Thursday Thoughts

Last Sunday was a super windy day. Ugh. I kept thinking we might end up in our very own version of the Wizard of Oz, roof blown off and house whisked away. Despite many brief power outages, we didn't lose power for any length of time, which is surprising. Both our parents lost power for about 12 hours & my parents now have a boil water advisory. Good thing I called them to ask about it because they had no idea. ??!!

The power flickering on & off so much did make cooking a bit difficult & frustrating. Each part of making the cake was interrupted by a brief power outage. Lots of devices beeping and rebooting. Last night we had a bunch of brief power outages, too, which made cooking the French toast and sausage a little difficult. Not so much the cooking because we can manually light the burners but the getting food in/out of the refrigerator.

Last weekend we saw Phantom of the Opera, which is one of my favorite shows. My parents went with us. My mom and I saw it years ago. I don't think my dad was too into it, but he enjoyed his dinner at Meat & Potatoes after the show. I had a special for dinner: Pork Schnitzel. I love schnitzel. I was served with gnocchi, Brussels sprouts, and mushrooms. Yum!
SP's birthday was on Tuesday. The older we get, the less we want to acknowledge our birthdays! SP got to pick the meals for this week, and the cake, but we haven't gone out for a birthday dinner, just the two of us. I'm not sure when we will because things are getting quite busy. This weekend we are having a family birthday dinner, but it's the dinner celebration for a birthday from last December. We're a little behind!

What We're Eating:

What We're Watching:

  • True Detective is over. I thought it was a good season. Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff were terrific. And I liked the ending.
  • We decided to watch the first episode of Whiskey Cavalier. It was fun. Don't think too much about the plot/realities of the situations and the consequences, just enjoy the ride.
  • I'm starting to worry about the direction of The Passage. This first season is a tiny, tiny bit of the first book and only 1, maybe 2 characters, I can't remember all the details from the book, but the current show characters except for 1 or 2 are not in what I consider the "main" story of the book, which is the story involving Peter and Alicia and that colony.
  • Thank goodness it appears Victoria & Albert are done squabbling and now Feo can focus all her scheming on finding her daughter a husband instead of making Victoria miserable. This Sunday is the last episode for Season 3.
  • This Sunday is also the last episode of Worst Cooks. I think I'm rooting for Team Red because from the very beginning, we've been hoping the ditzy girl on Blue Team would be eliminated but now here she is, the Blue Team finalist. 
  • The Gifted ended Season 2 and I like how it ended but overall it wasn't as strong as Season 1. 

What I'm Reading:

  • Magazines. As usual I've zipped through the food magazines but the Smithsonians are piling up. They've turned into my new National Geographic. I love both magazines, but they require more brain power than food magazines and sometimes, I just don't feel like using my brain!
  • I have a library book, but I'm having a hard time picking it up. I'm not sure why. Usually I love reading but lately, I just haven't wanted to dive into a book.
