munching on the remaining pork jerky while watching fleetwood mac "the dance." hmmm...i'm always the cool kid. but man this pork jerky is tasty despite the fact that i feel like i'm eating dog food. and let me tell you, the dog loves the stuff! came home yesterday to find her digging her little snout into the bag. luckily she couldn't get to the stuff, so i trimmed off the tips of the jerky for her and replaced the bag. the cat, too, is committed to jerky acquisition. he all but sat on my head in his attempts to eat the jerky right out of my hand.

i've never had pork jerky before...only beef, turkey and buffalo and i must say pork is the most moist and tasty. i think i'm hooked. hopefully they sell it somewhere around here and i won't be forced to make four hour drives from ann arbor to toronto to get the stuff. there's this fantastically large asian mall up there, mainly chinese and it is completely overwhelming for the ignorant whities (that would, of course, be me). there's more food in that mall that is not familiar to me than food that i've cooked with or eaten. how exciting! my favorite stores sell dried food, displayed in little glass jars lining the store. five different kinds of dried wasabi peas, six kinds of pickled mango, about ten kinds of pickled ginger, a zillion kinds of dried mushrooms. gulp. and all that jerky!

i wonder if stevie nicks is a vegetarian. probably. but i bet christine mcvie likes herself a good steak now and then.
