People who have near death experiences all talk about a peaceful, euphoric , bright light enveloping them. From the moment we are conceived, we are moving towards that light. This is my heels diggin' in, I don't wanna' go, reluctant journey, into the light. Stephen

Biorhythms? / Joie de vivre, please come home.

So if you've been around here before, you know I've been hiding lately.  When the "force" is not with you, hunker down. Time to de-hunker.  It's raining, I'm cooking, and  quite possibly it's time for some Carpe Diem.  Even when hunkered down you still have to eat.  I have been eating.

Big time cholesterol pout.

Pretty boring, but moving along........Grilled pork tenderloin, roasted spuds, salad.

Roasted cajun chicken...........

became grilled chicken and cheese sandwiches.  After it was chicken and mashed potatoes w/salad

Finally.....RED MEAT!  Petite sirloin is good.

Damn chickens anyway.

chickens and corn, chickens and corn, chickens and corn........

Ahhh. Crock pot.  That's elk sirloin, quickly charred on the grill, then into the pot with Anasazi and small Red beans. Plus a bunch of veggie stuff as well.  That right there is COMFORT FOOD!

Pistachios with plums and tangelo are comfortable as well.

This is the Babe's idea of comfort food. Alfredo with anything and buttery bread.

She is NOT quite as fond of BBQ Pork Ribs.  She's weird.

Anyway,  Besides cooking and eating, what do you do to get the "force" back up and running?

With all those chicken based meals, are you running a chicken factory? Some of those muchies looked most tempting.

Stop thinking so hard - let go and let it flow...get outside and witness the majesty that is life - your words will return when the time is right. Until then, keep cooking, because you're damn good at it. Oh, and the Babe has a point - what could be more comforting than creamy pasta and bread? Nothing.
