Wish I hads and had nots

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”
Carl Sagan
Wish I had not been wishing there were more hours in the day. Woke up this morn at 2am and couldn't get back to sleep. Ugh! Blame it on the decongestant I'm now on. Guess the bright side is my loss of appetite. I cooked a soup at lunch (a riff on La Cuoca Ciccia's Chard Chick Pea Stew recipe), so I ate a protein bar for supper. As you can see from his plate of Venison Stir Fry, Hubby had something better in mind.
Wish I had bought this motion-sensing nite lite years ago for night trips to the mud/laundry room. Now I don't have to turn on the multi-bulb ceiling fluorescent light when all I need to do is put one little thing in the washer. Btw, LOVING my new camera (Sony Cyber-shot; sure beats the TWO that I tried and then returned. Wish I had bought this one first!
Wish I had tried growing mung bean sprouts long before now. Soo easy--some of these are destined for our salads at lunch today. Not sure if the leaves should be discarded. Anyone know? Guess I'll find out soon enough!
Hope your wish I hads and wish I had nots grow fewer and fewer every day...and I wish the same for me!

Heehee about wishing there wee more hours in the day. I hate sleepless nights.

That stir fry looks yummy.

I can't make a suggestion about the sprout leaves, we always eat our sprouts before they get to that point!! ;) That sensor light is pretty cool, handy and an energy saver!


How cool that you grew mung bean sprouts! I'm very impressed. :)

Hens need green in the winter, so that would be good for yours. Oh, well, it's winter I keep saying I am going to get a light for the bathroom just so I won't have a bright light in my eyes when I go during the night.

I wish I had some of that venison stir-fry. It looks delicious!
