I finally announced the name of the winner of our Easter basket drawing. Her name is Marjorie, and she made a sweet card with a large cross on the front. I’m waiting for her to return my email so I can send her the basket.
As for the rest of my day, I made a big batch of potato salad for dinner with our friends tomorrow and finished icing cupcakes to give to a close friend. After making a horrible mess in the kitchen, I cleaned and called it a day. Spent the rest of my day reading and watching videos. I’m a video junkie, and even if I don’t have any interest in the project they are making, I still like watching. It used to be that way with the Food Network, when they had half-hour cooking shows. I could watch those all day, even if I never had any intention of cooking whatever they were making. I guess Food Network decided people didn’t like to watch those kinds of shows any more, and now have all kinds of competition shows. I don’t really care who beats Bobby Flay or which little kid can make a gourmet meal without burning themselves to death. Somehow the Food Network has become a spin-off of “Survivor.” While I’m ranting about the Food Network, whose idea was it to pair Martha Stewart with Snoop Dog? Are you kidding me? Times are definitely changing, I’m not sure if it’s for the best.
On an up note, I hope you and your families have a wonderful Easter.

I laughed out loud at your references to the Food Network. I was the exact same way, totally addicted to watching all those half hour cooking shows, such as Rachel Ray, Everyday Italian, Barefoot Contessa and Paula Deen. Now, when I turn on the Food Network, I can’t find a single show I like. It seems to be a marathon of competitions. Who cares how fast you can cook?! At least with the other shows, once in a great while, I’d try to make one of their recipes. Are Pioneer Woman and Tricia Yearwood still on? Sigh … It was my guilty pleasure.
Every once in a while I see Trisha Yearwood and like her, but that Pioneer Woman freaks me out. She’s got fifty kids, a huge ranch and rental properties, and has to drive a hundred miles to the grocery store, but still has time to make meals for the “hands.” Kind of makes me want to smack her…too much?
