Look what's growing in my window at work...


cilantro, oregano, marjoram, basil

I guess I don't have a green thumb after all. Okay, that's a lie. These little guys are round two of my attempt to grow plants. The first take didn't take. So with a little coaching from my gardening-love'n co-worker I got the little guys to sprout! Happy day!

I must say, there is something about being the author of life. Even if it is for a few simple plants. The little guys are growing up so fast!

Milk or Refried Beans?

I have a friend...we'll call her "Josette." She always poses the question, "Which do you prefer more - milk or refried beans?" If you're like the majority of the world I'm sure your answer would be milk. If you're a bit of a strange cat then your answer would be refried beans. Here are my qualms with her ultimatum:
  1. Milk and refried beans don't even fall into the same category of food
  2. Regardless of what Josette says, I don't even think Mexicans eat refried beans. I'm pretty sure the beans they eat are not refried...or even fried once for that matter. But I could be wrong...
  3. Milk is more versatile then refried beans. You can find an application for it in nearly every meal.
  4. Refried beans have a limited amount of uses: side dish (usually with melted cheese on top).
So here is my question for you:
Have you ever ate mayo by the spoonful?

she's a bestie for sure.
