    Oh judg, I made a chicken soup last week that was to die for. Just boiled a salt/pepper seasoned chicken in chicken broth for about an hour and a half, shredded chicken and cut off the cooked breasts for later.. Dumped the rest of the chicken back in the broth, cut up a head of cabbage, a few carrots, lots of onion, 2tbs of garlic, more salt, pepper, a dash of celery salt and a bit of heavy cream at the end. It was an AWESOME soup. Almost like chicken and dumplings without the dumplings. I find that using the cabbage makes the soup much heartier, and I used a LOT of it. Didn't add too much of a taste. Cabbage seems to soak up taste so well.

    Ecks, I just realized that I check your journal once or twice a day. Every single time I do, I have to search for it. Duh, now I am subscribed I hope you are doing well!!

    Yum, does sound good. I love soups, especially in the winter. Hubby, not so much. But he loved that one.

    :P I leave my journal for less than a day and you ladies are getting boozed and souped up! Hahaha awesome!

    Yesterday was a very physically demanding day at work. Today too. I'm liking it though! Kind of being stretched in every direction but it makes up for the fact that I've been uuber lazy lately at least I hope it does

    Food journal yesterday

    Breakfast- Piece of steak, coconut milkshake with 1 whole banana instead of half

    Lunch- Steak, 2 cups veggies

    Snack 1 piece of lindt 90, 1 piece of G&B Chocolate mint, some pork rinds

    Dinner- 4 Slices of bacon, 1 lamb sirloin, thick piece of frided eggplant, 7 thick asparagus stalks.


    Start times for work this week has been *off* Monday 7:15am, Tuesday 9:15am, Today 6:45am. I had a huge meeting that I was running this morning (400 or so on the phone bridge) and I made the decision this morn. More sleep or food? I chose more sleep. So today's been an IF day so far. Doing sushi tonight though! Mmm... Sushi... People at work didn't get how I could go the whole day without food. I'm honestly not hungry yet. I find if I tell myself in the morning when I wake up that I'm not going to eat I'm fine but If I wake up and intend on eating and I don't eat I get noticibly hungry.

    Does that famous butcher of yours also supply healthy pork rinds? I'm trying to imagine baked pork rinds with Himalyan sea salt and coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. If anyone could do it, you could.

    Sounds like the whole mind over matter deal. Hmm, maybe I should try that with sweets?

    @Pam- As far as pork rinds go I'm fine buying fritos brand from the chip aisle. Ingreidnets are pork rinds, lard, salt. I'd call that as close to a whole food as "processed" foods go. I like them as a snack or as a breading for chicken/veal/shrimp.

    @Alesse- I don't even think it's a mind over matter thing per say. I think it's moreso my body thinking "I'm not getting food for a while, better do something about that!" Seems very self sustaining.

    Okay, now I know. I seriously didn't know what pork rinds were...

    No, I was not a junk food junkie in my former life. Just nachos.
