I will start keeping food posts separate so I don’t have to lock them away. Perhaps one day I will perform the messy job of separating and unlocking that content from my old posts… but don’t count on it anytime soon.

One good thing about trying to buy organic meat is that I tend to buy less of it (because it costs as much as my house) and hence, we eat less meat. I think that’s good. I’ve cut down our red meat consumption and I generally limit myself to one 3-ounce serving of meat a day. Fish is another story. I could eat a 140-pound tuna in one sitting, raw.

fruity
I bought so much fruit today, we’re going to be shitting fruit rollups.

yoshi
Jeremy and I tried lunch today at a sushi joint my friend recommended, Sushi Yoshi. Not bad, not spectacular. Two things I miss about So Cal: the groceries (TJs, farmers markets, ethnic grocers) and sushi.

avocado trick
Here’s how to remove an avocado pit without mushing it all to hell. I learned this from our friend and sushi chef, Fumito. First cut the avocado in half.


with a firm and careful stroke, lodge the heel of your knife into the pit

while heel is stuck in the pit, twist the knife until the pit comes loose
