Can’t we just cook the narcissists?

    Kim Saeed February 22, 2014

    Sounds like a great plan! In fact, I’m imagining a great tartare recipe 🙂

      bettylaluna February 22, 2014

      Hahaha! Nah, nothing fancy…maybe just snake food…

        Kim Saeed February 22, 2014

        Well, there was a good reason for the tartare idea…you know, the whole “finely chopped and served raw” bit 😀

          bettylaluna February 22, 2014

          I can see your point Kim…but you know…giving them the finger today is too much work…wasting energy finely chopping them or the thought of having to sanitize a food processor is too much…salt is cheap…big pot, boiling water and just a dash of salt…for flavoring…it’s the least we could do given we’re offering the snakes a downgrade from rats…hehe

          😀 great point…

          bettylaluna February 22, 2014

          Hahaha! 🙂

Sounds delicious. My hormonal balance is definitely off, now I know why and how to help it. Thank you. 🙂

    Kim Saeed February 21, 2014

    You’re welcome, Teela 🙂

    I’m still trying to get my body back to “normal”, after two years! Getting there 😉

Not fair: my mouth is watering and I haven’t even had breakfast yet!

    Ha ha! I know, my mouth is watering, too 🙂 Might have to make a special trip to the store!
