Off to bed I go. One thing I know is that with all this cooking and food and eating (as healthy as it may be), I need to be getting up and getting my exercise in before work. Food preparation, along with dinner and parenting, takes up all of my post-work hours these days, so I gotta get up and be active early. Yet another reason that I can't wait for it to warm up around here!
