Excellent Appetizers!

For our end-of-year banquet in my sorority, I was asked to make appetizers. I went along with the theme of Tex/Mex and created my own. I wish I had pictures, but I don't... this time. I'll be making them again because they were a huge success!

1. Using a star-shaped cookie cutter, press into soft tortillas. Bake in oven for a few minutes until hard.
2. Using a ziploc bag with the tip cut, squeeze out a dollop of refried beans onto the star tortillas.
3. " ", squeeze out tiny dogs of sour cream onto each point of the star tortillas.
4. Cut up some green onions. Place three segments on the beans, leaving a space in the middle.
5. Cut cherry or grape tomatoes in half, placing in middle.
6. Sprinkle generous amount of orange cheese over top.

Broken... and Mending

“When the Japanese mend broken objects they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold, because they believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful” -Barbara Bloom

I think I might be to the point where I'm almost glad that my plans fell through. In regards to marriage, that is. I seriously questioned if I could ever love again, and if so, would it ever be as deep and passionate and wonderful as what I had experienced once? Would anyone ever love me? I felt hurt, abandoned, and betrayed. Broken beyond repair, like there was no one who could fix me or fill that void. I was surrounded by people who loved me, but it wasn't the same.

It's been nearly six months since my ex-future-husband told me I wasn't good enough for him or right for him or something- I still don't understand exactly what it was- and I still look back on it with pain. Yet I am alive, and life is sweet. I have come to realize that yes, I can love again. I can feel it. I will. Perhaps loving someone has less to do with their merits, talents, personality- their general "loveability"- and more to do with the one doing the loving than the one being loved.

Though broken, I am mending. I am returning to who I am and regaining the optimism and enthusiasm that I thought I had lost. I find myself at another crossroads in my life, and I have made my choice. I choose happiness. I choose now to live with passion and love.

I'm Aliiiiiive!

I'm alive and it rocks. No I haven't had any near-death experiences, or even any near-near-death experiences, but it is awesome to be alive. I know what I want to do with the rest of my life (meaning the next three or so years... then it's up in the air!) and I finally figured out how to do it. Huzzah! I wish I had something terribly clever to say, but perhaps another day.
