1. Why I love 8:00 on Tuesday nights.
Mostly because Ian & Shelby come and crash on our bed and watch it with us.
That I really love.
10:00 is good too because Chopped comes on. And it's all because of Chopped that I know what quinoa, durian, lychee & sweetmeats are. I know you can't make a proper risotto in 20 minutes...but they always try, fail, and then are admired for trying.
And then usually chopped. You know, because the risotto was underdone.
You'd think the contestants would have watched the show to prepare, right?
Like Survivor. So you know how to play.
You don't make risotto, you don't forget an ingredient, they love ice cream, and never feed red onions to Judge Scott Conant. Duh.
2. Random puppy cuteness.
We really did eat it. Monday with supper.
I just thought you should know.
(I had to throw out the other asparagus. I bought more and then actually cooked it.)
4. To the kid who drank Ian's Izze juice at lunch while he got up to get a spork for his applesauce...
I know who you are. And even if you grow up to find the cure for the common cold...you will always be the boy who stole Ian's Izze to me.
5. Random West Point fact for today.
Women were first admitted in 1976. I was 6 years old.
And now I feel like a dinosaur.
6. Yesterday I hid a bag of Golden Oreos from my children.
And when I say children, I mean Ian & Belle.
Can you guess where it is?
Back to class Luke...study hard!
