I have my eye on things and things may not be as they appear


Every time I tell the truth I find that I alienate people - every time I alienate people I am glad I told the truth. I tested out of an advanced Sociology class in college for full credit with a report I wrote on how to start a cult and my cult worshipped the cantaloupe. Needless to say I have not started any cults but I certainly know how they work. So in order to bring order back to this disorder we will no longer focus on those types of things that make people examine themselves too deeply. Instead lets just eat ice cream and be happy.

You can probably tell that I am not using my blog to get a book deal or to teach people how to boil water or to be some sort of recipe reservoir as much as this blog is, as the URL implies, all about me, always was and always will be - but that doesnt mean that it hasnt helped me because it definitely has.

I was the lucky recipient of some delicious homemade goat cheese from none other than David Fankhauser the cheese man himself. I have posted links to his website during the times I was attempting new cheeses - if you recall.

A simple radish sandwich on toast with butter can not be beat.

For that matter plantains fried in butter and drizzled with sweetened condensed milk can not be beat either.

Remember that I have my eye on the pulse and the heartbeat...and I dont have normal eyes.

Oh yeah and I made some peach ice cream - nothing says summer more than peach ice cream.

You are a lucky fellow with homemade goat cheese.

Enjoy your Father's day weekend with that adorable son and don't worry too much about alienating people. Gives you stress and besides, it's their loss.

hey, I posted a picture of my eye at Thanksgiving, too! It must be going around. My blog hasn't been much food lately. That's just how the world's been going. Love your afternoon sky over NYC.

Happy Father's Day Christo!
Did your son inherit your intriguing eyes?

Remember that politically correct people all too often get offended by real opinions. It upsets their world of skittles and rainbows.

Other than that, these photos look tasty. I know you will enjoy your Fathers day, even if you reside in the real world!

goat cheese is one of the few foods i just haven't gotten myself to like. maybe if i got the good stuff i would feel differently.

everything looks so delicious, as usual.

You have quite a collection of creamy goodness here, Christo. And I've never eaten a radish sandwich, but plan to try this very soon as I hear they're delicious. You have freckles in your eyes. Cool!

Radish sandwich..my favorite.
I've gotten to the point where I don't examine myself, I just am. More peaceful that way.
I've also learned to keep my opinions to myself unless they are positive, or I am asked. Even then I am cautious. Life is too short.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. I agree, forget the discourse and enjoy the dessert course!

My grandfather used to put a can of sweetened condensed milk in my stocking every Christmas. It pissed my Mother off, but I adored it!

I like this post--keep telling the truth.

Cheese and radishes have been popular in our diet, too, as of late.

Cheers.

Christo, this is so neat and interesting. I've never had a radish sandwich ever! I don't even eat a lot of radishes either. Hmmmm, I should give that sandwich a shot. Anyways, you should definitely post a vegan ice cream recipe. Oooh, that would be great! Hope you are all well and enjoyed your father's day a few days ago!

Christo, I just realized you disabled your commenting from anyone without an account. I just signed up for the google thing to leave a comment from your post. I hope you get it back to the usual so I can post on your blog more often. -Rylan of Art and Appetite

You are too funny, and you get the coolest stuff! I want to be you when I grow up, or at least a mini you :)
That ice cream looks fantastic by the way...

purabi naha said...

Oh, you are so lucky to receive those homemade goat cheese from David Fankhauser. The pictures look delicious!

Eftychia said...

The desserts and the eye look very GOOD!! :-))

You know, what I love about your blog is that it is all about you and your passion for food. More and more blogs are all about the desperate search for fame, fortune and a book deal. I admire those who stay true to themselves, their values and their own style and cuisine. On another note, I have been trying to convince my husband that his next profession is guru of a cult. Maybe we should talk!
