leftovers. Leftover rice, leftover shrimp, leftover
shiitake, leftover everything. Put it together right
and people wouldn't know it's stone soup unless you
advertise it. So, here's some chirashi-zushi,
takoyaki with mayonnaise, edamame,
and a fruit
salad made with grapes, palm seeds, and craisins.
Finally, I have Nutter Butter cookies, and even those
are leftovers. I brought them back from Dragon Con.
For me, Nutter Butters are the official cookie of
giving blood. I used to give blood every time the Red
Cross came by my office building, and then sit at the
table munching Nutter Butters and drinking fruit juice.
But then the Red Cross decided that I have Mad Cow Disease
and stopped taking my blood. The blood drive at Dragon
Con was by another organization... one that always flunks
me because my iron level is low by 0.1%. My blood isn't
good enough for anybody any more. But they did
give me a T-shirt and some cookies for trying.
