  •  Happy Friday the 13th! (12+ / 0-)

    I hope none of you suffer from paraskevidekatriaphobia.

    It's 64 now, supposed to get pretty hot today; at least high 80s. It's hard to imagine what Colorado is experiencing right now. Water from the sky? Inconceivable!

    I have to venture out in a few to pick up some necessities at the market (like chocolate, wine, eggs...)


    I don't think of chocolate as a regional thing (should I?) though I suppose,  if I did think about it, I might determine that I like the European stuff best. Valrhona is mighty good, and I think chocolate should be at least 75% dark for optimal enjoyment. But any chocolate will do in a pinch.

    I've been a superstition defier since I was a child and found black cats to be unfairly maligned. I decided that, for me, black cats were good luck. I would walk under ladders if nobody was working on them (I think that one is more of a common sense thing). I open umbrellas inside (the better to dry them off, my dear). I once broke a mirror on Friday the 13th (not intentionally) and the next 7 years were a blast. I do try not to spill salt.

    I don't have my own kids, but I would totally let my nieces take over my kitchen, except all they make is desserts, which could be a problem. And they have to be ordered to clean up.

    I know a couple of people with wheat allergies, but I don't think they are full-fledged celiacs. I can't imagine having that kind of dietary restriction. I see the gluten-free flours and baking mixes in my King Arthur Flour catalog and have wondered if they are any good, but everyone I know who avoids gluten tells me there is little out there in the way of gluten-free products that they find enjoyable.

    Someone feeling wronged is like someone feeling thirsty. Don’t tell them they aren’t. Sit with them and have a drink. - Lemony Snicket
