These Foolish Things Remind Me --
At lunch time today, I found the refrigerator lacking in leftovers, having consumed the last of several "I'd like a to-go-box, please" meals yesterday evening. I'm currently involved in a much needed sorting/trashing/cleaning activity in my stamping/crafting room, and didn't want to take much time out to prepare a meal. When I'm on a roll, I'm on a roll.
I did spy a partial jar of Marinara Sauce in the frig that needed to be used soon and so I decided to have pasta, the skinny, quick cooking variety.
After the pasta had boiled for the recommended time, I tested a strand or two to determine if it was ready. That simple task reminded me of --
Why should cooked pasta remind me of her, you might ask?
If you never played, or your children never played, any of the Carmen Sandiego games, you missed some funny, but educational playtime. If you are familiar with the elusive Carmen, you will, of course, remember one of her henchmen -- Al Dente!
OK. I'm up and away -- back to the craft room.
Tomorrow is also a day.
