Food For Thought

I think I have a new business idea. Check this out: dinner therapy. Like dinner theater, except instead of watching a play or a crappy lounge singer while you eat, you’re pouring out your feelings to a licensed therapist in a cozy, intimate restaurant booth. Great idea, right? I know! The name could be Food … Continue reading

Stop the Presses! I Mean, Don’t Stop the Presses!

I’m freaking out, everybody! ….as opposed to, “I’m freaking out everybody!” Note the importance of a well-placed comma, as opposed to the errant comma I left in my Freshly Pressed post, “Oh, Please Do Tell Me About What You’re Not Selling.” Very similar to the more familiar, “Let’s eat, Grandpa,” vs. “Let’s eat Grandpa” example. … Continue reading

Call the Doctor–I Feel Fine

The past few days I have been traipsing through foreign territory. In other words, I’ve been in an unflappable, go-with-the-flow, relaxed and happy mood.

Other than that, … Continue reading

Debriefing on Vegging Out, Day 1

I’m not sure how often I’ll be doing food confessions. Probably not all the time because I’d like to keep some readers if I can. However, since this was the big kickoff, here’s the rundown on what I lived on today: This morning I had coffee with TJ’s soy creamer and sugar, then some whole-wheat … Continue reading

Going Cold Tofurky

September 1 is this Saturday. I LOVE September, mainly because it means the relentless scorching hell that is August is finally over. Like a lot of people, I always want to make a fresh start when the “-ember” months arrive. The heat fatigue starts to lift and there’s an exhilarating crispness in each morning that … Continue reading
