    It’s not really fair that you cheated and said “both” for rainforests and redwoods. That was a very hard decision for me to choose between. Do you happen to live near any redwoods?

    The solid dark chocolate bunny sounds so yummy and brought back good memories from my childhood. I used to eat the ears off first. How about you?

    Ewww, I agree that pickled beets are digusting!

    • April 8, 2009 12:42 pm

      i ate the ears off first too! isnt that the way its supposed to be done? 😉
