Anyone besides me having fried turkey on Thursday? It's become a tradition and it's great because Rich does it all outside and gives me a little more room in my itty-bitty kitchen:)

Skinny Bitch

Okay, I'm up in the Hill Country for a few days and picked up the book Skinny Bitch last week because I thought it would be interesting reading. Started out talking about artificial sweeteners (bad), refined sugars (bad), carbs (not all bad), etc.

Then, I got to the chapter on the meat industry. Thought I'd skip past but a caption said, "if the animals have to go through it the least you can do is read this." I did and I was totally (and I mean TOTALLY) disgusted. Had nightmares, the whole bit.

Rich called the next morning on his way to work and I grossed him out so bad he said he was glad he had arrived at work and would be able to click his phone shut. Those weren't his exact words but I got the point.

So, if you're even contemplating becoming a vegan/vegetarian, I suggest getting the book. Otherwise, skip the chapter...or the book altogether.

Waller - Rocky's BBQ

Have learned from a reliable source that the owner of Rocky's has had some financial difficulties. It is highly doubtful it will re-open.
