Life is Sweet

Peapod showed up late last night, so I didn't have my Greek yogurt until this morning. It was worth the wait.

I'm really looking forward to the weekend. My tastes in food, just like my tastes in TV viewing are, ummm, eclectic. So Saturday is my day for channel flipping. I start off with Showbiz India, then move on to The Soup. After that, I watch almost all PBS cooking shows for the rest of the day, or at least until the movie of the week comes on either HBO or Starz.

Here's some of my "must see" Saturday fare:

Farmer's Almanac TV--not a lot of cooking, but some interesting food facts, and production information. This week, they will discuss cheese making. I can't wait. : )

Colemeco's Food Show--Mike Colemeco tours various restaurants or locations, and eats. Then he goes back home and either tries to duplicate the recipe, or crates one that is similar, but simple for the home cook. His studio is very plain (may even be his home kitchen for some shows) and he does all the cooking himself. Nothing like watching most of the glitzy Food Network shows.

Christina Cooks--Vegetarian cooking with Christina Parillo. Watch carefully, you may catch me and the Mrs. in the background in one show. Christina provides a lot of philosophy, and education in addition to simple recipes.

These are just a few of my favorites. I'll chat about some more later.

So I guess you have your own TV...since you seem to control the remote. And exactly how much of what you discover do you put to use in your kitchen?
