    Just a note to say, no, your ELC diary posts are not boring at all. I'm enjoying them!

    Ah, I see that Rancho Gordo makes some chili oil too, not just beans!

    Since you seem to like keeping tab on what you eat, you should check out I've been using it, it's kinda fascinating. Not in a eat local way, more in terms of balance of the dieat. I did not know I lacked vitamin E!

    You know that expression "the exception that proves the rule"?
    You are allowed to cheat. It makes your devotion to your cause more intense.

    Awww - for me? You're so sweet Sam. I don't think you're crazy, it's interesting to see how well you're able to keep the commitment and what creative ideas you've come up with. Keep it up!

    P.S. - I also love Rancho Gordo's ground red chile - it's hotter than most - like cayenne only more flavorful.

    Oh, and have the candy if you want it. You've earned it!
