Are you meat eater? If yes, what is your favourite kind of meat? A few months ago, I made the decision to stop eating fresh pork because of a story and photograph that I saw on Facebook about a live worm being extracted from a man’s head. It was thought or maybe it might be better to say alleged that the worm – and a large one at that – got there from his eating under-cooked pork. So for months that brand of ‘meat’ has not passed my lips – except in the form of cured and then baked pork.
My daughter and I were in the grocery store a couple of nights ago and as we walked by the meat section, I again declared that becoming a vegetarian is increasingly appealing to me for several reasons. The main thing is that my tolerance for all kinds of meat and poultry is reducing daily. However, today’s Tuesday Thought© has less to do with cooking but more about doing what you have to do when there are changes to be made in your life.
Change is a big topic for me since the beginning of 2016. It was not a deliberate attempt on my part for ‘change’ to be the frequent theme of posts on this blog. Yet, it has become that and I am going with the flow, as the saying goes. Tuesday Thought© is a two to five minutes video that I make and post here, on YouTube as well as on my Facebook page. In these videos, a Jamaican proverb or saying is highlighted and explained. Did you catch “Wheel and Come Again” from last week? You can watch that here. The background and discussion on it can be read here.
Raw Meat And Change
This week’s Thought touches on the issue of change and another way to handle it. Actually, today’s post is a lot later than normal as I was busy doing exactly what the proverb states:
“Wen man hab raw meat him find fiyah!” Translation: “When a person has raw meat, he finds fire.”
This proverb is personally relevant to me at this time – one that is filled with changes. As I shared before, I recently decided to and moved into a new place. Soon after making that decision, my employer informed me that my position was being terminated due to the economic downturn here in Alberta. There are always options and some of the many that faced me was to curl up and die, reverse my plans to move or keep going at full speed.
Realising that I had “raw meat,” meaning challenges to either rise up to or complain about, I chose to find “fire.” Watch this Tuesday Thought© for the discussion and share with me what kind of “meat” you have on your life’s kitchen counter and how you plan to deal with it – BBQ, baked or sautéed?
