A Food Post

The person who figured out that you can cook sweet corn in the microwave without doing a single thing to it ahead of time was a genius. Microwave for 2-3 minutes, let it cool for a few minutes, and take the husk off. The silks come right off with the husks. Brilliant!

I'm short on things to blog about, so I'm blogging about food. Yes, I guess I am an emotional eater, or whatever they call those people who eat when they're happy, sad, discouraged, encouraged, etc. Homemade pizza which I hardly ever make anymore now that my nest is empty.

I baked a silly cake during the first World Series game, and it didn't help the Rangers at all.

When am I going to learn that if I have zero expectations, I won't be disappointed??

Blogging and Baseball

I've pretty much been neglecting this blog of late. Most of my blogging energies have been on my family blog (see link on right).

Tonight I'm sitting in the living room watching Game 2 of the World Series, swapping Facebook comments about the game with friends, and realizing I could could be blogging on this nifty netbook while watching the game.

I'm too old to be bragging about my kids, but they all had good things to report recently: Andrew scored well on the GRE and really well on the writing section of it. Rachel had a good week getting caught up on things in general. And David emailed us today saying he had won 1st price for his poster at the grad school symposium and that prize actually had $200 attached to it.

Ouch, this game 2 is getting UGLY! I hope the Rangers do better when they get back to Arlington.
