    Too much flavor? Isn't that like when Emperor Joseph II told Mozart that there were too many notes in The Marriage of Figaro.

    I feel left out because I stopped getting sick. It's been 2.5 years and I've been left out of every cold and flu commiseration in the office, on the street, and with friends during that time. I'm very lonely and need the sniffles to get back into society.

    My dessert of berries and cream or fried apples is actually good for me.

    The hell? Dessert is supposed to send me into a diabetic comma not provide me with healthy vitamins and antioxidants!

    The stuff in the sink catcher looked really appetizing today- bits of white cauliflower and green broccoli, lemon peel and red pomegranade and bits of crisp bacon, whatever washed off the plates....really wanted to eat it instead of putting in trash, but where would we go from there? ....

    God, I've bitched about this before.... but the clothes. Another lawn and leaf bag full that don't fit. Now buying new winter work clothes and my two recent jean purchases are quickly becoming too big. We have a "full body" work photo and NONE of my work skirts fit. All but one actually fell off me. And all of my old sweaters have a bizarre stretch in the stomach (I guess where my old stomach stretched them out). I had to go buy more clothes this weekend.... going broke.

    Having to buy new clothes constantly is definitely frustrating. But it's also kinda confusing and weird (at least for me). I bought some mens sweaters at the thrift store on thursday. They are Mediums and they fit perfectly. The one is even a little loose. It is REALLY weird for me to consider that I could be wearing a small soon, and I'm having trouble adjusting to this... I keep telling myself they must be really stretched out. But no, I think I just wear this size now.. Ugh, that is so messed up!

    I get grilled all the time now, "Are you still losing weight? What is your waist measurement? How many inches have you lost?" And it's serious- like full on interrogation!
    Truth is, I haven't lost a pound in two months or more, but my composition is still changing I guess!

    Kakes-
    That is my current issue- Crossfit is changing my body- my shoulders are getting broader, waist keeps shrinking.

    Gravyboat - That's awesome and I do the same thing- grab the 16's, the XXL's. End up buying the 12's and mediums. I think I'll be in a 10 soon as the 12 skirt I bought gapped at the waist, fit over hips and thighs.

We have our own farm raised (pasture) beef and pork but I could never figure out a good way to cook beef ribs, I'm gonna try your recipe
