In the tradition of an even greater blogger than I, since it's Tuesday, I'm going to take this opportunity to teach you something.
Or not. Whatever.
First, a little quiz (because you know how we LURVE quizzes) ...
The photo is of:
(a) bell peppers
(iii) Paris Hilton
(D) all of the above
The correct answer is ...
I first saw actual cashew fruit when I was travelling in Thailand in the late 90s. Having been an avid reader of National Geographic's World magazine during my formative years, I immediately pointed them out to my travelling companion, "Look, the ground is littered with cashews! Try not to step on them, because uncooked they can be a skin irritant!" We dutifully avoided smashing the cashews on the ground ... but I still managed to burn the soles of my feet later on the SuperWhiteHot sand at the beach. Gah.
Thailand was lovely though ...
I wish I were there now ... instead of at my desk eating leftover cashews from last night's cooking adventure.
And, speaking of my not-yet-arrived Stimulus Check, remember how I said I was going to put the whole thing into savings?
Well, I lied.
I signed up for the summer session of pottery before realizing I had no way to pay for it. Then, I remembered the Stimulus Check. Yay! So, I'll only be putting 2/3s of my Stimulus Check into savings with the rest paying for 10 weeks of pottery. Huzzah!
Finally, to end on a bright note, Tomokito called the White House Press Office and has confirmed that the Stimulus Check will be tax free. I had a sneaking suspicion that we would have to claim it next year. I am glad to have been proved wrong.
