Whole Foods

I guess I haven't ranted here about the new Whole Foods. For n-months (I believe n >= 24), there has been talk of a Whole Foods opening up. It did. Bread & Circus all over.

It means good, high quality meat selection (happy cow, happy chicken), organic veggies, and all those obscure bits of the boomer-hippy-yuppy-vegan culture I grew up with. Dinner last night was Banana Chips, for example.

While frolicking there, I also decided to give my Pressure cooker a try. My uncle the foodie (and his family) gave me a really beautiful one as a graduation present. I've had it almost two months, and never opened it. Silly me. They are a lot of fun... and the whole purpose is to cook food faster. I like the kind of things they cook well (stews, risottos, etc). And I had a craving for the stew style pork chop (sauerkraut, potatoes, etc)... so I cooked one. Took <20 minutes to prepare and cook a pair of beautiful >1" thick loin chops (could, of course, only eat one). Pressure cookers rock.

Hello Bandwidth, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because addiction softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the Vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the speed of broadband.
