Day 340: Slow, slow, quick, quick, slow

December 6, 2007

The day in brief:

    • New haircut (I asked if he could make the colour and cut last 4 years, please)
    • New undergarments (oh the power of fitting things. I’ll say no more on that)
    • Loss of one infant hat (Baby N has been very upset this evening ever since. Are the two events related?  Who knows)  

The dinner in brief:

  • Sweet Italian sausage fried= enormous amount of oil
  • Onions, garlic, red pepper flakes and Swiss chard added to the meaty oil
  • White wine and chicken stock dilute the oil
  • Cooked gnocchi floats around in oily liquid
  • Parmigiano cheese thickens the oil ever so slightly

Observations on dinner:

  • Actually quite oily
  • And ridiculously salty
  • Who knows what Swiss chard tastes like? It seemed very salty. And oily
  • Too much gnocchi to classify as dumplings, too much water to classify as a sauce
  • Therefore, neither a soup nor a stew, but rather a water-logged meal.

On the plus side:

  • It was very quick and easy to make


    • Tomorrow we will be having Turkey Stroganoff Noodle Toss
    • That sounds like something  we have already eaten
