Mama Is a Little Too Busy to Post Original Content Today

This picture has nothing to do with today's post. It's the delicious salad I made on Thanksgiving: arugula, roasted butternut squash, fennel, pomegranate seeds, toasted pecans and a maple vinaigrette. I am posting it here so there's something sorta pretty to look at when I don't have any recipes and related pictures to post. It also reminds me that before I got sucked into the black hole of daily life I made some pretty good food once in a while.

I'm up to my eyeballs in a bunch of projects along with getting ready to go away and trying to write thank-you notes to private schools. For those of you who don't live in NYC with a child to educate consider yourselves very lucky that you'll never engage in this process. I can tell you, no lie, that I didn't work nearly this hard to get myself into Cornell. But I love NY. No, really, I do. I just love complaining, too.


In the absence of anything to post - here are a few sites of interest that I enjoy visiting - some food related and some not (and in no particular order). - Hilarious political satire/commentary. - A great site for delicious tea and enough information about tea to earn you a degree in, oh I don't know, Tea-ology. - News and commentary on the NYC restaurant scene. - Fascinating look into a life so vastly different than mine. Don't miss the cooking section - it's fabulous. - I'm a raging liberal. So sue me. - An excellent source for recipes that have been tested and critiqued. - The name says it all, no? And, if you order $40 worth of stuff you get free gifts - like excellent coffee (or so I am told - Thanks, Sarah!)

Those should keep you busy for a while. I'll be back with your regular dose of recipes mixed with a soupcon of snark, tomorrow.
