Thanks everyone 
for your insights and suggestions
as usual, I'm amazed 
that you always find the time 
to share your ideas
 and experiences 
so freely

Consequently ...

I've decided that there will always be 
a meat alternative 
at my table from now on

An Ongoing Dilemma

Since becoming vegan, almost 2 years ago now, Joe and I have been a little uneasy about what to serve at dinner parties. 

So far we've served vegan food only but have noticed that our guests are less than thrilled with our decision.

Should we be serving them meat and dairy?
What would you do?

Highly Addictive

i got up early this morning, awakened by my husband's very loud opening & closing of drawers as he got ready for work

  i let ben out, and kissed the hubs goodbye as he left for another very long day of kitchen building

i went back to bed but couldn't sleep
  so I slipped Julie & Julia into the DVD player and watched it
 in complete happiness
 for the umpteenth time
when it was over, the sun was up

i love this movie ... 
her apartment and the food she prepares with such passion 
in the tiny kitchen
 the friendship she shares with her husband
 the story of triumph over fear
  and of course the ending is every would be writer's dream
 isn't it?

if you love food, writing and cooking, you must see this
  a warning though, it's highly addictive; your first time will probably not be your last

bon appétit!
