Ramadan Lantern

I can’t help it. I bought one. I think they are SO pretty. And I bought one for my daughter-in-law, and I bought one for her aunt, and . . . I could NOT resist.

“Red” Vinegar

There is a vinegar used often for salad dressings, for marinades, for braising, called wine vinegar. It doesn’t have any alcohol in it, it is just vinegar, but usually in the Middle East you will find it called red vinegar.

So when I found it at the co-op, I grabbed it. It was dimly lit in there, but I could see that it was indeed red.

Can you see how red it is? Hmmmmm. . . . it’s sort of an odd color of red for wine vinegar . . .

In fact, the color is so wrong that I check the labels – and it is indeed, just “red” vinegar:


I’m not even going to use it. It’s not the same. It’s not the real thing. I don’t need red food coloring.

Motherhood in 2:55

I saw this on Good Morning America, and then my oldest, dearest friend sent me the same in an e-mail. Motherhood condensed into 2 minutes and 55 seconds. Very original.

Every time I listened to it I understood it better! Adventure Man is rolling on the floor!
