    Yay! I have a half bottle with a cork stuck in the neck that snapped off at the top, we may need to strain the cork out before ingesting.

    I have a pair of size 40 Vibram Merrels for sale if anyone wants them? $20 and they're yours. Very lightly worn as they did bad things to my toes and then I needed to move to orthotics anyway which wouldn't fit (not to mention pointless use of barefoot shoes).

    Hey,
    Thanks for the welcome Transition has mostly been good, though Im still struggling to find the right breakfast for me!
    I mean, bacon and eggs are good, but not for every breakfast!
    I also struggle to eat fat- I've always been a CW girl and lost the taste for it (I have a 'sweet tooth' rather than a 'fat tooth'!)
    It's so good to be here!

    hiya Heather - I actually enjoy boiled eggs for brekkie - if I have it, but sometimes I eat steak and salad, or brocolli, cauli and spinach with cheese on top. Really breakfast can be anything. My DH doesn't really get into this way of eating, however he eats what I put in front of him - so if he gets Steak and mushrooms for breakfast on a bed of lettuce - he hasn't complained yet.
    You will find what works for you, and it might be that you don't eat until lunch time ?????
    But good luck and please don't be a stranger. We have far too much fun on this thread and hopefully we don't offend anyone along the way -

    Hi hi everyone! Lemoncello - lovely stuff. Brie omelettes. More yum. I used to sometimes indulge in brie macaroni and cheese.

    Gwamma, it was about 1:15am here when you asked me what time it was, but I had practically fallen asleep on my keyboard.

    I slept in this morning. It felt great.

    While I love the Limoncello from Italy, I can make a very good imitation of it for about a third of the price, so I usually do that. Pretty simple: zest a lemon or two in strips (try not to get the pith as it's bitter), put the strips in a bottle of vodka. Everything I've read says it takes a week, but I get a nice lemony flavor overnight. If it's too sour, add a little sweetener of choice, and if you don't like it clear, squeeze a little lemon juice in it. I can make a liter for just under $8 compared to the $25 authentic one. Actually, any citrus zest works really well in vodka.

    Gwamma, hope you don't have to sit on pillows for too long. But I bet the ride was tons of fun.

    LL, what kind of newsletter do you do?

    Sea, it amazes me how calm you are when the cat has a rat in the house. That would send me shrieking like an old 1950's comic strip woman standing on a chair. I loathe mice and rats. I'd rather see a snake in my house than a rodent. *shudder* We get little tiny lizards here, but they're so cute that if they come into the house, I catch them and release them outside.

    my exhubby taught me indirectly not to be scared of almost anything. all this fear of the unknown is one thing but the hider was already in my house. mice and rats are pretty inconsequential in the face of that. he didnt teach me not to be scared of sharks when i am diving but i am reliably told the trick there is to make a conscious decision not to care about them. which is gonna be my next plan of attack! my dad btw shot an entire wall out of a house with a shotgun when he was a kid as there was a cobra in the house. the house was made of tin and there were shotguns all over the place. the cobra was in front of the wall in the bedroom at the bottom of the bed when he woke up. he got in trouble LOL

    i make brie sauce to go with pan fried chicken breasts but never thought of brie mac n cheese. brie cauli and cheese it would have to be now. GF pasta is truly disgusting. too much so to be any part of any 20%. blue cheese cauli and cheese i reckon would be good too.

    Yum! Sadly, since going "no factory meat," chicken will probably be a once or twice a month thing. It's really all mental. A factory chicken on sale can be less than a dollar a pound. Free wheeling, running around chickens who got to live without getting their beaks cut off - between five and seven dollars a pound. Once I get over that, I'm sure I'll add a weekly chicken back into my life. It's a matter of reminding myself that with factory chicken, I throw away the skin and bones and with pastured, I can use everything. And now: because I want to put brie sauce over chicken breasts!

    I've never tried GF pasta, and since I allow myself the occasional wheat treat, I eat a pasta called Fiber Gourmet. I don't know how they do it, but it's lower calories (about 33%). The only difference I really notice is cooking time. I allow myself a 3 oz portion when I eat it. I haven't tried to make cauliflower rice yet, but it's definitely on my to-do list.

    Oh, my manners! Good morning everyone! I'm guessing most of you are still asleep since it's about 4am your time tomorrow. LOL. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Sunny and 50F (10degC). After a couple of rainy/cloudy days, it's good to see some sunshine, even for a lazy old layabout like me.
