baby Callum turned five months old yesterday.

I’ve been playing a bit with Blosxom. It is a very cool weblogging program that stores entries as text files (so that you can use a text editor to make an entry) and uses directory trees to indicate heirarchy. I have a few unused domain names that I wouldn’t mind putting online – I might use Blosxom to create these sites.

Newman’s Own makes some pretty good pasta sauces. The Hot & Spicy and Sockarooni sauces are the best of the lot, I think. They serve well as a base for a good sauce – if you add some meat and some vegetables to these sauces they manage to maintain their spicyness. They go especially well with cheese tortellini, I find. A lot of the cheaper sauces out there end up tasting like bland, mushy tomatoes and ruin an otherwise good meal.

that is all.

    YAY for BABY!

    You might want to try the Mario Batali sauces (not dissin’ Newman, he ownz too (I need to beat the l33t out of me) but Batali makes a great sweet garlic and fennel sauce that is just awesome it manages to lack the Jar taste.

    Can we put the sauce on the baby and have him for brunch?! 😀

    No, seriously, you should be punished for having such a cute kid, dude.

    The only Newman’s Own I ever tried was a Caesar dressing thatw as just awful. Way too much Worcester sauce. Might want to avoid that.

    I make a garlic and fennel-based sauce from scratch, myself. But I agree with about sauces, though, I too like the Newman’s Own (once you add stuff to it).

    Very cute baby pix, btw.
