Yes, this is a food blog; no, I don't intend to make it anything else. But I simply can't let yesterday's events go unrecognized. Never in my life have I been prouder to be part of this country. I'm simply overjoyed that the racial barrier has fallen, and that we have elected Barack Obama as our next president! Yes, there were some bittersweet moments as yesterday's results rolled in -- most notably, the passage of proposition 8 in California, which I simply cannot understand -- but in all, November 4th 2008 marked a historic event in our nation's history, and it's certainly cause for celebration!

Happy post-election madness to all of you!
