When I was a kid I would frequently perform food experiments on myself. For example, I didn't understand why you couldn't eat the WHOLE box of cookies. Why not eat them all? The sixteenth one tastes just as good as the first one. Why all these silly limitations and discussions about moderation? If we're going to tackle this box of cookies, we're going to do it RIGHT! No quitters here, no sir. So one night, I woke up in a silent sleeping house and I snuck down to the kitchen to get to the bottom of this ridiculous rule cookie rule. About half way through a box of Chips Ahoy the answer became (barfily) clear to me. Too much junk food will make you sick. Later on I developed a spicy chili antidote to the sugar blues. I found that eating a protein packed bowl of savory chili alleviated the soupy angry discontent of a sugar saturated stomach. These days I try to avoid the total abandon to sugar gluttony that brings on the barfy feeling in the first place, but Ethan's nostalgic junk food buffet got the best of me. So here are three square meals of solid protein to set me right! We shot this ages ago. Eric has a great sense of the absurd. He comes up with bizarre concepts that I have to bring into fruition with my food styling wiles. It's always a blast to work on his projects.
