Sometimes I feel like I’m just phoning it in.


There’s nothing like the internet to make you feel inadequate.

And while I consider myself a relatively good cook, photos of the latest trend in baking shared by a friend are making me doubt my commitment.



Because, to be honest….



This type of magic never occurs in my kitchen.



I can’t even blame it on not having the time…



Because that’s something I have plenty of right now.



So all I can say is …. stop.



Stop making the rest of us look like slackers.




Now you’re just showing off.

I admit, it made me look.


I walked by my window the other day and had to do a double take.

Across the road on our neighbor’s organic vegetable farm, the seasonal workers were weeding a garden patch. Most summers there are Mexican field hands, but because of the new immigration policies of He Who Will Remain Nameless… this year the workers are Jamaican.




Now, I’ve never been to Jamaica.



But I’m going to go out on a limb here…




And say this isn’t their new fashion trend.




Yes, that is what you think it is.








With a hole in the middle for your head.




I particularly like the fact that he flipped up the cut out hole section.. and left it there. Like a pot lid.




Jamaican cardboard hats.

Coming to a mall near you?



Remember… you saw it here first.
