When she was 12, we bought a little farm to indulge her obsession with animals. When she was 16, she got a vending contract with a fair that pulls over 2 million customers each season.

From there, everything has just taken off. It is overwhelming at time, because we raise and breed the animals as well as make every product from scratch. We do every single thing ourselves. Well, last weekend, my sister came out to help me sell, and that was a real treat to see someone else hawking for a change!

If anyone has a Facebook page, search for Dancing Dog Dairy. There are tons of cool pictures on her page.

It all has a sort of fated feeling about it because my sister and I grew up going to Renaissance Festivals with our dad who was "The King of the Gypsies". Unfortunately, he passed away before seeing his oldest grandchild following in his footsteps, but I feel his presence so strongly every time I step back in time for a weekend.

Shoot. I'd better put down this phone and go feed hungry animals. Have a great day everyone!
That is so awesome! The company name is very cool too. Love the goat with the pirate hat lol

Yay zgirl, glad you're liking the shakes! Was thinking about trying them with coffee as well.

Red, Did you say something about leaving pork out of the fridge a while before you cook it?

The spleen is there but lots of critical organs are under the rib cage. You're right about not taking any more of that stuff.

Yes. Long enough to get the chill off of it. I take it out of the package, rinse the meat off and set it on a plate of paper towels and pat dry if needed. I usually season at least one side of the meat then too. Then I set it in the microwave out of the way and get the other stuff I'm cooking ready. As little as 10 mins or as much as 30 mins or so. Depends on how thick the pork is. But I always cook pork thoroughly. Ugh, undercooked pork is no friend to man or beast.

I usually eat between 1800-2000. And on my weekly weigh-in, my weight actually went up 0.7 pounds! I'm not worried about the little bounce, but I was a little surprised. Nothing else changed with exercise or anything, just the low calories for a few days. Has anyone else experienced this before?
Too much of a caloric deficit does funky things to the metabolism.

A few months ago when I was eating 1400 to 1500 I would stall or bump up for days on end. I finally got going in a steady downward direction when I upped my calories.

Man as much as I like fried cabbage, lightly boiled cabbage is so good. The last few days I've been using maybe a cup or so of water, 2 bouillon cubes, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to cook it and then I drink the delicious broth to get my bouillon/salt in for the day.

Thanks for the input, Cheryl and Darin. It's crazy how touchy all these systems are... too many calories = bad, too few calories = bad; too much sleep = bad, too little sleep = bad; too much exercise = bad, too little exercise = bad... Goldilocks had it right! And by the way, Cheryl ...

Your insomnia probably caused some corisol issues too zgirl. Low calories cause cortisol issues. Between the two I imagine your cortisol was sky high.

Deb, I've never had it with water, but I imagine its still good. I use Silk vanilla almond milk, unsweetened. 30 calories a cup. Its my favorite.
Mizzcase, I had my first try with ON Chocolate Supreme this morning. I used a little water and a little heavy cream and mixed it up to pudding consistency. I had that for breakfast and with my coffee with CO and HWC, I was way full right up til lunch time. I find I can tolerate the flavor of the protein powder a lot better if it is not whey based. I really dislike whey protein taste and this is a lot better. I feel this will be a regular item in my pantry from now on. I so glad you mentioned it, thanks so much for that.

Deb, google "casein protein pudding".. I've read about it alot but do not have the patience to stand there mixing it for 10-15 minutes. People like to freeze it and it takes on the consistency of ice cream.

Hey, have you been sneaking into my kitchen lately? Is that why I couldn't find my melitta filter for the last 12 hours? How did you bring it back without me noticing? I searched even the stinky organic garbage bag, thinking I had thrown it out....turned out to be in the onion bin under the sink...

Hubby and I are going to a retreat all weekend. At first I thought it was canceled, asmy Aunt couldn't fly out of the midwest b/c of the snow storms to come care for our kiddos. Thankful for good friends to come hold our fort down over the weekend to help out. :-)

Now here's to hoping I can stay on top of my eating choices while away from home. I'm packing my coconut butter truffles to ward off hunger, as that's when I'll cave and eat something I shouldn't! Also bringing my own cream for coffee and some hardboiled eggs.

See you all back on Sunday night.

Actually, I've been using my cone filter that was built to use with a thermos. I make about 20 oz of coffee at one time straight into the 24oz thermos I have.

I really like doing it that way since I can shake it up before pouring myself some to keep the CO incorporated.

I was supposed to mix it for 10-15 minutes? I stirred it with a little whisk to break up the lumps a bit let it sit about 5 minutes total. This was one scoop of the PP and about 1/4 cup cream and 1/4 water.

Mine thickened up right away and I ate it right away too, I can't imagine mixing it for 15 minutes

Now putting the pudding in the freezer makes me think chocolate popsicles! I could definitely do that

I decided to try an experiment this morning and ate a cream cheese fat bomb for breakfast, along with my coffee, almond milk, and coconut oil (312 cal, 32 g fat, 4 g carb, 5 g protein).

I wanted to see if a high fat/low protein meal would keep me satiated longer. Nope! I don't know if it was the lack of protein or not enough calories. I lasted about 3 hours before I gave in to hunger, and ate 2 eggs over easy cooked in butter with 2 turkey sausage patties. 2nd breakfast was 336 cal, 1 g carb, 26 g fat, and 24 g protein.

Man I hope my Walmart carries it. I may ask them if they can get some in if they don't. I bought some amish butter at the produce place but it had hardly any info on it and I don't know much about it. But boy it was good.

Usually all I have for breakfast is about 700 calories of fat. That will tide me over for 6 to even 10 hours. But I usually eat well before that so I can get all of my calories and grams in for the day without having to eat too late (because I really enjoy not eating late like I used to when I was a fat guy).

I starve in the mornings to. When I was doing LF I starved alot worse.
CO helps some but I am still hungry. I was trying to skip breakfast but I got sick feeling so I had to go back to eating a little something. Been trying to have egg yolks and 2 strips of bacon.

Here is the pic I snapped of it at the store.

It is expensive compared to regular butter. 8oz for $2.18. And now that I think about it, I am not sure that this store has the unsalted version.
