Advice Column (aka Don't Do What I Did)

I should write an advice column filled with nuggets of wisdom that I have had to learn the hard way.  My first column would go a little something like this:

"Never eat a plate full of brussel sprouts and expect to have a good time hanging out with friends at a karaoke bar any where."

By the end of last night, I didn't even want to hang out with me.

So much for my new favorite food.  Brussel sprouts and I are going through the big D and I don't mean Dallas.


Holiday Party

Holiday party means showing all of my old high school friends how fat I have gotten.

Hope they still love me!


Non-Husband Dinner

Tonight my husband was not home for dinner, so I felt it necessary to make something he would absolutely hate, and I absolutely loved.

First, I got organic mushrooms and sautéed them in balsamic vinegar, pressed garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Then I had an assortment of olives and roasted red peppers. Finally I finished it off with an array of juiced organic veggies.  After describing my dinner to my sister, she asked me if I was going to stop shaving my legs since I'm a hippy now.

I told her I stopped shaving my legs when I got married. Very little would changed if I were to become said hippy.

After all of the healthy food, I still could not help drinking a glass of wine.  It may have defeated the whole idea of a healthy dinner, but it was white wine and mushrooms....  What sane human would object?

My husband.
