ah, the internets.

Today as I peeled almonds, I thought, "I am insane." It took 20 minutes to do half a cup. But I also wondered about where I would be without the internets... How else would I have learned how to blanch almonds in such an annoying and time consuming fashion? It did save me a trip to the store, so that's something..
Over the last few months, I have googled my way through gardening, canning and all kinds of diy projects. Someone has actually written a book about the big influence the internet has had on the "sustainable food movement", as treehugger calls it. Check it out, yo. It's called Cultivating the Web. Sounds interesting.
