A Few Thoughts

At the moment, I'm reading "Eat Pray Love," about a woman who seeks spiritual renewal in Italy, India and Indonesia. It's a great read, but I do object to one thing. When the author decides to learn Italian, she enrolls in an evening class at a local continuing education program -- which she derisively refers to as "night school for divorced ladies." We know better, don't we?

If you're interested in following in her footsteps, check out the Italian classes through the IUPUI Community Learning Network or the Indy Foreign Language Academy.

In other news, last night I used one of the recipes from my recent Frasier's cooking class: raspberry fool. It's layers of macerated berries and fresh whipped cream, and it's absolutely divine. Who knew I could make such a fabulous dessert? I take back most (but not all) of the bad things I said about cooking classes at Frasier's Gourmet Foods.

Finally, I checked a few blog statistics yesterday, and we're rapidly approaching our 1,000th reader for this blog. Thank you so much for your interest and enthusiasm!
