Mission statement: Please leave a creative message at the beep... and try some of my recipes. Well, at least read the titles and intros for a few giggles ;o] Chosen profession: Domestic Engineer Current employment: standing on corner holding sign "will food for work" Volunteer: Sunday school (ECF) teacher - 7th grade. Family, church & friend oriented. Music: too much to list... just know that I loathe gangsta, Yoko-Ono's stylings and what is up with fusion - I don't get it. Sports: take me to a baseball or hockey game and I'm a happy camper. ... and hobbies: too many to list. For fun: really really really no... really bad puns - seriously, I'm just a goof-ball. Books: Fanny Farmer cook book is cute light reading for any good domestic engineer. I love my Nourishing Traditions cookbook. I have done a complete 180 on milk. I now LOVE LOVE LOVE Ice cold raw whole milk, and renounce soy milk completely, though I will still joyfully eat tofu - overlooking the health detriment that it imposes. Pet peeve: When people say 'these ones' or 'those ones', instead of saying 'these' etc... "Ones" is expressed and is not necessary. The word 'utilize' is over used and over-rated. The slang word "UM".
