I don't even like cream of wheat and I want a bowl of what you've got there!
Does everyone get this grumpy every year, or is this year especially bad? I hear everyone saying it, see everyone writing it. Weary of winter, ready for a season's change. I feel better, just seeing that it's March on the calendar.

I think there is something in the air--I've heard a lot of grumpiness and unease circulating. I think the tough economic times and the long winter have contributed to all this.

Let me know if you try the Halva--it's so yummy!

I think that grouchiness is REALLY going around this winter, a viral nasty mood thing. I'm feeling surly and snarling these days, actually.
Those recipes look lovely and Lenten - I want to try that bread!

I'm glad I'm not alone, beck, although sometimes it feels that way!

They are totally Lenten--and scrumptious. I'm reheating some of the semolina pudding right now, for a mid-morning snack.
