Sometimes when God...

Gives you a blinding migraine at 6:00 am, she schedules a episode of Nigella Bites. The worst thing about getting a migraine when you wake up is that the Execedrin (caffeine in a pill) is the only thing that can take the pain away. And that means no jumping back into bed because you are awake and jittery. THANK GOD for the Style Network's early morning episodes of Nigella Biters. And I think it is one of three Nigella's I have not seen. It's the slow food one where she roasts not one but TWO huge slabs of meat in the oven. I won't do a formal recap but in her second meal, she roasts a huge leg of pork with the skin on. I'm not sure whether I'm delighted or horrified, but she ends up serving the crackling pig skin as a side dish to the roast pork. Yes, Nigella SERVES PORK RINDS. Albeit pork rinds with an aromatic garlic-chili rub.

In other news, my work gave me a hoodie. It's soft and warm and I look positively adorable in it.

When I first started watching Nigella, I didn't get it. Then after a drink or two I got...and you're right...it's food porn, and I think she was my first. She was making a cheese sandwich, took a bite and pulled it away from her mouth, her hair got pulled in and she slowly pulled her hair out and the cheese was all stringy and the focus was soft on the camera.

It was incredibly hot. And girlfriends got curves and I love it! Meow!

Sorry for the headaches, I totally can sympathize.

The Mrs. and I are addicted to Excederin (you're right about caffeine in a pill). We buy the biggest bottle we can find -- I believe a 750-count bottle. It doesn't take long to go through it.

Jon,

The hoodie reminds me of your wife's story of your courtship and the fact that she wore a hoodie on your first date. Not that I would look that cute.
