CT WPF MarqueeAllow us to start your day’s preparation with some food-related quotes.

Barring that, they will make you chuckle on the way through the gate….SEE YOU AT THE FESTIVAL!

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”
― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

“The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.”
― Julia Child

“Humor keeps us alive. Humor and food. Don’t forget food. You can go a week without laughing.”
― Joss Whedon

5thAnniversaryIf you’re like me, these last few hours are the most difficult.  What with the constant mouth-watering, the vain attempts to control intake to save room for plenty o’ samples, the inability to sleep and the compulsive urge to blog…I’m sure you know how I feel.  But enough about me, Here, watch this great news piece from WABI featuring Patrick Myers, some of our local bakers, AND the lovely and multi-talented Sweetie Pie, and then TRY to get some sleep, for the Festival comes tomorrow!!
