|I aspire to one day be as witty as some of the folks I read. Though I've been told I'm hilarious in person, most of my humor relies on tone and inflection, and thus falls flat in the written word. But I'm good at being maudlin in print. Really. Oh, and I like crocheting. A lot. And I'll gouge your eyes out with a 3.75mm hook if you suggest it's a) less versatile than knitting or b) the same thing as knitting.|

And while you are at it, watch my Videos
Big Tobacco is a cigar-smoking, coffee-drinking, software-writing, graduate student who has served in the Army National Guard for over 14 years, attained the grade of E-6, and should have known better than to join the Infantry.
Big Tobacco is married and a father of 2 boys. He stared this blog to keep his friends and co-workers up to date on deployment events.
Just don't take him too seriously.

So many people believe that organic foods is cost-prohibitive or simply out of their reach. The organic food movement and the slow food movement have both been called elitist in nature. The truth is that nourishing, wholesome foods that have been properly farmed are accessibly on virtually any budget.
The Nourished Kitchen calls for a return to wholesome organic foods that have been traditionally prepared. At the same time, we’re proving that these foods are not cost-prohibitive. Indeed, you can keep your costs affordable by efficiently managing your kitchen.
