About Me

+++Enter At Your Own Risk+++ At the gentle nudging (I said gentle y'all) of a few friends, I have started these blogs in order to share my culinary goings-on and daily misadventures through my own brand of humor (ok, sarcasm). I just write about stuff! At 50, I have learned that living has gotten in the way of life - and I am going to blaze my own personal trail to fun (hopefully)! If it is feminine, great. If it is not, so much the better! Hopefully fun that does not land me in jail............

In Defense of Food

I actually recommend this book by Michael Pollan. It is not often I recommend books, so listen up.

Quotes from Mr. Pollan's book that you should consider:

"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." He doesn't say go vegan. He is reasonable.

"Don't eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn't recognize as food." Meaning, back in the day, there were not a lot of fancy "non-food" food ingredients.

"Don't eat anything incapable of rotting." Hummmm, just agree'n.

"The shared meal elevates eating from a mechanical process of fueling the body to a ritual of family and community, from the mere animal biology to an act of culture." This is a time to celebrate the food and time together. To rejoice in the bounty and the camaraderie.

"So that's us: processed corn, walking." I love corn, but, not in EVERYTHING!
