last day in baton rouge

kone brought this massive red drum for us to eat. he caught it off the coast of florida proving that he is a very capable fisherman. (the fish fought old-man-and-the-sea-style). this is right before the big fish lost its head, so kone's smile looks somewhat maniacal, don't you think? he also brought a cooler full of other fish (that he, his wife, and kids all caught). we were generous in sharing the joy of freshly dead fish with friends.
and this here is kone's cooking, deep fried fish (seasoned to perfection) and stir fried veggies...
...proving that despite appearances, kone is also very capable at making some good food. as i always say, "just do it."


and i am proving that i am very capable at eating some good food.

it looks so delicious! except for that shot of the fish with its head on. i don't like food that still looks alive. i don't want to know that it was once a real live animal.

(katie, do NOT read this comment)

as i always say, i eat all animals equally... so i surely won't discriminate based on the head, head-less distiction.

so even if it looks like an animal, i am still gonna eat... besides, if we weren't supposed to eat animals, then why are they made of meat?

May I gently suggest:
The Way We Eat: Why Our Food Choices Matter (Hardcover)
by Peter Singer, Jim Mason
