I think I’m going to make the agretti dish; D&D are bringing me veggies tonight and they mentioned that they might bring some of it. It’s usually eaten as a leafy green, and I’m pretty sure it needs to be cooked before you can eat it… Otherwise it might have a bit of a bite to it. We’ll see! I love trying new vegetables. I’m thinking I might submit to Weekend Herb Blogging if it comes out well; it would be my first time submitting.

My new lease in Mountain View starts on Thursday, so I will probably move stuff in on Thursday and stay at my current house that night, then move more stuff on Friday and spend the night there. On Thursday night I also have a math test for a tutoring job which would be in Cupertino, pretty close to Mountain View. The week will be hectic, but I’m excited for everything that’s going on.

I also have a meeting to go to on Tuesday night for Quaker meeting – I’m going to try to get involved in some green projects to keep myself busy. I spoke to a woman at meeting today about teaching and possibly getting a masters. Being a speech specialist sounds like it has potential – I’ve always been interested in linguistics, and I probably should have majored in it for undergrad. Languages are so complex and interesting and I love learning how to analyze them and watching their evolution. It’s pretty awesome, actually.

I’m also going to try to find some time this week to make a couscous cake for that contest that’s going on… And I wanted to try having bulgur for breakfast instead of oatmeal.

    Your menu sounds good! I would love to know how you make the bulgur breakfast. I’ve only used bulgur for tabboleh, and love the idea of having it for breakfast!
    Thanks!
