This cryptic line, and a vague recollection of being violently contorted into a fit of totally uncontrollable laughter, complete with tears squeezing out of my eyes, for reasons apparent to no one but me, is about all that I can remember of that monumental moment in time, when my mind suddenly “clicked,” and I was changed, instantly, from a dour “you-always-take-everything-so-seriously” kinda gal, into a weird, wired, doo-wackity-doo, 62-yr. old comic, of sorts, a late-bloomer, if you will, in the style of Georgia O’Keefe (sans the x-rated artwork).
My daughter had a head start on me, with her quick wit and wry outlook, and listening to her hysterical one-liners over the years has, apparently, rubbed off on me, to the point that I now find that I have morphed into (with the help of the recent gift of my first iPhone) an App Store-downloading, Facebook-firestorm-starting, word & drawing game-playing, meme-making “App-aholic” with acute insomnia!!! (I’ll bet you just noticed that I broke a cardinal rule of good writing, that has probably existed since the dawn of the written word: “One sentence doth not a paragraph make!)”
Oh, well. (Oops! I just did it again!)
Original Cabbage Memes
(I used SuperImpose and TextPhoto, from the App Store, to put these little memes together.)
I suppose, I should include some cabbage recipes and info, for those of you who arrived at this page thinking it was about food, ‘lest ye be disappointed, disillusioned, and become thoroughly disgusted with me!
Cinnamon-Baked Cabbage Wedges
1 medium head green cabbage
3 Tbsp. butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Remove outer, bruised leaves and rinse the cabbage head under cold water. Carefully cut the head of cabbage into 8 equally-sized wedges, cutting through the core and stem end. Tear a 10″ length of wide aluminum foil in half, forming 2 individual sheets. Do the 4 times (for a total of 8 sheets). Arrange each wedge on a piece of the aluminum foil.
Apply butter to both cut sides of each wedge, and sprinkle sides with cinnamon. Fold the foil around each wedge, being careful to completely seal them, to prevent moisture from escaping during baking. Place the wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Bake cabbage wedges for about 40 minutes, or until a fork pressed against the sides of each wedge gives a little. (i.e. “tells you it’s getting kinda squishy!”)
