Alternate Title ~ FACEBOOK Faux-Pas: The difference between MY Husband and EVERY Mother I know.
I had a phone conversation earlier today that went something like this.
Mr. Woo: Oh, hey. Yeah, I just wanted to tell you, in the future don’t tag me in pictures on Facebook.
Me: What are you talking about? I only tagged you on the pics of our kids so that you would know that I posted them on Facebook.
Mr. Woo: Well, don’t ever do that again. It seems so stupid. I’m not even in any of those pictures. And some of them have another black man in them, and now my friends are going to get notified that I’ve been tagged in these pictures, and when they look at it, they are going to see a picture of a man that isn’t even me.
Me: Well. I WAS JUST TRYING TO BE HELPFUL. That’s what people do on Facebook. Moms anyway. When their kids are in pictures you tag the mom, and then she’s all, “Great! Now I know someone has posted a picture of my lovely kids that I can cherish forever.” You should be thanking me.
Mr. Woo: Well, I’m not. I think that’s stupid. Don’t tag me anymore.
Me: Well, I think your mean and inconsiderate.
And then, I hung up right in his FACEBOOK.
I know. It wasn’t really very nice of me. Or him for that matter.
I was just so mad.
Why wouldn’t he be grateful to me for tagging him and letting his Facebook Friends know that pics were posted of his kids?
Probably for the same reason he refuses to buy a mini-van.

I’ve had my ‘face’ in another ‘book’ lately.
It’s a really wonderful, superbly sinful read.
Maybe you won’t be surprised, it’s a cookbook.
A Nigella Lawson Cookbook. Nigella Express to be exact.
I’m not afraid to say, I slept with it the other night, and I slept gloriously.
I found it at Half Price Books. . . .for half price. 2007 edition. Glorious.
Lucky for you.
You get to reap the benefits.
2 Minute Whole Wheat Dry Pancake Mix
Inspired by Nigella Lawson
Nigella’s weren’t Whole Wheat. And she used regular milk. And I think she called them Homemade Instant Pancake Mix. And too be truthful, I believe she said they only took 1 1/2 minutes to prepare. But I timed it, and it took me two : )
Make up a batch of these, and then store the remaining mix in an airtight container. Then anytime you want Pancakes, you can serve them up in no time flat.
Dry Mix Ingredients:
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups unbleached flour
3 TB baking powder
2 ts baking soda
1 ts salt
2 TB plus 2 ts sugar
Whisk together the above ingredients. Store in an airtight container.
TO MAKE THE BATTER AND THE PANCAKES:
One cup of pancake mix makes 13-15 three inch pancakes.
1 cup of pre-made Pancake Mix
1 cup sour milk (milk with 1 TB lemon juice added)
1 TB butter, melted
1. Heat your skillet or griddle to medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray.
2. Spoon batter onto the skillet and when bubbles start to form, and then edges turn dry, flip each pancake. This will take about 1 1/2 minutes.
3. Allow pancakes to cook on the other side for a minute longer, or until golden brown. Serve warm with Strawberry Syrup.
