An Autumn Thunderstorm and Dinner at Home Experimenting with Blue Cheese Panini Sandwiches
I spent my morning writing posts for the blog, which will go live periodically in the future so I can get work done this week, before deciding I wanted to run to the grocery store to get ingredients to make a late lunch or early dinner for everyone. It was a madhouse. Right as I was walking to my car with the groceries, it began to rain. Within a few minutes, it was pouring, with lightning flashing everywhere. I didn’t want to be on the main roads with the traffic so took the back routes home, pulling in as the tempest raged outside.
To the sound of thunder and driving rain, we ended up going with panini sandwiches on eight wheat bread, with blue cheese, arugula, cranberry chutney, apricot, mayonaise, smoked turkey, and almonds, drizzled in olive oil, along with a side of smoked gouda, kettle potato chips, and sweet tea. It was an adaptation of the Williams-Sonoma recipe I mentioned yesterday when I talked about the egg white omelette recipes with which we have been toying. For dessert, we had Nestlé Toll House chocolate chunk cookies with fresh, hot black coffee. After which, I promptly turned on the Playstation 3 and turned my attention to the new mining operations I acquired in the game. Art imitates life.
It was one of the most enjoyable days I’ve ever had. Sometimes, it is the really simple things in life that give it meaning. Everything else is a distraction. I’ll probably spend my evening reading.
Acquiring the mine in the game made me realize I could talk about a special type of investment with which some of you may be unfamiliar. I’ll start working on that when I have an opportunity.
