Keeping It Real

As a child, my parents let me do things that would mortify today’s parents. I sold Girl Scout cookies door to door alone, rode a bike without a helmet, walked to school, and rolled around in the far back of a station wagon as we drove down the freeway. I also probably ate an entire cow before I became a vegetarian. A warning to animal lovers- you may not want to look at the pictures below. I’m just trying to provide an honest perspective here. rps20160703_144653rps20160703_144812rps20160703_144727

    The amazing thing is that we all survived. For the most part. And the World population is increasing at an alarming rate even with all the deaths due to lack of “safety” measures. And we are fully part of the animal kingdom and the food choices that we learn are partly from necessity and partly from availability. Many food choices are really learned choices. In the USA, most people have no real or practical understanding or experience with the food that they eat. It is something that you just buy in a store. That “food” was never living or had a life. It just magically showed up on a store shelf. There is tremendous pain and suffering in the animal kingdom so that the human animal can eat.

      That’s what Doug and I talked about last year. Even I, a vegetarian had to agree with Doug on this. An animal is an animal and if you are going to raise it, kill it and eat it then the least you can do for it is take good care of it while it’s in your hands and dispatch it as quickly and humanely as possible. That being said, I don’t think that we can truly say that about factory farmed meats in the US so who am I to judge.

    Our grandmother, Edvige, used to serve us “head cheese” made of organ meat and gelatin. My mother, a Latina, gave us pickled pig’s feet. I liked them both but would have to move out of my house if Peggy found me eating either. Hope the veggies and rice are tasty – safe travels.

      The veggies and rice are very good. We had a lovely lunch yesterday with eggplant, string beans and red chilies. The produce here is so fresh. It makes all the difference.
