Channeling the Sweathogs

Anybody remember Vinnie Barbarino?  Wha?  Wher? Who?  Why?

We've got our very own Ethiopian version now.  I just want to tell the boy that he doesn't have to FAKE stupid, because there will be plenty of times in his life when stupid WILL happen.  (Just as in all our adolescent lives!)

For now, I concentrate on getting him to AT LEAST add the T on the end of "WHA?" to not SOUND ignorant.

Also, this morning, Lee and I were talking about something unrelated to the children.  Yordanos says from the other room, "Mom, I can HEAR you."  I said, "OK?"  She answers back, "I know you were talking about us."  I say, "Why do you think that?"  She says, "You said 'whine and complain'."  Lee then says, "You know, you're not the only people in the world who whine and complain."


It Takes a Village


2 Moms had to get
5 kids from
3 different families from school to home to
2 different functions at church and
1 Mom to a meeting.

Mission accomplished.  Moms rock!


New Website... testing... testing...

I wanted a place to put my recipes and whatnot related to cooking.  I'm by no means a great cook, but I have learned to use spices and can now make flavorful and healthy food.  (The two are not mutually exclusive.)  I try to give the caloric info when I've got it.  I'm in love with Weight Watchers, so I try to give points info too.

Join me here to try some new recipes, and let me know what you think if you try them.  Email any recipes you might like posted to newcooking(at)gmail(dot)com.

Chris :)
