  • When your husband asks you which butter he's allowed to use (he's not paleo/primal) so he doesn't get yelled at for using yours.

    When you have a *continuous* splatter of grease on your stove.

    When you use the same pan to cook meats for a cpl days in a row before washing b/c you just don't care about the grease/fat anymore.

      • I was just thinking that the other day. There's a term for that - when something occurs in different places at the same time. Dang, I can't remember it; not coincidence; is it cognitive resonance? Anyway it's cool.

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

        • YKYPW you're looking at a recipe site and one of the ads reads, "Fast and Healthy Recipes," but what your brain first registered was, "Fat and Healthy Recipes."

            Yes. I love stumbling to the kitchen in the morning, seeing that the pan I used yesterday morning to cook eggs is still on the stove with a good amount of fat in it, and thinking "great! one less thing to do this morning!"

              Exactly. This morning I woke up to a pan that hubby had cooked some ham in. I threw in a piece of bacon and then some pork chops LOL!

              • Non primal thought: concerned about turning rancid/sick? I never know if I should wash it out first!

                  I do this all the time and I've never gotten sick, but our kitchen is very cool at night.

                        A few things to think about
                        - My grandmother (and all her generation) kept a jar of bacon grease on the stove all the time. I do the same. It takes months for good fat to go bad at room temp, even in the summer in GA.
                        - People used to preserve things in fat, like duck confit & pemmican. Yumyumyumyumyumyum. (My farmer still does!)
                        - You just cooked everything in that base of that pan to an extremely high temperature.
                        - On our first long family trip driving cross-country & hitting national parks, we cooked on a camp stove with cast iron every morning (& eventually, dinner, too). We discovered that if we never washed the pan, it got more and more seasoned. It's hard to do otherwise at home now that we know we don't have to!
                        - We've been doing it at home for four years now. Not dead yet.

                        We rarely wash our iron. My mother would keel over just from knowing that. Even my bacon-grease grandma would have. She was from the Hygiene Generation and washed her dishes in Clorox. !!

                            • You go for an hour long walk outside in 30 degree weather in jeans and a t-shirt and don't even realize you forgot your jacket until you reach your door at the end of it.
                              "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                              • You play fetch/ ball with your dog (fed grain free), the neighbor kids, and their dog, and realize you last longer than all of 'em.
                                Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
