Happy Friday! For me, Memorial Day Weekend tends to mean one of two things: camping or house remodeling. Two years ago, we repainted our master bedroom (I say we, but it was really Jeff, because I clearly did not inherit the gene that provides the hand coordination necessary to put the proper amount of paint of on the wall…I try and try, but it turns out terrible). We (and by we, I mean Jeff) failed to line up the lovely camping spot we enjoyed this time last year, so we’re playing hooky today, but then we’re digging in to (drum roll) our kitchen remodel!
I’ve been doing more recipe development, and want to start doing video, and Jeff was recently bitten by the bread-baking bug (even stone grinding our own flour at home), so we have very rapidly and dramatically outgrown our small kitchen. Plus, I’ve always hated the tile countertop we inherited when we bought the house. I want that thing to die! We’ll be removing a wall, installing a few new cabinets, having new counters installed, and Jeff will be painting. I’ll be sure to take photos of the process for periodic blog updates. I’m so excited!
In the meantime, here are some links:

My latest column for The Seattle Times is on nutrition for osteoporosis. It will be in the Sunday print edition, and should be posted online any time (it’s late going up this week). If it’s a topic that interests you, keep an eye on my website home page (in the “Latest Seattle Times Columns” section about 2/3 down the page) or my Seattle Times author page. Have a happy, healthy long holiday weekend!
