Since I last ate.

I feel like a chest cold is coming on.  I want to take an herbal supplement that my niece recommended to nip it in the bud, but she told me, "Do not eat or drink 30-40 minutes before AND after taking it."

Uh... that's a tough window of time to find in the life of a compulsive emotional eater.

Could someone please administer this to me while I'm sleeping?

Uncommon Restaurant

We recently went to dinner with our daughter and her husband to celebrate her birthday. She selected Communal Restaurant in Provo, where they served meals made with fresh produce from local farms, and "local and sustainable meats and cheeses." The masterfully prepared foods were a delight to the taste buds, making many pleasurable "mmm mmm mmm" moments.

We had a reservation for four and sat at our own table, but in another part of the restaurant a long table invited communal feasting where strangers socialized as they dined.

The menu changes every season as various produce becomes available. I would love to sample foods from every menu. It's amazing how fresh local foods make such a difference.

And a poor reflection on our society when serving  fresh foods makes a restaurant uncommon.

April Fools...on me.

Yesterday (Easter Sunday) I posted about marshmallow peeps being indestructible, and a reader pointed out that the information was faulty (thank you, Lynn). I avoid the I read it on the internet so it must be true mindset (hahaha)... but since the article was printed in a trusted, reputable magazine, (and because I was in a hurry) I didn't double check the facts. I was fooled.

I removed the post since I don't want to mislead or give false information.
