Sweet Pea Lexicon

In case you have trouble deciphering my overuse of acronyms in my posts, I present the Sweet Pea Lexicon:

FNB--Friday Night Bites, my weekly weekend recipe, usually something that is a definite "make again."
G--son #2, born in early 2007
"make again"--any meal that meets three scientific criteria: 1. it is tasty, 2. it is healthful/natural, 3. the Sweet Peas all eat it
pumpkins--other people's children
R--son #1, born in early 2004
SPC--your truly, the Sweet Pea Chef
SPH--my wonderful husband
sweet peas--other children
Sweet Peas--my children
UFI(s)--Ultra-Funky Ingredients/Unidentifiable Food Item, basically weird things on the ingredient lists of our foods that make you go, "huh?" Examples: Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Carrageenan

I blame 9 years of working in the federal government for any acronym over-reliance.

That's too funny. I would have gotten 100% on the vocab quiz without even studying.

When we were at the airport getting a drink before our flight, our waitress mentioned that she had come out of retirement because her husband was RIF-ed. Our Philly travel companions looked at her like she had two heads...I had to explain it was gov't speak for laid off.
