So I’m in search of a bowl for my Secret Santa. The name I picked out of a brown paper bag has dropped hints that she wants a pasta bowl. I’m planing on getting the bowl and filling it up with pasta, pasta sauce, an apron, kitchen towels and anything else I can find. Sounds like a fun gift right? I hope she likes it.
I love to cook! Bake…only from a box. A would love to create instead of a book club (which my group was suppose to finish reading the book Nov 17 and it’s Dec and I’m the only one reading the boring book) a club with food. A group of friends each cook a dish and then we share over wine. Unforgettably my group of friends rather go out to eat than cook. I’ll yet again be the only one cooking. Does anyone else belong to a Cooking Club?
It’s been a really long time since my last post. Life just got in the way 😉
It’s almost a week and I’m still eating turkey! Is anyone else? Right now I’m eating turkey salad sandwiches. Really good! So I think I gained a few pounds 😦 and the holiday season has just begun. Today I got home and noticed that I never put my belt on. Oh well. What’s next on the menu?
Sunday night on PBS, I caught a gimps of the documentary, Food Inc. Have you seen it? The few minutes I saw were very upsetting. They showed cattle on very large areas of land that appeared to be bare from any grass. Don’t get confused, the land they were on is not a farm but a factory. Cows are fed corn to “beef” them up quicker. Cows are meant to eat grass people! Corn is being consumed in outrages amounts even my humans and we are oblivious. Grab a box of an edible product (maybe not even edible, check your shampoo or soap) and it probably has some corn product. Don’t get me wrong I like my meat and chicken but I don’t want a sweatshop piece of meat. My lunch today, no meat! Dinner might be some wild fish or salad. I don’t thing either will be safe in Food Inc though. I think, I might just need to grow my own…EVERYTHING!
