Not Much of a Post

...but a post.

I'm currently enjoying some brownie and ice cream. The bad thing about making brownies when you live by yourself is that you then have a lot of brownie to eat. And, unfortunately, my sister's ex-boyfriend, J, didn't eat enough brownie during his visit.

During J's visit, I got the feeling that he IS doing much better. He seemed like himself from a couple of years ago. Good for him! In addition to no longer having the something's-not-quite-right look in his eyes, he also has a pretty sweet job waiting for him after his road trip.

J and I ate at Meskerem last night. I love injera perhaps a bit too much.

Food Tonight
When I'm by myself, I tend to eat simply. Typical dinners include the following: chick'n patty sandwiches, scrambled egg sandwiches, random vegetables cooked in scrambled eggs, and salad consisting of whatever vegetables I have.

But, tonight, I actually cooked a meal that had a main dish and a side dish. Rosemary-garlic chicken with steamed green beans.

Easy, but a nice change from sandwiches and/or eggs.

Food This Weekend
I'm going to Chicago this weekend to visit KT and BD, who are my most favorite people in the world after Porkchop. My assignment is to figure out where I want to eat. We're definitely going to hit a vegetarian Indian place around the Devon Street area, but other than that, the possibilities are wide open.

This is tough.

So many choices.

That's It
Told you it wasn't much of a post. I have to read, call Porkchop, look at restaurants in Chicago, and pet Keetah (who is being super-cute right now. She was also so precious this morning as she slept with one paw on my arm.).

Good night!

Porkchop has added some photos to her blog (since I sent her the USB cable for her phone over the weekend). This post is my favorite. Because people are cute in respirators.

I'm glad you made a real dinner for yourself.

I made spaghetti again tonight. I had a bunch of it. Then took a nap for an hour or so. Then woke up and had another giant bowl. And there was still enough for lunch tomorrow! (Or perhaps a midnight snack.)

I'm going to turn into a spaghetti noodle.

I developed a friendship w/ some elderly neighbors across the street and was always sending them over half a cake or pie. Made their day and there was less in the house for me! Know any old folks? Or you can always dump the brownies off at work.

Today I made a tomato soup cake. Really! Haven't tasted it yet though.

For me the highlight of any trip to Chicago is dining in Greektown. I recommend the saganaki (flaming cheese) at the Greek Islands on Halsted St. Then go over to Pegasus and have a glass of wine on the roof.

Mmmmm...flaming cheese.

I will keep this suggestion in mind!
