I have 10 pounds of Barhi dates here at the moment (er, well less because I am a date-addict)

eek...starting work with alcohol in your system, or driving on the freeway? I dunno.... Seems like more of a vacation treat kind of thing. I don't doubt the food and beer pairings are delicious. But I don't think the world needs to start getting a "morning buzz".

We use cheap, lightly serrated kitchen knives and I realize their dullness is what causes the blade to slip off the vegetable etc on occasion, BUT I am a natural clutz and have actually dropped knives on more than one occasion or done other things that have nothing to do with the blade's sharpness. So I stick with duller knives and the occasional bruise rather than getting cut etc. Works for me. My knives cost like 6 bucks for the set and I've been using them for years. :)

Weirdest thing...probably the mannequin in the kitchen leaning beside the fridge. She's dressed like a cross between a Mardi Gras chick and character from Fargo. Think glittery beads and a winter hat with ear flaps. Oh, and she's legless, so she's only waist height and we have gotten so used to her I don't even really *see* her any more, til I almost knock her over getting too many things out of the fridge at once.

Lately I like thinking of our food as nourishment for every cell of our physical being, not just our stomachs. I've taken particular delight in avoiding gluten and embracing it as a chance to try new flours, going so far as to grind our own in the blender. I like thinking about everything that just went into the cookies I made, how the ground flax seeds don't just darken and add a nutty graininess to the cookie but suddenly it's bursting with omega3, it makes the cookies seem powerful.

Soda Stream rocks!!! Apple juice with lemon and a wee bit of whiskey. SO SO good. The whiskey is used more like you would vanilla, a teaspoon will provide lots of flavour with out turning the mid-day soda into a cocktail...(unless you want that :D )
