Pretty in....plaid?

Well....what do you think? I wanted a change from the brown, and we all know it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind right? I can always go back!

Well....another week went by without word from the county. Feeling discouraged. I applied at a few other places to, but no call backs yet.

So far school is going well...I think. English is a lot of work, and despite her claims to the contrary, am finding my teacher not to be on top of her correspondence. She always takes a week to get back to me and I do not like that! She had each of us in the class make a blog specifically to respond to the different assignments we're doing. She wants us to respond to each other's blogs as well. I've looked at all 30 of them, and the only time someone has left a comment it is guessed! No one else has responded yet. Am I missing something, or am I the only diligent student? Frustrating. Have to write a summary of "The Monument and the Bungalow" today. That should be fun....not!

The nutrition class is interesting in spite of my teacher. He is really difficult to take notes from. Luckily I record him on my little Sony recorder. I'm not sure if that will help or not. The only homework we've had with him is reading. He assigns 2 chapters to read every week. This is about 60 pages. Luckily I like to read and I like the subject matter.

I wanted to share a recipe with y'all (not southern, but I'd make a good one I think...although I don't like heat!):

Corn and radish salad

4 ears of corn

6 radishes, halved and thinly sliced

1/4 red onion, sliced thinly

1/2 to 1 whole jalapeno, seeded and minced finely

2 Tabl. fresh lime juice

2 Tabl. extra virgin olive oil

sea salt & freshly ground pepper

Cook the corn on the cob in a large pot of salted water for 12 minutes. Drain and cool. When cool, slice the kernels off the cob and put into a medium bowl. Add radish, onion, and jalapeno to taste. In a small bowl, mix the lime juice and olive oil together and pour over the salad. Salt and pepper to taste.

I have added a touch of soy, and some sugar to this as well, so if you feel you'd like to, be free to experiment. It is a nice summer salad. Cool and refreshing. I like it cold....
