About ten years ago I gave up caffeine...for a few years anyway. Then I slipped back to the dark side. I'm thinking it's time to de-caffeinate again. I read somewhere recently that people should drink hot water and lemon (on an empty stomach) in the morning instead of coffee. It's supposed to help detoxify your body. I'm gonna give it a whirl...starting Monday.
Don't know when my syndicate will have a new widget available so you can read Between Friends every day here (they're working on it!) ...but you can always go to the Toronto Star site and see 'em there!
I would never lay any claim to being a good cook. I don't even get upset when my kids make jokes about my cuisine. It's done with affection ( I think )...and they do compliment me when I occasionally manage to "hit one out of the ballpark". I just wish the compliments weren't accentuated with such surprise and wonder.
And yet...as mediocre as my cooking skills are...for some reason...everyone STILL keeps coming to me "for something to eat"...
