Sedaris, Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food, The Wind Up Bird

really liking it!

Wainwright, Band of Horses, Bov Iver, M. Ward, Wilco, Bright Eyes,

Food: I am an adventurous eater and love trying new things. I just
recently slow cooked a chicken for the first time, that was yummy.
Some of my favorite things are: avocado, oysters, bacon, asparagus,
fish, truffles (as in the ones that pigs sniff out of
forests...yum!), chicken apple sausage, homemade soups, tofu,
mushrooms, mac and cheese, wine and cheese with fig jam. I love
Mexican, Thai, Japanese, Indian, Italian, German and more... Did I
mention that I make a mean homemade mac and cheese?
