At [Wife]’s mother’s in Davis, CA. Why do the mashed pota­toes taste so good? Be­cause they con­tain both but­ter and cream cheese.

It’s now 14 days later and I’m going back, filling in meals in as rough a way as possible—just try­ing to get the ball­park num­bers in—but if I let my­self I can re­mem­ber them very accurately. Clam chowder—no, tur­key noodle soup, and they brought a small bas­ket of bread with crack­ers and I ate all of it. Rowdy teens sat in one corner; an old lady in another. At the end I had cheesecake.

I won­der how far I could go back. “What did you eat for din­ner on July 10?” Would it be pos­sible for me to re­build that meal without re­fer­ring to this site?

Turns out I can’t. I just checked. We went over to A&A’s for dinner—seafood and pasta. Al­though I re­mem­ber the meal well. As I get older my memory is going but by writ­ing things down and read­ing them over I can re­fresh it. In­ter­est­ing that meals are now ba­sic­ally like notecards, something to re­turn to for observation. And that food is the or­gan­iz­ing prin­ciple of my life. Which is better, I suppose, than glut­tony being the or­gan­iz­ing principle.
