  • Tiffin

    I somehow found this article yesterday while I was mindlessly surfing a few minutes away. It's an interesting story about India's tiffin-wallahs in Bombay who transport some 160,000 hot lunches (tiffins) from family homes to the offices and schools of hungry husbands and children and then perform the same in reverse with the empty lunchboxes.

  • Birthin' Babies

    We went to our first childbirth class last night and despite promises from the books and friends, there was no “miracle of life” footage in the film we were shown. Shucks.

  • Rarebit Risotto

    For dinner last night, we broke out the new cookbook Kelly gave me for Christmas, Moosewood Restaurant's Simple Suppers.

  • Wanna Buy a Country?

    Matt, dear hubby of mine, is the *king* of bizarre internet stuff. I get weird links from him usually at least once a day … strange articles, silly jokes, bizarre pictures. So a couple of years ago, he sent me a link to the world's smallest country, Sealand. It's a fort 13 miles offshore from […]

  • Wi!??!?! Oui!!!

    I think it happened last Tuesday. Or maybe it was Wednesday? I can't remember. Matt picked me up from work and we stopped by Target on our way home to pick up something for dinner. Matt has been coveting a Wii since they came out in November (prolly before), but since we didn't pre-order, we […]
