  • On cream in coffee:

    I've started asking for heavy cream in my coffee as well. I get different reactions every time, depending on who's making the coffee. The looks can be pretty amazing. It does make the coffee so much better, though.
    I got an Americano with heavy cream the other day, and I guess the kid must have been new or something, because he asked if I still wanted water in it. Mentally I went "Duh... isn't that how an Americano is usually made?". Maybe he assumed I wanted the espresso shots and then the rest of the cup filled with heavy cream. ...I might have to try that next time.
    Also, I've noticed that you have to be very specific if you want your lattes and such made with whole milk - the standard is now apparently 2% milk. *sadface*

    • I love the "is whipped cream still ok?" when I ask for whole milk in my mocha or hot cocoa. Naaw- I want more fat in my milk but not in my whipped cream. Of course, I guess after making so many lattes with skim milk and whip- logic can be a bit scrambled . . .

          I just made oxtail soup last night, and added a couple beef tendons to get my offal fix for the week. Pretty damn tasty, and cheap as hell.

          I eat the tendons. My husband eats the oxtails. It's a happy marriage.

            Philz in San Francisco uses manufacturing cream in their coffee.

            They are universally loved.

            I think they try to keep it a secret, though.

But he continues suggesting different potatoe options- baked potatoes? boiled potatoes? mashed potatoes? potatosalad? and to each i patiently reply - no potatoes pls. So finally he saYs: "ok i understand. U want rice. Why cant u just say so!!" N i very patiently anwer :" no thank u, i just take what i ordered". So the waiter leaves quite pissed off...n my hubby cant stop laughing

ITS THE CAKE!!!!

                      So a healthy day of eating (according to them) would be: Vegetables, cake, meat, cake, fruit, cake, nuts, cake? I somehow doubt any of their readers are healthy.
                      In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                        Yes, but without the meat and nuts

                              • Harvard Declares Dairy NOT Part of a Healthy Diet | Care2 Healthy Living

                                and

                                Healthy Eating Plate - The Nutrition Source - Harvard School of Public Health

                                and

                                United States Wheat Subsidies || EWG Farm Subsidy Database

                                First link, talks about how Harvard is telling the USDA that they aren't going to support pushing dairy as a healthy food anymore because they prize nutrition over lobbyists. One reason given is that dairy has saturated fat.

                                Second link, is what Harvard's proposing with a quarter of the plate given over to whole grains and the protein part of the plate including legumes.

                                Third link is a look at how the U.S. subsidizes wheat. But there's only nutrition at play in Harvard's recommendations. Only nutrition.
