There's One Born Every Minute

A had photos taken in her taekwondo school in full uniform. I only had the pictures taken so she could be on the wall of the school with the rest of her class. That was it! I was only spending four dollars. Uh huh.

Last night, I went to see the proofs. They were so cute. I just wanted to buy an 8x10, but the minimum price for a package with an 8x10 was seventy dollars. I ended up purchasing the proofs and the negatives instead. It was cheaper than a package, but still more than I wanted to pay. But they were so cute!

She doesn't know I purchased them. For Christmas, I'm getting one made into a big poster for her. Shhhh, it's a surprise.

One time, when SJ was two months old, I got his pics done. The 16x10 was free. The rest cost money. I made my husband go with me so I could stick to my guns. He ended up being a bigger sucker than I am! Nothing in life is really free is it - except bad advice?

My tasty tofu cooking class was tonight. I learned that soy raises your good cholesterol in addition to lowering your bad cholesterol. (I knew it lowered bad but not the other.)

The two recipes I got weren't bad, but for fifteen bucks, I could have purchased a whole cookbook.

The teacher also brought a block of pre-baked sesame flavor tofu. I LOVED that. I went to the store after class to get some, because it was so good. It cost almost five bucks and it wasn't even a full pound. AAGH! I thought my husband would love it, but he turned up his nose. So did A and SJ. I will never get this family to try healthier choices. Just load them up on the lard and starch and they're happy. In fact, A would just like me to put a funnel in her mouth and load sugar in it.

This is my fault. I have been bringing the crap in the house because I like it too. My family needs to find the nearest 12 step program.

Boots snuck off again last night. J was taking out the trash and when she opened the gate, he took off. She called him and he wouldn't come back.

I drove around the block and nothing. I decided to try one more time and got lucky. The next time he does this, maybe I'll take him straight to the vet for a good snippin'.

Well my feet hurt and so do my eyelids. It's time to go to bed. I will post my sweet and sour tofu stir fry recipe later.

Teddy got his school pictures back yesterday, and MAN! :-) There's no way people who take pictures of that boy aren't going to make money off me.

Sounds good! Your husband liked the spicy Thai tofu, right? Maybe it's just the sesame flavor he objected to? I like to buy plain tofu...

He's not a huge fan of anything soy unless he is having miso soup, which he loves.
