“If you go slowly enough, six or seven months is an eternity—if you let it be—if you forget old things, and learn new ones. Even a week can last forever.”
Rick Bass, Winter

"In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer."

Day 17: A (Converted) Carnivore's Christmas, Part One

A how-to guide:

1.  Go to one of your nearby favorite farms with your family.

2.  While serious decisions need to be made, visit the pigs.
3.  Tell Farmer Kassandra what you are craving.  She will lead you to her lair, the meat locker.

4.  While your foodie son decides on a lamb shoulder, visit Christmas Eve Dinner's extended family and their pals, the goats.

5.  Urge Foodie Son and his father to point out their choices on film
6.  Write a check, gather your husband, son, and sister, and drive home.

7.  While unloading the food onto the kitchen counter, smile with the memory of your two decades as a quasi-vegetarian, and remind yourself that sometimes change is good, especially when you have a foodie in the family.
