My first tomato

I was ridiculously excited to spot my very first tomato when I was watering the plants the other day. It's still tiny and green - but it's still a tomato! I'm feeling very smug about the fact that I haven't managed to kill the thing - and the solid week of 40 degree weather (with humidex) didn't help matters much.


If there's one thing I like even more than decorating/design/watching Josh do all the heavy lifting/dirty work...it's FOOD.  It felt like Christmas came early last month when my friend Sylvia gave me FOUR fantastic cookbooks (one Jamie Oliver and three Barefoot Contessas)...drool. Thanks again Syl!

As it's getting late, I'm going to keep this short and end with some great food quotes from my Oprah magazine, starting with my fav by A.A. Milne:

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"

"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"

"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully.

"It's the same thing," he said.
