I love onions, onions and garlic. I put them in almost everything I cook. Growing up, I would chop them up really small so my sister couldn't pick them out of her food (sorry C~)! One of the best things about living in Northeastern Nevada is being able to eat a BilToki steak sandwich. They are smothered in garlic and taste like heaven.
I say snide remarks out loud in my head but sometimes forget to keep my mouth closed.
I would love to have a salsa garden, but can't grow cilantro. No matter how hard I try, it always ends up shriveled up, brown, and dead in my window box or garden. It just dies. I've tried inside, outside, lots of water, little water, I have no luck. You can have all of the tomatoes and jalapenos in the world and it won't be salsa if you don't have cilantro.
I look mad when I am concentrating. Even when I'm happy, if I stop to really think hard about something my brow wrinkles, I frown, and just look angry. If I try to remember to smile so people don't think I am mad, I forget what I am concentrating on. On a side note, I can't glare when I want to, I just end up looking goofy.
When I hear a song I like, I play it over and over and over again until I hate it.
If I'm reading a really good book, I have to read the entire book from start to finish all at once. I can't stand to not know how it is going to end. This isn't a big problem if I'm reading a book to the boys. Huge problem if I am reading a grown up book and I need to be productive. I've stayed up all night just to finish a book before. This makes me apprehensive to start a new book. Unfortunately I need to read like I need oxygen.
I never pick a bowl big enough for what I am making. Then I end up with a huge mess because instead of getting a bigger bowl when I realize I need one, I just keep adding to the smaller one until I can't stir whatever it is I am making. Then I try and stir it anyway, spilling half of it all over my counter. If I would have just dirtied another bowl I wouldn't have to spend as much time cleaning up after myself.
