Well, it's finally here! April Food Day looks like it's going to be a huge success. All day today, I was getting e-mails from bloggers and others, asking for links to the websites, the April Food Day logo and copy for their blogs. If you still want to participate and need any of that information, please click here, where it is all listed. I have a big grant due tomorrow and am pushed to get it in by 5:00!

On the April Food Day site, there's a list of participating blogs. I know that this only represents a portion of who is posting about April Food Day. Everyone has a slightly different take on their post, and it's so interesting to read them. If you know anyone who has posted, but isn't on the list, please let me know.

For my contribution, I am emptying out a copper pot where I dump my change. The last time I checked, there was about $260 in there, so I am going to donate half of that to Feeding America, and half to the Maryland Food Bank, here in Baltimore.

Chris at Easy & Elegant Life and I send our deepest thanks and appreciation to everyone who has posted. The need is great and the time is now... and you have helped make this project a success. Thank you.
