The Myth of Bipartisanship


One piece of pork, two chronological adults.
You don't want to know what happened when the jar of mustard got involved.

What did you chew on this weekend?  Mustard or horseradish?  Will someone please remind me to put on some make up before being photographed?

  3. No comment on the photo!

    My husband cooked approximately 85 gallons of black beans recently, so this weekend I ate a lot of bean burgers, black bean-yam soup, etc. I'm all beaned out.

  4. Laura, had I known, I'd have sent you some ham to go with those black beans!

    I hear you on being beaned out. We've been eating more of them for health reasons and to cut grocery costs. It's easy to go overboard.

  6. right now i'm listening to jarvis cocker's fantastic mr. fox song (aka petey's song). it's the perfect soundtrack to go with these comments.

    my kiddos and i watched the fantastic mr. fox repeatedly this weekend between foot ball games (war eagle) which is a perfect weekend in my book. i'm usually not a kids movie kinda mom, but i love a good wes anderson flick.

    i chewed and re-chewed a first chapter i've been working on.

  8. Oh MY! You ARE a naughty one.

    Laura, you crack me up. One vegetarian to another, I understand the bean thing. I avoided them by making vegetable pot pies this weekend, and they were so nasty I scraped my share into the garbage when no one was looking, and ate a chocolate chip cookie instead.

    Note to self: wild mushrooms do NOT belong in pot pies.

  9. Great pix! Did you do like the romantics in the movies and keep nibbling until your lips met? :)

  10. Barbara!!! Too funny!
    Amyg - Sophie loves Fantastic Mr. Fox. I've only seen bits and pieces. Like you, I'm not much a kid movie mom. How did that chapter chewing go? Fruitful? I hope so.
    Ah, Darkblack. Thank you for that.
    Glasseye - I would have done something like toss my healthy food and secretly eaten a cookie, too. Would have? Who am I kidding? I do.

  11. jmj - Ah, thanks. I took one or two bites and then relinquished to MathMan's greater protein needs. And then I ate a chocolate chip cookie.

  12. Yes, very Lady and the Tramp of you two...

    Chewing on moving right now...a game of hurry up and wait.

  13. Pork - it's the other white people's meat.

  14. I'm reminded of Chris Rock and his bit on the big piece of chicken.

  15. What? Was it national black bean weekend or something? We ate our share too. And put up Christmas lights. Lots of them. It's not the fanciest display but the little ones think it's the best ever which makes it the best ever in my book.

  18. Pork will do it every time! Just look at what happens to Congress. ;)

  19. Um, maybe it's me, but I grew up in a town where a slight majority of the residents were jewish and I'm pretty sure ham isn't on the Hanukah menu. Just saying.

    Hope you had a lovely Hanukah (and really, who can say no to bacon?).

  20. I hear you on the makeup. Awhile back I had my hair cut only to regret it. I took a picture of myself on my iphone and emailed it to my sister in Canada. She emailed back to say it wasn't "THAT" bad and that I should put on makeup - I already had!
