Dr. Pepper / 7-Up Ballpark
By now, our guests are back on Long Island, and it's quiet and a little sad around here. I hope they enjoyed their visit, which was mostly about baseball, recording, eating, and shopping. I want to thank them again for bringing me some good coffee, and the CLASSICAL LOON cd, which was an awesome surprise. And I want to encourage everyone to go to support minor league baseball. It is good. And fun.
Last night, Kev and I had one of his sandwich creations for dinner: the French Connection 2, I think it's called. I made French toast, and we filled it with scrambled egg, ham, and cheese. It was really good. I usually make sweet French toast, by adding cinnamon, vanilla, and orange juice to the egg mixture, but this time, I just used salt and pepper so it would be more sandwich-bready. And we had a delightful fruit and yogurt combo on the side, which is something I recommend for all of you who were blogging about breakfast options. It is quick and cheap and very healthy. Add some granola for extra crunchy fun! Then after dinner, we watched the Aviator on PPV, boy that Howard Hughes was a crazy guy.
I spent 2 hours this morning at the eye doctor's office so that she could tell me nothing's changed since last time, or for that matter, the last 5 or 6 years. It now costs me $150.oo per year for her to tell me that, and it is required by the state of Texas that I go once a year. I will not go on about how much this infuriates me. And now I don't have time to go to Central Market, so I guess I'm gonna have to Iron Chef tonight's dinner. What can you do with half a watermelon, some gnocci, and some canned corn?
