we've got a thing that's called tater love...

i kid you not, this photo wasn't photo shopped. i was scrubbing some taters and noticed an unusual pattern in the skin. i thought it was rotten so i peeled it away. lo and behold i was presented with a lovely heart. is my heart in better shape because of my vegetable consumption? i'd like to think so, but i think the message was this: veggie love is earthly love. ever heard of tikkun olam? it's a mitzvah about healing the world, and us jews are commanded to leave this place better than we found it. for me, being a vegan is a huge part of tikkun olam.

my regular camera died-(RIP), so i've been relying on older food porn photos or using my cheap assed cell phone camera. the picture doesn't do this dish any justice, and i'm mad you can't see the gorgeous, bright, and appetite inducing colors. this was a really good dish of mustard greens mixed with corn, tomatoes, and curry spices. i paired it with some simple broiled tofu. it was tasty, but i don't have a recipe. most things i make are on the fly and i should really start writing down what i put in them so i can replicate the flavors and pass on dish ideas to those who like to use recipes.

jen!!! i love that heart. that is so funny about the potato. i have a story about potatoes but it's so odd haha. my mom had a wart on her elbow, and my friend stanley heard a legend about planting a potato in somebody's yard to get rid of warts. well, my sister and i got home from school one day and found stanley digging a hole in our front yard and putting a potato in it. about 2 weeks later, my mom's wart was gone!!! we were all shocked but thought it was so funny.

ps- i HAVE to get VWAV. I asked for it for Christmas. that pineapple sauce just sounds earth shattering!
