I am cooking with wine, and by “cooking with wine” I mean sitting here typing into my laptop, sipping wine and waiting for the macaroni to cook. I am making macaroni and cheese with little hot dogs, mushrooms, and whatever else I decide to throw in at the time (about two more minutes now). Ah, Friday. The day I am happy the week is over and not yet annoyed with myself for not getting anything done over the weekend. And the home of Lame Post Friday. What can I come up with today?
OK, the stuff is in the oven. I am looking at true crime television. 20/20 on OWN right now, but I might switch it to Dateline: Secrets Uncovered on Oxygen. Oops, it is 20/20 on ID, on the channel OWN. 20/20 on OWN is on at six. I noted that just now when I went to double check which Dateline it was (I thought it was Real Life Mysteries, but I was mistaken). I don’t know why I go into such detail, but I feel better when I am strictly accurate.
I was supposed to have the minor Mohawk Valley adventure of driving into Rome this afternoon. However, when I left work snow was falling quite copiously. I called my mother and we decided to put the visit off. I hesitated because I felt it was the kind of day that, if I drove into Rome it would be horrible, but if I went home and put on my sweats, the sun would immediately shine. Mom did not think the sun was in danger of shining, and it turns out she was right. As I slid a few times driving home — and I don’t drive fast — I felt we had made the right decision.
I just checked on the macaroni and cheese. Note to self: stop trying to put mozzarella cheese in baked macaroni and cheese; it just gets gloppy. I seem to recall mentioning the glop factor in a previous blog post (I’m not going to look for it, although I may have tagged it “gloppy,” knowing me). Do I ever learn? Time will tell.
Well, friends, let’s call this a blog post and get back to enjoying our Friday. Happy Weekend, everybody!
