    Its a pain when you do everything 'right' and the meal just doesn't turn out right. Hopefully you can fix them up enough to make them tasty. Glad you have the nice snow tires!! Makes a huge difference I know. Our SUV has rather old tires on and it is a good thing that I don't drive much when the roads are not good. Growing up in a country where you don't ever have to deal with snow makes me a baby when it comes to driving in it. I am very happy to have 4 x 4 now though, we used to have a Lincoln Towncar (that I loved!!) but she really didn't do well in snow Glad others are enjoying your car too - eye candy is good for the soul I think

    The thing that made stocks easy for me, was putting two open containers in my freezer, one for poultry bones, one for everything else. Yes, they get a bit frosty, but not having to wrestle with the lids each time, made it easy to just toss the bones in there, and so I did. When a container is full, I cram the bones into my crockpot, and let it simmer for two days.

    I think I fixed the stock. One teaspoon of salt and reduced by 1/3 - magic! I am thinking I will have half a cup or so a day for my first meal of the day. It will be easier next time. And my chicken soup tasted better this morning too. I wasn't hungry at all but I did eat because I'm going to be gone all day. I'm taking some provisions, but fasting did not seem like a good option. I'll be far from home and around other people. Looking forward to the opera!

    Wow Siobhan, you sure are doing well with the fat loss - especially since you don't have much anymore. COngratulations And I am glad you are setting yourself up for victory by taking something good with you, too easy to be swayed by others grazing on crap! Enjoy the opera - that sounds awesome!

    The opera was fantastic! Really extraordinary. I am so happy that the Met brings grand opera to all of us out here in the sticks. And I am very glad I took smoked salmon, olives, blackberries, and kombucha. There is a lot of food at the theater, all of it junk. And that is too long to be without food. I'm really happy to return home without having to dive for the refrigerator.

    I feel like I am in a losing pattern, you know what I mean? Maybe it is being alcohol-free. I was consuming a lot of empty calories that way. Wine does have some health benefits, and it surely is nice, but really it is mostly empty calories.

    Well, my chicken stock is magically transformed into liquid wonderful. Tastes like a chicken dinner in a soup spoon. Beautiful complex flavor. Hmmm. Wonder if I will be able to reproduce it?

    Mark's carnitas recipe looks fab - must make that tomorrow. I must, I must!

    Woke up this morning at 8:30 AM - had to be at church for choir practice at 9! Good thing I laid out my clothes last night. Was very surprised when I pulled out of the garage and there was fresh snow. The tires are fabulous! Really, really, really great. With the other tires I would have been sliding all over. Now my car is transformed into a little red snowplow. Don't worry, I am still driving very carefully. Lost my voice halfway through the service, but it doesn't really matter. The choir was very, very skinny because everyone is sick. I can't sing very well but I'm a warm body that takes up space so it was good.

    The oven is full of chicken drumsticks that I got for a ridiculous price - conventional chicken, but I do the best I can. The pork is all ready to go in when the drumsticks come out. I'm off to see "Life of Pi" with a couple of friends. When I get home the house should be full of delicious aromas.

    I'm sure I'm taking the weight off because I've reined in the carbs. Carbs are the product of Satan.
