Dishes were always a big issue in my house. In the beginning, I would keep everything clean as a perfect Martha Stewart kitchen. But one day I started working outside the house and I had a new baby. I woke up early in the morning, breastfed my baby, got dressed and faced one hour commute to my work place. Every day, when coming back home, I had to breastfeed my baby again, cook the meal for the family and clean the kitchen, and off course, wash the dishes. My sink became messy with a pile of dishes that were tossed there until I got home. By that time, my husband was a stay home dad , as he had lost his job. I noticed that instead of helping me out, washing his own dishes, at least, he used all the cleaning ones until none was available. I started wondering why he would do that , when I was hassling between my job, the commute, the nights awake to breast feed my three months baby and the kitchen chores. Why?

Men are unable to function in the extremely high pressure situations that women try to put them in, such as helping out in the kitchen or cleaning the house. In “Lost in the Kitchen” by Dave Barry, these incapabilities are highlighted and ridiculed by Barry in order to put a comedic spin on the situation. The use of different resources of language such as stereotypes, hyperboles, and comparisons all support the main point that men are subpar in the kitchen compared to their female compatriots.
We are all familiar with the notion of “pleasure.” Simple pleasures are ever-present in our lives but complex, extended pleasures are fulfilling yet fleeting. They bring about intense experiences to gratify our desires, although they are not a necessity, in the same way slaughtering and plating an overhunted species is not absolutely imperative. However, despite my own belief that an endangered species is not to be poached upon, I commend Liz Alderman for completing “Chefs Fight for Songbird” in a way in which she successfully set key points from both sides of the arguments while also discreetly and strategically establishing and backing her own position in the feud. For those completely unfamiliar with the topic, Alderman might be able to
The Alfred E Smith dinner is a white tie fundraiser in the United States for Catholic charities supporting the neediest children of the Archdiocese of New York, regardless of race, creed, or color. The first dinner was in 1945, the year after Al Smith 's death. It is generally the last event at which the two U.S. presidential candidates share a stage before the election. At the dinner the each candidate is supposed to roast themselves and then at the end poke fun at their opponent briefly. This wasn’t the case for either candidates at the dinner.

Barthes’s essay of “Steak Frites” in mid-20th century France, showcases the French ideals and mythology of consuming steak in its more rare and bloody form of, saignant. Barthes explains the ideals explaining: eating steak fills the consumer with the strength of said animal. The French believe that meat should be eaten in terms of the blood content [saignant] and a good steak is eaten more rare in order to be closer in touch to the animal providing a more exceptional meal. In France a common belief is, “steak is endowed a supplementary virtue of elegance” (Barthes 84).Meaning a meal of more importance and luxury, as the French see it as a more prestigious food. Because of this, beef is nationalized more than socialized in their culture. The French Mythology introduces the idea that steak, is a means of acquiring the strength of a powerful animal. French call this, “Bifteck, the heart of a a cut of meat, mythologically it is meat in the pure state, and whoever eats it assimilates a taurine strength” ( Barthes 83). In contrast to the French mythology of consuming steak and acquiring an animal like strength, the American ideal associates steak as a delicacy consumed by the upper class and by indulging in its luxury it provides a sense of wealth.
