If you stop by my weekly menu, you’ll see that I’m making adjustments as we go. For example, originally I’d thought that tomorrow (November 13th) was the Feast of St. Josephat. Silly me! It’s today, which means that we’ll have to honor him tomorrow with those Polish pierogies ’cause I’m not ready to make them tonight.
Sorry, Mother Cabrini. We’ll do pasta for you on another day.
I did, however, make “Poor Man’s Goose” last night, and can now cross “serve my family liver” off the bucket list. Honestly, it wasn’t bad, and frying it in bacon drippings made all the difference. As Jem remarked, “It’s just really texture-y”, so I think that “next” time, (should there be a next time), I will not bake the liver after frying it. That way, it’ll keep its crispness.
Or so the theory goes.
Hey, at $2.89/lb, liver is an economical and extremely healthy choice. I do think I’ll keep experimenting.
And hey, did you notice? Oranges are back in season!
Being every bit a mother, I finished off those oranges after he’d sucked out the juice.
(TMI? Forgive me.)
Lastly, you may have also noted from my weekly menu that I am not (currently) following the Whole30 plan. Au contraire! Au EXTREME contraire. Meanwhile, my paunch remains stubbornly in place as I try to decide which food philosophy to follow.
Unfortunately, there are thousands of food philosophies. Eat meat and no grain; eat grain and no meat; eat low-fat dairy; eat full-fat dairy; eat no dairy whatsoever; have a glass of red wine with every meal. (Now that last one sounds the most appealing.)
How about this? Eat less and exercise more.
Yeah, I agree. That one’s WAY too hard.
It’s true that personally, I do better with limits. It’s an all-or-nothing thing, and I really do hate that about my temperament. That’s why the Made to Crave book hit home; I know that I can only overcome my issues with God. I’m told that it’s the same way with Light Weigh, and think that should the scheduling stars align in my favor, I’ll join a Light Weigh group if offered the chance.
Meanwhile I’ll continue to discern and pray. God is good, all the time…and all the time, God is good.
(Name that movie! Jamie, I know you can.)
Happy Wednesday, everyone! Yes, the week is halfway over. Yes, the days are rushing past.
