week in review

  • Gym three times this week, again. I'm really happy I've been able to keep it up. With the heart rate monitor, I'm also noticing that I've been able to exercise more strenuously before I reach my target HR.

  • Inscribed the ceiling design. Took about three hours. Started to paint it, and will probably finish this coming week.

  • Nic had Monday night off, and we tried Halibut's on Alberta, and then we decided probably never again. The next night, she went in but got sent home due to overstaffing, and made us dinner.

  • Friday night, we stayed up til 2 doing prep work for the next day's cooking, and spent the day Saturday making a turkey dinner for a bunch of friends. I contributed mashed potatoes, and green beans with lardons and caramelized shallots, and Nicole handled the turkey, stuffing, and two pies. We were pretty happy with the way everything came out, our guests were happy and had a ton to eat.

  • Sunday we watched about the first two-thirds of the Super Bowl at Betsy and Steve's, hung over and/or tired from the day before. Hit the sack at like 10.

I forgot to mention the part about the cheerleaders and blow, how we sneaked into the zoo and let all of the monkeys out, the knife fight you got into, and how we forged the winning Powerball ticket and narrowly escaped extradition after we moved to that villa in Corfu.

Nothing wrong, per se, just, yeah, overpriced. Also, pretty heavy on the oil. Hawthorne Fish House and Horse Brass are both less expensive and tastier, I think.

Interesting. I haven't been there in a couple years, so perhaps it has slipped. I used to go there when it first opened, and the owner (while a complete and utter freak) was pretty fanatical about keeping the oil temp and frying times precisely right. Horse Brass, OTOH, I always found to be over-cooked or somehow off. But it's been a while since I indulged in the fish and chips anyhow.

Love your lardons! :)

Though, it's possibly wrong to eat something with the word "lard" in it. But.. heck. I don't care!
