Fake eggs?!?! What'll they come up with next?????

In related news, I really want to try a real 100-year egg. Granted, the eggs aren't really 100 years old, they're just packed with lime (as in calcium oxide/hydroxide, not the fruit) and wood ash and buried for a couple months and they end up looking like this. The mind-boggling chemical reactions that must take place for an egg to turn into that have everything to do with the intense alkalinity of the packaging materials. Very intriguing stuff.
 
 
I have been pretty lazy about my blog lately. Probably because I now have actual classes. Yes, you see, until last week, I only had two classes (Literature and Nutrition), but now I have two culinary classes, which each run 6 hours in length, and occupy much of my time and energy. They both have regular homework assignments, and my other two classes coincidentally just started to assign more homework (or so it seems). So there's that. But I've still been cooking and taking pictures of everything I cook, so fear not! As soon as I can will myself to write a snippit on each dish, I'll submit an entry about them.

In other news, I inherited about 10# of pre-sliced button mushrooms from the Newbury College cafeteria, which intended to throw them away. They're perfectly good. A bit oxidized, but that's all. So expect to see a lot of mushrooms in my food in the near future. If you have any suggestions for what to do with them, please submit them. I'm in no danger of running out!


Today, I hope to have an entry in food and opinions. But I'm also chipping away at some homework, so wish me luck.
 
 
I am to start a diet now to see, if fiber is what it is said to be. With added sugars out of my pantry, now quinoa for me has replaced ice cream. The distant past, I used to eat so well, but such a claim would now be hard to sell. Throughout the weeks I'll write about my food, and let you know the choices I found shrewd.

P.S. If you didn't read that in Iambic Pentameter, please go back and do so now. It took some thought, and I'd like to think it wasn't in vain!
