Mrs. Ukraine

I had lunch with Mrs. Ukraine today. We met at a local place known to have good sushi. I ordered a box lunch or some such. Several things come on a square plate. I had teriyaki chicken, rice, orange slices, California Roll and some green hot paste. Mrs. Ukraine ordered a sushi variety, trying to entice me in. She ordered eel, roe, urchin and something else equally gross to me. She was so happy to see me, but I had a hard time eating my own food, and little interest in sampling hers, though I tried with a smile and ate some yummy crab thing.

She knows my Argentian friend Maria and wants to have lunch with her next time, too. We picked a Greek place to meet at as she has never had Greek. Now there is a meal I want to eat. Chicken and potatoes and green beans and tzaziki are for me! (Lamb, NO!) I do not think of myself as a picky eater, I have just eaten enough in my life to know what I like and don't like.

I did survive being wrapped in a blanket and sat next to a roaring fire on the hottest night of the year. I survived countless refills of wine, vodka and cognac. Mr. Ukraine is trying not to drink Vodka anymore and his Dad inUkraine told him he is "A Soft American Pussy."

Todays challenge was called faux embossing. You are supposed to stamp on paper with white ink and then stamp the ame image almost on top of the first image in the same color as your paper. Some people made really cool cards, but mine does not look embossed. I covered the faux background with the turtle image from Inky Antics and some ribbon, and the card looks good after all.

Tonight I am off to a home show for "Taste Of Home" which is a cooking magazine. Let's hope I spend very litle money as I have no room for more kitchen gadgets and I would rather spend my money on craft supplies anyway. Plus, I hate cooking, my kids are so unappreciative.

Mmmm--Greek food sounds so good right now. Lots of yummy garlic and olive oil.

The comment by Dad in Ukraine cracked me up! Next thing he knows, his son will only be drinking water and ice tea.
