Two very important food events are coming up:

February 4, 2007: I don’t watch or follow the Superbowl, but I sure love a good occasion to binge on my favorite appetizers. This year Bella requests my mom’s Brie cheese, salmon log rolled in pecans, and a cheddar cheese ball from the market. Apparently my daughter loves cheese. I’m thinking about making those pigs in a blanket or sweet and sour meatballs. Guacamole with Kettle organic blue chips? Now we’re talking. Might be a good day to watch Gone with the Wind also. Anybody have especially good appetizers to recommend?

February 25, 2007 : The Oscars will hosted by Ellen DeGeneres this year. This is one annual T.V. event I probably couldn’t miss even if I tried – considering that most of 2006 was spent watching every movie that might get a nomination with my fiance. This event requires a more of a meal – but something that might take more time since we’ll be sitting around most of the evening. Maybe mandoo (Korean dumplings) or spanakopita (Greek spinach pastries in phillo dough) or bin dek ttok (Korean mung bean pancakes)? Haven’t made any of those time-consumers in a long while.

Hmmm. I’d better go eat dinner – I must be hungry!

Six solid hours of good thesis work done today. I’m really starting to believe that I might finish this thing. Getting very very close.
