Yes I promise I'll post more today. But when I was reading Dongurigal's blog a few minutes ago I was treated to this lovely link to a most amazingly hilarious video. I heard the song on the radio this weekend and remembered that video and hoped I could find it again. WOW Thanks, Dongurigal!
I also have to say a huge thank you to all the ladies at FWC for being so supportive and wonderful. It has helped so much having you guys there and knowing I'm not the only one going through such great times (can you smell the sarcasm?) being an expat. Mostly this has been a fun ride, but somedays just plain suck. ok, enough wallowing in self pity today.
Tomorrow I start a new job. I am REALLY looking forward to it. No, I won't blog about it...at least I'll try not to. But it does seem to be a good place to work, nice friendly people, FABULOUS air conditioning *big grin*, and a boss with a sense of humour. Not to mention that it's a pretty progressive dental practice. That's what attracted me to it in the first place. Australia is not known for progressive dentistry, not that it's third world, by any means. But it definitely is behind the USA by a few years. I am really looking forward to the challenge. Now, I must get on with my day. Have lots to do, not much time to do it in, and a doctor's appointment in an hour. Must go dry my hair!
Oh yes, and I will post my first recipe as well.
Haven't tried it yet, but I will be this week...was posted by an American here in Australia where we crave Mexican food more than any other (i think) because there are so few decent places to eat that serve Mexican or Tex-Mex foods.
Mexican Four Bean Salad
-1 can of Edgell's Four Bean Mix (or other), rinsed and drained
-1 tablespoon onion, diced
-1 small tomato, seeded and diced
-1 scallion/green onion, sliced
-1 clove garlic, finely minced
-1 teaspoon diced canned jalapenos and some juice from the jar
-1 tablespoon fresh (or teaspoon dried) coriander/cilantro
-1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
-1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
-1 tablespoon olive oil
-Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients in a glass bowl and let stand in fridge for at
least an hour to develop the flavours.
It is much better if you have a real lime and fresh coriander, so
worth purchasing them.
