really liked it
Read from March 26 to April 20, 2011

Update: Ooooh. Recipes! Automatic four stars!

I kind of can't believe I'm reading instead of using it as kindling for burning my recyclable plastics but it was sitting there on the library shelf and before I knew what was happening I was attacked by a pack of ninjas. In the chaos of the ensuing ninja bloodbath the book ended up in my bag. I was feeling peckish by the time I got home so the subject of food, even heavily spiked with all manner of eco-nonsense, appealed to me and I started reading. So far, so silly but I hear there are meal plans. I love meal plans. I never follow them due to the absolute dearth of cookies on any meal plan I've ever seen but I like the idea that I could eat 6 almonds and a cashew for a snack. I let my mind imagine the kind of person who would find this to be a satisfying mid-afternoon nibble and how if I saw them I would say, "Do you really NEED that cashew, Chubby? Don't make me report you to People for the Ethical Treatment of Trousers." And yes, I was up really late last night and really early this morning.
