Strawberry Cool Whip works

I used half that and half regular in the banana split cake recipe. Strawberry's on the bottom layer. It works, so very well I'm tempted to do like Mei Xiang here, except the cake's for everybody and I don't want to have a body like Mei's.

I recalled this anonymous poem while I made it:

I didn't have potatoes,
so I substituted rice.
Didn't have paprika,
so I used another spice.

I didn't have tomato sauce,
so I used tomato paste.
A whole can not a half can -
I don't believe in waste.

My friend gave me the recipe -
she said you couldn't beat it.
There must be something wrong with her,
I couldn't even eat it.


Also, I edited my pro-SSM piece, and now the editor of Third Rail Magazine, out of Staten Island, wants to run it!

Now I'm just going to try to stay cool and wait on my guests.

Hope everyone's enjoying their weekend! The long paragraphs and lists of links will return later this week. :-)

I can't believe the politicos are trying this sleight of hand again!

Dear, Sweet Lilo--I've proverbially "been there" and I appreciate seing this particular poem. *That* is a poem that cuts through the chaos (and doesn't even NEED paprika)! I smiled today because of your sauce-makin' muse.

Hugs ad infinitum,

Ian
