Revision: an edited version of a project, paper, or diatribe. To "see again".


I'm sick of leftovers.

Leftovers in college have whole new meaning than they did at home. Sure, Mom always made enough food to feed an army, but there was AN ARMY TO FEED.
Here, I make food in the same proportions... and I eat the same thing for a month.

Therefore, revision. The rice dish yesterday becomes a chicken base today, becomes a taco soup tomorrow, will be Spanish casserole next week.
My creative tendencies and "thrifty" (read: CHEAP) tendencies combine to help me create all kinds of things from... all kinds of leftovers.

Just today, I ruined pumpkin muffins. Don't ask me how, they just didn't work (OK, you asked, and I think it has to do with not pre-heating the oven... oops). BUT the point is, How will I make something new out of this dish that probably should've been tossed straight into the trash as it exited the oven?

Revision... gotta love it.

PHaaaaaa! Love it. It reminds me of the song, "This is the soup that never ends, it just goes on and on my friend. Some people started making it not knowing what it was and we'll continue eating it forever just because....

Your own words, back to haunt you!
