I've been thinking that if I don't post again soon, you're all going to think that my last post was a suicide note. So, rest assured, I'm still alive and well. Just buried in tomatoes.
We got our first frost last night and it is CHILLY! There's still a lot to be harvested from the garden, and between that and having to do a lot more work than I'm used to for RB's program, time is at a bit of a premium for me right now. But I am slowly trying to make the rounds and leave some comments, and eventually I'll be back on track with my own posts. I hope...
Before I get back to chopping tomatoes, on another very grave and important topic, I heard some news that rocked my world this morning. Maybe you heard it too.
THE EASY BAKE OVEN IS LOSING ITS LIGHT BULB!!!
That's right. In the interests of preserving our already crippled environment, Hasbro has redesigned the classic first kitchen appliance of aspiring little chefs to include a proper heating element and more cooking space. The light bulb is being phased out! It's great news for 4 year-olds who are concerned that the 100-watt hot spot surrounded by some nominally warmer-than-room-temperature air might dry out their souffle before it's puffed up properly.
For those of us more worried about what an entire heating element will do to the moistness of our tiny round spice cakes, the jury is still out.
