As for this journal...lately it is a ton of my bitching about work. It's a good place to blow off steam and vent. I'll keep tossing in how things are going and the food I eat etc.
Also, my friends here at PBP were a huge reason that when I started jacking around I didn't just say to hell with it and quit. I'd miss my primal peeps.
So far this morning - 2 pork chops and 2 eggs cooked in butter as God intended.
Now, time to get ready for work.
Thanks for stopping by
Oh, and no need to apologize for jumping in. The more the merrier. Jump in all you like.

I cook mine in coconut oil. Congrats on the recent weightloss btw!
Dinner today is shrimp with tomatillos. Very tasty and simple as hell burgled from Simple Recipes
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 medium onion, chopped, about 1 cup
1-2 jalapeno chiles, seeded, minced
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 lb tomatillos, chopped
1/2 cup clam juice OR 1/4 cup water*
1 lb shrimp, cleaned, deveined
1 cup Cotija queso seco cheese (can substitute feta)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
An oven-proof sauté pan or cast iron pan
1 Heat oil in the pan you will use for baking. Add the onions and jalapeños, cook for 5 minutes on medium high until the onions begin to brown. Add the garlic and cook a minute more. Add the tomatillos, reduce heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes, until the tomatillos are cooked through, but still hold their shape. Sprinkle salt over the tomatillos as they are cooking.
2 If using clam juice, add to pan, turn up the heat and reduce by half. If using water, just add the 1/4 cup of water without reducing.
3 Add the cheese and shrimp. Cook in a preheated 425°F oven for 10 minutes.
4 Remove pan from the oven. If using a pan with a handle, such as a cast iron frying pan, I recommend cooling the handle with ice for safety; it's so easy to forget that pan has just come out of the oven, and you grab the hot handle by mistake. Right before serving, mix in the cilantro and sprinkle with lime juice and freshly ground black pepper.
Breakfast was steak...or shoe leather. It was hard to tell. That's the last time I buy the family pack on sale for $2.99 a pound. Egads.
Coffee was awesome. I've been forgoing the cream/half-and-half and using the french press. Man, it is like sex in the mouth or something else as awesome which sounds less ghey.
"Sex on toast" is one Dad used to use (don't ask.) I've always used "Holy mother/father/ spawn of nothing holy good."
"No fate but what we make"- Sarah Connor, Terminator 2
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!"

Sex on toast seems a bit awkward though. Wouldn't be good for a celiac or those with gluten intolerance. Sorry, had to say it.
