Green Onion Pasta

I’m back.

I felt a tad flattened for a while after “Daphne Dishes” wasn’t picked up.  Throw in some personal stuff and feeling father time was sitting on my face– and not in a good way– I got discouraged.  Lost my creative way.  Fell into “what’s the point?” and my health insurance costs a fortune.  I gotta get a job at Hertz. Plus, the 2016 election and all that followed.  America, how did we get out of bed?

But, after my Siddhartha like journey ( i.e. networking, talking to casting directors, agent, etc and most importantly my mother) I realized the parade may have kept moving, but I can jump on a float.  The hard part is I have to build my own float.

When I thought about what means the most to me it’s 1) my kids 2) comedy 3) political issues 4) food ( 2-3-4 shift positions often).  To that end in addition to this being coolmom.com it is also coolfoodmom.com and coolactivistmom.com.  Because as my kids get older they still take a shit ton of my time, however I can’t exploit them as easily.  They are on to me.  Plus, I remembered my breasts aren’t just milk bags and I do have nice curvy hips and oh, yeah, there is a woman there.

I do really miss Daphne Dish’s, so I will do my best with my limited resources and lack of production value and reboot some cooking, comedy, sass.  Here is my first attempt.
