Welcome to Sunday All Day Brunch. This is an open topic thread so help yourself to the goodies and sit a spell and let us know what is new with you. I watch very little television. In fact the only time I watch is when my cooking shows come on PBS especially on Sundays.

When I lived in Illinois I was in PBS heaven over the weekends because I got both the Chicago and Milwaukee stations so I could pick and choose my favorite shows. The current Sunday lineup here though has some of my favorites and I can cook around the world. It starts off with America’s Test Kitchen and Cooks Country. ATK is probably one of my favorite cooking shows and I have DVDs of about 6 seasons.

After good old American cooking we start traveling around. The next show is either Greek or Irish cooking depending on what they feel like showing. We go then to Lidia’s Italy in America. A cooking show I fell in love with in Chicago is Rick Bayless Mexico One Plate at a Time and he follows Lidia. We then go to Martin Yan’s Hidden China. I have been a huge Martin Yan fan for many years and saw him at a live cooking demonstration when I lived in California. He is just as manic in person as on his show. The station just recently put on John Beck’s Country Table so now I can learn to cook Southern style from a master. He isn't too bad on the eyes either.

So that is going to be my Sunday. Kick back and relax, heat up some stir-fry I made tonight and watch some of my favorite chefs cook. I can get used to this relaxed, laid-back, Southern, retired style.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
