Hello persimmons! To counteract the still chilly weather (I biked to work in a toque and gloves!) I thought I’d cheer us up with a giveaway, for your choice of one of the neck-fanciers above. We’re getting really close to being at 100 subscribers (which makes me really happy), and so the giveaway will work like this – you leave a comment here if you’re already a subscriber, and then have one new person subscribe and leave a comment letting me know who pointed them to Miel et Cannelle. You’ll get two entries for being a loyal reader, and the new person will get one. If the new subscriber signs somebody up they’ll get another entry. If you’re a long time reader but not a subscriber, now is the time! Exciting and complicated, and void where prohibited? Just joking. Just exciting.
In other news, Jared made this last night from “Everybody Loves Sandwhiches“, (thanks to Kate at for me, for you for the recommendation!) and it was incredible. I had a small mini stroke and thought it called for 2 bay leaves instead of sage leaves, so I messed up and did that.. But dudes and dudettes.. It was amazing. We had it with baby artichokes from the Italian Centre all covered in olive oil and lemon juice and a bit of garlic.. The man is turning into quite a cook, though he’s markedly more…meticulous… than I am. Which may be why everything he makes is so consistently good.
And last but not least, Bon-Voyage to my mom, who, like any good teenager, is running halfway around the world (but with a different trajectory) for the second time this year to meet a boy .. Well, my dad. *smile* Remember mom: Don’t leave your drink, don’t smoke anything, and for lord’s sake don’t carry anything across customs, no matter how nice a story they tell you. I love you, and have fun!
