a second non-knitting food-related post. I guess it's because I'm trying to eat more intensely. I need to weigh less, but I love food and refuse to give it up or see it as the enemy. Instead, I'm trying to get MORE pleasure from less food with the hope that I will eat fewer calories. I suppose I should eat nothing but poached chicken breasts and celery broth, but that's not how I want to go.
Of course, I am knitting indiscriminately--or fiber-ing indiscriminately--buying, dyeing, knitting, dreaming. It'd be great if I could sublimate all my eating desires towards yarn activities. And then if I could sublimate the food-sublimated-yarn activities to actual physical activities. But let's not get crazy. Wait--does watching Olympics burn calories?
So, a food thing. This is my favorite summer lunch in variations. All include pain au levain from Bread Alone. All include farmers' market tomatoes: heirloom or cherry. Finally, each has ricotta. Sometimes sheep, sometimes cow. Ooh, and the last picture features ripe peach on one. Then a little dash of sea salt, olive oil, or honey as one sees fit.
It does make me happy. So sue me.
