Perhaps you are wondering which Food Rules from Michael Pollan’s Food Rules An Eaters Manual this recipe follows..well here are a few.

Eat Food

Eat Your Colors

Eat only foods that will eventually rot

Avoid Food products that no ordinary human would keep in the pantry.

Don’t eat anything your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.

    I wasn't there, but I do appreciate the recipe. I'm doing some blog surfing rather than picking up all the fallen branches and leaves from the storm yesterday. Thanks for making my life easier by providing dinner plans for this evening.
