      I’m sorry too, I wish that shipping something this large wasn’t so expensive to get to other countries besides Canada! But I do appreciate your kind thoughtfulness!

    I’ll have to come back. Heading off to my new job cooking and demonstrated at a local grocery store. So far it’s been fun. I get to do my own recipes (and hand them out, too.)

    I get to channel my “inner Roz.”

    Today? Shrimp sauteed in ghee, sprinkle of Old Bay seasoning, a touch of garlic, a few good squeezes of fresh lemon, and a sprinkling of parsley. If I wasn’t doing it for a demo there would, no doubt, be a splash of white wine 😉

Unfortunately, I could not find the RSS subscription box on your new blog (senior moment?) but did look around :). I love pumpkin anything, so please enter me in your contest. Even though I spend most of my time in Italy, you could mail the prize to my sister’s house in Pa. and I’d bring it to Italy personally. Love the teapot too…so if you could direct me to your RSS feed box on wordpress I’d really appreciate it. Thanks!
