I've always been someone who has been able to re-invent herself--reorient herself--even in fairly trying times. I'm struggling to do that right now. I'll be back when I've righted the ship. I'm on your side.
Been a couple very hard days for me here. A couple very trying days taking care of my dad in the midst of recovering from this last infection. The feeling of doom--partly because I've been drinking coke to settle my stomach from the antibiotic--the sugar no doubt removing my sense of occasional euphoria I get … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Perspective
I woke early this morning precisely when I had my best shot at sleeping in. Many people, including much of my family--think that I worry too much, am too paranoid. Maybe that's true. But I am the care-giver for people with compromised immune systems and even I have had more infections than usual this winter--all … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams -Immunity Part 2

I'll serve it with some wild … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Chicken Adobo

Next time I will only cure the legs 24 hours instead of 48. Also to cut back on saltiness. 3. Always rinse the legs thoroughly and … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Duck Confit Recipe test
