Yesterday I ate a chocolate chip cookie. No this is not a rare occurrence in my life, much to the chagrin of my ass. But this cookie was from Wisconsin and I am not all together sure that it was a cookie because this is the ingredient list.
Enriched Wheat Flour
Chocolate Chips(sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin as an emulsifier, and artificial flavoring)
Margarine (partially hydrogenated soybean and cottonseed oils), water, salt, butter, lecithin, mono and diglycerides, sorbic acid and sodium benzoate added as a preservatives, artificially flavored, artificially colored with beta carotene, vitamin A palmitate added)
vanilla (water, ethyl alcohol, caramel color)
vanilla flavor(dextrose, corn starch, tocopherols, ascorbyl palmitate, water, vegetable oil, alcohol tumeric, propylene glycol, APO carotenal caramel color)
What the hell did I eat and why does butter need artificial flavoring?

Even though Fall is here my garden is still holding on to summer. It just yesterday when I had like 5 pots and high hopes. Now I have to figure out how to start to put my little rooftop garden to bed.
I just started getting tomatoes at the end of August, so I am pretty excited every time my tomato plant manages to squeeze one more tomato out.
And of course the dogs take all the credit.

It wasn’t long ago that I was putting potatoes in the ground and raving about how easy it was. I harvested them a week ago, and wow what a good little irish farmer I am.
But wait there is more…
SERIOUSLY !?? These are the only two potatoes I got out of an entire muck bucket of potatoes. If I had to grow potatoes for people there would most definitely be a famine. Luckily I live in the country of infinite food(which another issue entirely.)
