It's citrus season; you deserve some key lime pie!  

A short list this week. But there are some really great reads in there. 

 

Antibiotics in farming and bottled water make the Guardian’s list of “five ethical stories that will define the next decade”

 

 

Eating insects may not be in the list above, but here’s a great Q&A with someone who’s putting crickets in bitters. These guys prove that design is absolutely essential to sustainability. It’s like a protein shake, but with a cocktail shaker instead of a blender!!! Disclaimer, I actually have no idea how much protein would remain after tincturing.

 

 

The Science of Herbs with the food science master himself; McGee FTW every time.

 

 

An overview of the most hipster food scandal ever (or so far, I guess, depending on your perspective).

 

 

This is (probably) the last time I will point out how “detoxing” and “fasting” are dumb new year's resolutions.

 

 

A new fast casual restaurant in DC is making lunch bowls focused on hummus.

 

 

Fredericksburg gets one step closer to a second craft brewery downtown with this public hearing.

 

 

Some genius subs for fresh tomatoes in wintertime. Cucumber salad with asian pear or mango, sign me up!

I used my first batch of sprouted things AKA my "new years resolution" last night. Baked chicken "alfredo" with sprouted lentils and chickpeas over rice and baby kale. Nomnom. You can read my real talk about resolutions for Fredericksburg Parent here: http://bit.ly/1MMAEu9

  • OMG 60 minutes made a report on something that’s actually relevant to my life and interesting. Does that mean I’m old?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • A buzzfeed list of things, not all of which I agree make me feel euphoric as someone who loves to cook. But whatever, it IS just buzzfeed, and maybe you'll agree more than me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Food Pages July 30th

This week, I finally finished testing for my second "Beat The Heat" blog post for Fredericksburg Parent. Look for a post in the next couple days!

After I'm done writing that up, I can almost guarantee I'll spend the rest of the weekend watching season 3 of Mind of A Chef, which will be added to Netflix tomorrow, especially if the weather doesn't change from the past two days.

I'm posting this week listening to a jazz ensemble warm up in the Kogod Courtyard in the American Art Museum; one of my favorite places in DC. I got to try Beefsteak today -I had the kimchi-wa but wish I had designed my own- which I've mentioned in the links a couple times before. It was good, probably not worth the blister I got walking here to the museum from George Washington University...but that's probably more my fault for wanting to wear my super-old gold sandals. 

And in honor of the rawness of my skin today's picture is some steak I made recently.
