Hi everyone and Happy New Year! I wish I had some fabulous photos from an exquisite dinner celebrating the arrival of 2010, but alas, all I’ve mostly eaten since last Tuesday is chicken soup. Yes, I got hit with the flu. Swine or seasonal? Hard to know, but with a four-day fever and congestion, it’s either one or the other. So you’ll forgive me if I didn’t much feel like cooking or eating — and I think you’ll thank me for the lack of visuals.

I still have a few saved drafts I’ll be working on over the next few days, so you’ll see new new blog posts, and guest blogger Katherine Curry says she has a few things up her sleeve, so even if I can’t get out for new reporting this week, you’ll get your small bites of Small Bites. Stay tuned.

And with that, here’s what people were talking about over the weekend.
