34. Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?

I just did.


This has been a pretty fast, hectic week. I spent Thursday and Friday working on the reviews - finished in time - and last night made a hasty ground beef & wild rice soup (came out reasonably well) as well as the cookies rahirah talked about in her journal recently. It's a recipe I haven't made in many years; they're good, but I don't think they're quite AS good as I remember 'em - even being made with better chocolate now. Of course, they do NEED nuts and I was out of pecans so I used chocolate chunks instead.

Now we're off. I HAVE to study this weekend. Stupid test Thursday. Erg.
