tabbouleh salad

  1. cucumber, diced

  3. 1/2 cup bulghur wheat
  4. 1 or 2 green onion(s), thinly sliced

  6. Lemon juice
Pour hot water over the bulghur and let soak until it is soft has absorbed most of the water. Mix diced veggies by hand then add the bulghur and mix some more; add lemon juice and olive oil to get the right flavor and consistency. Refrigerate, eat and enjoy.


  1. let's see, flowers in a bouquet. Shoot, I'm so bad at knowing flower names...I love brightly colored flowers so sunflowers and then a mixture of others...I don't know them by name, only by sight.

    books to read or re-read - oh gosh. I have a giant list of books to read plus favorites that i have on my shelf. I will never tire of Ray Bradbury, Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, or Charles Dickens.

    To visit: Italy, Ireland, Alaska ( I want to see Denali), Greece, and back to England.

    People I would like to invite to tea...I would love to meet Anne Rice, Stephan King, Clive Barker, Stan Lee, and tim curry. i think meeting tim curry would be epic!

    chores i hate: laundry, gardening( i hate bugs), cleaning the bathrooms, window cleaning, scrubbing floors.

  2. Ahhh... yes. The litter box. Also in my domain, though when the college contingent is home... they "get to" help. LOL. I loved your book list because the first 3 are ones I have not read. I am afraid my wishlist on Amazon is officially ridiculous.

    Thanks for playing and sorry for the delay in coming to visit. :)


thanks for visiting—peace and hope to all of us!
