It's Saturday, it's snowing and we're at home with a bulging larder and a full wine rack.
Normally that would delight me, but we've got a charity event to attend later. It will be fun to dress up and see my husband in his tux. It will not be fun to slog through the snow.
If that's not your cup of tea, here's a chance to support a worthwhile charity and have fun too, without even leaving your computer.
It's time for Menu for Hope, the food-blog world's online fundraiser that supports the UN World Food Program.

I urge you to participate in any way you can. Last year, I donated a prize and bought lots of chances, winning a gift certificate for luxury food items.
This year, I plan to buy still more chances. But it's not just about winning something, it's about being a part of something bigger and helping others. It's a chance for food bloggers around the world to work together.
It's also time for the Well-Fed Network's Food Blog Awards. Read more and nominate your favorite blogger here.
Welcome to December.
