meanwhile we had jiffy-mix pancakes
(break two eggs into the measuring-
-cup mixing bowl, add some milk,
fiddle around until, what the heck,
let’s just have the whole rest of
the package and just add as much
milk as it takes; stir with whisk).
some cooked in bacon fat (along with,
you guessed it, the bacon itself and
also a slice of ham). some cooked
in butter. serve with maple syrup
and butter. tap-water-&-frozen orange-
-pineapple juice. next up now that the decks
are cleared for action: lettuce-and-tomato
salad. add whatever’s handy.

so here’s a roasted chicken, mostly boned.
i’ve been eating the bits that didn’t slide
off the bone easily. the wings are something
of a pain, so i left ’em for later.

now to put everything away and *clean up*!

so we’re living pretty good in here.
ice tea. arnoldized with powdered-mix
“lemonade”, or not (two pitchers going
at once). oh, yeah. a random fried
egg (there was exactly one left from
an oldish carton). that’s about it
for me, for today. lots of coffee
as usual. whee!

soup pot and cutting board with love and squalor

madeline’s been going double-time on food
what with lots of grocery shopping *and*
lots of homemade goodness like (1) last
night’s potato soup (with skins-on “rooster”
potatoes & plenty of other yummy fresh
ingredients that she even *cut up* with
no prep work by me) and (2) last night’s
“cherry desert” which is this cake-mix &
canned-fruit thing (secret ingredient: butter;
top with koolwhip for extra deep decadent
selfindulgent sensory overload) she’s done
variants on several times now. you can’t see
the pan for (2) here since it’s glass
(and therefore standing by for the glass
*load* that’ll probably take place late
tonight or early tomorrow or so).

i’ve just been grazing on leftovers (and banging down
instant coffee; lots of sugar; milk [but alas no more
half-and-half… i indulged myself earlier this week]).
there’s burgermeat to cut up (& freeze most of). also
tortillas so i’m thinking maybe some kind of quesadilla
action’ll be about right for this afternoons “eps”
(of columbo or of murder she wrote or of the next
generation or what have you) but there’s leftovers
of *two* kinds of soup as well as a little of
the beer-bread. and orange and yellow green-peppers
cleaned (with red and green green-peppers standing by).
so who knows. i might *not* do much more kitchen work
before the next ep of the cooking show…

of guitar playing yesterday. i am content that
i have done right.

break’s winding down and of course i’ve left work
to do before monday morning. so the “dishdrainer”
series will probably slow down right about now
or stop altogether. for Domestic Arts in the Age
of Digital Distribution, i’m dishwasher owen
and i endorse this message.

mostly for madeline, if she wants it. i’ve been
eating the whole time, as usual. also there’s
plenty of leftovers. did i mention that i’m on
break? movie time!

why is PSL(2,7) isomorphic to GL(2,3)?

the plastic handled-mixing-bowl shown here…
i just checked… also has graduations
(up to a quart, i think… i didn’t check
*carefully*, evidently…). but it’s, yick,
plastic. you can see the tater-grater there
in the drainer. you can see the unwashed
egg-flipper, too, right there in front.
all is well *chez nous*. coffee!

cookie sheets rightly-so-called. (chocolate chip; yum.)

also this might be the first shot of our
very cool enormous-measuring-cup style
glass mixing bowl. with graduations and
a spout and… most useful of all…
a handle. there’s even a lid.
