So what the heck brought about this flavor explosion, set off on this poor, unwitting salad? Fresh-baked cornbread muffins, mostly. I made this a while back, right after the ice storm and power outage -- I think it was a combination of the desire to celebrate the fact we had power and just bask in the warm glow of central heating, filling the house with just-baked goodness. Isn't that just pure, instant Prozac -- the smell of something baking in the oven, whether it's bread, muffins or cookies? It's warm, sweet and comforting. It lets you know something really good is about to happen and you're in the safety of your own home to enjoy it.

And for no other reason than to be silly, enjoy this The Office/Battlestar Galactica meme. I stare at this every day, as it's the background for my computer screens, so maybe that's why I always have beets on my mind. And yes, I totally can't wait for Emerald City Comicon in late March, because Fact: I am a Big Fat Nerd.
