Well, it's 1:30am and I can't sleep......I have a busy day tomorrow and am just thinking of a million things.....thought I would share a couple of them with you web people:

I was wasting time on the internet the other day and came across this great website. It had a recipe for Black Bean Soup and I had all the ingredients....so guess what I made yesterday? I put it in the fridge and enjoyed it today for lunch with my friend and my cleaning lady....we all agreed it was DELISH.

Mary, the cleaning lady said "if you added cliantro this would be even better" and we all agreed.....

After reviewing that thought today (I can't sleep remember?) I was hit with this High School memory: in 9th grade English we had a "technical writing assignment" to write out "how to" do something. One option was how to cook something and so I talked it over with my mom (since I was in 9th grade and wasn't cooking a whole lot) and I wrote out Spaghetti sauce or something (damn that was a long time ago)....one of the steps was to "chop and add cilantro"....I nearly failed the assignment because my teacher didn't agree that the recipe would have cilantro.....he kept me after class to discuss it and everything (because he was Italian and just knew how to cook everything).....well it was MY recipe, and I added Cilantro (well, Mom's recipe and SHE liked Cilantro).....the spelling was correct, the steps were easy to follow he just didn't want to use Cilantro?????

Well, this is just one of 587 reasons (which I might list one day) I hated High School......that AND:

I had more than one teacher suggest I would not be successful in life due to my performance in high school....

my cleaning lady would probably disagree.....she liked my bean soup.

I can't think of a single thing that you have ever made (that I have eaten) that wasn't just plain nummy! English/cooking/high school teachers be damned!!! hahaha. (And I do use cilantro in my black bean soup, which I think you've had. Personally, I could live with or without it!)

LOL! I'm guessing that the top five of your List includes the phrase "Well, in the real world . . . "

I remember you rolling your eyes at that, and telling me that if all your teachers were so sure that "in the real world" things would be so different, then why were you wasting your time here in high school??

If they could see us now, huh?
