Great food should be judged by the company it keeps! When I read this quote I knew it would be appropriate for a future blog and here we are…Food Blog #27-Herbs, Spices and Flavorings. I cannot recall a time in my life as to when food has been such a HOT commodity as now.

At the WOUB Public Media offices we’ve often joked that if someone wanted to kill off the entire staff all they’d have to do is leave some laced brownies in the lunchroom. It would take us all down by the end of the day.

Like most office staffs, we like to eat.

If you’ve spent any time in a media organization, you know that food comes second only to our other vice - coffee.

Many of us are anticipating the upcoming extended weekend as we prepare to celebrate and honor Memorial Day 2014 in the United States of America. Just some of the activities may be: cookouts, graduations, parades, vacations, barbeques, time for home and yard improvements, picnics, family reunions, class reunions, remembering our loved ones by adorning grave stones with flowers, local and national performances honoring our fallen and current military service people, snoozing in your hammock…AND…MOST IMPORTANTLY a time of reflection and remembrance.
