After a rather horrible blogging week (culminating in a Lame Friday Post that got zero Likes!), I find I must have a Slacker Saturday. Or maybe it’s a blogger’s sick day. At any rate, I intend to just type in some nonsense, hit Publish and get on with my evening.
First some complaining: my head is spinning. I had a headache every day this week. When I woke up with the beginning of one this morning, I foolishly took some migraine medication. Oh well, sometimes dizziness is better than pain. It hasn’t been totally bad all day. I got a few chores done: three loads of laundry, a (very) little cleaning and a trip to the store. Oh, shout-out to a local business! The post won’t be a total loss.
I went to T & J’s Fruits and Vegetables in Herkimer, NY (where I live). I had taken some sausage out of the freezer for dinner and wanted a green pepper to go with it. There were red peppers there too, but I decided on one green one for tonight. I picked the one I liked best. Then I saw some eggplants that looked nice. Eggplant, pepper and sausage. What could be better?
When I put them on the counter I saw some homegrown strawberries. Yum! The lady at the register recommended some cherries that were there as well. I put my stuff down and said I just wanted to make sure there wasn’t something else there I’d like. I was glad I did, because I had almost forgotten we’re out of yellow onions. Sausage and pepper without onion? Say it ain’t so! I got some of the strawberries but declined the cherries.
Driving home I remembered garlic. Damn! I had pulled the last bulb off the braid I had gotten at the Mohawk Valley Garden and Herb Festival in Little Falls last September (come to think of it, that braid lasted a LONG time. I must not be cooking enough). When I got home I checked and there are still a few cloves left. Phew!
I feel certain my dizzy head will allow me to cook dinner without major mishap. Perhaps I could write a post about it tomorrow on Wrist to Forehead Sunday.
