I recently read to description of a home furnishings line as providing "contemporary heirlooms." Isn't that inherently oxymoronic? Heirlooms can't be made in China, they are handed down or inherited. Silly ad men.

This will be the first in a series of posts on things I like. Narcissistic? Perhaps, but since I'm fairly sure I have only one regular reader, I'm not going to worry about it too much.

#1: Alfredo Sauce
I attended recently a luncheon with Baroness Emma Nicholson, MEP, who spoke on her work with several Middle Eastern countries on behalf of women and children's rights as well as the extension of the rule of law. Unfortunately the main course was a soupy, bland mixture of penne, asparagus, pistachio nuts, and Alfredo Sauce. It required a generous treatment with salt to make it palatable. Reader (just one), this was not alfredo. No, the true alfredo is rich, buttery, and delicious. As a tip for University Catering, I'm attaching a link to the a decent alfredo recipe (and also because life is too short for bad food). Bon app├ętit!
