I baked the porcini lasagne from Sunday last night and it was good, but not the best lasagne ever. I think porcini are better saved for risotto. It also needed more pesto. But it was good, if not great, and I saved a meal's worth for zoccolaro . I hope he shows up for dance practice tonight so I can give it to him.
Grandmother is still in the hospital, and given that her dementia is such she can't remember that she had surgery last week, hopefully she be able to stay for a little while. I've never really thought about how to administer medical care to someone who cannot remember anything. I wish there was something I could do for her. On the upside, neither of GM's parents have had a crises recently, and my mom's no worse than usual.
I'm not ready for the cook's playdate at West/AnTir yet. I need to pick out some recipes so I can do ingredient prep this weekend. GM's got his recipes picked out already, but they are all late period veggies from Castleverto, and some stuff from Scappi. I was thinking about picking out some lamb recipes from the Arabic corpus, but now I'm wondering if I shouldn't try some Spanish stuff instead.
I have resisted the siren call of the vending machine for more than a week now. Hopefully soon it will be off my habitrail. I'm thinking about giving up alcohol from after the West/An-Tir war until after my next birthday to see if it matters to my blood pressure and (hopefully) summer weight loss. I need to learn to resist the Friday donuts at work too.
I've been thinking a lot about the SCA recently, prompted only in part by the potential dissolution of the Shire of Esfenn. I've been (nearly) office-free for almost three years now. I'm not sure being office-free has actually reduced my stress levels.
