The most expensive produce ever?

I thought of (e:Paul) the other day when I saw this display of truffles in the produce section. (I think you posted a similar or maybe this exact same picture once!) I can't believe how crazy expensive these things are! I'm tempted to just enter the code into the scale next time I'm there when I'm weighing something else, just to see how much it would be. I wonder how often people buy them?!

recipe/pinterest

So I joined Pinterest a week or so ago. I resisted the temptation for awhile, because I knew it would be extremely addictive. Aaaaand I was right! But it is really fun. I've already gotten some cool recipe ideas. In fact, I tried one tonight and it actually turned out really well! Usually when I try something for the first time I need to tweak it but I don't think I would do anything different. It was super easy but that's the kind of recipe I like. Here's the recipe:
Mine didn't look quite as good as the picture, but that's probably fake food anyway.

Also, I'm up to 3 out of the 9 nominated Best Picture movies. I'm hoping to increase that number somewhat before next Sunday's Oscar bash with (e:mike) and (e:jill).

Private schools

So this is my first year teaching in a private school. It's always interesting when I tell people where I teach to see their reaction. Generally, people either look really impressed or like I just told them I recently found out I have a terminal illness. It bothers me that some people's minds automatically go to "private school = no retirement/terrible pay/awful place to work/you must be miserable". Actually I'm not that miserable. Other than the fact that I feel like a new teacher while teaching the younger kids since I haven't done it since 2005, I'm actually pretty happy there. It's been interesting comparing it to public school teaching. Honestly, other than the $ aspect and a couple other minor things, private schools definitely come out on top. It's nice to not worry about budgets or state standards or curriculum mapping and to actually focus on teaching. Plus class sizes are way more manageable and make it possible to really focus on individual kid's needs. (I sound like a commercial) Plus we get a lot more days off than public schools and we're finished about 3 weeks earlier. I'll gladly take enjoying my job and making less money than the other way around. Any day!

The whole world of private schools is new to me in general. I always went to public school and so did all of my friends. I think we all turned out okay, but it makes me wonder if I would be more of a leader, more confident, etc. had I gone to a private school and had more opportunities. Who knows? Anywho, just wanted to put that out there. Did any of you go to private schools? What's your take on them?

"I just can't wait till my ten year reunion..."

...sings John Mayer. (e:mike) and I used to talk about our ten year reunion all the time, and now it's actually happening this weekend! How crazy. I hope they play all music from high school, because frankly, that's the last time I really followed popular music. I dabbled a bit in college, but if there's one thing I'm confident of, it's my knowledge of late 90's/early 2000's mainstream music.

I also can't believe we will be helping (e:mike) move out of Kenmore soon! I always liked that he was nearby if I was going to visit my parents for some reason, or that we could meet there if we were going to lunch, the mall, etc. Now he will be in the cool part of town, where I secretly wish I lived, and will be my last friend to leave Kenmore!

I am the worst updater ever. What's new with me? Oh yeah, I got married. It was super fun and great and worth every penny and one of my other high school friends has told me she's afraid I've ruined weddings for her forever, muhahahaha!!! And then we went to San Fran and I loved that, too. This year I'm starting a new job, since my old job was cut. Public schools are wonderful places. My new job is only part time and a lot less $$$$$$ but I'm lucky to at least have a job, and I think I'm going to enjoy it a lot.

Ok, see y'all in ilke 6 months or so. :)
