the paving of Colorado

This used to be a farm. It is now some bare land separating condos (in rear) from the LaQuinta hotel and parking lot. This wonderful old farm machinery (whatever it is) is a feeble attempt to be cute, but it just looks sad and incongruous next to the cars and macadam. I am back in NJ, frantically cooking for the start of Rosh Hashanah and a house full of family for dinner. I made a noodle kugel yesterday: good ingredients, but somehow it didn't come out as well as last year's. With all this travel, I've lost my touch in the kitchen. Egg noodles, apples, raisins (soaked in bourbon - I'm out of rum), eggs, sugar, cinnamon...should be good, but isn't. Or maybe it's me. Everybody in Colorado that I met has just lost 30 lbs, so I figure if they can do it, so can I...starting two days ago. South Beach Diet - but enough about THAT. Just taking a minute to post before I order supplies to be shipped to the John C. Campbell Folk School for my workshop in October. There is only one space left in the class, so if you are coming and have a friend who wants to come and play - act FAST! Sorry to have been away from this space for so long, but I've been so busy in the last two days catching up with business e-mails and chores that I haven't even had time to pay bills, let alone post. Thinking of all of you, though. I promise to post during the 2 weeks I am here -- even if I have to make something up - LOL

If you are trying to lose weight, maybe it is a good thing that the noodle kugel isn't as good as you would like it to be. It sounds delicious.

The one space left is suppose to be mine (sniff, sniff). That was my goal back in the spring to attend. If you can, please share pictures of the landscape and buildings. But mostly, have fun! :)
