There are up sides and down sides to my obsessive compulsivity. I know a lot of people can't imagine what the up sides could be, but I can tell you that for Life As She Does It, they scream volumes about the Bohemian Glitter Girl I am, and help me reach The Masses (that's YOU!), all while being a cathartic-and-helpful outlet. The particular obsessive complusive part of me I'm referring to (Yes. There are several) is the monthly themes. I've been doing it for as long as I can remember. It stretches from clothing to food, too. So for example: March = Green or Irish. Yes, I'm Italian, but the OCD transcends that fact. I wear green every day in March. Please don't ask me to explain in one post, just trust that there is a method to my madness. As far as food in March, I either cook green food items, or Irish food. This last Saturday morning, I created a Spanish take on green eggs and ham by making scrambled eggs loaded with cilantro with some Spanish chorizo and avocado on the side. The Spanish chorizo was quite salty, so I drizzled some of the leftover mustard sauce I made for the corned beef a couple of nights before, and it was absolutely luscious. Stay tuned for the monthly themes to come; in the meantime, eat green to your heart's content and know Spring is right around the corner!
