Well, this is my second night with beef in the slow cooker! It was so successful last night that I prepped the rest and brought it in. Honestly, it is too bad I can't feed that patients; it would be so much better than the shite they are eating.
Green & Black's Maya Gold Chocolate is unbelievable!
Very proud of myself. I was really hungry and quite stressed. I had some beef stew and a large bowl of leafy greens with some vegetables I scavenged from the caf. Three squares of the aforementioned chocolate. I did not dive headfirst into a trough of sugar.
Having a lovely cup of Earl Grey.
I love Earl Grey so much.
Did u read Mark's post on meditating?
I always considered my bible reading each morning as meditating,
but, for about a month now, I've done 30 minutes of yoga and meditation upon rising.
It has been so wonderful..
I've concentrated on the positive things in our world instead of worrying about all of the problems.
Then I dunk my face in a bowl of ice water!! Eye opening, Sio.
Another note on the lamb, I don't know the guy you quoted as saying the US lamb was ok - we live right near the feedlots where there are thousands upon thousands of sheep all mired in poop. I have read other sources talking about the terrible quality of non grass fed lamb in the US as they are fed foods that are highly inappropriate for a sheep. I do know that we live near some of the heaviest concentration of lamb feedlots and there is no way I will eat lamb from the US unless I know it was raised on grass - and then it is even more expensive. If buying lamb here it is best to look for lamb from New Zealand as they don't do feedlots .... from what I have read. FWIW - just my thoughts on the sheep especially as you have been told that the lamb here is good

That is terrible, Coll! I only eat the local stuff, which is all family farm, or from New Zealand. We don't have any other kind available, at least that I have seen. But it is all $18-$20 a pound, yikes. So sad that apparently lambs can't be raised well without ending up costing a fortune. I've always found it weird that if you go to a restaurant around here, lobster is $25 when I know perfectly well the fishermen are getting $3 a pound.
It has always seemed to me that lamb should be a very good source of meat - sheep don't eat as much as cows and they often have twins. And lamb is a total nose to tail animal. But I'm not a farmer, I don't know anything.
And Earl Grey is the best!
Saw this link on ecks's journal - Fat Head Followup - YouTube. Be sure to watch it! I actually cried a little. Seeing him on his own farm, his daughters growing up so healthy and strong - it makes me really happy.
Am on a bit of an egg eating binge. Had two eggs with some beef stew this morning and just had a three-egg omelet with some bacon. After having a meal before midnight, I didn't eat again at work and when I got home at 7:30 AM I was starved. Slept great with a full tummy.
Due to my slow cooker work hijinks, I have more food after my work days than I did before. Awesome! The second batch of beef stew was better. Secret ingredient: tarragon.
Went to the pool and had a great swim and long sauna and shower. Too long. I was very overheated.
