94 Days to NYC
Rest day for both running and recipes
Just felt like doing nothing today... even ordered pizza for dinner. Had an interesting conversation with the Pizza Pizza order-taker; she could not understand why I did not want the extra-large pizza, just the large, even though it was the same price. I kept trying to explain that we just simply wouldn't eat it and it would get thrown out, but that was not registering... I guess in today's western world, more is still more.
Finished Farm City. The best book I have read in a while. Totally the opposite of my Pizza Pizza order-taking ordeal. Novella Carpenter, the author, really appreciates where every bite of food comes from and feels empowered by growing her own food to feed herself, her family, and her community. I totally get the same feeling when I use the herbs and veggies from my garden.
