  • Sea, I know where you're coming from. There are some foods that I just want that food - no fancy stuff - because the food itself is just so perfect on it's own. Slurping oysters from a shell is an example. (Though I will often try roasted oysters because just about every seafood restaurant here has its own version and it's fun to see their take.) I can do shrimp just boiled with the heads on. Dipped in melted butter. And I like 'diablo' or 'diavolo' in a spicy marinara sauce. Dang, I'm so walking over to the market tomorrow for some seafood. You've got me lusting for some primal shell peeling food.

    Gwamma, I'm pretty much down to two cooking shows. Iron Chef which is a very campy competition where two chefs are given a main ingredient and access to a fabulous pantry of amazing ingredients to create five dishes each where the main ingredient is the center of the dish. The other is Good Eats which is more instructional. Tells you why and how certain foods should be prepared a given way. It's done very tongue in cheek, even though it's very common sense. IOW neither show takes itself too seriously.

    A nap? Those Tonga boys are tiring our Gwamma out. I never thought I'd see the day. lol

    • oysters are so expensive here that i have never brought them. i know where to find them and i usually just eat them raw. i think too coz i dont overly spice food. i got out of practise as exhubby used to yell alot about it and the kids dont like it, i tend to eat food plain. so raw oysters, straight pan fried steak, roasts, even funky sea food like kina and the like, i dont do too much to. things like kina and paua have a very subtle mild flavour so you do not need to over complicate it or you could pretty much have screamed spicy mushrooms instead of paua. or who knows what curried instead of kina.

      what exactly are those tongan boys doing to tire you out we have to ask G?

      • Good morning all - well more and more of our pacific island boyz here today.
        DH is up country all day - so you do the math !!!!!!!!!!!

        I think that it might end up being a computer day of huge proportions. My kitchen is covered in plastic from one end t'other - so won't be much cooked in there today.

        I might have to survive on air and sunshine .............

                • the first bit would be easy for you i am sure G. and then you just need to stroll to the letterbox after breakfast and before dinner and you are there. i saw a study once where they compared doing 3 lots of 20 mins a day to 60mins and found it was the same. once you get into it. you feel so much better and so much worse if you bunk off that you just keep going.

                  i got given some fresh tuna today. i am thinking i may smoke it. i think i've only had fresh tuna once and was slutted it tasted nothing like the canned stuff. as in totally overpoweringly fishy. anyone got opinions or recipes i can try?

                        • well hello all - Just a wee bit melancholic today - 2 years since the big quake, so really its been a day for reflection..........
                          ................but reflection over, littliest daughter turned 18 yesterday in America, and middle DD has broken up with her boyfriend. I actually need me some positives thank you !!!!!!!!
                          ......... made the boyz a very CW bacon and egg pie today. They loved it and all was eaten - then this afternoon I found out that they are all Seventh day adventists !!!!!!!!! Well I have known a few 7th days in my time -and NONE, absolutely NONE of them eat pork !!!!!!!!!!!! So MY BAD !!!!!!

                          confession time - my profuse apologies boyz that I didn't make it clear that bacon and egg pie has actually bacon in it - which means pork - or poaka in Maori

                          tsk tsk Gwamma !!!!!!

                          • Aah, hugs to you. Sorry such a day of sadness. Although in my case if middle dd broke up with boyfriend I would be happy.

                            Anyway, thinking of you. Have yourself a good primal meal tonight and look forward to a new day tomorrow.

                              I should not get attached to my daughters boyfriends, however I do, and invariably I end up in tears !!!!! nevermind if its not to be - its not to be.
                              Good luck with your middle DD BF !!!!!!!

                              • steak and egg pie for the boys next time, then.

                                we are having steak and broccoli tonight, and I started juicing the stalks into our morning juice and it's *good*. I'm loving our juice these days.

                                Had a great day -- business is still growing and we have some new marketing ideas that we implemented just today (nice family walk around the city with our flyer drops!). So, exercise, family time, and business development all at once!

                                Also, saw the new water-resistant/warmer vibrams and might end up with a pair of those for winter. I always struggle with my winter footwear!

                                Also, my posture is way better. Amazing! I'm loving my postural work combined with pilates to help me isolate certain areas. It's awesome. I'm *so* sore, and my waist is back to 26 inches (it got up to 27 over the holidays!).
