JSP Visual Week In Review | 01.10.15

The slog is on.

Deep freeze hit the Great State of New Jersey this week. Winter arrived.

Cold temps. Wind. A little snow.

The slog to Spring is on.

I didn’t even do much shooting this week. Just buried into my coat and scarf, put my head down to walk from the truck to my job and back. Cranked the heat in said truck. Battled my ongoing sinus infection.

Hunkered down, basically.

On another front, my wife, Leslie, and I are trying out a non-meat movement. No pork, chicken or beef. She’s also forgoing fish, but I’m keeping that. It’s part health (on my side, a history of high cholesterol and heart attacks) and humane (have you seen some of those slaughter house videos on YouTube?). There’s also the factor of all the junk they give animals to fatten them up, which then ends up in us. And how cows contribute to global warming.

Anyway, we’re 10 days in now and it’s going pretty well. I made some awesome “meatballs” out of mushrooms last Monday, and Les has been making some pretty tasty dishes with tofu and/or lentils all week. That said, if anyone knows any good non-meat websites or recipes, shoot me an email!

Slog on, friends.
