Time Warp Tuesday: You want TIES with that?

First:  the wife was laughing at yesterday's post so much she was CRYING.  It was, as you will recall, about HER, and had to do with peanut butter and...well, go down and have a look!

You know Jen runs Time Warp Tuesday, right?  A chance to look back at your old photos?

I was talking with Adam last week and he mentions tie clips.  "You don't use tie clips much in your business" and I am like
"I used to teach at a prep school.  It was jacket and tie ALL THE TIME even for teaching pottery".  I taught English skills, coached cross country and track and ran the yearbook, lived in the dorm and tried to keep teens from ____ and yes, taught pottery.  This was in the 90s before cell phones or computers everywhere, a good thing to try, but a lot of work even if it was charming like living in DEAD POETS SOCIETY.  This is from two different yearbooks, I am the dude in the 'stache:

In other news, we had the Chinese noodle dish I talked about last week AGAIN....3 times in one week!  I made it with coconut rice yesterday.  Do you know coconut rice?  SO easy so awesome!

--Cook 1.5 cups of rice as you normally would, except use a 14-15 oz can or coconut milk + add a 1/4 cup of water instead of just water.    That is it!
You can top it with toasted coconut, mix it in, whatever.  What I did instead of the toasted coconut was as it boils and simmers I diced and added one cup broccoli and a bell pepper and some curry powder.
It is SO thick and tasty, a great compliment to noodles!

Cocoanut rice sounds just awesome. Love the yearbook photos. No more ties for you huh? They seem so restricting; choking. Dead poets society.....I remember that movie!

Janet said...

so making that rice tonight, sounds amazing!

Boy, that place sure got a lot of work out of you!!!

I can't imagine NOT clipping back a tie if you had to wear one while teaching!
I do hope we'll be reading more about that part of your life--sound pretty interesting.

Coconut rice sounds amazingly good!

Gary in a tie and dress shirt... so different from now! (But does Maude miss those days at all?)

Susan said...

Wow - memories AND reipes - sound like a new weekly post!

I don't like coconut in most things but DO like coconut milk... but alas, Jeff does not. My favorite rice is with coconut milk and lemongrass... yum.
