1. Have you been to Cluck. Cluck. Sew? There are so many easy fun sewing tutorials linked on the side. I know my male readers are really excited about that. Have a look, my sewing friends.
2. My blog is having an appearance identity crisis. Please suggest things you have liked or do like, or your philosophy of blog appearance, or any other flitting thought you may have about how I can coalesce the essence of my blogging self into an appealing header and non-annoying background.
3. I made these for dinner the other day, along with roasted green beans and roasted brussel sprouts (Vegetables: The Food of the Dieting Month). The Siopao with Sassy Sauce was delicious, but lately I have been thinking too much about where meat comes from, and I'm afraid that I might be on the verge of full-blown nuclear vegetarianism. I'd say, "I mean, think about it," but I don't want anyone else to be as uncomfortable in an entrenched lifestyle as I am becoming. So by all means, DON'T THINK ABOUT IT.
I'm reading Stiff, by Mary Roach, a humorous book about cadavers (I know, weird!), and she mentions how people who work with cadavers use coping mechanisms such as objectification. And I don't want to have to objectify my food. I'll tell you my real concern with vegetarianism. Beans. Do you know how to get a complete vegetarian protein? Legumes + Some starch or grain or other. And that means a LOT of the magical fruit. Ugh.
Ugh. I'm just going to go cry on my pillow about all of these terrible problems of my ugly blog and saying goodbye to eating dead animals. Or maybe I'll look at Cluck Cluck Sew, some more. That ought to cheer me up.
