I Feel Newly Married!!

I had such an enlightening and youthful moment this evening.

I felt newly married.

I made a fresh supper.

It has been so long, I got reacquainted with my lovely dishes, pots, and utensils!

DIP1 and YBS are home, and I have run out of edible leftovers, hence something fresh.

actually, while scouting around for a specific Tupperware to put my lettuce in, I happened to glance upwards, and noticed it under some Tupperware cereal boxes. Upon opening the container, I discovered the fat free/whole wheat/splenda mini blueberry muffins (thanks G6, sorry I don't know how to link) I made a few weeks ago. I had wondered where they had gone, since I know I didn't eat all of them. I also looked at them for a moment or two, because I didn't recall icing them. with white, fuzzy icing. Oh well. I then decided I really needed to cook something new because the fuzzy white mini muffins are a testimonial to the food situation in our kitchen.
(I gave the cleaning lady two rolls on Thursday which DIP1 insists had mold on them, but luckily my lenses weren't in, and I shouted at Juana "YOU SEE MOLD??? LOOK GOOD??" and I just slapped on some tuna. her husband hasn't come to complain she is sick so I guess all is okay. whatever. mold=penicillin=free health care for illegals, so whose complaining??)

So I defrosted several half opened packages of chicken and made a yummy dinner. actually I just cut up carrots, sweet potatoes, onions, zuchinni, and red pepper, threw the chicken on top, sprinkled on seasoned salt, and baked. yum:

DIP1: Fleishigs? what is this, you cooked? something fresh? what's wrong?
YBS: I hate vegetables
DIP1: I had fleishigs for lunch.
YBS: I hate vegetables. But I like onions. I love onions. and Potatoes are vegetables. But not sweet potatoes
Me: Look at all those vitamins! swimming in chicken fat because I didn't have time to skin the chicken!
(okay, this is a little personal, but since I didn't skin the chickens, I also didn't remove the "end" of the chicken, like the "bottom" body part)
Hubby: yum, you left on the betzelshe, my favorite (gobbles it up)
Hubby: nu, nu!
DIP1: you made a bracha already???
Me: can you even make a bracha on that part of the chicken? it's fat and skin. fui
YBS: these onions are great, thanks ma
DIP1: I really wanted a pizza bagel. and when you spice chicken, dear mother, you have to put the spice under the skin so it has flavor.

this is a complaint of DIP3 who removes the skin on other occasions when I don't have time to remove it, and shmears the de-skinned chicken with skin reversed so the spices go on the chicken flesh.

at this point we are all milchigs already. thankfully. I found a string cheese.

If you have a problem with illegal immigration, why do you employ illegal aliens, thus taking advantage of the fact that they work cheaply? I believe many Jews call this "chutzpah." Do you think it's funny if they become ill because of your carelessness? I believe many human beings call that "sick." It's Elul. Look in the mirror.

do you understand when someone's being funny? i believe it's called "a sense of humor"

"...fat free/whole wheat/splenda mini blueberry muffins"

With a mangle like that, I'm THRILLED that you don't know how to link. If any of your readers wants to eat not-overly-unhealthy NORMAL Blueberry Oat Muffins, the can follow this link to my original, un-butchered recipe.
And if you had kept the muffins in the fridge where they belong, they'd have been gobbled up ages ago... long before any "fuzzy icing" appeared. {Loving Eye Roll}

I agree with anonymous: it was really not funny.

And I agree with the questions, about illegal aliens...

who are you people??
new readers? go read the new york times. or the wall street journal.
people like you shouldn't be reading blogs and then not having the gumption to sign your name.

and there was no mold on the rolls. and I exaggerate, it is my writing style.

and I b'shita don't look in the mirror in Elul, I might be overwhelmed by my beauty, build up my ga'ava, and have a hard time doing teshuva because of it. but thanks for your helpful and encouraging comments.

welcome, anne of numme or whatever british isle you come from, hope you post comments again

Why is it funny to abuse someone's position like that? Would you do it to a Jew?

I recall an interview in which a Nazi was once asked if he didn't feel bad cramming Jews into cattle cars. He said not particularly; he'd worked for some Jews when he was younger and they'd treated him no better.

Don't do unto others, etc?
