what's for dessert?

why not choose an oreo? the venerable cookie is celebrating its 100th birthday next week. try it with milk, or in ice cream, or in a milk shake, or double stuffed, or triple decker, or dipped in chocolate, or just by itself. cookie perfection.

what's for lunch?????

homemade chicken salad (thomas wilhelm's recipe!) on baguette and a diet ginger ale.

Wang Shu, a 48 year old architect whose architectural practice is based in Hangzhou, The People’s Republic of China, will be the recipient of the 2012 Pritzker Architecture Prize, it was announced today by Thomas J. Pritzker, chairman of The Hyatt Foundation which sponsors the prize. The formal ceremony for what has come to be known throughout the world as architecture’s highest honor will be in Beijing on May 25.
In announcing the jury’s choice, Pritzker elaborated, “The fact that an architect from China has been selected by the jury, represents a significant step in acknowledging the role that China will play in the development of architectural ideals. In addition, over the coming decades China’s success at urbanization will be important to China and to the world. This urbanization, like urbanization around the world, needs to be in harmony with local needs and culture. China’s unprecedented opportunities for urban planning and design will want to be in harmony with both its long and unique traditions of the past and with its future needs for sustainable development.” (via)
