Back to my beloved cabbage. This is how I looked while cooking my cabbage. Keep that thought in mind!
I was deep in thought as I was chopping and fixing the cabbage~ that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! The longer the cabbage cooked though I was amazed at how it was shriveling. It looked pitiful. I chalked it up to a bad head of cabbage. I finished cooking it and was distributing it on the plates, and it was terribly stringy and crying out for life to be breathed back into its pores. I was discussing the sad state of my cooked cabbage with my husband when he looked at me and said, "Honey, you put a head of lettuce in there--that wasn't cabbage". Charming. Has anyone ever tried cooked lettuce--word of advice DON'T. I decided I would be brave and eat some, and even with salting and peppering it to death it still was a grotesque slimy little mess. Ick. I did chuckle at myself later! Lesson learned, no thinking while cooking!
Tyler has learned a valuable lesson today. Everything happened last summer to him--it could be yesterday, last year, a few months ago, and its still last summer. He told my Mom today that last summer ( translation: a few months ago) he puked. He didn't eat it though. (shew. that's a relief) Mom went on to explain that he should never eat his puke to which he replied,"oh, Mama, it was just milk and water". See I told you, he learned a valuable lesson-- no puke eating. Although, he came close to it with my slimy lettuce. No worries. I didn't make him eat it or even taste it for that matter.
Tomorrow is the last day of September....where has this year gone?? I remember my 7th grade teacher saying that the older you get the faster time seems to fly by. I'm sure I smirked when he shared this little fact. I guess he is the one smirking now. ha. How right he was!
