Preserve me / From that which is lacking flavor.
Or, eat well and live… I guess.
We are the wrath of gods and the desolation of the squash. It is on this day that snow drifts and howls, my workplace cowers in terror, and I concoct a
firm foundation of unyielding despairdelicious, cheap, and- if you care- healthy and vegetarian bit of comfort food for y’all. To perceive is to suffer, but to perceive while hangry is just stupid. Crack a beer, or as many beers as you like, and follow along for something that will allow you to be, if not proud, at least capable of saying “I did a thing.”
Pizza and burgers. The kings of the Western food world. Atop the food pyramid these titans sit, locked in a sort of perpetual truce. Should one of them be snubbed in favour of the other on one drunken Friday night, they care not. For they know that the battle runs long. A single weekend matters not in the struggle eternal.

However, all those delicious starchy tubers combined with beer will likely render you more lard than bard. You could drink less beer, of course, if you wanted to make an early self-appointed date with the noose, or on the other hand, you could make this awesome Cajun-spiced pulled pork & honey-mustard braised red cabbage to tide you over until Spring.

If you wanted to extend your life by indulging in the process of ingesting organic molecules, you could make dumplings. Or you could just not bother.
