I thought I had this really super interesting blog post for today...

And now I sit down, and I got nothin'. Sorry. That's happening more and more to me, lately.

Oh, I could rant about some things. There are a couple of things that have really ticked me off today. But, I read this the other day: "A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man holds it in check." (Prov. 29:11)

So, I'm trying to keep it in check. So, instead, we'll go to the Photo of the Day:

Today, there are 2, to cover both yesterday (the 1st) and today (the 2nd). Today's theme: My two favorite things in the kitchen.

Yup. I big big heart EVOO. It's my favorite. When at all possible I use it instead of butter, margarine or vegetable oil. So pretty much for everything but baking and frying. And since I rarely do either, EVOO gets plenty use in my kitchen.

And this...
This little beauty is my new toy. And quickly becoming my best friend.

This, if you haven't yet seen or heard of it, is a Mr. Coffee Frappuccino machine. No, it's not just a glorified blender. It brews the coffee, and blends the drink with all the proportioned ingredients, almost blending as much as I'd like. I have to pulse it a few times afterwards, but other than that, it's perfect. Seriously the best part of waking up.
