On Ryan’s Plate: Let’s Get Visual

January 18, 2012

If there’s one thing I tell my English students time and time again, it’s that reading is lame. Why read something like a nerd when you can look at a picture, like a cool person would? Now that Anna got Photoshop, I can make turn everything into a visual and never have to read again (plus, I can put Photoshop the dogs’ heads on the bodies of famous historical figures. Prepare to meet Napoleon Boneabark). Inspired by these visual recipes, I decided to create a visual recipe for Cooking Light’s Miso Chicken Recipe (but in a shocking twist worthy of M. Night Shaymalananan, the chicken has been replaced with salmon. Gasp!) So stop reading this, dweeb, and check out the recipe below.

    Welcome to my Google Reader, Ryan and Anna. Based on your literary – and pictoral (Ryan) – contributions to the information superhighway, I acknowledge your prowess. Please know that adding you to my Reader is basically tantamount to having achieved greatness. Kudos.

    (Also – hope you’re both well!)

    FYI – I completely meant to spell “pictorial” incorrectly. It’s my signature move.

    This reminds me of the 5 ingredient recipes in men’s health mag. I like that magazine better than my husband because of it’s simplicity in the food section 🙂
