I'm so glad to hear you're coming back to life. Grief is so strange and unpredictable. Enjoy your reading. That book at the bottom of your stack is pretty weird. I used to have it. It tells you to eat raw brains and stuff. (At least that's the kind of thing I remember from it.) Who knows, though. It may be just the thing!

Laurie,
Thanks for the laugh this morning! The book, Nourishing Traditions, is based on the research of Weston A. Price who was a dentist who studied traditional cultures all over the world. There is a brief section that shows how to prepare and serve raw meat. Raw meat should be grassfed, organic, frozen for 14 days, blah, blah, blah... Anyway, that chapter in my book is unused! I like to try new foods, but I don't think I'll ever be a steak tartare fan. That being said, we do try to eat what are called nutrient-dense foods. Grassfed meat; raw milk from pastured cows; fresh, local, produce (organic when possible); soaked grains, etc... I never know when to use semi-colons. Oh well!

Haha! I only notice punctuation when it fails to make its point, so to speak, or when it is absent.

I kind of wish I still had that book now that I actually try to eat healthy foods. I got rid of it years ago because it was full of stuff I wouldn't even consider. Now that I make my own hummus and tzatziki (sp? - I can make it, but not spell it) and even went vegetarian for the better part of a year, I think I'm game for a lot of new ideas. I'm not game for raw brain, but when I was a kid we used to sneak bites of raw hamburger whenever we got a chance. YUM! Unfortunately you don't dare do that anymore.
