I have found my kindred spirit

I don't know how I stumbled across it, but I've found a new favorite blog (and perhaps my long-lost twin.)
It's called, and from what I can tell, it's written by a mom here in North Carolina who has a son about dear Nathan's age.
And from reading it, she and I think very, very much alike about many, many issues.

In case you don't know, we liked food in the newsroom

Of course, Food Lion had no way of knowing this when it sent the samples of its new "On the Go Bistro" line that it would be feeding a bunch of poor journalists, but that's what happened.
The samples landed on my desk just before lunch today and the arrival was announced by Cherish Wilson with "You got a box marked perishable. Open it and let's feast."
So we did.
Graham, Cherish, Joy, Jackie and I all tried some of the foods. While Graham, Cherish and I all ate the Baked Ziti, Mac n Cheese and Baked Apples, Joy and Jackie tired the ziti and apples.
It was all sooo yummy.
