I have some ‘connections’ because of where I work and was invited to be on a show on Food Network Canada yesterday as part of the ‘audience’. I had to sign a bunch of non-disclosures so I cannot say anything about it. But OMG, it was so cool! Stay tuned to 2012 when it is aired and I can talk about it. I am sure to be somewhere for a split second or two.

We’re having a dear old friend and his new fiancé for dinner this Saturday; they live about an hour away, so we’ve invited them to stay over. I’m making a healthy meal (stay tuned) and low fat blueberry oatmeal bran muffins for breakfast.
