Reflecting on the past eating.
Top picture is my cioppino–best ever even though it was missing some crab claws. The method of searing the shrimp and scallops is definitely the way to go. Cook the mussels and crab if you have it separately, then spoon the broth (made with salmon and chorizo) over the top, top with parsley/tarragon. Best soup ever made. Bernaise for the steak also made with tarragon. Messed the picture up slightly, but what a couple dinners. And all but the potatoes were carnivore and/or keto. We had asparagus as well. My son broiled the lobster tail to perfection.
Didn’t get pictures of the stuffed French toast. But we did do the carnivore casserole one morning:
I’m not caught up with cleaning up and don’t plan to be. I need a day of rest here with Agatha Christie. And a fast day. All by the fire. I say this as I watch it flicker–snowing outside. Several inches expected.
Dreams: Had so many of them. Was having a dinner party and the guests all showed up and I didn’t have the appetizers out. Kept trying to get them done. One guest, a friend, Donna, kept jumping on the couch. Then I was outside jumping over my property fence–I’d just bought the house. There was a huge drop-off just over the fence. Then I had some kind of infection and my doctor, Dr. Wissman was making me eat these poached eggs, cold out of the fridge. They tasted better than they looked. There was much more to this whole dream, but it escapes me.

I love words so I write them. I’ve been doing that since I was old enough to read. I am a published literary writer and I was an adjunct English professor at Northern Michigan University for many years. I write and live and love off the grid on 35 acres and a trout stream in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my son, Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, and with an English Shepherd dog named Maggie, and with my husband when he can make it here which isn’t often. This blog started out being about my work, and it will continue to be. ( I’m working on a novel about premonitions and dreams.) But this blog is also about living off the grid and about my experimentation with diet—most recently the Carnivore Diet. I started on the Ketogenic diet, but have moved into Carnivore. How long, I don’t know. But I’ve become interest in the effects of diet on not just my health, but on creativity. And I’m interested in the effects of the diet on my dreams.
Ah, dreams... The day before my son was born, my mother “dreamed” or was told my son would have Down Syndrome, something she told my brother ahead of time. I’ve never known what to make of that. So I’m interested in prophetic dreams, lucid dreaming, creativity and dreams, night terrors. Who isn't interested in that? I’m interested in Freud (more Jung) and Einstein’s theories of time and how their ideas inform my dreams. I’m interested in mining a deeper relationship with a dream world not confined to daytime experiences, and how the night might inform a more fully imagined daytime “reality.” And vice-versa. Which is the dream?? I’m exploring dreams of all sorts. Come explore with me…
