Well, Tuesday night I fought thru the drifts in our driveway and drove an hour to get to hear Sally Fallon Morell speak on the Oiling of America at St. Vincints College in Latrobe, PA. I was so glad we braved the weather to go. It was the first time I got to hear her speak. It is amazing how we have all been decieved and on such an enormous level!
I must say though, that my 14 year old daughter, Cheyenne, laughed at me and said she has never seen me remotely starstruck in her life and didn't think it could happen to her mom! Something about me knowing what page number a particular quote from Sally was within the Nourishing Traditions cookbook. (129). Cheyenne told me I was like a Starwars geek at a Starwars convention, only it was Sally Fallon. (Who is fearlessly leading us in our own war!) I took a half gallon of milk to give to Sally since she is a huge advocate of raw milk. I asked her if she would like it and she said she'd have a glass right then. (She can't take raw milk on a plane, so she can't take her drink of choice with her.) Isn't that silly? Can't take raw milk on a plane? Anyway, as my friend Nancy, Cheyenne and I headed home, I would randomly exclaim, "Sally Fallon drank MY milk!!" Ok, ok, so I am a Wise Traditions geek. I even told Sally it was "Tiger Baby milk since the two cows it was from are named 'Tiger' and 'Baby'.
If you haven't bought the Nourishing Traditions Cookbook. You should!
