball... big f'n deal.... Wanna impress me? build your own friggin house and grow your own food!

          Why do humans need to protect themselves... we now have the goodness of Obamacare to heal our hurts and assuage our fears!! <cue angelic choir singing in the background, clouds part and bright beams of sunshine rain down on mankind>

            LOL - you're on top of it today! Must've been a good weekend - maybe burning more rams than usual on the old marital alter?

            And I'm in total agreement on the bolded stuff. The ex before the ex can build a home from the ground up. I've been encouraging him to start growing/raising rabbits for food. I may have few survival skills, but he'd take me in before he'd let me live in a refrigerator box on the corner.

LOL I think all my cosmic and physical energy is going into healing my toes. I’ve noticed this before with injuries. After the initial acute pain goes away, there’s a general lethargy that takes over as if the body is saying, “Sleep, it’s time to heal.” And an urge to eat many eggs.

                The beef tongue is ready to go in the pressure cooker, so in a couple of hours, I’ll put it in, and an hour after that, I’ll eat tongue.

                My first Good Eggs order will be delivered tomorrow. A couple kinds of squashes, some herbs, jalapenos, eggs and dairy, various salsas and relishes, artichoke pesto, and GF Queso Cakes. I’m doing a happy dance.


                I try not to broach too many controversial subjects here. It’s a fun place. A place to bitch. A place to talk about food.

                I believe in the death penalty. I don’t like the way it’s used. It shouldn’t be that just because someone gets convicted in TX or FL, they have a good chance of getting killed by the state. It shouldn’t be that if a person of color kills a white person, they have a better chance of getting killed by the state. Mentally retarded people shouldn’t be killed by the state. I think that if you grant yourself the power to kill people legally, you should take that as a responsibility that is so important, that is shouldn’t be influenced by politics, racism, etc.

                Charlie Manson was/is one sick m*****f****r. He was sentenced to death, but CA’s death penalty was found to be unconstitutional. So, due to timing, his sentence was commuted to life. He comes up for parole on a regular basis. Because of this, the families of his victims may never rest. But Charlie Manson is exactly the kind of person that I believe should be killed by the state.

                The serial killer. The multiple killer. The spree killer. The killer for hire. These are people for whom humanity has taken a vacation. Don’t get me wrong – if you kill someone during a robbery, I believe you should never have freedom. I’m okay with life without possibility of parole. But the killer of someone shouldn’t be judged by his victim. S/he should be judged on the act.

                Let’s face it. If we believe in war, we believe in killing. I’m okay with that. I feel sad that soldiers kill soldiers while the perpetrators of war live out their lives in ivory towers, but I get it. A better system might be to have leader fight leader. One death, situation resolved, but I know that will never happen, and I don’t much believe in fairy tales. Would many wars have happened if the various heads of state had actually faced death themselves?

                Anyway, I don’t know what took me to this place today, but here I am. There is killing in self-defense. There is killing for war. There are accidental killings. And then there are killings just because the person has lost their humanity and likes to kill or kills for profit (and I can’t think of anyone lower than someone who would take a life for dollars). It makes her/him feel good. And those are the cancers on the ass of humanity. They are the ones we should kill. Let some non-violent possession folks and some prisoners over the age of 70 out of jail, and we have room for some who will spend their lives in prison with no possibility of parole. Tighten up the rules for execution, and states like FL and TX stop being an embarrassment.

                I haven’t even addressed the fact that sometimes, juries just get it wrong. Even if it’s only one out of a hundred times, killing an innocent person is a travesty. We have the right to kill people who break certain laws. We don’t have the moral right to take that lightly.

                Back to our regularly scheduled silliness…

                I made GF brownies last night. Not bad. Sadly, I didn’t have real sugar in the house, so I used stevia. I don’t taste it in my coffee, but I tasted it in these. I’m going to, for the first time in decades buy real sugar next time I do a Vitacost order. As a note, the aftertaste of the stevia wasn’t terrible once the brownies cooled. But who wants to wait for that?

                Despite risk, more infants sharing beds - A downside to co-sleeping. I know that this isn’t popular, but I think that once everything is healed, Mom and Dad should go back to being happy lovers without a baby between them.

                As far as the Death penalty goes, the ARE folks that just don't need to be alive.... Manson is a good example... Yup, agree that the deliberation should be diligent, and ALL evidence should be considered.

                • I agree with the death penalty stuff. I also wish that judges could/would impose punishments that more closely fit the crime. Here they often make graffiti taggers scrub off what they (and others) painted. That sort of thing makes sense.

                  Joanie, I use erythritol instead of sugar. It doesn't have an aftertaste, and does have Mark's "okay". It's not as sweet as sugar, but that works for me. I so seldom eat sweet stuff, it still tastes pretty sweet to me! Are Sugar Alcohols Healthy?

                    Back in the olden days, we used to call siblings born less than a year apart "Irish twins." You almost made it.

                    Goldie, thank you for the link and the info. I'll have to check it out.

                    I like the idea of taggers cleaning up messes; it does make sense.

                              Yes, when it comes to politicians, I'd say the U.S. is still one of the greats for absolute lack of morality and ethics. Go us!

                                Maybe your politicians. Mine is great. I mean, how else can Congress have a 9% approval rating but an 85%+ re-election rate? *rolls eyes* throw all the bums out.
