                                            Oh, I definitely have a fat soul and I can pig out with the porkiest of them. Maybe not as often, but three helpings of sausage and polenta on occasion? Why not?

Since I often incorporate leftovers into new meals, proportions will never be the same. For example the balance of lemon and lime zest that went into yesterday's sandwiches.

Even following recipes, I end up with a variable product. And if I do get a fabulous result, I can't necessarily duplicate it.

Then, I consciously tried to stop and the discipline that came from it helped to produce better food. One tip is to cook before the second martini.

I don't shave regularly, see nothing wrong with wearing the same pair of shorts a couple times a week, and walk around bearfoot* whenever I can get away with it. Nonetheless, I learned that a little more patience (and a little less gin) led to benefits in the kitchen.

So far nobody has ever complained about my cooking/baking and I rather enjoy cleaning up after myself all these years :). I'd never think to let anyone else do it :).
