GP, what do you read to curb carb cravings? I imagine that the Donner party snacks were pretty lean and definitely no-carb.
You make your choices, and you live with them. In the end, you are those choices.

Note: Green creme eggs=massive raging headache I will not be able to eat the second one. Middle son will happily take care of that one for me. Can't wait until he bites into it and sees that it is green inside.

Since NaNoWriMo continues to run my life, children, we'll keep this cooking lesson short.
Never make Pork Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Peppers with a paper cut.
That is all.*

Yeah, habanero poppers, while very tasty, are not conducive to removing contacts or later pleasurable activities.

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!"
My Primal Battle Tome
Ohhh... pepper stories!
Once, long ago I was making a pot of white beans.
As any good "southern girl" knows, one must season a pot of white beans with several things... including one dried red chili pepper.
Well, as a good industrious "southern girl" I grew my own in the garden, and strung them by hand to dry for storage...
When one was needed you just snipped it away from the string.
Then snipped it into the pot... with kitchen scissors.
This had always been the way.
Does anyone see the problem?
Those scissors caught the edge of a seed, and flipped it up... into my EYE!
Where it stuck. While I screamed.
And jumped up and down flapping my hands.
And told people "Don't you DARE touch me!!!"
At some point I stuck my head in the sink and turned the faucet on aimed right at my eye.
But, I eventually had to pry my own eye open, with my hands shaking, and dig that seed out.
I stopped snipping those dammed peppers with SCISSORS!
Also... Panda... Stop by my Journal and commiserate with me on my lack of joyous carbohydrate options.
Our body is our subconscious mind, and anybody who thinks that their conscious mind is running the show is seriously mistaken. In fact the conscious mind just may be the most narcissistic entity in the universe, it thinks it's running the show. It's not.
