Against Meat by Jonathan Safran Foer

Well, as you may have guessed it, things have remained a little crazy around here and blogging has had to be put on the back burner.  However! I have just gone to the grocery store and picked up some verrry interesting sweet potatoey items, including *brace yourself* WHITE sweet potatoes! Yes, I plan an expose about these in the very near future (tonight? hopefully!!).  But for today, please enjoy this wonderful article written in the NYT by Jonathan Safran Foer.  Beautifully written, really just a pleasure to read.  This is not a radical plea against meat…rather a well told narrative about his family, his roots and the decisions that have shaped his life.

Also, if you haven’t read or seen Everything is Illuminated….well go do it.  You won’t be disappointed.


On another note, here is a video that I know many of you will enjoy…however, please get your handkerchiefs out…you will need them.  I have heard of this story before, but this video is so beautiful and touched my heart….so I am passing it onto yours.
