I've used my convection oven a few times now... it's awesome! It takes only a few minutes to preheat to over 400* & I love the reheat feature - stick the food in, press one button, & it's ready in less than 15 minutes. I have a feeling I'm going to be using it a lot!

A Christian's Food Manifesto: this is an interesting read on the food that we were meant to consume, & how the food we consume today is not like its counterparts from Bible times. Long read, so if you want the summary, scroll to the bottom.

"There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today, but only about 200 of them have been tested for safety. That’s because the Environmental Protection Agency can only require safety testing after there is proof that a substance poses a health risk under the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 — the only major environmental regulation that has not been updated. Only five chemicals have been regulated since the law was enacted. As for getting rid of a dangerous substance — well, under the 1976 law, the EPA wasn’t even able to successfully ban asbestos, a known carcinogen."
