Thoughts of my strange onion blurry-eye fest at lunch got my mind wandering here: http://www.theonion.com/ which actually has nothing to do with onions, crying, or my lack of emotion. There are ridiculous satirical stories which literally make me LOL at my desk (which I sincerely try to avoid because everyone knows laughing is NOT a work related activity). Seriously there's probably not a day that goes by that my brother, father, or BFF/neighbor extraordinaire Emily doesn't send me a link about something ridiculous and amazing (last week's funniest was: Tina Turner burns own legs down for insurance money). If you aren't familiar with the site, I recommend visiting for some hilariousness. It's a gem. Below is a highlight from the week: Cheney Dunk Tank Raises $800 Billion For Nation
For lunch I made Heidi Swanson's Lemon Scented Quinoa Salad.
- lemon (juice/zest)
- red onions
I ate it with black grapes (don't they look like olives in the picture?) anyway the salad was good. It tasted different, as most of her recipes do, but in a good/wholesome kind of way. I will be making this again... probably with less dressing (what with my halving the recipe and eyeballing it.. sheesh)
Happy Tuesday! I laughed, I cried... it's been a good day. Further good-mood-ifying me: I have no class today, it's nearly 70 degrees AND i got to use my lemon zester today for the first time (it was everything i hoped it would be and put my grater to shame).
