I'm not sure what's funnier - God having a Twitter account or Him following @JustinBieber.

Paleo Breakfast cookies

The recipe came from Gluten-Free On A Shoestring. Gluten-free and dairy-free!

Out of necessity, I made some substitutions. The weather was cold and the roads a bit icy yesterday, so I chose to go to local supermarkets rather than a health food store. I couldn't find coconut palm sugar so used regular sugar. I couldn't find pumpkin seeds so I substituted unsalted sunflower seeds. I forgot to put vegetable shortening on my list, so I used coconut oil.

And I should've checked to see if I had honey - I don't! I only discovered that halfway through baking tonight. I used maple syrup with a squirt of molasses and two squirts of corn syrup.

I tried one tonight - yummy!

A picture of a picture I found in my files. I was looking for pictures of my father in uniform and found this. I think this would be 1971 or 1972.

Post-op life. With silly gifs.

... I've been thinking I need to start cutting out sugar again. I did it once, years ago, but it crept back in. Because sugar is magical and sparkly.

Now, in my post-op life without ovaries ... I'm starting to see a correlation between eating too much chocolate and getting a migraine.
