Balanced Brain

Just took the Right Brain vs Left Brain Creativity Test offered by AI and unsurprisingly, came out

Left Brain: 50%
Right Brain: 51%

I've often been told that I'm very balanced and as far as my job goes, it's always been my ability to balance right down the middle of the creative/technical, intuitive/logical, verbal/non-verbal that has allowed me to manage as well as I have.

A hearty bowl of purple salad

I am SUCH my mom and grandmom's daughter!

Cooking accomplishment for the night? "Russian salad" out of my German cookbook, featuring: chopped red cabbage, onion, dill pickles and apples, soaked 24 hrs. in mixture of pickle juice, red and white vinegar and water, then drained and tossed with horseradish, yogurt, raisins and a teeny bit of sugar.

Mmmmmm mmmmm! AND it's even good for you, no fat and hardly any sugar. The only drawback is that it will probably turn my pee purple :)

Anyway, I'm guessing this salad wouldn't be to everyone's taste, but I love it and it's definitely a lot more palatable than, say, that herring salad I made a few months back. That was kind of good but kind of, well, overwhelming.
