are there cultures where asking how are you is not considered polite? because those are my people. up north, i would often get the what’s new query. answer being: i live in fort bragg, absolutely nothing new, duh. and if you know me at all, how i am is determined by the weather. we are either sunny or not at all sunny. every once in awhile i succumb to the popular trend of self-improvement through diet. but, sadly, i never come to any rays of godlight problems solved now and forevermore conclusions. instead, i always bump up against the same small sensible reminders . . . moderation is good, balance is key, portion size matters, and being fueled by food is the goal. also i find that even though eggs are a go-to food for many, i don’t think they sit well with me. best if i just include them in cake batters. and chocolate, high-quality and tasting of earth adventure & life itself, is awfully binding. again, best for me in cake form.
but today i think i lighted on a perfect personal health adventure . . . a capricorn inspired menu! i already know the tail end is a power food source for me; i can never have enough tinned fishes, smoked salmon, ceviche, sashimi, and seafood dishes. i like goat meat and cheeses. my very favorite cheese is drunken goat from spain with a wine washed rind. today i picked up to taste-test goat gouda, goat yogurt, goat milk, and goat butter. and we all know, as always, the butter will be key.
