Arrrre Yoooou Okkkkay?
The big joke on all of our vacations is my goofy brother and his cousin re-enacting Baywatch and yelling “are you okay”. It sounds really dumb but it’s (embarrassingly) funny while they do it.
Are you okay?!
Get him a stretcher!!!
Everyone looks so young in these pictures!!!
Anyway, I’m an actual lifeguard now so I can legitimately ask people if they’re okay. I thought I would share. 😉
My dad cooked dinner tonight, and it was a shellfish extravaganza!
Action shot of some plating.
Pinot garlic clams. These were SO good!
All together now…
Look at that cute little crawfish peeking out!
I was on winter break this week, but because I was so busy I didn’t get very far on school work. Need to catch up tonight and tomorrow!!
I’m reading Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food for a rhetorical analysis final report. My job is to refute his argument! I think a lot of what he says is legitimate, but there are some things that drive me crazy in this book. He keeps on saying “you”, in the context of “you eat 20% of your calories from refined sugar” or “you are confused about how to eat.” Excuse me Mike, but I don’t eat 20% sugar and I’m not confused about how to eat, thank you very much.
Another thing that bothers me is his references to non-westernized cultures and how they don’t need dentists. Apparently if you don’t eat white flour you don’t have crooked teeth or get cavities. Why am I picturing our ancestors toothless then?
Oh yah, because they were.
Other than that it’s a really interesting book and I think I’ll enjoy the project. He really hates food scientists! I bet we would get along famously. 😉
Did anyone else read this book? Thoughts? Opinions? Is there room to refute his argument?
I’ll leave you with a tea review. (I updated the recipes, concoctions and reviews page! Woohoo!) Monday is more prolotherapy and I really don’t want to go. Another week of stinky workouts isn’t my idea of fun.
