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

        1. Kim Saeed

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

          1. 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

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

      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!
