Random deleted spam comment of the week: "Insanity is forgetting to believe a few lies."
I'm not sure if I buy into that one. Too cynical?
In other news, I've discovered that I may be one of the few people of my age group that enjoys prunes. Sure, they call them "dried plums" now, but they are prunes to me. Two of my friends tried a prune tonight, and had adverse reactions.
I like to eat them especially after I eat pistachios.
I'm nearly done decorating the floors. Only two duty boards to go! One day of Spring RA training left! One semester left! :)
That's probably it for now.

Never eaten a prune... do they taste anything like raisins?
Sort of. Really, they taste like a really ripe plum that has been dried. Not bad. Kind of mushy. However, they are a little sticky, which can dissude some eaters.
They smell like raisins.
Prunes and pistachios, floating around in the same stomach...neither pregnant women nor the outre French crave such offbeat delicacies. I admire your intestinal fortitude, Julie Young!
What I'd like to know is how you happened upon the prune 'stachio cobmo.
I happened to be eating a handful of pistachios when I thought, "yum, I could go for something delicately sweet to compliment the salt" and then the thought struck me that I had prunes in my fridge. After I paired them, I discovered that they went well together, like all the weird stuff in spumoni...it has a slightly eastern European flair...
Which you would know, of course, considering your expertise in Eastern European and World cuisine. (was that too sarcastic? okay, i'm done now.)
lol. Indeed, much of my eastern European cuisine expertise sounds like this: "Is this haluski the right color?"
