am i just torturing myself by blogging about food on yom kippur? probably. i actually like to call it "yum" kippur because after not eating all day to atone for my sins everything tastes really good and i eat like i've never seen food before. actually, i'm doing a modified fast. i'm drinking water and soy milk because i'm nursing and need some sustenance.
anyway, this post isn't about the fasting...it's about the feasting. specifically eating dessert for breakfast. MOFO assignment: have you eaten dessert in place of a meal? sure i know it's not nutritionally sound to have decadent persimmon pudding topped with vanilla soy delicious for breakfast, but i don't think it's any different than eating a couple of doughnuts, pop tarts, or a big stack o' pancakes drowned in maple syrup. i don't do it all the time, just most of the time. i'm surprised i'm not diabetic.
i'll post the recipe later with some info on persimmons. for now, look at the pretty.
