Heather says:

As usual I used to pick this week’s winner and it was lucky commenter number 1 aka Jenny. Jenny Jenny I got your number, check your email, I’ll be looking for your address to mail you my review copy of Food & Wine’s Reinventing the Classics.

Food and Wine Reinventing the Classic Giveaway WinnerThis week’s Sunday confessional?

Mostly I just want to know why minor calamities always happen thirty seconds before company arrives? My 7yo knocked over the jar of enchilada sauce I was saving for tonight’s dinner over when he went into the refrigerator for a glass of milk. 3 cups of tomatoey, chili powdery sauce all over both the interior and exterior of the fridge, the wall and the floor.

Naturally there was a knock on the door just as I was elbow deep into the clean up.

Does this happen in your house to, or am I just lucky?

The actual confession, it’s not a big one, but the don’t have to be. I’m just grateful for the neighbor kids and friends who come over and distract my kids so it’s not Mom, mom, mommy, mama all the live-long day.

What about you? Anything to get off your chest?

    It's Tuesday, so I'm a bit behind, but I'm using the holidays again this year to try new dishes out on my family. I don't have the time or the patience to try them during normal times, but the holidays just scream at me to try something new. This Thanksgiving: baked pears with raspberry sauce courtesy of Jacques Pepin.

My mother woulld have thrown it all out, but this same lady grabbed another bowl and dumped the salad in it Dinner saved, but not by me.
