Oh my gosh, I read your post and all I could see was "Hugh Jackman". I'm so envious. ;-) Have a great time, and please give a big hello to The Old Foodie for me, I really love her site.

Hi Barbara - Mitchell's right, most of us don't have scales. And those of us that do, the scales are in ounces and pounds, not grams. I'm beginning to think we're the only non-metric country in the world. Of course the right way to cook is to weigh the food, especially with baking. But that's not how any of us learned, so there you have it! We are hopelessly backward when it comes to cooking measurements. The Kitchen Sense book sounds just perfect for the everyday kind of cooking that I do. Thanks for sharing your review!

Hah! If you only knew how little I know about cooking. I stand behind my mom and take notes half the time. That's why I write down all these recipes. I don't think mom has followed a recipe in 30 years. Now that's knowing how to cook. Of course, trying to get a recipe out of her is like pulling teeth... :-)

Hi Barbara - YAY is right! A toast to the end of chemo is definitely in order. I can't wait to meet you and Celine this weekend. Hopefully the power will find a way to stay on? ;-)

Pim, You ARE a rock star. What fun! Talk about the hottest dinner invite in town. Love the clothes. I do hope they let you keep the Missoni.

Wasn't that a good deal, while it lasted? (A few hours) Awesome that they threw in a pumpkin casserole too. :-)

Une tarte, s'il vous plait! Merci beaucoup Vivienne. Okay, that's about the extent of my written French. Sounds like a great trip, and a delicious custard.
