Come over to the Dark side. The Sith are having their turn today. It seems the dark lords are just as popular as the Jedi knights and the light. We found some great dark side items for all Sith lords to use in the kitchen too. Try this one on for size:
You know you’ll need that apron while making smoothies and blending soups, or whatever a Sith might do with an immersion blender. The little ones always leave the power on when removing them from the liquid!
Or how about keeping track of how long those cookies are in the oven? Or that egg has been boiling away to make it soft-boiled? This watch actually has a time and alarm built in!
And don’t forget to protect your hands when handling those hot dishes out of the oven. This mitt is perfect for the job.

I didn’t feel like doing much of anything today except watch football. I spent very little time on the computer and napped a lot. However, one thing I did do, because it always makes me happy, is cook. Nothing fancy or hard, just tasty food that will be dinner all week long!

Today was pretty much a day off for me. I went to see Bard College Women’s Volleyball in a Tri-match, (three schools, three matches), The first match started at 10 am and the last one finished at 5 pm. Why? My daughter is the head coach!
