why snowden matters – food

I was going to go political, and wax upon how wrong it is when the head of a government agency lies to congress and doesn’t lose his job, and has built a spying apparatus to uncover every secret. Think it has oversight? How did one admin get all those documents and cover his tracks so they still don’t know what he took ?

I might write about what life under a government that has a rogue agency and president that can blackmail any politician or prime minister might be like. I guess people get the government they deserve and accept.

Traitor or hero, Snowden warned us how far beyond the law our government has traveled.

But instead, I think I will write about a snack we just shared.

Baby buche, market fresh carrots, grapes, medjoul dates

Baby buche, market fresh carrots, grapes, medjool dates

Whole wheat crackers from Trader Joe’s, baby buche cheese from Mackenzie Creamery in Cleveland, Elk sausage – delicate and light from the Shaker market, grapes, almonds and fresh yellow carrots from the market. Split a Guinness, a bite of cheese and cracker – a nibble of sausage. A carrot and a grape and repeat. Of course save the dates for last.
