Vegetarian eaters: My coworker made black bean pancakes with salsa on top and said they were out of this world:

2 cups drained,cooked beans *mash in bowl with fork

then stir in
1 cup dairy (calls for cream, but he used 1% milk)
2 tbs oil or butter
1 egg
seasonings and salt… why not some cheese? screw it….yeah, cheese. HELL YES WE’RE ADDING SOME CHEESE IN HERE! I AM A GOD IN THE KITCHEN AND I REQUIRE CHEESE ALL UP IN THIS B! or not…your call

then mix in until it looks like pancake batter

then add 1 cup flour (add more dairy if too dry)

cook as you would pancakes

Black bean, pinto beans? Add salsa or sour cream as a topper
White beans (cannellini)? Pesto?
Other beans? Go for it.

My mother has a theory that when either 1) he's declared incompetent to serve or 2) they find him guilty of misconduct, Quinn will then appoint his wife to serve out his term.
It all seems so sketchy to me.
The governor can appoint someone to fill a Senate seat ( see, Blgojevich, f*ckin golden comment). A Congressional Rep seat seems to depend on when it comes vacant- most often there is a special election.

Your MIL may be right. Credible spouses are often put in place of deceased , and presumably disabled, congressman. How it is done is teh question.

So I was supposed to meet A's boyfriend this weekend. I planned around it and left Saturday free (long story short) and after my crappy day yesterday I emailed her and half-jokingly Sadi that I better get to meet him after all that. She wrote back and said she must have forgotten to tell me but they switched weekends. I am so pissed; I planned around this because my friend A is important to me. Obviously when it's an SO things are different but still... I feel like all the stuff I did & didn't do to make myself available don't matter. And that's not true; indirectly it has cost me money, time, and my Saturday night plans. No more - if it works out it works out but I'm not planning around her boyfriend ever again.

And that's what you want for the rest of the country? I'll bet you people STILL vote democrat next time, then wonder why things aren't getting better. Then say it must be because of Republicans!

Believe it or not, some people vote for certain PEOPLE and not just the party affiliation.

Your way is not the only way. Stop thinking that you're the only person who knows what's right and what's best.

He can bite me. I've spent a lot of energy worrying about this and I tried to tell A my concerns in a loving way. Not saying I won't be there for her when the poo hits the fan but I'm done altering MY life to be accommodating. Not when it's costing me in multiple ways.

Remember, don't argue with idiots. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

althgouh this may sound snarky, good for your for reaching that point... I've been that way (minus the $$ spent to accomodate) with one of my good friends. i'll text, i'll call, but no response, i'll tell her i'll bring a bottle of wine over instead of going for coffee because she's broke, but never a response to the invite. when she does come up for air, i've asked how high before she finshes saying jump in order to try to make things work to meet up with her. i think i've visited her in the hospital more htan i've been to her place in the last couple of years - and she's not that far from me.

It hurts to reach this point, but it does get liberating. it's ok to still worry about her and for her, but you're right, you've done a lot to try to meet up, and now, time for you!

Don't worry about that, you nervous Nellie. With Obama winning the election, the world is surely going to end long before the next presidential vote.

C'mon Dog. That paints with way too broad a brush.I don't assume "all" Democrats are alike or that "all"Republicans are alike. Lindsay Graham and whats-her-name Bachman are both active Republicans. Jim Thompson and George Ryan are both Republicans. None of them are alike. No reason to think anyone else in teh House is like Jesse Jr, regardless of party
