Convenient that this video fails to give any detail on what these nefarious regulations would be. It's just a lot of hand-waving saying "Trust us...they are bad!" I did not see them interviewing anyone on the other side of these regulations, thus this piece calling itself "news" is laughable.

For example, simply having someone from the Natural Resource Defense Council simply state that something is going to undermine the Endangered Species Act is meaningless. You don't think this guy has a bias or agenda for his cause given the name of the organization he represents? What he calls undermining could be the return of common sense to the application of the Act, but without any details - something this left-wing Bush hit piece we are so used to by now - does not give us. Also, all these left-wing groups who are up in arms over Bush passing midnight regulations, I wonder if they had any issue with Clinton doing the same? The economist they interviewed did not that Dubya was able to undo only three percent of Clinton's regulations. I find that concerning. Bottom line, this is not news or anything to be alarmed about. Depending on who is in the White House and you outlook, it is simply business as usual in Washington.

What I'm Reading

What I'm Cooking

  • Cheap Ceviche
    This is almost a mock ceviche because it's made with junk fish (tilapia) and surimi, the tofu of fish. However, with the right amounts of lime juice, cilantro, onion and hot sauce, even cheap fish makes a fabulous ceviche. I chopped up a 1/2 pound of tilapia and combined it with 2 packages of chunked surimi. Marinate in juice of 5 limes, 1/2 red onion chopped fine, and one head of cilantro chopped fine. Add a healthy squirt of Sriracha sauce and refrigerate.
  • Collard Greens
    My CSA is sending us lots of green love in the form of collard greens. Here's my very delicious veggie-but-smoky recipe. In a large pot add 1 cup vegetable broth, 1 cup water. Nice pinch of salt, and 3/4 tsp. Spanish smoked Paprika. Add your chopped collards and simmer gently for at least 45 minutes.
  • Tzatziki Sauce
    Just outstanding on everything. Take a container of Greek style yogurt (no-fat, low -fat, doesn't matter). Grate 2-3 thin skinned middle eastern cukes on a box grater and squeeze out all the water. Mince 3 cloves of garlic VERY fine. Stir cucumber and garlic into yogurt, add a splash of olive oil and a grind of black pepper. Dunk in vegetable of your choice, slather on spanakopitas, etc.
  • Polenta
    Apparently the par-boiled polenta I'm using is considered ca-ca by serious cooks. I've found it to be utterly delicious, especially smothered with sauteed portobello mushrooms. I will give plain old yellow cornmeal polenta a try after Thanksgiving.
  • Hangar Steak
    Grilled in a cast iron pan in the oven, on broil. Remarkably tender and so quick. Salt, pepper and smoked paprika for seasoning.
  • Brussels Sprouts + Corn
    A smashing combination -- the bitter tang of the Brussels Sprouts with the sweetness of corn. Saute with olive oil, salt and pepper. C'est tout!
  • Stuffed Cabbage
    My favorite recipe From the NY Times Jewish Cookbook, made with fresh cranberries and canned cranberry sauce. Total yum.
