Caveman Hang Overs

Has anyone else on the caveman diet noticed that alcohol has a much more profound effect?

Maybe it's because I simply don't drink as much these days (although, I've never really been a big drinker) when I do have a couple of drinks I always have a hangover.

I had two drinks last night and although I did not feel any more inebriated than two drinks usually makes me feel, but this morning I feel far worse!

If for no other reason, drinking less might be a good idea just to feel better.

The Mystery of the Milk Fat is Solved!

You may recall that I was surprised last week when I noted that the half-and-half at my office had LESS saturated fat than whole milk.  Well, prompted by Monica who was similarly mystified by this revelation I went back to the fridge this morning to carefully compare the labels.

No, it's definitely true.  Half-and-half, which, I suspect, does not require hyphens, does have less saturated fat per serving than our whole milk.

PER SERVING.

Lo and behold, guess how much a serving of whole milk is.  One cup.

Guess how much a serving of half and half is.  Two.  TWO TABLESPOONS.

I poured myself a whole glass just to spite the FDA and it is delicious.

Butternut Squash Warning

So, I am currently in the process of making  recipe.  I put too much butter and cream in it and so it's a little more watery than I would like.

But I wanted to give my readers a warning about this recipe.  I had never tasted plain heavy cream before and I tasted it this evening and I discovered that the key ingredient in heavy cream is pure China White.  That's right.  Heroin.

This stuff is so good.  I dumped all of my cream into the squash because I was scared that my roommates would find me face down in the middle of our kitchen beyond all help with an empty carton of the stuff the only clue to my untimely end.

It's that good.

Oh!  And add butter?   And squash?  And... well, let me just recommend that you make sure the mixture isn't hot enough to burn you when you dive in.

Update: The meatloaf is also SUPER yummy.  I added salt and pepper to the recipe because it seemed wrong to leave it out.
