First off ... don't forget about the most recent CONTEST!!!!!!!!  You have about another week or two to enter.


I've been vacant from the site again, I know.  Another flare up, working A LOT, and general feelings of just needing to do nothing ..... yeah, that will do it.  I was also trying to find some current religious holidays to post some good food for, and for some reason, I can't come up with anything.  But, tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, so I thought, what the heck!
