You feel to moan but unlike before, You discover that you'd be just one more, person crying

Do you ever feel off? Like you just can't get anything right and your whole body and mind is way off of alignment? Well I feel like that every day of my life. So its a wonder I ever pass as a functioning human being. I guess either no one pays attention or there are a lot of people out there with the same problem.

In the winter people like me go undetected unless I make a rare appearance at a company Christmas party or venture out with a visiting friend. Otherwise, I hole up. But inside closed doors I'm still just as screwy, messing up, getting everything wrong but its just that most people don't see it. Tonight I had so many aspirations for my Friday night. I was to make homemade Christmas cookies, Chili Oil, Chili Powder, a No-Salt concoction for my dad and somehow none of it was even started however I did make a good stuffed pita with crab salad and baked sweet potato fries.

I'm allergic to fish but for some reason I can eat that fake crab leg stuff, which is fish made to look like crab, including the red dots, which is pretty weird and creepy in and of itself when you think of it but I thought it might be nice to have a cool fresh salad tonight as change of pace. You know, while I was busy with all my projects I would need a light supper, was my thinking.

I love baked fries (see Garlicky Baked Fries) but I got a whole mess of sweet potatoes for a dollar (Thanks PathMark!) and they are supposed to hold more nutrition. So I made the recipe to exclude the red pepper flakes and substituted with cumin instead. I think it goes much nicer. I lightly toasted the wheat pita pockets and that is nice against the chilled salad.

I get stuff right now and then, that's why I haven't just thrown myself into the gowanus and be done with it. Like these fries. I burnt them, don't get me wrong but next time I know you can do these with sweet potatoes and the cumin is the right spice (just a pinch of nutmeg). They are a keeper! Delicious burnt so I know they will be amazing made correctly!

And I used Greek yogurt with just a touch of mayo for the salad and lots of fresh dill, celery, tomatoes, green bell pepper and lemon zest.

Brooklyn doesn't suck.
