 Not at all, what you shared is real life, gut checks , and feelings. Best buddies and the grief felt when they pass need no explaining nor apologies as far as I am concerned. Your experience was a gentle reminder to me to make sure that i don't take my best buddy for granted and to relish in the time we share. Your new family members have some big paws to fill. Hope they are up to it and by the same token, they're dogs!!!, they always do their best. It is the only way...
My general rule of thumb regarding my own language is that if I wouldn't say it in the dining room in front of guests, then I don't say it here.¸.·´¯`·.¸¸><((((º> ¸.·´¯`·.¸¸><((((º>¸.·´¯`·.¸¸><((((º>¸.·´¯`·.¸¸><((((º>><((((º> ¸.·´¯`·.¸¸><((((º>¸.·´¯`·.¸¸><((((º>¸.·´¯`·.¸¸><((((º>

I made a loose adaptation of kuku paka (coconut chicken). It is a Kenyan curry dish.   I used chicken thighs that I marinated in ginger, garlic, bird's eye chilies, and lemon juice.   For the sauce, I put heirloom tomato, onion, bird's eye chilies, fresh coconut and toasted cumin into a blender and made a paste which I sauteed until darkened and thickened.   Added chicken and sauteed briefly, lidded and turned heat to low for about 10.

 I was at the grocery store yesterday and saw coconut milk. I flashed on this thread and got nosy. I picked up several cans  to look at ingredients. Some brands list guar gum as an ingredient.
