    Ha ha! I don't have that, but I do have two jars at home, one just for cooking and one for various beauty purposes. I freaking use that stuff for everything now! (If it could work as an adhesive it would replace duct tape as the most versatile fix-it-all in my house)

        • When you're at Outback Steakhouse and the loaf of bread they bring out on a carving board has remained untouched but you've asked the waiter for additional butter twice. What are they doing with the butter?

            On a similar note, Bonefish Grill has very good olive oil with their bread!
            I wish I liked to eat liver.

            • I dreamt last night about a Simpsons episode where Homer and Marge went primal. Marge filled out and Homer lost his belly and grew his hair back. Then he got into a doughnut-eating competition and that was the end of that.

              • You know you're primal when . . . your diet/lifestyle lets you recover from a full blown stroke six months faster than the neurosurgeon's closest estimation, and you regain full use of your body when every expert from your doctor to your therapist warned you you probably never would.

                You really, really know you're primal when . . . you tell your neurosurgeon what you've been eating/doing during recovery and she scolds you and tells you you're only asking for another stroke (despite my A1C dropping 3 points, my BP finally staying under control, and dropping 30 lbs). If I'd had a stick of butter, I'd have eaten it in front of her.

                    Yup, very true!

                      Wow - didn't know you had had a stroke - so sorry to hear it. Congrats on your recovery though, very impressive.

                      • You know you're Primal when you're in your garden digging up an overgrown bed of irises, shaking the dirt off the tubers, and thinking to yourself "I'll bet these would taste good."

                          Bearded Iris? (Iris germanica)...
                          Can be dried and used to make Orris root powder... used as both a fixative and scent in perfumery...
                          And a flavoring in some 'exotic' cuisines and for syrups.
                          Orris root - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

                          Not really for actual eating though.

                          We always just left some dirt in the roots and put bundles into layers of wet newspaper in big grocery store paper bags... then stuck a "Free Iris" sign on them by the road when ours were overgrown.

                          Daylilies make a much nicer edible floral boarder... the flowers (VERY yummy IMO) and tubers on the roots are both edible.

                              • Someone you haven't seen in awhile inquires if you're sick - because your face is looking "a bit drawn." That's not drawn, that's just not as fat as it used to be.

                                Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
