I've been half-toasted tonight. It was a mellow day for me. I discovered Quinn. It' a freeware game for Macs that much resembles Tetris. Tetris was one of my favorite games way back when. I always thought it was to my benefit that I never owned it. That is until today when I downloaded Quinn. Once I managed to get the keyboard programmed properly, the default settings were right-handed, the afternoon passed in a flash. Alex was out and about shopping in the city and I could play blissfully uninterrupted. I knew he wouldn't be particularly pleased with my afternoon's endeavors but he got a parking ticket and so had to bite his tongue.
Anyway, dinner was a quick affair. Seared flank steak in a cast iron skillet, arugula salad with marinated tomatoes, a beautiful cheese that Alex had picked up at Murray's and half-toast. What is half toast? It's what happens when you have beautiful, slightly past it's prime bread that calls for a delicate, crispy char to bring it back to life. Take a shortcut and only toast one side of the bread and you have half toast. All I can say is that I'm pretty sure my husband will never attempt to slip that past me again. Toast should be golden and crispy on both sides and that's all I'm going to say about that.
Happily Alex had a productive day shopping. We have gorgeous little ramps, fresh eggs, beautiful greens, fresh kimchee, and some delectable meats from Ottomanelli's. Something to look forward to playing with tomorrow.
