I made this really delicious raw mud pie, omg..DELICIOUS! Turtle and I ate it, in two days. I let her have it for lunch and breakfast. That is what i love about raw eating, the “sweets” are completely healthy and acceptable for consuming for breakfast. I will be putting that recipe in the book. I’ve had quite a few people over this week for raw food meals..which is soo fun and soul nourishing! I’m on my moon this week, which means I cannot prepare any food..and man, that is really rough on me.. I LOVE to prepare meals and snacks and desserts!!
Speaking of the book…it’s well on its way to being finished. I need to put a few more recipes in there, and add some more important info, but i am hoping to be DONE with it, and have it ready and for sale by fall.. meaning..no LATER than sept. I”M REALLY excited!!
I also made some really good raw “potato” salad and some amazing beet burgers. YUUUMMMEEEEHHH.
And I”m happy to report that I’ve started my workout regime again. It’s Zuzana’s, so it will be fun, and fast and rewarding. I’ve been off coffee for three days and already feel 98% better. People say I look really good, which is nice to hear, but I have some places that are in need of a little pick me up, haa haa!!
We are going to put more photos up for sale, i think on this website.. or on rogue lens. Stay tuned, and I’ll keep you posted on that. You can of course, order any photo you want at anytime, just email me and let me know what you want and we can make arrangements.
We are headed back home this week because its Indian Day celebration, so you KNOW where I gotta be!! Wacipi-ing it up baybee!! But I plan to stay raw even there, ill just bring my food and my cooler and such and just doo it! LOL
Life continues to be AHHMAZING!! I love my life, my family, my house, and our yard, and my studio.
That is all for now.. please, leave me a comment or two or drop me an email.
These days have been so wonderful. Everyday is fabulous really.
I have been busy trying to downscale our “stuff” to what is merely important. We are getting things in place for our next move and then our final big move.
We are getting back to our organic selves that we lost when we moved to Vulgartine.
So the search for land has begun. This time, it will be what we want, on our terms. No mortgage, No debt, No covenants. We will put our Yurt on it, while we build our sustainable house building as we can afford. What that will be has yet to be decided. We have so many options. Straw bale, Earthship, Pallet. Mihiga ki has some really great ideas that I’m excited about. I’d live in the Yurt forever too. That’s my heart home. I’ve found some really great deals on land.. not here in Verm though. The great thing about this place and why we talked seriously about buying land here is becuase Turtle has her cousins and her friends, and mihigna ki and I have a community that we already know and love and people here who love us! And after the fiasco in Vulgertine, we dont want to end up in the same kind of situation. Of course, my second choice would be MT. I have friends there and Turtle and mihigna ki cant wait to go to MT.
Anyway, it’s all infantile right now. But it’s exciting to take baby steps.
Turtle has been doing a lot of intentional schooling of late. She will go and get her book and take it out and work on it, for hours. Watching her breeze through her homeschool book is mind blowing, becuase I have to make it challenging for her. and yet it made me realize I need to get off my ass and get my curriculum done. She is soo smart, she will never be challenged by the school here, (obvoiusly since the preschool disaster) But that is okay with me; because seeing her use so many skills that most 4 y.o’s dont have, makes me feel like I have succeeding in all I’ve done for her organically. I.E, she can count and knows her ABC and colors and can identify numbers (like groups of things) so many other things and I’ve NEVER TAUGHT her. She got it from living life. Right now, I’m having to make her workbook challenging by making her do her work in Lakota and ASL. She’s completely outgrown all the ASL videos at the library, because she has known those words since she could talk. That is good for me, because it makes me realize I need to get my ASL classes going.
Some days, I feel like I’ve screwed up as a parent. Then days like we’ve had these past few, re ground me, and make me realize I”m putting myself on that hook too much again. I’m still human, and still very much learning.
I have some other major news, but I cant say it yet. But in a few days, I can. I’m really excited to tell you!
I’ve gone back to being High Raw since returning from OH. I feel 100% better and like myself again. Experimenting with some turkey day recipes for mihigna ki and I since we will be in a house full of meat and potato people. I have a cranberry sauce recipe to moan about!!! heavenly not, sickly. lol!!
I”m tired now, and the computer is bothering my face.. (EMF”s I’m real sensitive to that stuff.)
So I need to go.
I see you are all here, but NO ONE is leaving me comments!!!!

NOTE: this post discusses health issues, so if you are quesy, I’d skip it.
I know what is right to do for myself, and my body, and I know what happens when I don’t. Still, I”m not perfect, I have bouts of laziness and I slip, and make bad choices. I falsely tell myself I’m saving time, which, is really a crock of crap, because I’m not
Both my sisters now live in the same town as I, so we have been getting together most everyday, all day. They do not eat like me. In fact, one of them, is acomplete SAD (Standard American Diet)eater, and the other one eats a LOT of meat, and processed food. Well, we love having girl time, and of course, much of our “girl time” is spent laughing our butts off, while we indulge in SAD food. Now, here’s the thing, I consciously put that stuff in my body, because it’s the feeling/association that I have with it. It’s comforting to me.
See, my oldest sister was always my “mother” she took care of me better than my parental units,(and I’ve had two or three) and so we have a tight bond. As I got older, I’d always go t her house, hang out or crash and sometimes live for awhile. She is KNOWN for her cooking, a freaking culinary genius, seriously, this woman could make a living as a caterer she is THAT good. Anyway, so in the Lakota way, she was always feeding me, when I showed up, and it was a comforting thing. And it wasn’t that she was cooking some high faluting food, it was just that SHE was feeding me, and so it was comforting. Anway, so now when we are at her house, we all eat dinner together, and her food tastes sooo good. It’s not the best for me, and my body rebels, but omg.. that woman could take commod cheese, put it on toast and make it taste good.
Anyway, I”m sort of blathering on here, but my point is, even though I know my body can’t handle that food so well anymore, I keep putting it in my mouth, because I fall into the same trap that so many do. Choosing to do something that is bad for us, or at least, not ideal for us, despite the fact that we know better, simply because we like the immediate feeling it gives us. Sorry, to use this analogy, but it’s no different than what drug users do.
So, why do we do it? Because we choose to, we consciously CHOOSE to. Then, we get the side effects and regret our choice. Here is what happens to me when I have chosen to not eat food that will nourish me. Within 12 hours, my face breaks out, acne is not something I EVER had an issue with, but when I eat food that has preservatives in it, or food that was cooked at high temperatures my face erupts. This is my bodies immediate way of trying to release the toxins, false ingredients from the food I consumed. My skin will either get oily or DRY, like,dragon scale dry. And I kid you NOT on this one, my hair gets less curly. I’m serious. When I’m eating healthy food, my hair is SUPER curly.
And the worst symptom i get, and it usually happens when I’ve consumed a incorrect food many days in a row, is a horrible build up of mucus in my body. Talk about ick nast!! But it’s my bodies way of (trying) to protect me from my own stupidity. And the only way to get rid of that mucus build up is for me to stop eating whatever bad food I’m eating and start eating correctly. Well, it’s more complex than that, but the quick run down is, stop eating the bad food, drink nothing but water, go on a green juice fast or combine my consumption of green juice with ONLY raw food. * Note* now don’t read this as you can go out and be gluttonous anytime you like, and then the super green juice will save you. I. E. dont use green juice and raw food as your repentance/penance. Make right choices most of the time, with a few actively conscious choices like a night out with the girls or a SAD food meal.
Now, if I make a really STUPID choice and eat fast food, meaning, anything that gets handed to me by a high school student wearing a ridiculous looking hat, I pay for immediately. When I finish the last bite of food, it leaves me in a less than kind way about 10 minutes later. I learned the hard way, but I was grateful for the lesson. So now, I call it fast food, fast exit. In what bit of research I’ve done, I know that when my (anyone’s) body consumes something it deems as poisonous or bad for it, it will do all it can to get rid of it as fast as possible. Think about what happens when people get drunk, or when you get the flu, or food poisoning.
As a result of this, I never consume fast food. I did mess up once but the price I paid WAS NOT worth it, and i’m a quick learner, so I will not make that mistake again. I am aware that my desire for consuming fast food, is not about the food, it’s again, about the feeling associated with the food. (being social, being with friends, hanging out with my family, etc.)
Now none of this is to say I don’t get cravings, because I do. But I am aware of what the craving is really about. Once I walk myself through it, I’m good.
okay, I have to run and put a sweet cunksi abu, but more on this later. Let me know if you have questions about anyting or need anything clarified.
be well, MBB

When I go to sleep at night, I (try to) give thanks for all that has transpired for me in my life up to that point; and that I can use it to wake up and be a better person the next day than I was the day previous.
I’ve been through a lot in life, and as I get older, I am so grateful that I am able to look back and see “oh, so that is why that happened! Or “Oh, I see where I’m supposed to use that now!” It’s an amazing present from creator and I love the clarity that comes post an experience.
I’ve been having those moments a lot, of late. As I was showing my friends some of my photos, the one from last spring came up, and I saw how heavy I had been. My friend got this wide eyed look, and asked, “When was that from?”
Tonight, as I wrote in my journal, I realized I’m finally settled again. Settled in my life, settled in my town and most of all, settled in my self. The last two years were hard, but they were worth it; as any hard time in my life has ever been. I know hell, I know its fires and it’s long journey out, but I don’t regret any of it. There are the tramatic parts of my time in vtine that I have to work through, but it will happen. Because no matter what, once I’m on the other side of whatever is going on, the one thing I’m always able to see is what it’s really about. And whether we are talking about my childhood or my weight gain or the tramatizing parts of my life in vtine, its what is under it all that makes it ultimately okay, ulitmately understandable.
Example, once I realized that all the abuse that was played out on me as a child, really had NOTHING to do WITH me, I was able to put those dragons to rest, move on and live an amazing life.
Many of the events from the last two years are enmeshed, however, certain things begat certain others. But, as far as the weight gain went, now that I’m on the other side of it, I’m grateful for it. I think previous, I’d always just taken my knowledge of food and nutrition in stride and took for granted that I was really athletic and didnt have to work hard to maintain my health.
I was always aware of what to eat and what not to eat, and why; it came easy, so I didn’t look any deeper or think any more of it. But the journey to get back to my healthy weight started me on a journey that took me the the depths of nutrition. I began reading books I’d never even gave a second glance previous. And while many of them say the same exact thing, some aspects of them were still eye opening.
I’ve lost my train of thought and its late..perhaps I shall return when I’ve remembered my point. ..
for now, MBB
So, I started doing those workouts that I found online, and they were hard, I did them every day for a week or two, and saw results immediately. Since I was always really athletic and had a lot of muscle mass, this came in handy, because muscle has memory, so it didn’t take too long to wake those old muscles up and get them strong again.
After the second week, I slacked off to maybe three times a week, and yet I still saw results. Now all this time, I didn’t change the way was eating, and was content with the way the weight was coming off with just the workouts. But eventually, I was not losing as much stomach fat as I would have liked, so I got frustrated and quit.
During this same time, I began eating an all vegetarian diet.. I ate all raw vegetables and fruits and didn’t ingest any cooked food. In a matter of a week, I lost so much body fat, I was amazed, and I felt better, cleaner, lighter, happier. I wanted to stay on a raw food diet until I lost an appropriate amount of body fat, then I’d start working out again, so I would really be able to see the results of my workout.
Well, during this time, we started the process of selling the ranch, and I totally got sidetracked on eating healthy. I felt how much processed, cooked food just drained me of energy and made me feel heavy, and dark, mood wise. I was always much grumpier when I’d eat cooked food. So, that for me, was the proof.
Well we sold the ranch and moved and I was so happy to be back in civilization and by so many resturants that I would go eat at them, totally by passing my commitment to raw food/real food eating. Hence, I put the weight back on, and was all sluggish. Again, I knew it was all my own doing, so I would be capable of how to un do it.
I’ve began working out again, which all by itself, does wonders for me, I tend to be way too much in my head, and working out forces me to be present in my body, in the moment, and when I’m done, I strive to keep myself present. That presence, is why I used to love doing Yoga. I will get back into it, once my fit level is where I’d like it to be.
On the weekends now, I am training with Mihigna Ki in preperation for our workshops on self defense, this really gives me a good workout, and tonight, I felt it proufoudly in my abs and my arms.
In this moment, I feel good, balanced and happy. I know enough of how to properly take care of and nurture this body of mine. And that, makes so much of a difference in every other aspect of my life.

When I was so overweight, I was fully aware of how it happened, and that I had done it to myself. I have always been nutrition aware, thanks to my adopted mother who raised us on real food, and real nutrition. But, I was on the verge of 150 pounds and standing five foot 1 inch tall. ICK.
When I’d wake up in the morning, my ankles would hurt, well, not my actual ankles, but the joints. I all around felt sluggish and blech. So I’d down coffee with creamer and move on. The caffine in the coffee acted like a drug (it is, a drug) that would numb out the pain of the swelling in my joints and so I was unware of the pain, or the extreme tiredness I was feeling. It had become extremely easy to deny my unhealthy and continue to put things in my body that were not right for my body. I’d literally drink coffee, all day long. Either from my coffee pot, poured into a mug to which I’d add hazelnut creamer; then later in the day I’d drive to town for Mcdonald’s hazelnut iced coffees. But all the consumption of coffee, and the high fructose corn syrup in the creamers, (and who the hell knows what else is in McD’s iced coffee brew) it made me CRAVE junk food, salty, greasy junk food. So, I’d eat some fries here, a hamburger there, (not from MCD’s) and the cycle was endless. More body fat, more misery, more pain.
My clothes stopped fitting, and I was miserable. I had to go buy new clothes, fat clothes, in sizes I’d never worn before. At my largest, I wore a size 10. I needed new clothes, but I hated shopping for them, because I’d only allow myself to shop for new clothes at thrift stores; however, nothing in the size 10 section was even appealing to me, it wasn’t my “style”. In fact what was my style, and my old size didn’t’ even fit me. That was my wake up call.
During all of this, I discovered this really great workout website that immediately made me want to start. It was like boot camp, and all done from home and was only using your own body weight. Now, the hostess of the show, was HOT. She had the body I wanted, ripped arms, ripped abs, the whole speel.
I am a natural cynic. If you’re flashing something in my face, you’d better be telling me honestly how it happened and that it is real. So, I was a bit leery, because this girl was FIT. I detest diet ads/exercise ads because they start out with THIN or fit people. NOT REALISTIC!! But, what she was doing on her site, was sooo exciting, and her freaking body spoke volumes, I WANTED that! So, I gave myself 30 days to do it, and if I saw no result, I’d know it was a pharse, but if I saw any change in that time, I’d believe it and even use it in my women’s group. ( I run health/wellness groups for women.)
Even though I have been very sick these past few days, I’ve been very happy. Mihigna Ki came home on Friday and it was lovely to be back together again.
I feel much better today, much better and I have a lot more vitality! I am also so excited because I’m losing so much fat. I have not done anything big, like workout; I’ve just been eating raw and being happy! I have been riding my bike, but not everyday and not at aerobic speeds! Just nice tooling around town with Turtle in tow!
I know it’s the raw foods, whenever I’m nourishing myself with real food, I feel so healthy and in balance and I have so much energy. The only down side to this is that I also need much less sleep. So I will wake up at 4:30 OR 5:30 every morning, which is nice too, becuase then I can have some time to myself before Turtle gets up. I like the early morning, it’s so full of clean, new, energy..
It’s also a testiment to how being happy makes you feel better and how being miserable makes you store fat and feel miserable, and probably not take very good care of yourself. It’s a lesson in balance.
I am off to start our day, we are going to look into what classes we can enroll turtle in and what other community activities there are. But I wanted to drop in to tell you all how very happy I am.
So first of all.. I’m really sorry dear readers, that I have not been on here in a while. Yes, I’ve been looking at your visits…and see that you are checking in to see what I’m doing. SO, let me tell you I swear I’ll give, at minimum every other day updates, and at most…. weekly posts.
Anyway… HUGE news in my life.
As of today, this morning.. our house is SOLD. We have moved into the new house which makes me SO VERY happy!!!!!
As many of my dedicated readers know, these last two years, but especially this last year, has been hellish for me; but as miserable as I was, I am THAT happy, content now.
Turtle is doing well, very happy, very adjusted with the move, she made a friend the first day we moved into the new house..big surprise. All things are going superbly.
I, have lost a lot of weight, and save the last three days or so, been high raw. The difference is so noticeable. My skin looks and feels better, my mood is more even and I have more energy. I have lost the puffy look I had in my face and neck and the scaley feeling is gone. (TMI? oh well, keeping it real people!) Much of it was due to the fact that I was so terribly dehydrated. So, eating high raw has put the water back into my system, flushed the puffies, and just generally made me feel more human. I’m thrilled to say that except for the move/closing..turtle has been high raw too!!! I”m sooo proud of her! She has not even complained! I think she is realizing how much better she feels. Experience..the BEST teacher!!!
I have a lot to process here, regarding the move, and the closing, and the new house..but I’m still in transition, so I want to be a bit settled more before I launch into all that. I’ll say a few things briefly. One, as stressful, heavy, and energyzapping as the house in Val was, the new house.. is the complete opposite! And know too, that it was not JUST the house..it was the community (or lack thereof) in Val that added to my misery. But there were spirits in the house that made it hard to live in too. Eventually, Ill write of those too.
In other news. Last weekend, Turtle and I attended Indian Day Wacipi in ST.Francis, I LOVE that community! For those who dont know.. I was the wacipi Princess, Miss Indian Day in 2001-2002, and I got married in 2002, or I’d have run again. I LOVED that crown..(the title) as it celebrates the victory of the Lakota at the battle of Greasy Grass, meaning.. it was the day that the Lakota Killed General Armstrong Custer!! LILILILILILILI!!!!!!!! So, they are sort of my hunka “home community.” The Wacipi was great, it was soo good to see old wacipi trail friends, and just be around people who are there for the same reasons, and to be with people who “get it”. Hey, look listen..no crickets!! Ha Ha!!!
It was funny though, cuz some people haven’t even seen Turtle since she was born, or since she was little, so getting to dance around with her next to me made my heart swell, and she cleaned up at the giveaway!! LOL.. the owale-sunka wakan ki tiwahe gave her a pendelton coat!! and all kinds of other gifts!!
I danced in a women’s traditional special but didnt’ go back on sunday, as I was busy packing up the house, and guess what I found out yesterday the fourth of July wacipi?! If I’d have danced that third day, I’d have WON!!!!! I saw one of the judges yesterday at the wacipi and asked her who won, and she told me the lady’s name.. and I asked all sheepish, if I even placed, she did a double take and then said, “You were SUPPOSED to get it! You had to dance that third day, and you would have won, where were you?” I was soo happy! There were 13 women there dancing with me, and four of them were elders!!! I was VERY honored!!!! Next time, come storm or flood, I’m staying!! haa haa!!!
I have more to say, but I have to run for now!! take care, and thanks for reading!!! MBB
So things are going really well for me. I have stayed raw, or at least High raw for a bit less than a week. It’s been interesting, this whole journey. In general i mean. I knew/know what was wrong this whole time, but it was a self fulfilling cycle that I. COULD. NOT. break out of. which frustrated me, and started my self loathing.
The good thing is I am getting the help I need, which alone makes everything else feel doable. Eating right helps so incredibly much, and I’ve worked out consistently for the last two days, and that makes everything better too. Just like everything bad can be a self fulfilling cycle, so can everything good. Just in the last two days, my skin is looking better, I’m off coffee, drinking roastaroma or mate’ in its place. I’d like to dump the creamer though, or at least replace it with coconut milk creamer, since the fake creamer is what will keep me fat, gassy or swollen.
It feels good to workout, and it feels good to see the results quickly. I have always been athletic and had muscles, and thankfully muscle has memory, so if I’m consistent, I will be looking hot again soon. I can already see it in my arms and my legs, and that feels really good. I’ve been proud of my muscle tone in those areas, so its nice to have it back. Now, just to get rid of the flub and get my abs back. Only this time, I’m really gonna make them RIPPED, ala Zuzanna. As far as the eating goes, I’m still having moments of laziness, not craving, but laziness, which I am able to walk myself through and remember how fat I am and unfit, so that pretty much kills it all right there.
I am a bit tired this time around, I think like all things, when you mess around, the coming back/detox can be a bit harsh. It’s funny too, because a part of this was also fueled by competition. My friend and I were talking about how we need to lose weight and get strong again, well she has started to lose some weight, so that made me get really competitive; and it gave me the fuel to stop screwing around. she may have a week on me for the weight loss, but I’ve got muscle memory, so I’m driven. And I have the perfect combo, which if I behave, and commit, will work wonders.
I’m tired, so I need to go to bed, but more on this later
So, at writing group tonight, a friend hugged me then looked down and said, “Are you still losing weight?”
I smiled and nodded pleased that it was obvious. Someone said,”But not too much, right?”
“How are you doing it? You have to tell us what your secret is?” there were various other comments along the same lines. As I drove home I mulled this over. They know what I’m doing, I told them months ago when i started it and when I saw the results. Im just thrilled to see that it really works which makes me want to shout it from the rooftops.
But on the heels of that thought is the thought that it’s not just what I eat, or what I do, it’s everything. Nothing is affected w/o affecting something else. I’m such living proof of that.
The bottom line is this. I do one of two things..and sometimes, not always, both of them together.
One, I eat raw food. I had always been interested in eating raw, but had gotten some conflicting information on it way back when I was investigating it after turtle was born. I dropped down to 103 after she was born, but it was from breastfeeding, and that was actually TOO thin for me. I’m not a waif. I’ve ALWAYS had boobs, and some shape to me. Though, much of my teens and 20s I spent trying to hide my boobs, so no one really saw my body under the baggy clothes, that I thought were hiding my big boobs.
Anway, I didn’t go with a raw lifestyle back when turtle was born because my research then said that it wasn’t healthy for a nursing mother and baby. now, years later, i see this was completely inaccurate. Anway, so this year i started looking into it more again, and just in three years the information bubble on raw food exploded!! The biggest thing for success on teh raw food way of life is get excellent recipes!!! seriously! My first two raw food books were: the raw food revolution diet and The everything raw food recipe book. It garnered a tepid response from us. I felt like the two books repeated recipes, but also, I needed a book that was going to satisfy my born and bred meat and potatoes husband, if I was truly going to convert him. Because I’m NOT one who believes in cooking seperate meals for everyone in the family. One, Im too damn lazy and selfish with my tine to be doing that. and two, as my old cafe boss said: “this aint burger king, you get it my way, or not at all.”
Now, I did use some recipes from both of them, but the RFRD, was heavy on smoothies, and soups, and after trying them, I was NOT a fan of them. I don’t want to DRINK my meals, I’m not convalescing! So, I started searching the internet for recipes, and found a plehora..and the ”gurus” of the raw food movement. Now, if you know me at all, you know that I’m NOT a guru follower, in fact, if a herd of people are following someone, I’ll sure as hell take the opposite direction and as quickly as possible. I don’t chase dangling carrots, you dangle a carrot in my face, I’ll throw it away from me, and go dig up my own. And also, you know that for me to respect anyone, they have not only talk about whatever they are “experts” on, but they have to live it, and be radiating it from within. In my research, I found such people. I found Ani Phyo, who I feel, from what I have seen, it the “mother” of this raw food lifestyle. Because she grew up with it, walked away from it, saw the result and then returned fully. So, I got her book, and read it cover to cover, found her website, bookmarked her blog and would talk to her if I was able to!!! I loved her book, it was colorful, engaging and the recipes were appetizing. I also bought two other books with hers. They were Raw food, quick and easy and Alive in 5: raw gourmet food in under five minutes. Both of them are wonderful fabulous books. and ones I use repeatedly. However, I must say that Alive in 5, is misleading. Every recipe I’ve made from that book, is NOT done in five minutes. Btu that is okay, because I’m so excited about the food i’m making, it doesn’t bother me and the end result is YUMMO!!!
I guess I should also say here, that I’m lazy. I really am. I have to truly be passionate about something to really go after it. Like, most of the raw food diet uses dehydrated food, and soaking and all of that..but I’m just too damn lazy for any of it. I eat my nuts raw..NOT soaked, save if I’m gonna use them to make nut milk or a granola recipe. The literature says that soaking then dehydrating the nuts helps you digest them better, but I have not had any ill effects from not soaking and then dehydrating my nuts. I also am very practical, (and cynical) and I want to know why I would want to take dry nuts, soak them, just to turn around and dry them again AND then, eat them? If someone can come convince me as to why this is better, I may consider it. but for now, I’m taking my organic, raw nuts and eating them as I please.
This is a long drawn out story to tell you that the majority of how I lost 8 pounds (of 140) I had gained from my iced coffee obsession, was through the raw food diet. And I wasn’t fanatical, I just mostly ate raw food, that was delicious and fun because of some really amazing recipes. I still eat meat, (usually once a month around my moon time) and will always eat meat. This is because i rarely, if at all eat beef. My meat comes from deer, buffalo, turkey and chicken. mostly all wild caught, via my husband. i don’t like the taste of beef, and have a traumatic beef story that changed my beef eating life forever. (will tell that one on another day)
Geez, now it’s late and I’m boring myself.
