Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my previous post! I am having fun reading all your guesses! From hotel inspectors to a traveling circus, all the speculation has been very entertaining. If I ever reveal what it is that we do, it's going to be quite anticlimactic compared to all your fabulous guesses.
Have you heard the excellent news? Ricki from Diet, Dessert and Dogs has been chosen as one of five finalists in the Well Fed Network’s Food Blog Awards for her amazing writing! The official name of the category is "Best Food Blog: Writing." This is no shocker because Ricki's writing is witty and captivating. Whenever I start reaching the end of her posts, I start pacing myself to make them last longer. You know, like when you're eating a piece of chocolate and it's so good that you start swirling it around in your mouth because you don't want it to end? Kind of like that. Oh yeah, and then there's the food porn and the fabulous recipes. And let's not forget about the adorable puppies (they can even type!). Oh, did I mention that Ricki has a SWEET contest going on? Oh yes, Ricki is giving away Ritter Sport peppermint chocolate bars! Chocolate, I'm telling you! If you are lucky enough to live in the Toronto area, then you can also win some of Ricki's amazing home baked goodies from her upcoming cookbook. Check out Ricki's blog and click here to vote for Diet, Dessert and Dogs! Update: Voting ends Saturday, January 24th at 8 pm EST.
Moving on to some non-sweet edibles, I saw that Erin (Vegan Homemade) made some fried quinoa and it looked so good that I got a serious case of the copycats. So that's what we had tonight, fried quinoa with veggies and TVP bits. Thanks Erin for the scrummy idea! By the way, I need to buy me a wok so my clumsy hands don't spill quinoa all over the stove top.
Random Food Mention: I'm a big fan of scones, and biscuits, and biscuity scones! That's what I chose to call these stove top thingies - biscuity scones. Or does sconey biscuits sound better? Anyway, the idea of stove top scones came from Baking for Britain. I made mine with whole wheat flour, flax, baking powder instead of baking soda, and no buttermilk, so I don't quite know if they are scones or biscuits - or neither!
Random Road Picture: Want to see something freaky? This picture is another one of our very many Yellowstone National Park pictures. It's a very steamy little cascade in the hot springs area of Yellowstone. Is it just me or do you see a freaky face there?
Nothing? Here's what I see...
Anyone? No? *crickets chirping* Must be time to go to bed then! Happy Friday! :)
