Pondering the line between delicious and medicinal reminded me that some years ago a very peppery oil had inspired a brilliant biomedical hunch. That’s why I made a note to call Dr. Gary Beauchamp, the director of the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia: to get an update on the chemistry of the olive oil cough.

At the 1999 international workshop on molecular and physical gastronomy, in the mist-shrouded mountain town of Erice, Sicily, the physicists Ugo and Beatrice Palma brought along oil freshly pressed from their own trees. Dr. Beauchamp tasted the oil and felt his throat burn, as did I and all the other attendees. But he was the only one who immediately thought of ibuprofen.

New wine blog from a friend of Matt Yglesias. Not sure about the quality, but probably worth a look at least.

Lately I have had more than my usual share of failures in the kitchen...
I need some disipline too:>) I have been distracted, stessed, and not paying attention to detail...

Now that spring is here I am getting back on tract, try this adaption of a dish from Diner (I got this from thier excellent food mag called Diner Journal)

Pan fry prosciutto and ramp greens (only), set aside.
Blanche asparagus lightly, throw above on top.
Fry a (Flying Pig Farms) egg on top of that.
A dash of Celtic salt, olive oil, and a parmesan shave.
Crake the egg and let the yoke run, YUM!!

Lately I have had that Failure As A Dad feeling....

Not in the love/fun/spirit/etc dept where I feel I am a few notches above par but in disipline, sure I had no idea that my boy was a Strong Willed Lux Model, and that I was also the same and my parents prob had a tough time with me but still its been hurting lately....

The books have helped to understand the underlying psychology and I am using them to get some stuff done, but he's also moody and he's got some other issues too (like not wanting to poop, daddy cant poop enough and he wants to hold it in), anyway I would not want him any other way, he's awesome, even when he wakes up 9 times out of 10 cryingh/moany/moody, if he see's me before mommy in the morning he slams the door to his room and throws a fit, but soon its "Daddy Can You.....??" and were off....

The daughter looks like she will be easy but I am smarter now too...

Accompanied by six graphs, two tables and equations whose terms include “bologna” and “carpet,” it’s a thorough microbiological study of the five-second rule: the idea that if you pick up a dropped piece of food before you can count to five, it’s O.K. to eat it.

A GALLON jar of pickles sits near the register at Lee’s Washerette and Food Market, a mustard-colored cinder-block bunker on the western fringe of this Mississippi Delta town.

Those pickles were once mere dills. They were once green. Their exteriors remain pebbly, a reminder that long ago they began their lives on a farm, on the ground, as cucumbers.
