It has been lovely here the last week, so I shouldn't complain, but it is overcast and darned chilly this morning. It is also spitting rain. BLECH.

Thier, not a morning person is a VAST understatement. I try very hard not to be a crabby pants when I first get up, not always successfully. My kids learned very early in life to ask "Has Mom had her coffee yet?" before asking me to do anything in the morning. They have had some pretty funky hairdos precoffee!

Hee hee...Funky hairdos! I can picture that. I am in complete sympathy. I used to wake up and stare at the wall or into space for a while in the morning when the kids were little, and I remember them mentioning it...Just couldn't get in the groove. I think it's a blood sugar thing, actually. We have sugar issues in our family...

Hit me again middie, I can feel the brain cells starting to fire up. I was just reading lutzzz's recipe for Clam Chowder and I think I will make some of that today. I am sure my kids will gag, but hubby and I will enjoy it. Not sure I dare to use my mandoline (see recipe in Soups) though, last time I did, I nearly removed the tip of my thumb!

Alix, don't you have a safety holder for your mandoline? You shouldn't use it without one.

I sure do thier and I use it religiously because I am something of a clutz with knives (Lots of bits of myself removed ) HOWEVER, my hands were wet and my thumb slipped, I managed to yank myself back but not QUITE in time to save myself completely.

Thanks middie. I am ready to rock now. What should we prep for lunch in the cafe? I will start that clam chowder, what else do you think we need? Maybe some fresh french bread?
