Another visitor from out of town…entertaining is my new way of life…

It has happened again…the pleasure of an unexpected visitor.

What do you think it is…the water or just the alluring Florida name.  This time is my baby sister.  I am nine years older than she is and she is visiting from the Dominican Republic.  Do we have a lot to catch up.  And in Spanish!

But dinner for her was a hamburger, fries and a soda.  So unvegan…and so unDominican.  This is becoming harder by the minute.  Everything and everyone that surrounds me is trying to keep me a carnivore.  One of my Face friends told me he was having a juicy steak.  Yeah, right.  Enjoy the hormones and the cloned corn that those poor cows have to eat.  No grass apply to the steaks that are readily available from most groceries stores.

My sister bought chocolates (milky ones that I do not eat), cheesecake, ice cream, all kinds of cookies, and here I am chewing on mostly grass and some fruits.  But frankly, I feel good about passing up all those goodies.  I don’t try to save her from all those arteries clogging material.  She is younger and can take it, and besides I do not want to spoil her having a good time with the oldest sister.  This is about having a fab time without trying to discuss our aging issues.

What aging issues?  We are chic and look really good.  At least that’s what we tell each other.

Oh, the blessings of sisterhood!

So…it was today…14 September, 2011…a day of enjoying the privilege of having a fun sister,  practice Spanish and remember good younger times.

    All corn you eat has been genetically modified. Without it, the yield would be about 1/3 of what it is now. They have heritage vegetables that have not been genetically modified. You should be eating only them. I have some heritage strawberries when we were in Amish country and they were very good. They were about the size of a marble and colored between red and pink. Tasted real good though. The clothes you wear come from genetically modified cotton or genetically modified sheep. There is a Whole Foods in Winter Park. They have a lot of organics.

      Thanks for the encyclopedic information. I have been to Whole Foods quite a few times and also eat the already prepared meals. They have fried plantains! I am trying to eat selected vegetables and fibers. It is not that easy as I thought. We live in a genetically modified world. Even our thinking is becoming so.

    I am thrilled you have another visitor – apparently FL is more popular than NC. I see you’ve ventured out for that first walk. Not the same here – not even playing golf – overrun by work. It is hard to motivate myself without my buddy by my side. French cooking, vegan, changes, changes, changes –

      At least you are walking while you play golf. Yes I am getting more visitors because Florida is closer to some people than NC was. A lot of changes, and some more to come. Have a great weekend! I miss you also, buddy.
