Cheeses Explained by Laura Calder



Laura Calder of French Cooking at Home fame has launched a series of videos from Paris.  The one above explains the different categories of cheeses very well. Although she doesn't go into the sheep/cow's milk cheese difference at all, this is a good video to help you put together a cheese course.

Bon appetit!

Venice Eye Candy



Lower picture is of a door knocker. The little fellow looks like he is bobbing up out of the water doesn't he?

Days are shorter, the cold is setting in, everything in our yard has frozen.  Time to go inside, literally, and do some gardening there. Fall and winter are ideal seasons to cultivate our internal garden.

As I was reminding myself to call my meditation teacher to enroll in the advanced meditation course in November, I learned on FB that Deepak Chopra and Oprah are offering a 21-day Meditation Challenge.


Paolo Coelho says: "When you want something, the Universe conspires to give it to you."  I took this as a sign to sign up... to both courses! And when you sign up to the Chopra meditation course, you get a cute door hanger template to print out.

Do it!
Did you do it?

Namaste,
