Michelle and I had the good fortune to sample slices of Salumi’s Mole Salami this past weekend at the Slow Food chocolate event.

Breadless Cheese Bread!

Saturday, November 12th, 2005

I ran into a cute set of images on a livejournal site today. A day in the life of monstro involved drawing the wonderful catch of goodies from the grocery store instead of taking a picture.
