"Although the common mantra is that a calorie is a calorie and 3,500 extra calories eaten equals a pound of fat on the body, that is not what happens in real life…"

In other news, the body? Still not a bomb calorimeter. Durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Looks like this Tumblr no longer automatically imports posts from my main blog, oops.  Anyway, so far this week I’ve also posted pictures from a shopping expedition (like Pictures at an Exhibition, but much more banal) and some cool stuff from various social media.

Attempting the spiced sorrel recipe in ‘The PDT Cocktail Book.’ Tried to halve it, ended up doubling the water just so all the dry ingredients would be submerged. This is going to be some ultra-concentrated stuff! I suspect I’ll have to dilute it with water and simple syrup to drink it straight; the “Crimson Tide” cocktail that uses it goes 1:1 with this stuff and overproof rum, plus lime juice and ginger liqueur….. Let’s just say I’m a little intimidated here, but in a hopeful way.

And but so the original TracyFood is back, for those of you who noticed it was missing.

Via David Malki!, who I guess is quoting the (adorable, adorable) video’s creator with the line “Finally my second Calarts film is completed! I wanted to make something that focuses on how meaningful it is to make food for someone you love.” Long story short: super-cute, full of win, watch it now.
