Day 2935: The New Culinary Classics

Classic readers of this blog might assume that this post is about new culinary classics created by my husband Michael, including dinner from last night.

.

However, today’s post is inspired by my classic friend Peter, who sent me this yesterday …

… with the wonderful addition “Finnegan’s Cake.”

Here are my new culinary classics:

  • The House of Seven Bagels
  • The Turn of the Stew
  • Moby Duck
  • Leek House
  • The Rind of the Ancient Marinara
  • The Old Man and the Sea Bass
  • Mushroom with a View
  • Gone with the Wine
  • Tom Soy-sauce
  • A Knish Before Dying
  • The Bun Also Rises
  • The Right Stuffing
  • Travels with Barley
  • The Mosquito Toast
  • The Black Scallion
  • Ketchup in the Rye

I look forward to seeing more new culinary classics in the comments section, below.

To help you think, here is music from Mushroom I mean A Room with a View.

Thanks to Peter, Lorie Ransom, and all the other classic and classy people who help me write these posts, including YOU.

Day 165: Rejection, Schmejection

Here are the headlines:

HEADLINE # 1.

My son is home, recovering well from the spontaneous pneumothorax.

.

HEADLINE #2.

My presentation about my new groups, at a 3-day group therapy conference this weekend —  which I’ve been blathering about for months (here and elsewhere) — has been cancelled, due to low registration.

.

.

When you are upset, down, judgmental, or any other place you don’t want to be, try  this: Distracting yourself.  It works! Here’s proof: Rather than feeling  relief, disappointment, embarrassment, self-criticism,  conference-criticism, pessimism, or optimism, I am now thinking, “What the hell is going on with that cricket? And why?”

Gotta go to the conference.  Thanks so much for reading today.
