If you had taken any of the things that I have said in the history of this blog….especially my fears and traveled back to my high school and repeated them….they would have laughed and laughed. I wasn’t afraid of anything…..don’t tempt the Universe….you will lose every time. Did this happen after my kids were born?….or after my mother died? I am not sure and it drives me crazy! I am such a chicken.
There is a party up north for my little cousin who graduated med school this year, the debate this week is….do I drive or ride with? I am leasing a soul so I can actually drive out of my 1/2 hour comfort zone.
PT invited me over to dinner tomorrow……I will need it! After the drive to and from the kids will be glad to get rid of me! I lived up north for a while, through both pregnancies actually. We moved a little closer to home when I was 6 months pregnant with the girl….she will be 17 next month…that was a long time ago and boy am I old! I am just not used to driving in bigger cities. Even when I lived up there I used the park system instead of the freeways. If I get too lost someone can talk me through it and more than half of the drive is turnpike and that’s easy peasy.
I have chopped my way to calm tonight…..work still sucks in a completely hostile way. GB grew some pretty amazing eggplants this year and since he shared I have a large pot of caponata simmering right now. The publication that I found the recipe that I mostly followed is this one, and it’s available again this year….
The caponata or lemon basil eggplant salsa type concoction was very popular last year, so when someone offers you eggplant…..always say yes. I will make eggplant parmesan with the rest and who doesn’t love that?!
Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend…….Zia
