Just a few minor updates to catch everyone up on the minutiae of my life:
Yesterday: I worked. It was work. After work I went home and the manfriend came over and made some burgers on the grill. We mixed some garlic and barbecue sauce right into the meat. Topped with a slice of cheddar and some avocado, those were some pretty tasty burger. He also made some grilled corn for him (I skipped that part) and I did a large russet potato. I cut it into four big slices, added some garlic butter and wrapped it in foil to bake on the grill. Potatoes are pretty good that way. I think the burger was the most exciting part of my day.
Today: Again, I am at work. After work mf is coming over so we can grill again. Yes, we are very boring. Anyway, I made a quick marinade of soy, ponzu, sesame oil and brown sugar. I zipped it up with a little dijon mustard and some red chili paste. It was sweet and tangy, so I reserved some to reduce and make a glaze. The rest I poured over a pork tenderloin soak for the next 8 or so hours. I plan to make some basmati rice and sauteed spinach with sesame seeds to go with that.
Tomorrow: Some friends of mine are having a 1st birthday party for their daughter. She is a cute, fat little thing. I still need to get a gift. I am thinking books. I love "Where the Wild Things Are" and her dad said she doesn't have that. So that is a given. I probably also will get some of the Dr. Seuss books. Every kid needs those. That is the afternoon. I think the evening will be just relaxing at home, maybe doing some chores.
Monday: I have my pottery class in the morning. I don't have any firm plans for the afternoon, but it would be nice to just relax. If I can get all my chores done Sunday, then I can be lazy Monday afternoon. Oh, and I probably will grill again.
Maybe something more exciting will happen or I will think of something insightful to add to the blog. Maybe not.
