I am beginning to believe that this weather is a really cruel, extended April fool’s joke.
High of 49 today?
Oh, sure. That sounds about right.
It snowed on Monday?
Yeah, I’ll get on board with that.
I’m not done with my winter wardrobe yet?
Good, I was hoping to break out the Snuggie one last time.
However, I am a Chicagoan and a Norwegian.
Just as I believe all pizza should be loaded up with an inordinate amount of cheese, I am also made of hearty stock.
My people were vikings. We went into battle nekkid.
And it’s baseball season, my friends. I was planning on going to the Cubs game last night, and I’m not about to give up perfectly good (actually, better than good) tickets because of a little frost warning.
Besides, the nachos beckoned.
The game was disappointing and chilly, but the nachos were not.
That fake “cheese” sauce really retains its heat, I’ll tell ya.
Here’s the thing: my body does not appreciate “cheese” sauce. Today, I’m feeling a little sluggish and starved of nutrients.
Although, those jalapenos are a whole food and I ate all of ’em.
Tonight, I will be eating vegetables, thank you very much.
Nothing mindblowing here, just my standard roasted veggies.
And maybe some potatoes.
Because potatoes make the world go ’round.
And these skillet potatoes are the best. You just throw them in a skillet with a little bit of olive oil until they get a good tan, then thrown in a tablespoon or two of water and cover the pan to let them steam and get soft and pillowy on the inside, then you finish them in the oven (at 400° or so).
I’m going to enjoy my veggie heavy meal with a nice side of sweatpants and some quality TV. Or Bravo.
Side note: search term of the day is “tom selleck hamburger”. The fact that someone found my lowly blog with such a monumental query totally makes my day. I think I can retire now.
