When I was in New York in October, I attended the Wall Street protest and participated in a march for single-payer health care. I don't want this to turn into a political blog, however I know Occupy Wall Street got a lot of crap for being made up of "uninformed liberal hippies," but I just want to say that everyone I talked to there was extremely educated on all the issues and passionate about the cause. It was exhilarating and empowering to be a part of the movement!
Here's the really random and exciting part... my photo from the rally ended up in Glamour Magazine! My friend sent me a link to this photo asking if it was really me, and I couldn't believe it. I've never had anything like this happen to me before- I was really shocked. So if you open up a copy of the New Year's edition of Glamour Magazine, say hi to the face of this blog!

Anyway, sorry to toot my own horn, but I just had to share this with you guys! I will be posting a couple new recipes this weekend, but in the meantime have a happy Friday!
