Comfort Foods....mmmmm

Arancini is a italian (sicilian specifically I think) dish that is balls of rice formed around a lovely mixture of meat and seasonings. Everybody I've ever met makes theirs differently including myself. Don't get me wrong, I love the ones you can get in any brooklyn pizzaria just fine, but at home I want something that is all my own. I'm sending my lover to work tomorrow with a cache of these tasty little treats (yes, I make mine smaller because I have tiny hands and prefer them this way), hopefully he will save some for lunch the next day as well.

I'm going to post my own recipe here, but I encourage everyone to make these their own way.

Come any closer...and I will hit you with the bat in my car....

A friend of mine phoned me a few minutes ago to tell me that a bum on the corner made her think of me. I'm flattered!! No :) Truth behind this is kinda funny though I'm sure some people might find it slightly offensive.

Bums freak me out. I mean...they totally just irk me. Whenever I'm rolling up to a stop light or sign and I see one, I lock my doors and start fiddling with the imaginary thing in my seat so I don't have to look at them. My lover thinks this it's hilarious that I get so worked up over corner bums.

Stranger things have happened...

Women like to confuse jealousy with feelings of love when it comes to men, however I think there is more to the emotion than anyone realizes. I haven't seen my lover jealous in some time so it rather surprised me when it came to topic last night over our lovely dinner of chicken marsala. It got me thinking late into the night about what it actually is and where it comes from.

Where did I go?

Sometime in the past few months I've managed to elude myself. I don't know if I got tired and left, or if maybe I'm there and just hiding, snickering while I desperately search for something I've lost. Whatever the reason, I just feel down.
