My Mom and I made the Chocolate Ginger Tart featured in Gourmet magazine. It was so rich and velvety and delicious. Yum. D and I are getting ready to take a road trip tomorrow to Washington DC for a few days. We are very excited!

Happy New Year to All!!

Hello readers.
Tonight, I had the great idea to brighten up one of my newer pastel drawings because I was really itching to do some work. Since my studio doesn't have heat-- I set up a work space in the spare bedroom-- what we also call the green room as it is painted...you guessed it- green. So, despite low lighting conditions and small work table I did what I wanted to do on the drawing and was starting to clean up when I pushed the brand new box of beautiful Rembrandt pastels which are so nice and smooth, up to the top of the desk where they promptly fell over the edge and some smashed and crumbled to pieces on the floor. I just sat in my chair for a minute and felt so sad and mad at myself and then I got over it and tried to put them back into there little foam compartments as best I could. Bummer.

We are the People We have been Waiting for.

I wish Tom Friedman would run for president.

He has a great column in the Sunday Times about the forward thinking peeps at MIT and Google putting their brain power into creating sustainable energy and designing hybrid plug in cars.

Right now, I'm taking a breather from cooking two lasagnas in preparation for a fun dinner extravaganza we are having this evening at 7. Outside, it was like a snow globe all day and now there is a dusting of snow against a back drop of twinkling lights. Apparently winter is going to happen this year.

I will post some pictures of the party later.
