New Menu; New Serving Size

July 3, 2010

As I have mentioned in passing, my darling wife lives with a chronic and debilitating illness.  Luckily, it can be managed with a somewhat baroque regimen of medications (which are compounded of melted gemstones from other galaxies, judging from their price).

If you are a comic book reader, you will already know that no alien technology is an unmixed blessing.  In this case, the side effect is “metabolic syndrome X.”  No, seriously.  That’s what it’s called.  Look here.  See?  I wasn’t lying.  Left to its own devices,  MSX becomes coronary disease, hypertension, and diabetes.

And it turns out that what works best to control metabolic syndrome is .  .  . a Mediterranean diet, with extra walnuts. Which means more hummus, Greek salad, and whole wheat pita, and a lot less cake.

Bear with me as I shift gears.  Looks like the csa was a good investment.

    your words sing. Now, am I wrong to think this photo is a teeny tiny cake? So that, while eating less, you sacrifice none of the beauty?

    I smile at this.

    It’s a teeny stack of cornmeal pancakes–hold the syrup.

    And now I’m dying to make teeny cakes–with sprinkles. Smaller than cupcakes. But still in layers, with frosting. Hurrah!
