Damn Beggars

Tiny little seeds everywhere.
"Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof." -Ezekiel 4:9

Ezekiel bread is surprisingly tasty fare. We bought some a week or two ago as part of this reduced processed flour/no sugar diet. I could take a shine to this assuming we do make the fresh strawberry jam we've been considering. The bread has this fantastic acidic quality that, I think, comes from the beans used to produce it. I don't quite understand WHY Americas has shifted over to high-processed flour breads, gummy and like marshmallow, without flavor. All of the breads I've eaten in the last year - the ancient sour dough, the spelt flours, the super dense country loaves at market - are just remarkably tasty and interesting to chew.

In fact, they could easily be called a marathon of chewing. Maybe that's why Wonder Bread is so popular. It doesn't require teeth. And you know us Americans. If anything is more patriotic than gumming your sandwiches to paste, let a firework burn a hole in my car.

I've also drastically cut back on wine consumption so I must replace the inebriation with stilted prose.

"Your food which you eat shall be twenty shekels a day by weight; you shall eat it from time to time. Eat the food as you would a barley cake; bake it in the sight of the people, using human excrement for fuel." - Ezekiel 4:10, 12

I've tried them all, and you can't beat PB&J on delightfully soft industrial process bread (wunderbred!). Sure there are a lot of sandwiches in the sea, but It's PB and J for me.

Also, sometimes people want fat and sugar and not to have to take a nap half way through chewing.

But the more you chew, the stronger your jaw gets; thus, the more and longer you can eat!

Those sound like fightin' words.

Name the food, time, and place, and I'll eat you under the table*!!!!

Dude, I don't eat much at all any more. I barely managed 6 ounces of my 12ish ounce, cocoa crusted steak last night.

I'll care when I'm no longer eating this delicious double cream brie.

I looked at that picture and it's likely the pregnancy thing, but the first thing I thought was that perhaps if you gave the traffic cones candycorn they're following in the hopes of getting the rest of their children back?

Also, I concur. I am a fan of chewing textured items.
