High on high I stand, Gazing down to see
The endless garden awaiting me!

Red bloometh the rose of conviction!
And Red bloometh the rose of hate!
Yes, Red bloometh the rose of conquest!
Only blood will sate!

And the war it wageth on!
The storm it rageth on!
The bold ever fight on!
Their lives echo in song!

Hah!

All, like snow, they fall,
Petals plucked and strewn,
Yet from their seeds grow this war anew!

Blood trickling down from my fullers!
And blood trickling down from mine hands!
Yes, Blood trickling down to Hydaelyn!
Until I alone stand!

And the war still wageth on!
The storm still rageth on!
The bold blindly march on!
Their lives lost in a song!

I would have liked to do more than just these 4, but there’s just… so many primals now….

Watermelon Coconut Cooler

When we were in Las Vegas a few weeks ago, one of the places Big-O kept eying was a juice bar located on the casino floor of our hotel. Every time we passed it, he would look longingly at the cold-pressed juice concoctions in the refrigerated case, and tug my arm. Eventually, I relented, and we joined the queue of sleep-deprived adults in line for the the “Back to Normal” and “Hangover Be Gone” remedy cleanses.

My ten-year-old (who, for the record, was not hung over) opted instead for a bottle of “Aloha Sunrise,” a blend of watermelon, coconut water, lemon juice, and salt. But then, I saw the sticker price on a single-serving bottle: $11.00.

Seriously?

By then, we were at the front of the line, and Big-O already had a big anticipatory smile on his face, so I pulled out my wallet. And to be honest, the beverage was pretty darned refreshing. But I knew I could recreate it at home for a fraction of the price—and without the accompanying whiff of desperation and cigarette smoke perfuming the air.

And I did!

This watermelon cooler is perfect for your summertime parties—just blend it ahead of time, and it’ll keep in the fridge for up to two days. When it’s time to serve it, shake well and pour over ice!

Episode 10: Essential Cooking Tools

Stocking up your kitchen for the very first time? Or just sick and tired of your cruddy old culinary tools, like that sad-looking plastic spatula with the melted front edge? Well, it’s time to level up! 

Having the right cooking implements on hand can mean the difference between having dinner ready in a flash and being frustrated and defeated in the kitchen. In this episode we tell you all about our favorite culinary essentials. And don’t you worry your pretty little head—we won’t recommend anything crazy-expensive or any one-trick ponies that’ll clutter your countertop. We won’t even suggest any items that need to be plugged into an electrical socket. So listen in, and I’ll let you know which kitchen tools this luddite can’t live without!

What We Ate:

After returning home from our Maui vacation, one of the first things on my to-do list was to stock up our fridge and pantry. I started by heading over to Belcampo Meat Company—our local butcher shop—to stock up on meat. 

My order included short ribs, a big pork butt, pastured eggs, and lots of ground beef. Although well-raised meat can be expensive, I try to stick to stuff that costs less than ten bucks a pound. Cheap cuts and ground beef definitely help to stretch our food budget. And after splurging on a lot of restaurant meals while on vacation, we definitely scaled back this week.  

Because I was just getting back into the groove of things, I cooked a lot of garbage stir fries this week with the ground beef from Belcampo. In fact, for four days in a row, I made garbage stir fry for our garbage-loving family. Yes, I know that the name of the dish sounds grody and terrible, but the kids can attest that it’s trash-tastically delicious. Besides, isn’t it always better to under-promise with a yucky name, and then over-deliver with a yummy dinner?

Main Course:

For years, I was a kitchen gadget hoarder. If you have our cookbook or read my old Paleo Eats posts, you probably know that I often use a number of appliances and tools to get dinner ready, including an Instant Pot, a slow cooker, a food processor, a super-charged Vitamix blender, a stick blender, and even our trusty countertop toaster oven.  Sometimes, I use all of those things to prep a single meal.
