i came on downstairs and put on some water for mac'n'cheeze (after washing the pot). As the water heated up I adjusted my ribbons, somewhat askew from sleeping and bathing yesterday (It's weird having something on my finger again after so long...). While the pasta was trying to boil over** I worked up the cheeze sauce and checked on the telly. It had reverted to the DVD menu (Alas, these Rebelde discs have no subtitulos and so the education value is greatly diminished to me.) and so I clicked to the next something (chapter, episode, story, season? capitulos) and let it run. And made my cheezy pasta and gorged a bit on it. Nom nom nom, as it were.
Now I've pulled out the onions and garlic from last episode and looked them over. They look okay, and having pulled ot the most knife-like things in the drawers I'm going to cut up a few. In combination with the canned (!) garbanzos I have here perhaps I will have some hummus to pack into work to supplement the hot dog supply.
Ha! Apparently today at least the cat is tragically startled bythe sound of knife hitting cutting board. The first time I cut the end off an onion she knocked her kibble and water bowl askew (fixed) nd this next time (other side, same onion) she skittered away after squeaking!
** When i make pasta, particularly the macaroni, I often get lots of foam that threatens to overcome the pot. Cooks and (o)chemists, any hints or explanations?
