Hey perfectionist, no R! (Teasing.)

If we had eaten your risotto instead of going out to the grill for scallops, I think the rapid CT of your chest would not have happened. We could have skipped the reading too, where that woman with the safety pin on her glasses touched all your books.

p.s. When do I get to try your risotto?

Pamela said...

Baked sweet potatoes? I make 'em (or more accurately, fix them) with beer and turbinado sugar syrup and they are sublime. That's the same way to fix figs.

DKM: hehehe, I know, it's like a drawl. Warrrrr-shing-ton
Rebecca: I'll email you
Pamela: figs! now you are talkin'

Diane K. Martin said...

No, um, I mean your meme went from Quote to Siblings. Do you mean you used up the Rs in Warshington?

Diane: I never saw it! I must not be much of a perfectionist, eh? hehehehe. I added something in to round it out. Can't be missing an "R."
