It was a busy weekend.
There was a 5k walk for the Heart Association.
The Greek Food Festival! Sadly, I forgot my camera, but can I tell you how amazing a baklava sundae is?
And then today, my friend Rachel, her brother Andrew and I set out for a farm tour. We saw cows, sheep, chickens, and turkeys.
Is it bad that I immediately thought of Thanksgiving dinner when I saw these birds?
I came home from our last stop with a rosemary and oregano plants. If you’re ever in Madison, Fla., you must stop at O’Toole’s Herb Farm.
Needless to say, I didn’t cook a lot this weekend. But here are some weekly news tidbits.
* The latest research is saying that 1 in 3 adults will have diabetes by 2050. This is kind of scary since I have a family history of diabetes and love sugar.
* The history of candy and Halloween from the Atlantic. I was trying to figure out what my favorite Halloween candy was as a kid. At first I thought snickers, then a friend mentioned Reese’s cups. There are also Kit-Kats. Too many to choose from! Am I forgetting any?
* The state of organic food and the confusion surrounding it, also in the Atlantic. Are you noticing a trend in my reading habits?
* A Washington Post profile of D.C. chef Frank Ruta, who owns the restaurant Palena and also did a stint as a White House chef.
OK, time to go. Enjoy the last few hours of the weekend!
