Thursday Thoughts

Last Saturday we went to Bistro 19 for dinner. Still one of our favorite places, especially because of the Lemon Pepper Calamari with citrus caper remoulade appetizer. Here's what else we ate:
  • Cider & Maple Braised Short Rib with gnocchi and carrots
  • Jurgielewicz Farm’s Duck Breast (sweet tea blackberry glaze, warm chipotle potato salad, duck cracklins, green beans)
  • Dessert:  Lemon Crème Brulee (whipped cream, fresh raspberries)
The bugs are winning. I think we've smushed 5-6 crickets in the past month. In one day we captured 4 stink bugs. One night a moth terrorized me, flying right at me and then flitting like a drunk all around the bedroom at bedtime. Yesterday a spider decided to crawl on my arm. Then there's the house centipedes - the count is 3 since vacation. I heard SP killing a wolf spider last night and he claims it was a monster one. Ugh ugh ugh.

It's Day 13 of my cold and I think I might actually be better by the weekend. I'm no longer drinking cold/flu medicine or filling the trash cans with tissues.

What We're Eating:
  • Smoked pork, macaroni salad, garden tomatoes
  • Prosciutto, fontina, tomato, arugula panini
  • Dessert: Cinnamon Swirl Cookies
  • Snacks: Extra Cheddar Goldfish Crackers and Whisps Parmesan Crisps
What We're Watching:
  • We finished Season 1 of The Wire. I enjoyed re-watching and SP enjoyed watching for the first time. We'll watch the other seasons at some point, but the new television season is starting, so it'll be a while.
  • Big Bang Theory is back and we gave Young Sheldon a try. It was pretty good. We'll see if we can stick with it.
  • This Is Us - I have such a love/hate relationship with this show. I love the stories, the acting, how the characters interact, but I hate that every single week it makes me cry.
  • We're sticking with The Deuce on HBO. So far, so good.
  • Designated Survivor is back! Why can't Kirkman be our real president? 
  • Tonight is my night to send SP to the basement with instructions to not bother me for 3 hours as I enjoy the return of Grey's Anatomy and HTGAWM. Unless, of course, I scream in terror and need rescuing from a cricket/wolf spider/stink bug. Then he better get his butt up the stairs super fast and the heck with his TV shows.
What I'm Reading:
  • Or not reading. That might be more accurate. I had to renew a couple books. Again. And I had to return one because I couldn't renew it and I didn't get to it. I have no idea what's wrong with me.
  • I managed to read Enemy of the State, the latest Mitch Rapp novel, and it was pretty good, better than the others written after Vince Flynn's death.
  • I also managed to read one of the 6 magazines in that pile. I found more than usual of interest in this issue of Food & Wine.
