I am a recipe wh*re

Hello, my name is Tracie and I am a recipe whore! I LOVE finding new recipes online and trying them at home. I am constantly printing recipes and filing them in an enormous 3 ring binder. I try to plan menus every week so I've been pulling out a few new ones to try. I'm limited by a very picky child (Liam) and by a daughter who at least tries whatever I cook, but will complain if she thinks it is the least bit spicy. I am blessed, however, that she does eat tofu and some other "weird" foods that are not normal kid fare. So while the kids are napping and resting, I've been reading my daily blog dose and searching for some new things to try. It's funny that when we got married, my mom was thrilled that I married a man who loved to cook and now I do most of the cooking. I used to hate it, but now I really do love it (all of it, not just baking!)

Mark got some diction software for his mac recently that will type whatever he says. It weirds me out because I'll be running around the house and will hear this deliberate tone of voice and very clearly enunciated words coming from the dining room as he talks to his computer. The first time he used it I thought he was just talking to himself, which in a way he is, but at least it is helping him get things done. I cannot, however, imagine a world without keyboards where everyone sat around with headphones and microphones talking to their computers. It would drive me nuts!

Last week I experienced some guy standing beside me, browsing the cheese case, and I thought he was talking to himself about paint colors. Instead it turned out that he had one of those tiny clip-on phones in his ear.
I don't think I'll ever get used to that.
We need to start a campaign: Save the Keyboard!
