I was reluctant to give up LiveJournal. I've been there for years and years. It's easy to use, has a nice community, and has many convenient features I like.

But then it was bought out by Mother Russia. Since I didn't feel comfortable handing over my credit information to someone named Boris in Moskow, I stopped using my credit card to pay for my account and started making one-shot payments with PayPal instead. But then we got the new "privacy" statement that basically said, "This new statement lets us do anything we want, and since we're in Russia, what are you going to do about it?"

So now I'm over here. Hi, there!

I'll mirror over at LJ for a little bit longer, but this is my home now. It needs some paint and new carpeting and a different kitchen, but I'm good!

Pull up a chair and join the conversation.

I make a Ukrainian dish which is wildly popular in our little household. It's just sausage crumbled into a big pan and fried up with onions, garlic, chopped peppers, and a whole pot full of potatoes (boiled, drained, and cubed), spiced with salt and paprika. I call it Ukrainian stir fry, and it's everyone's favorite food, even Darwin. The latter is most surprising, since Darwin generally dislikes foods that are mixed together. This, however, he likes.

Thing is, it doesn't matter how much I make--it always gets eaten. I mean, ALL of it. I noticed this trend, and started experimenting. At first, I was putting in one large potato for each person at the table. CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP! All gone.

Then I tried one and a half potatoes per person. CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP! All gone.

Then I tried two potatoes per person. CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP! All gone.

Today, I used two potatoes per person again, except I forgot Darwin had a council meeting and wouldn't be home for dinner. Then Aran got home from work when I was halfway through dinner prep and announced he'd stopped at McDonald's for supper already, so he wasn't hungry.

CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP! All gone.

Geez.
