No exciting pictures today folks. I made a delicious homemade chicken noodle soup saturday night. Accompanied with some crusty rosemary garlic bread and some homemade cookies. However, I did not have time to shoot any photographs because Doan and I were running late for a date at the Viper Room to watch his friend Ryan play. But, have no fear! I liked the meal so much that we're having it again on Wednesday night! It was super comforting and healthy. Plus, it strikes me as a great Halloween meal because we'll want something a wee bit lighter while we snack on Halloween candy. Otherwise our food from this past weekend was pretty mundane. We did try a new thai place on Pico and Westwood, Thai Chili, after seeing Lars and the Real Girl at the Landmark. The movie was great, the restaurant? Not so much.
Anyway, be prepared... some great recipes comin' up!
Tip from Idealbite.com:
What kind of oil are you gulping?
The BiteExtra-virgin, but of course. But all of us are consuming petroleum too, since it goes into the energy it takes to produce, transport, refrigerate, market, and dispose of products (embodied energy). Next time you shop, consider the embodied energy of what you're buying.
Less overall energy use. Creating that plastic bottle of H20 you chug after a workout involves water pumping, bottling, plastic manufacturing, label printing, shipping, store refrigeration, and advertising. And that's before you drink it and throw it away. Whew.
Less oil consumption. An imported, one-liter plastic water bottle uses 1/4-liter of oil (and that's just for the pumping, bottling, and shipping).
Longer lasting products. When you consider embodied energy at the store, you'll be inclined to pick better quality products (like a reusable water bottle) that last longer.
Money savings. Not paying for that extra energy makes for cheaper products. Example? Average tap water costs $0.0015 per gallon while a 16-oz bottle can cost up to $2.
Just something to think about, check out http://www.sigg.ch/ you can buy their products at wholefoods. They are lined with copper so they keep the water tasting fresh, stay cold and remain clean.
