Thursday Thoughts

Last weekend we spent quite a bit of time out on the deck, enjoying the sunshine.

SP has been working a lot. He's on call this week and, well, I don't ask much, but there have been issues so he's been working a bit in the evenings, too, before our tea/dessert/TV time.

Our deck herbs seem to be doing well this year. This week we used a lot of mint for the fattoush. It was nice to have an all vegetable meal after last week's lamb burgers and this week's beef burgers.

What We're Eating:

What We're Watching:

  • We watched Giri/Haji (Duty/Shame), a British TV show that is on Netflix streaming. It's set in London & Tokyo with dialog in English & Japanese. It's about a Tokyo detective who travels to London in search of his brother who was previously assumed to be dead. The brother has been accused of murdering the nephew of a Yakuza member which threatens to start a gang war in Tokyo. We really, really enjoyed the 8 episode show.
  • I've been watching My Brilliant Friend (HBO). I finished season 1, started season 2, and have 2 episodes left. I am really enjoying the show and it's making me think a lot. I have not read the books, but maybe I will.
  • We watched the third and final episode of Quiz on BBC (or maybe it aired on AMC?). The show tells the story of Charles Ingram, a former British army major, who caused a major scandal after being caught cheating his way to winning £1 million on the game show 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?' He and his wife were found guilty of cheating, but the show leaves some doubt about if they really are guilty.
  • We got caught up on John Oliver, Worst Cooks Celebrity Edition, Ina - Cook Like a Pro, and Valerie's Home Cooking. Ina made some really delicious sounding dishes on the latest show: Cauliflower Toasts (with gruyere, mascarpone, prosciutto), Baked Zucchini & Spinach (with rice, gruyere, cream, basil), and Spiced Lamb Stuffed Eggplant (with ricotta, goat cheese, mint).

What I'm Reading:

  • Magazines.
  • I have a new library book! I just haven't started it yet.
