Pattern Recognition

Wine Professor says that tasting wine is first pattern recognition, then feature extraction. Same with smelling. "nosing".

I'm making roast chickens tonight. Probably the smell that was smelled the most in my childhood.

I'm also making sweet potato fries (baked), and fresh steamed veg. Not childhood smells,just yummy ones.

nutrition I-search

One of my upcoming assignments is an I-Search paper with a ten minute oral presentation on "junk food marketing to children".

I have three weeks to get it done, but I have two other big assignments coming up soon as well as finals. I'm pretty confident I can do it all fairly well and on schedule but it will mean really knuckling down for the next couple of weeks.
