Net zero [Apr. 16th, 2008|01:35 pm]
A virtuous salad for lunch, followed by a slice of German chocolate cake when I got back to the office. It wasn't even GOOD cake, but Safeway made. I should have been able to resist...but...I'm a hooooor for chocolate and coconut in the same mouthful.

Reminds me of a bumpersticker I saw last week. Okay, so I was in line at the Wendy's drivethrough (THAT day there was no net zero, just bad) and the car in front of me had a bumpersticker for www.eatveg.com: Become a vegetarian, one meal at a time.

I'm reading it and thinking I'm liking its non-militant feeling when I hear the guy in the car it's on order a Baconater.

Obviously this isn't one of those meals...

Net lots

The torta al pastor I had for lunch came with a slice of ham and a fried egg as well as the usual tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, jalapenos. And the, y'know, meaty bits al pastor. Burp.

Re: Net lots


I went home and continued the trend.

A virtuous meal of casserole: red beans, poached turkey breast, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, balsamic vinegar, herbs and parmesan cheese.

And then ruined it from a calorie-load perspective, with half a bottle of red wine...which led to a bumbleberry blossom. (mini berry/apple pie)

Is this a Mounds bar fetish as well as a German chocolate cake phenomena. Cause I can carry a Mounds bar in my Faire Rig, no problem..

Make it an Almond Joy ('cause I likes my chocolate milk rather than dark) and I'm at your mercy...
