Miracles of the season!

First, to put a smile on your face:
An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car. He says, "Sir, have you been drinking?"

"Just water," says the priest.

The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?"

The priest looks at the bottle and says, "Good Lord! He's done it again!"


Second: today (well, technically YESTERDAY since it's past midnight) was a culinary experiment... once I woke up this morning, I started chopping veggies (broccoli, carrots, celery, onions), and dumped them into a crock-pot along with pre-washed & sliced mushrooms, 3 chicken breasts and half a bottle of barbeque sauce, and let it cook for 8 hours. It's my first crock-pot experiment! Turned out okay... the broccoli florets were pretty much disintegrated, and the chicken was slightly dry I think because it was cooked a bit too long, and it needed to be at the bottom of the pot in order to be soaking in the sauce... but still totally edible :-)

We are going to experiment with the crock-pot more: need to prepare more meals at home in order to control portion size and to reduce the amount of times we eat out (or carry out) weekly!!

And once the crock-pot had been set-up, I sauteed some chopped onion and a sliced smoked polish sausage, then poured into the pan a mixture of 3 eggs, 3 tsp milk and some garlic. Scrambled the mixture. Loaded it with shredded cheese, so it would melt into the eggs. mmmMmmMMmMMmmmm!! Split that with Kosh for a late brunch.

Tomorrow (Or technically later today) is BBQ Beef Ribs day again, whoohooo!

Kosh wondered the other day: if this item was available EVERY day, would I insist on getting it as often as once a week? In other words, do we make it a point to get it every Friday only because it's only available on Fridays? Yeah, probably :p

Gosh darn it, it's less than 48 hours to 2006?!
