It’s all over now, the stress, the cooking, the music,
the drinking, Christmas has come and gone at my house. To my most delighted surprise, it went really great this year. My parents came to spend a few days with us, and they were kind enough to provide the Turkey – which we tracked down from a Island Natural Market that supplied a free range, organic Turkey from Gabriola Island. T’was a delicious bird indeed, and quite massive. I’m not sure if they were serious or not, but my parents claim to have been “converted” to future turkey’s being from the same circumstances….we shall see.
So now it’s right back to reality. Finish school, working, cleaning, knitting and playing roller derby. I can hardly believe that time is rushing by like it seems to be doing, and I’ve been thinking about what (if any) my New Year’s Resolutions will be. Do you have any?
I haven’t talked much about the ethical meat eating plan lately. I am still on it, going strong since August. That is, no non-ethically raised meat in my mouth. Went digging in the deep freeze for dinner tonight and pulled out some steaks from Outwest Ranches (South Surrey) so I am hoping to turn these bad boys into something delish.
I am still really happy about the decision and although it takes some getting used to, the peace of mind that I have about knowing where my food comes from is worth it! Plus, I have been pushed to try cooking all vegetarian-style which ain’t so bad after all. I am craving a burger though, which is ok because I also have 1lb of ground beef from Ryder Lake Beef Sales from the fall. Maybe this weekend…..
But for the next two days I will probably eat vegetarian-like so I guess I better do some recipe research!
Back to working on those legwarmers, which are moving right along quite nicely.
