And the winner, with the noshstalgia voters, is:

Thanks Michelle at Honest and Truly for sending in your delicious photo for everyone to drool over. I have a question for you, did you finish the 40# box of bananas? Heh. Drop me an email with your address and I’ll send you some chocolate.

Actually thanks to everyone who has sent in photos and helped spread the word via twitter and blog posts. I enjoy seeing what everyone is making and it inspires me to get off my duff and cook for goodness sake!
This weeks prize is Chavrie Cheese and Alouette Cheese! I’ll be sending the winner coupons for a wedge of Brie and a package of Fresh Goat Cheese, you’ll thank me for it I’m sure.

And then of course fall is here, nights are a bit nippy and trees are dropping golden leaves faster than they can blow away. The gardens are winding down, it’s time to pick apples and dig potatoes. I picked some onions the other day and made a fairly cool onion braid, with all the onions I have I will be making quite a few more.

The youngest boy is turning 4 on Thursday. When we asked him what kind of party he wanted he answered, honest to God, “hmmm how about a Titanic party?” I gently explained that I thought it was best if he picked something happier. He thought about it a while longer and said “Ok a Bismarck party” Bismarck ring a bell? Largest Nazi warship? Yes, he heard the song on YouTube with his older brother who really enjoyed it and they sing it all the time. Its a good marching song. Unfortunately the video is filled with swastikas and we had to resort to listening and not watching. Again I had to gently prod him on to happier themes, finally he decided on an airplane theme, non-deadly, lethal or otherwise horrendous. Whew. But then again he wants an aircraft carrier for a cake. HA! Cake Wrecks here I come.

I had someone ask for beet advice so beets are a coming in the near future. And can I just say I adore beets, good, I adore beets.

Peace and Love,
