Not much to do about food....

Today's post has nothing to do with this picture...but I love my kitties...and I thought this was such a cute picture... I just had to share!!

This post, unfortunately, is not going to focus a lot on food... I know, I'm sorry, but that's just how it goes sometimes.  Don't get me wrong.. I have a bunch of stuff in the "works" - i.e. half finished started posts, and I should really be posting one of those...but today I have other things to talk about, so you are just going to have to bear with me here :)

(Picture, respectfully stolen from Nibble Me This)

First, please make sure to stop by Nibble Me This before Thursday, March 31st.  Why?  Because, Chris is giving away a copy of "The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches" by Susan Russo, that's why.  So go....well finish reading this post, then go.  There are three ways you can enter to win....and good luck!!

(Lauren and Marcos...aren't they cute???)

Second, one of the girls I work with (Lauren) is getting married next February.  She and her fiance (Marcos) are of course trying very hard to keep costs down for the wedding as they are also trying to buy a house.  UGH... The cost of weddings is outrageous and I can't imagine what a dent this will put in their pocket.  BUT, they are a smart couple and are doing whatever they can to try and cut expenses.  They have also entered the Crate & Barrel "The Ultimate Wedding Contest".  This is a chance for them to win $100,000 for their ultimate wedding!  I was so excited for them that I couldn't help but ask wonderful and loyal readers.. to please oh please oh please go vote for them.  You don't have to sign up for anything, all you have to do is be a Facebook other strings attached, I promise.  And voting takes seconds.  So please, if you have a moment stop here and place your votes.  Lauren and Marcos will be forever grateful (and so will I)!

And, last but not least, don't forget to check out my Fire Day Friday post for Mediterranean Grilled Chicken.  It's one you don't want to miss.  And, since we finally are speaking about food, if you haven't seen yesterdays guest post from Michael of Me, My Food and I, make it a point to go there now (click here) - Michael made a fantastic orzo salad that you'll be thinking about all day....and me.

Have a great weekend!  Ciao!
