Yup. Life sucks sometimes. Trust me, you don't feel any older or fatter than I do. And finances? Well, we won't even go there.

Sometimes I just wish for good drugs. Wellbutrin, anyone? It's done wonders for my son, but somehow I haven't been able to go there...

So at the end of the day,I try to remember that my life is pretty damn good when compared to so many others -- like the veterans who live in the nursing home at the VA. Some of them are my age (old, but not ancient). They served in Vietnam. They have missing limbs. They have no place else to live.

Okay, I'm done now. Thanks, Nina for giving me a place to put this in perspective and get over my
pity party.


Ditto. I know this sounds a tad cliche but I feel your pain. You are entitled to a personal pity party every now and then....and then sometimes you need to throw yourself a benefit gala.

And yes, JDate should be called JDont. As a 53 year old woman, this whole notion of dating is like a full time job without any benefits. I wish I could hire someone to cut through the BS and then send me on the date.... hey, do I foresee a business plan in my future? ;)

I think 2008 will be your year and deservedly so.

What I'm Reading

What I'm Cooking

  • Cheap Ceviche
    This is almost a mock ceviche because it's made with junk fish (tilapia) and surimi, the tofu of fish. However, with the right amounts of lime juice, cilantro, onion and hot sauce, even cheap fish makes a fabulous ceviche. I chopped up a 1/2 pound of tilapia and combined it with 2 packages of chunked surimi. Marinate in juice of 5 limes, 1/2 red onion chopped fine, and one head of cilantro chopped fine. Add a healthy squirt of Sriracha sauce and refrigerate.
  • Collard Greens
    My CSA is sending us lots of green love in the form of collard greens. Here's my very delicious veggie-but-smoky recipe. In a large pot add 1 cup vegetable broth, 1 cup water. Nice pinch of salt, and 3/4 tsp. Spanish smoked Paprika. Add your chopped collards and simmer gently for at least 45 minutes.
  • Tzatziki Sauce
    Just outstanding on everything. Take a container of Greek style yogurt (no-fat, low -fat, doesn't matter). Grate 2-3 thin skinned middle eastern cukes on a box grater and squeeze out all the water. Mince 3 cloves of garlic VERY fine. Stir cucumber and garlic into yogurt, add a splash of olive oil and a grind of black pepper. Dunk in vegetable of your choice, slather on spanakopitas, etc.
  • Polenta
    Apparently the par-boiled polenta I'm using is considered ca-ca by serious cooks. I've found it to be utterly delicious, especially smothered with sauteed portobello mushrooms. I will give plain old yellow cornmeal polenta a try after Thanksgiving.
  • Hangar Steak
    Grilled in a cast iron pan in the oven, on broil. Remarkably tender and so quick. Salt, pepper and smoked paprika for seasoning.
  • Brussels Sprouts + Corn
    A smashing combination -- the bitter tang of the Brussels Sprouts with the sweetness of corn. Saute with olive oil, salt and pepper. C'est tout!
  • Stuffed Cabbage
    My favorite recipe From the NY Times Jewish Cookbook, made with fresh cranberries and canned cranberry sauce. Total yum.
