Committee interrupts unscheduled hiatus to wish everyone a happy Saint Valentine's Day

May your own tiny banquets be festive and delicious. For this one day I won't say anything judgy about the wobbly heart-shaped splurts of raspberry coulis that adorn plates all over the nation in honor of the holiday.

We've been too busy as of late to even read blogs much less update this one; after you've read this little greeting why not check out some of the lovely blogs I link to in the column over on the right-hand side there?
