    Okay, now I'm hungry and I was going to IF today. Note to self: Don't look at food porn while IFing. Craving wild boar with some kind of tangy berry sauce on it. And crispy salmon skin followed by gooey pickled herring...

    Funny, when I was younger I loved old-fashioned clutter-y stuff and now I am totally into the Scandinavian sparse thing.

    After work yesterday, I had dinner x2 and a little desert. Breakfast was equally lush and accompanied by a little strong coffee with half and half and a little sugar, so I have ALL THE ENERGY today.

    FOOD IS GOOD. EAT FOOD, RR.

    Just don't ask me to weigh in today hehe; just in case the number jumped, I didn't. It's a worthy sacrifice, but I still don't wanna know about it. I'll weigh after swimming tomorrow. Workout today went pretty good. I did physical therapy exercises for my shoulder and some core stuff.

    We got two more people on shift; both are brand new and both like my music. The shop has been at a good volumn level lately. ;3 Our [private in command] is gone for training, so somehow, someway, I'm senior in shop. And suddenly it goes from meh, RR kinda sucks, but she's not bad, to fuck, IDK, ask RR! Lol. And I'm rewriting the training book. From scratch. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? Well, there's no guarentee it'll go anywhere, because we just randomly started it on shift one night, BUT GOD I HOPE I DON'T MESS THIS UP.

    FOOD IS GOOD.

    You know what the military does to people that show initiative?..... give them more shit to do... because if that have time to do extra shit, they aren't busy enough! well, that was my experience, anyway, and I can't imagine that the Army is very unlike the Navy in that regard... good luck with the writing

    Oh don't worry. My platoon sergeant's rank just keeps getting lower and lower. Not the original person, [insert inappropriate comment], but we keep running out of rank lol. My squad leader since March has been my rank, and we just finally got a shift leader (the one who is encouraging and supporting the writing) is kind of maybe hated or at least disliked by the commander. Luckily for us, it's because he constantly brings up all the ways his soldiers aren't being supported and gives no shits what people think about that so long as the soldiers and mission are both taken care of.

    Funny how my best NCO role models are the ones with the "worst" reputations...

    For lolz and a bit of food inspiration, I googled Scandinavian cuisine. Got a lot of pictures of delicious fishes, dark game meats and taters served with greens or beautiful salads, and berries. In the Midwest, the ubiquitous Scandinavian dish is Swedish meatballs in a sickly sweet, grey Disgusting Sauce. You eat them with toothpicks and attempt to find some other way to compliment the host. Yeah...

    Considering those are basically my four favorite food types, I'm pretty miffed the Midwest is so stuck on those Disgusting Sauces. There is a recipe in my Ancestral Chef book, so I may have to give them a second chance. It's also really making me want to buy more of the bison from the commissary, but $10 a pound. Bluh. I may have to do some experimenting in between rolling out of bed this weekend. It's gonna be another packed one too.

    Isn't the stuff in High Street Market grass-fed Australian beef though? I didn't know that store had their own farm and sold their own beef? The stuff I used to buy from them seemed okay (AU Ribeye) but frankly I got a few tough/nasty batches and ended up switching to the steak in Hanaro Mart.

    Hard to know what your getting here. The people I talked to about the Han-u Korean beef say it's supposed to be grass-fed, but isn't necessarily. Do you two Seoul residents know?

    Ah if only we all lived in Seoul...

    From what I can tell, Korean beef is fed whatever they can, which is better than US CAFO as it's not economical to grow corn in Korea (doesn't stop the north from trying for some reason though.). I still prefer Aussie; never had anything bad from them yet.
