Darlings! As you experiment and expand on your cannabis knowledge, I’m sure there’ll come a day when you have a little too much fun. Maybe you’re trying out an edibles recipe and seem to have overindulged, or maybe your pal comes over with a party joint – either way, sometimes the next day you can experience what I call the PotOver. Kinda like a hangover but with cannabis. Unlike a hangover you won’t feel like you have the flu, nor will you want to die, but the front of your brain might feel a little ‘soggy’. You might want to stay in bed, or consume large amounts of cold mac ‘n cheese, or give yourself a rub down in the shower with a coffee scrub – whatever works! The PotOver happens, and luckily for us cannabis lovers it’s no big deal. Think cool shower, hot tea, maybe some semi-vigorous exercise….basically whatever you think will help you feel better with no bad effects, do that. Again, the PotOver is no big deal but can be weird, so don’t worry, just take care of you!
As I was sitting through a baseball game the other night I was thanking cannabis in my head. I’ve found that with the great green medicine not only am I healthier but I’m muuuuuuch more calm. And I can be with the sports loving family and not get cranky about it. Now I know a lot of people don’t have the racing mind/compulsive energy problem, but for those of us who have a fast motor, learning how to slow it down can be a lifelong challenge. I guess that’s why before I found cannabis Xanax was kind of my friend….tho I never felt healed. I have to say Cannabis has gotten me healthy AND helped me survive boring sports. Again and always, YAY pot!!!!
Welcome to my new and improved website! I want to share some pics with you from a couple recent classes so you can see how fun they are. I’m so very thankful to get to help you learn how to cook; the look on someone’s face when their pain disappears or when they can finally sleep in priceless. Huge thanks for letting me help, and I hope you get some good stuff from this new website too. Onward citizens!
WILD MUSHROOM TOASTS
These wild ‘shrooms are so freakin’ delicious that you might not need any other
food. I love them as an appetizer, and the sauté can be used a lot of ways. To
serve four, you’ll need:
2 Tb. olive oil
3-4 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 Lb. mixed wild mushrooms (I love miitake, cremini, and oyster)
½ c. basil leaves, chiffonade
1 small branch rosemary
¼ C. balsamic vinegar
½ C. red wine
Italian parsley, chopped for garnish
Heat the olive oil over medium heat, and then add the garlic, stirring for about a
minute till it picks up some color. Add the ‘shrooms and sauté for about 5
minutes, then lower the heat, add the basil and rosemary, and simmer 5 minutes
more. Add the vinegar and wine and simmer about 5 more minutes or until the
juices have reduced. Serve with good bread and olive oil, or serve on toasted
bread – either way, ‘shroom heaven!!
SUN DRIED TOMATO JAM
This is a really great thing to have around for impromptu parties; it lasts in the
fridge and is lovely on crostini.
8 oz. oil-packed sun dried tomatoes, chopped and drained, oil saved
½ onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tb. sugar
¼ C. red wine vinegar
1 C. water
¼ C. chicken broth
1 tsp. thyme
salt and pepper to taste
Cook tomatoes, 2 Tb. of the tomato oil, onion and garlic till onions are soft, about
5 to 7 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil, then reduce heat
to low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Uncover and simmer for about 10 to 15
minutes more or until it has the jam consistency you like. SO good with goat
cheese and bread!!
