The spice paste on this roast was out of this world: ginger root, garlic, honey, rosemary, chili flakes, a few other things. Another seed. My son John helped me prep it. It should have been out of this world, but am certain Dad's oven is too hot. It weighed seven pounds and the recipe said … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams — Leg of Lamb
My dad has Parkinson's. That's him with me in the last photo in his new road ready golf cart--something that might give him some freedom when he can't walk anymore. He can drive through the harbor, talk to folks, get around. Our family got people around, so it's only fitting. Steam boat captains, dray people--gotta … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Wheels
My head explodes. No, really it does. Exploding Head Syndrome. Ever heard of it? It's where (when you are just falling asleep or in a half sleep) you hear a loud noise like a slamming door, breaking glass, dropping books, explosions of all kinds and/or you hear someone call your name. It can be accompanied … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams -Exploding Head Syndrome
Writers know better than anyone that sometimes words don't cut it. Sometimes the more important it is to get those words right, the more they fail you. Those are the times I don't even try to be eloquent. This was my mom's room and now it's mine as I take care of my dad. And … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – May 17th – Mom’s Room – Mom’s birthday
Mortar & Pestle Ok, so herbs are not totally carnivore, but I also notice not too many carnivore types are really purists. Mikhaila Peterson, pretty strict, drinks Bourbon or whiskey or some hard liquor. Most of them put spices on their steaks, right?? I plan to do a 12 hour slow roasted leg of … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Mortar & Pestle
Happy Mother's Day, all. Have a lovely Sunday. Flowers sent to me by my son John and his girlfriend Christie. I love them, the colors. So perfect!!
Been about three weeks from first picture to second. (And my hair had been styled by a hairdresser in first picture). Slight difference on face/neck. My thoughts on this neck thing and my diet: I still have not completely lost my neck and I am not certain if my skin on my face will adjust … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Maintenance Thoughts (Or close)
Chicken and Noodles. I know. Not on Carnivore. I have to make my dad stuff he likes and try to eat my way on the side. This sauce isn't quite like what he and mom made when I was a kid, but it smacks of it all. It was really fabulous (the noodles aren't quite … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams — Chicken and Noodles??
Yesterday was 70 degrees and full sun and today it's 48 and rain. You can see the wet decking, but somehow not the drops. I stick my nose out there to take my dog for a "quick pee"-- she knows the drill-- and take stock. I needn't worry about watering the potato and pea seeds … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams -Chicken Thighs and Drizzle
Soil Testing. Happy Sunday. So far we are just testing ph for potatoes and peas. Soon we will test the rest of the beds for the other plants which won't go in for weeks here yet so will report in on the rest of the testing. At least two weeks. I bought a Burpee testing … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Soil Testing
