    I will confess to missing nachos. But I try not to think about it.

    Tex-Mex, with its emphasis on beans and corn, takes a lot of tweaking to become primal. Rats. Just when I had developed a taste for it too.

    I had the opposite experience with Tex-Mex, as my favorite dish was fajitas, but I often thought I 'should' eat more beans and rice. Now I order up a sizzling plate of meat, extra onions and peppers, hold the tortillas. Pile on the sour cream and guacamole, and dig in with a fork. Heaven!

    But saying 'no' to the flan is still hard.

    Not too many straight up Tex-Mex restaurants around here, I'm afraid, or I'm sure there would be more options. Basically taco places, as far as I know. And steak grills, which is not quite the same thing. But yes, meat, veggies, and guac sounds absolutely wonderful.

    I love Mexican-type grilled meats, unfortunately finding them in Maine is not easy. Non-existent in these parts, actually. Have to make my own, which is not a hardship. Actually what I miss is the margaritas...and the chips...and the fun and fellowship that always seemed to happen at Mexican restaurants. But I know that corn never agreed with me - even as I denied it, I knew corn was not my friend. But those happy memories of youth and young adulthood with a group of friends and table-ful of Mex food - well, I am glad I have the memories.

    Well it's been a weird week... Not bad, just weird.

    I broke two smart phones this week...dang. Just because one has a smart phone doesn't make him any less of a dumbass! I went to the beach and waded in up to my knees with my Droid somethingorother safely tucked into my breast pocket. SWMBO And. I both felt something nibbling at our toes and suddenly she shrieked and said, it's on my foot get it!! So I reached down and felt around, but didn't find anything. Standing up I realized I had submerged my pocket and phone in the salty brine. I took the battery out right away and put the phone and battery into a jar of dehydrating crystals, but it was dead, Jim! Sigh...

    So I went to the Verizon Store and I'm due for an upgrade, I was waiting for the new iPhone to come out but decided I'd upgrade then to the current iPhone. I had nearly 24 trouble free hours with that one. I was helping my cousin move out of her house, doing dump runs and was standing on the truck bed throwing trash into this huge dumpster at the town dump. The dumpster sits in this huge concrete well and the truck is parked on a tall ramp above it. I do not remember why I felt it was necessary to put the phone in my breast pocket, but there it was. Until I grabbed some awkward piece of trash and heaved it into the dumpster. On its way past my body, some bit of it smacked my shirt and poked the phone out of my pocket sending it flying. I nearly caught it, but missed and the phone fell and smashed on the concrete ramp, skittered across it, then fell between the dumpster and the side of this huge concrete well a total of about 20 feet to the ground.

    The dump manager was kind enough to get a huge front end loader and move the dumpster so I could retrieve the phone, but in moving it crushed it further.

    Sigh...

    Oh and after the moving party we all went to my cousins new house and had Pizza. I ate a lot of it, and washed it down with beer.

    So this morning, hungover and with a very tentative, noisy wheat belly, we hosted a belated birthday party for Boy with 25 screaming kids, each one louder than the rest. It was two of the longest hours of my life...

    I do not know what I did to deserve all this, but I am deeply sorry for it.

    The sermon today in church was all about how wonderful children are. I remain unconvinced.

    Kidding! Kids are great. Years from now you will look back on that party and be deeply happy. And you will be thin and trim and full of energy and your kid will be all grown up and you will wish he was a kid again. But! You will have grandchildren. (Or maybe you already do.) It's all good.

    No, no Grandchildren yet... But the two boys from the first litter are now in their twenties, so I guess anything is possible.

    Fasting until dinner today, this weekend was a dark time for Primal eating, pizza was had, sandwiches were had, ice-cream cake was had... and beer.

    So this week will be better!

    Funny how I read that middle sentence and my stomach clenches into a knot...pizza...beer...ice cream. For better or worse, those things would make me sick as a dog. I've come to the conclusion that dairy is a problem for me when it is combined with certain other foods - that's all I'm going to say, TMI already! However, I think a certain amount of indulgence can be indulged in and progress still be made.

    This week will be great!

    Children ARE wonderful. Especially in a light cream sauce.

    Siobahn- Well in terms of indulgences, I didn't really enjoy any of it all that much... begging the question why did I did I eat so much of it? A question that I don't have a good answer for except that it was what was put in front of me and I was hungry. I will say that my stomach did complain audibly though the digestion process and I was all bubbly and gassey.

    There wasn't any real discomfort, but I wouldn't want to repeat it.

    Sabine- Lol, well cream sauce is not strictly Primal, so maybe Hollandaise made with Coconut oil?
