I did somersaults in front of the U.S. Capitol


But wait.  There's more.

I heard from the team at Share Our Strength late last week, and guess what?!?!  In just three weeks, you all have donated more than $15,000!!!  So, not only have we exceeded the $10,000 goal, this means that one of you will win dinner for four at Alinea.

This campaign continues until January 16, so you have until then to donate if you haven't already.

Coming soon:

My experiences cooking from the Noma cookbook; and

A video of me dancing to The Michael Jackson Experience on my neighbor's Wii.

But for now, a heartfelt THANK YOU.

Back soon...

The ground looks hard ... and cold.

Jilly says great, impressive!

And you did them to music from the Gilmore Girls!

You may still be dizzy, but you are still AWESOME!

Love the matching hat and gloves--they're so cute!

carol, you are a rock star. I get dizzy thinking of how you inspired the internet to donate more than $15,000 toward such a great cause. I wouldn't have known about Share Our Strength if not for you and this blog. Talk about using your powers for good...you should be the model for bloggers everywhere.

Will we see $15,000, $17,500 and $20,000 milestones? There is still over a week to go and you doing something ridiculous is always great motivation. :-p

Awesome! Also, that video made me want to watch some Gilmore Girls. Which is also awesome.

  • I'm cooking my way through the Alinea Cookbook. Because I can. I think.

  • Your comments and questions are welcome. However, please think of this web site as if it were my dining room table, and make sure your comments reflect the manner in which you'd treat someone in their home, as if you'd only just met them and were sitting across from them, sharing a meal. I've got thick skin and can take constructive criticism (because ultimately, we all learn from it), but nasty, rude, grossly off-topic, attacking, baiting, or blatantly self-promotional comments aren't welcome and won't be posted. It's just not cool.
