The clouds are moving in and temps should drop like a rock as this system brings us a rain/snow mix. Mr. Snaps is bugging me to make a decision about another fountain he wants to install this spring. I should just rename my house "Aqua Land".

TOTD: Using the old school food groups of Meat/fish/fowl, Dairy, Grains, and Fruits/vegetables you must pick one from each group to eat for the rest of your life. Assume that you won't get tired of it and that you will get a complete complement of nutrition from whatever four food items you pick.

What are your four foods?

Probably fruits and vegetables because the range is so wide, and I'd be less likely to get tired of it. A close runner up was grains, because I'm totally addicted to quinoa.

You get to pick one thing from each food group.

I'll have a pan of paella every day please, with a side of red wine to include my fruit, and a bowl of ice cream for desert to cover the dairy.
