The 12 Days of Happy - 12th

On the twelfth day of Christmas, it was a better day.   Work went easily, there was a parking space for the SCA council meeting, people were there that I needed to talk with, people were there that I liked listening to, and the traffic lights were almost all in my favour when I left. 

But this made me laugh out loud: "Here's a trick you might try at home sometime: pick almost any recipe in the 'Moosewood' [Cookbook].  Now add bacon."

That's great by itself, but the context is what made it special.  It's in an article by Ariel Levy in this week's New Yorker magazine, in a review of the latest edition of "Joy of Sex."   Where the original "Joy of Sex" = "Joy of Cooking" (or rather, she says, a better analogy would be "Mastering the Art of French Cooking"), and "Our Bodies, Ourselves" = the "Moosewood Cookbook."   

Now, add bacon to -that-. :-)

May you get all the enjoyment you want out of life, and bacon, too. ^_^
