As I mentioned on Saturday, Brian and I are pretty low-key in the V-Day department. Plus we’re on break from school this week, so our travel plans interfered with celebrating on the big day itself. So, we “celebrated” our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple last week.
For my part, I offered to make Brian the meal or baked good of his choosing.
Brian told me he bought me something off of my Amazon wish list.
That’s the normal part. Here comes the irony.
Brian’s request: Meatloaf, garlic mashed potatoes, carrots cooked in butter and dill and biscuits.
Confession #2: I’ve never actually read any of Michael Pollan’s books. But I’ve read enough articles and watched enough interviews to know that I agree with him. My plan is to spend the rest of my school break reading In Defense of Food.
So, did we “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”? (That’s Pollan’s basic guideline) Well…we ate food…probably too much…not many plants…but it was really yummy and we enjoyed ourselves.
And I’m really excited about reading my book.
