Just because, I am browsing Valentine's Day recipes on allrecipes.com and giggling at them for a couple reasons.

1) Why would you cover filet mignon, an extremely expensive and delicious cut of meat, in a strong sauce? Strong sauces are for things that don't taste great otherwise. If you can't taste the filet mignon, why get filet mignon in the first place?
2)  What's with all the rich food? I have nothing against rich food, but it does make physical activity more difficult, and that's the last thing I would think one would want on Valentine's Day.
3) Why is there so much salmon? If it were oysters, I'd understand, but salmon? Is there a myth about salmon's aphrodisiac qualities that I haven't heard? Am I just not getting it because I hate salmon?
4) Turducken? Seriously?

I've got a little cold, so I've got hot and sour soup. Unfortunately, the Chinese takeout near us has the wimpiest hot and sour soup ever. So I decided to rev it up a bit, with 1/8 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp white pepper, and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes.

That was at least two times as much heat as was necessary or even tolerable for more than a few spoonfuls. But my sinuses are clear!
