Thursday Thoughts

I'm avoiding the news today because I'm pretty sure I'll hear a whole bunch of things that will make me want to scream. Kind of like nearly every day since 8 November 2016. But some days are worse than others and I expect today will be a bad one.

This past weekend my parents invited themselves to dinner! Their apartment kitchen & dining room are being remodeled and for 2 weeks they have not had a stove or microwave or dishwasher. The kitchen has been blocked off by a plastic tap. They were in Las Vegas for most of week 1, then either dined out/ate sandwiches. The project is a bit behind schedule so it'll be more like a 3 week project. They wanted a "real" meal, so they offered to bring dinner if we'd cook. We said OK. They brought steak. We don't usually eat steak. These ones were so good. Really good. Really, really good. Probably the chef, right SP? He is a good griller.

What We're Eating:

What We're Watching:

  • We have 2 more episodes of American Vandal Season 2. We are enjoying the Case of the Turd Burglar.
  • "Regular" TV is starting up. This week we watched the premieres of Big Bang Theory, Sheldon, This Is Us, The Gifted, and Modern Family.
  • Tonight Shonda TV returns, although without Scandal. Two hours of Grey's Anatomy and one hour of HTGAWM tonight. I can't remember if Station 19 is coming back to Thursday TV or not?
  • Another season of Worst Cooks in America ended. I was happy with both finalists and had no strong feelings about who should win. The pasta the Oklahoma girl made looked awfully tasty.
  • Halloween Baking Championship started. We love the Halloween one best of the seasonal baking championship shows. 

What I'm Reading:

  • I finally finished Still Me by Jojo Moyes. I couldn't remember if I'd read the first or second or both (or neither) of the trilogy, so I checked out both to read (re-read) before reading the recently published third book. Turns out I had read both. I flipped through them, just to refresh my memory, and then picked up Still Me, which I enjoyed. A good conclusion to the series.
  • Magazines. Lots of magazines. My mom brought over a few, the new ones arrived. The pile is a little scary.
