I Won! I Won!


...a bottle of Acai Black Currant syrup in a giveaway from Food Finery! I promised to do something fancy with it, and that will come later. At the moment, I am enjoying it in a glass of cheap shiraz. Really takes the edge off that gasoline flavor... Mmm. Thanks, Food Finery!

As if you haven't heard me gush enough about Green Flamingo Organics, here are a few more reasons to be jealous of me for volunteering there:





That's all I managed to capture on Saturday before my camera ran out of juice. Silly me, forgetting the extra batteries. I didn't even get to shoot the aquaponics pond that my husband and I dug (partially). Do you guys remember when I showed you all the carpet remnants heaped in our backyard? Well, an aquaponics pond was the plan. The carpet would have lined it. But we're in a sad, sad state of flux right now, and don't know whether we'll live in the same house come the end of the month. So we're digging one at Green Flamingo instead. I am still super-mega-fun-time-happy-excited about it, and I promise not to forget the batteries again this coming weekend.

Six days left on the 30 Rock TV Dinner challenge! What are you guys planning? Or would you rather surprise me?


Beat the eggs. Whip the cream. Show no mercy.

Mmm Acai Black Currant. Great idea to sweeten up with wine. Totally behind on my 30 Rock so not sure if I can be at the top of my game. Now Mad Men, Trublood, or United States of Tara...those could be fun ones too!
