  1. I'm sprouting quinoa as I type!

    And tonight is my favorite night...broc/caul with cream and local cheddar, baked to perfection. Might slice a few onions into it as well.

    TONS of bacon, duck eggs, chicken eggs, (((peanut butter))), yogurt, green apples for me, red apples for him, salted butter by the spoonful, grass-fed beef chuck roast with onions, salmon three ways.

    Might have to do something massaged...with kale. Kale loves to be massaged in salt and then mixed with vinegar. Maybe I'll add some crispy almonds to that. Have local artisal Thai sauerkraut here right now that goes with with our eggs and bacon.

    Oh, and see...these pointy teeth in the corners of my mouth?



  2. Artisal?? What's that??

    Sounds like something from an aerosol can.



  3. I spy those teeth! All carnivores here too, though tonight's fish was so soft we didn't need our meat teeth.

    I should put Cauliflower souffle back on my menu! I used to make it all the time. Perhaps I need your recipe ??? Is it on your blog?

    So, I was trying to source raw peanuts the other day (for my peanut butter making adventure), and nearly got into it with the guy who worked in the bulk section over whether his peanuts (that he admitted were irradiated and would not sprout) were actually raw (which he insisted they were). I wanted to scream that just because they hadn't been roasted, didn't make them RAW. Like corn flakes and pasteurized milk is a "raw" breakfast for most people. Oi!

  4. LOL! Cornflakes and pasteurized milk = raw breakfast!

    For the crucifers:
    1 head broccoli, chopped
    1 head cauliflower, chopped
    1-2 cups cream
    some finely grated raw sheep's cheese, like a reggiano
    a ton of something sharp (we shred raw cheddar)

    Layer everything in a roasting pan. Bake for 40 min at 400 F. Add salt or pepper or sliced red pepper or cayenne or grated or chopped onions before baking if you wish.
