Paleo Clam Chowder Recipe

So, I have a few new favorite things to do regarding recipes:
  • find Paleo recipes and try them
  • take recipes and attempt to make them Paleo
(Notice a trend there?)  As you've probably seen in very recent posts - since I don't have many posts to begin with - I love PaleOMG. Juli is hilarious and really knows her way around the kitchen. I guarantee that if you cook any of her (Paleo!) recipes, you will be a happy person. 

I'm trying to focus on becoming more and more Paleo. To learn more about Paleo, or "primal" eating, check out Mark's Daily Apple. And don't get too sucked in to surfing his site, as I often do. Make sure to come back here and check out my super awesome yummy easy one-pot Paleo Clam Chowder!!!

It's A Great Day to Be Alive!

Well, I fell off the face of the Earth for a bit.  Not by choice - I contracted some weird virus and had to go to the hospital from Dec. 3 - 8. I had never been admitted to the hospital before, minus being born, of course. All in all, it was NOT a fun experience. I must say though, I was impressed with the staff. I felt very cared for the entire time I was there. So, that part was a plus.

Marcos and I celebrate two anniversaries. Anniversary #1 is December 1st.  On Dec. 1st (Saturday), we spent the day staining our pool deck (NOT to celebrate, mind you!).  Then we went out to dinner (this is the celebration part).  I noticed at dinner that the lymph node just under my left jaw was swollen. I mentally noted to take it easy the next day to avoid a cold or any other kind of sickness.  I do a pretty nice job of paying attention to my body's signs, and so I don't usually get sick.
