My recent edition showed up in the mail today and I read it during my lunch. I'm required to take a one hour lunch and since I don't have any work that would compel me to work through lunch, I actually sit down and enjoy an hour off. This month's edition included a review of balsamic vinegars, a recipe for a lemon cake that looks simply divine, and the truth about bread making. If you like cooking, this magazine is a must. It's a bit on the pricey side and comes out bi-monthly, but there's no advertising to slog through, not fawning reviews of restaurants or wineries, just good information. Think of Cook's Illustrated as the Popular Science of cooking magazines.
That was today's lunch. Thinly sliced German bologna on white bread with Miracle Whip and pepper. Oh, yummy. But it has to be German bologna. None of that Oscar Meyer crap here, baby! And what's up with fried bologna. Ew. Ick.
Saw one out for a walk with its owner this morning on my way into work. I want one. They're just too adorable for words and so incredibly loyal. Speaking of dachshunds, I just watched an old Disney film, The Ugly Dachshund. Perhaps I'll review that in a separate post. Funny, funny movie.
If you haven't seen this British spy thriller (it's called Spooks in the U.K.), you're missing out. It's really quite good.
...No tickets in the seven hour parking zone. So far.
Parked in Metro lot in the Republic of Takoma Park again this morning. Came back this evening anticipating a ticket. No ticket. I wonder how long my luck will hold?
...A face only a mother could love.
What's not to love?
