Happy New Year!
I mildly lament not having something a little meatier for you for my last post of the year, but there you are. At least, I will leave you chuckling in the waning hours of 2009.
In 2010, may your life be filled with joy, your heart filled with love, your belly filled with delicacies and your ears filled with foodie funnies. And when they are, shoot 'em my way at eatsdropper-at-seantimberlake-dot-com.
