About vaginas. Hers actually.
She was asking me questions about it and I was trying to remember all our plumbing and how it works and explaining babies and going to the bathroom and how it's all pretty complicated down there. And she was listening to me intently and then she looked at her vagina and then me and said this:
"My vagina is a long, dark tunnel with snails and a tiger."
Which I think is a damn good description of a vagina. Mine certainly has a tiger. Anyway, someone please call Eve Ensler and get this kid in the "Vagina Monologues".
No CSFB (Competent but Sexy Finnish Babysitter) so I leave you with a short post and a dish I made last night from Bon Appetite when my best friend from high school, Mary and her Mom, who was like my second Mom growing up, came for a visit yesterday. It was great to see them and this dish was quick and tasty.
A couple notes about the recipe - I put a little too much heat in the cabbage. Okay, way too much heat. I nearly set Mary and Rita's sinus cavities on fire. But I whipped up a second "no heat" batch and it was just lovely. You don't need lots of heat. It's sweet and vinegary and a nice compliment to the steak without the jalepenos. So, be light handed. Also, if you prep ahead, (cutting all the garlic, ginger etc.) the dinner takes all of ten minutes to get on the table. Oh! and make extra cabbage. It's divine and goes quickly.
I'm posting the recipe with only a little fiddling because the kids will be up any minute. I'll post again this weekend!
