The boy didn’t like it, but my wife did. I’ll be updating the recipe for next time.
It’s fancy potato chips at the bottom, then lettuce, then corned beef, then sauerkraut, then swiss cheese, then thousand island dressing. I may heat the cheese next time so it’s more melty–the residual heat from the meat and kraut didn’t do it–but overall it was pretty good. Not great, but pretty good.
Best in small doses, I think.
Grind pork for sausage
Make GF cornbread for stuffing
sweat onion and celery for stuffing
Make sweet potato pie
Make flavored cream cheese
Make apple pie (assigned to wife and kid)
Make cranberry sauce.
The rest I’ll manage on the day.

I’ve never had a pizza stone, but I have several pizza screens. I love them and would never switch to a stone. And I left “sandwich maker” untouched but I do have a George Foreman.
Anyway, my breadmaker was one of the first ever. My mom bought it off the TV and gave it to me, and it didn’t work very well.
My last (maybe) day of the raw veg only “fast” and I just took a very hot, long shower.
Normally that would trigger a massive hive outbreak and unbearable itchiness, but today I only have the ugly red welts. I seriously have more spots than a cheetah.
However, the itching is almost non-existent. I call that progress, but I don’t know if it means I should continue on or not. I’ll discuss it with my wife later.
I’m part way through the second day of my “unjuice fast,” in which I partake of a juice fast that focuses on ingesting large amounts of green veg and nothing else, except without actually juicing them. Instead, I’m setting a large bowl of uncooked, undressed greens beside me and chowing down.
Yes, it’s been difficult. (Details, and some digestive TMI, behind the cut) more »
