The Hungry Philosopher

Reads, Writes, Eats and Cooks

Focusing (and Fries) Hungryphil

Dear Readers,

I need your help and indulgence.

For the next seven months, I’ll be cooking up a book project, Bittermelons and Brownies: Chewing Object-Oriented Ontology, about feeding humans from the perspective of a philosopher-mom.

I need to sit with my laptop and NOT do what is easiest for me. Blog. Instead, as all you writers out there understand I need to stare at my screen, recipes, notes, and maps… every day. So,  I give myself permission to concentrate on a sustained virtual dialogue with my daughters and other growing human beings about how to feed ourselves and others in this crazy world of things.

I’ll still blog when I need a quick shot of grounding satisfaction, like eating salty, oily, hot and steamy, thick-cut fries dipped in creamy mayonnaise or tart ketchup. Hopefully, very irregularly.

Here’s a recipe for thick cut french fries from Serious Eats.

Deeply grateful for your willingness to read my ramblings and share in my life,

      Thanks, Linda. I’ve been working on the philosophical postscript for a few years, now I need to bring it all together. I can use all the best wishes I can get!
