Right now....

In my mug:
Honey of an apple tea with a smidge of extra honey

In my belly:
1 egg and some homemade hashbrowns.

In the CD Player: Otis Redding
Fave Otis song: These Arms of Mine

What I'm happy about: Re-connecting with some old friends yesterday. I miss them.

In my camera: pics of Double Decker Banana Bread (I finally cleared out the almost 1000 photos in the camera) Here's a sneak peek.

DD Banana Bread

On my feet:
2 pairs of socks
(it's chilly)

On the nightstand:
In the middle of - Omnivores Dilemma – Pollan
Reading on and off and dreaming of all the summer desserts I'll make with:
Rustic Fruit Desserts - Crumbles, Buckles, Cobblers, Pandowdies, and More (Don't ya just love that word - Pandowdie?? I do!)

In the oven:
Orange Brownies

In the fridge:
Pork brining for Monday nights dinner.

Last DVD in the player:
Food Inc. - everyone who eats (that just about sums up the WORLD now doesn't it?) should watch this movie. I always thought McDonalds was the root of all evil, this movie confirmed it.

Food Inc

What I hear:
Birds chirping outside. Yeah! I missed that sound.

Last quote that I read (and love)
There is more to life than increasing its speed ~ Ghandi

Looking forward to:
Jamie Olivers Food Revolution (March 26)
Farmers Markets
Planting my garden
My in-laws visit this summer

mmmm... orange brownies? sounds fabulous! (how did you get the orange flavor in them? just extract or something else?)

I agree, Food, Inc. is a great film that everyone should see. I'm looking forward to reading some of Michael Pollan's books as well.

I just found you via your response on "use real butter" concerning her waffles. In your comment you mentioned that your old waffle iron "shit the bed"! I gasped out loud! I thought only my dad (gone for several years now) and myself were the only ones who used that phrase! What a hoot to find someone else!!! This made my day!

(And I loved/hated Food INC. Loved it for the truth it brought forth. Hated it for the same reason. Now I'm accountable for what I know, and it has really made me angry. Lots of changes goin' on here cause of that movie!)
