It was a crazy week in IACP land, and I have a serious conference hangover. Not, mind you, an actual hangover, but just a need to decompress and reflect on the past five days. I’m taking the day off until I have the brain power to sift through my copious notes and compose some entertaining, yet informative, posts.
In the meantime, I’m spending the week in lovely Boulder, Colorado with an old friend from grad school. I’m looking forward to a home cooked meal – we’re having pork tenderloin stuffed with apples and nutmeg, the whole thing wrapped in proscuitto. Pork with pork. I love it.
Also, since we’re both chemists, we’re talking about science. We both developed liquid crystalline materials (he still does) so that’s been the main topic of conversation so far. It’s been a while since I’ve used words like smectic, atropisomeric, and chiral.
Anyway, that was my lame attempt at a joke about food science. Because for now, cooking + talking about science = food science. So there.
