I Like Dreamin'

I have an Idea Book. There I've written down all my brilliant creations and inventions that I could get filthy rich off of if I had just one ounce of clue in life. I've never gotten to the prototype stage, just written ideas. Because I'm also a chronic procrastinator. Not lazy mind you, I spend all the energy on nervousness and regret. I have seen a few of them come to fruition a year or so later by some go-getter, can-do thinking-type person. Good for them! sigh. Yeah, you'll be surprised to know I invented the pop-art nail salon manicure that is so popular today way back in the early 2000's with all the vibrant colors and styles. This was from having to look at horrifying Brooklyn painted sunsets on 2 inch thick and long nails. And the dreaded French manicure that somehow resembled a fake tan and a boob job on ugly old toes. I thought, oh there are so many young girls out there with sweet young soft toes that need to be celebrated with greens and blues and flowers and flags...just silly things but fun. Get rid of the dirty ancient salons and replace with bright inviting shops with welcoming receptionists and clear choices all lined up like an ice cream parlor selection. Yep. Was thinking of putting one in the basement of the Virgin Megastore, a rock and roll version. We needed a traffic driver. I needed my boss Dave Alder's face to light up like it had back when I came up with good ideas. Coulda been 'it' for me, the turning point. (insert another long painful sigh).

Well, also in that book, I have an oil spritzer devise. And today I bought one. Misto Oil Sprayer. Genius. It's been on the market since 1997 but its new to me as they say.
You take your own preferred oil of any kind put it in, give it a pump and you can control the amount you want to spray on veggies, salads, pans etc. You spend too much on extra virgin olive oil and the last thing you want to do is waste it by being too liberal with the pour.

This was very convenient to use on my oven-roasted broccoli and red peppers. A squeeze of lemon and salt and pepper right out of the oven. Perfecto Misto!
