Shaun, I think I need to come visit and eat some of your wonderful cooking...especially your french bread...I think you need to give up the computer stuff and start a bakery/restuarant...of course that would take a lot more time. but you could set your own hours...and travel a lot more.

I grew up eating "Goldie" meals, and for you to beat her is a huge achievement...something to be, well I won't say proud but, "well-pleased" in. Congratulations, it's awesome. If you ever feel the urge to mail a loaf of french bread our way...

Great job!!! That if so impressive you beat Goldie!! Wow! I think you should open that bakery, resturant with a photo shop attached to it. You can take pictures of people and then feed them!!! What a deal! I know I would frequent that place!

Yumm! I had no idea that you were such a great cook. I remember going to Anna's second birthday party and you bar-b-qued for us. I better not go to your restaurant- I'd end up blowing my diet/healthy eating I started recently. But I'm sure you could make some great healthy food as well!

Hey, we just got back from camping and I used the campstove by myself for the first time. I started out by scrambling some eggs (it was breakfast) then frying some fish that had been caught the night before. Then I was feeling comfortable at the stove and started to fry some bananas that were getting mushy. They tasted great! I almost started frying some apples but I was needed elseware. Cooking on a campstove is fun!

I just realized that "cookstove" is different from "campstove" duh. I was wondering how you made muffins on the campstove. Or better yet- how you canned with it. It's 11:30 pm so I need to go to bed.
