Welcome to 2011

Hey all, hope you have had a great holiday season, managed not to eat too much crap and got in plenty of socializing. We made it through without too much disruption to our GAPS diet. It isn’t easy to maintain your dietary guidelines under such exuberant hospitality that often occurs in these circumstances! I have been doing a lot of thinking, cooking, and cleaning lately hoping to get my home and mind organized to a degree where I can manage to juggle all the things I would like to do, finish and get involved in this year.

She is my original chef hero and if it hadn’t been for her ideals and the things she has created to help and improve the situation of the people around her, first locally and then onto the National and International scale, I would have had a lot less faith in humanity and our ability to get past this stupid economy and world we have greedily created to the happy existence for everybody that many of us are currently creating, (or at least thinking about creating).
