Thursday Thoughts

It has not been a good lunch week. For one, SP convinced me that I should try the multi-grain English muffins. No. I should not have. They taste like cardboard. Lesson learned, yet again: the grocery store aisle multi-grain/whole wheat products are terrible and are not as "healthy" as they would have you believe. If you want healthy and tasty non-white breads, suck it up and pay the premium price for the good stuff at a good bakery.

Don't even get me started on the cheese. I like Swiss. Sure, sometimes he buys me Colby or smoked Gouda, and those weeks are a treat, but it's almost always Swiss and that's fine because a good Swiss is yummy. This is not a good Swiss. It's pale. It doesn't melt nicely. It has a weird texture. It tastes... well, it's tasteless. I finally figured out why when I looked at the tag on the deli package. He bought low sodium, low fat cheese. Why oh why would anyone buy me low salt/low fat cheese? Way to ruin cheese. He got an earful over that. He says it was a mistake.

So, to sum up, I am enduring 5 lunches of tasteless cheese inside cardboard.

What We're Eating:

What We're Watching:

  • Only one more Watchmen! Last Sunday was another great episode that answered some questions and pulled more threads together.
  • The series finale of Madam Secretary. I've enjoyed the show and this short final season seemed a bit rushed, but at least everyone got a send off/sense of what was next for them.
  • We watched Dumbo. It was fine. It was Disney.

What I'm Reading:

  • A Dark & Twisted Tide, the fourth and final Lacey Flint novel. It was good. Not as good as the previous three, but still good. Since it's been five years without a Lacey #5, I guess the series is done, but I wouldn't mind if Bolton decided to write more books with the characters.
  • Twisted Twenty-Six, the latest from Janet Evanovich. At least it seems like maybe things are going to make progress and not be the same old thing over and over. We'll see where the 27th book goes next year. 
  • Magazines.
