Over at The Quagmire, Eric writes that he's picked up, among other things, a new Terry Pratchett book. As it turns out, I picked up Pratchett's sequel to Going Postal earlier today after I enjoyed a delicious Sandrine's creme brulee at their booth in Harvard Square, which was turned into a mini-fair to celebrate Oktoberfest.

I have a nasty cold. I hate having a cold. The endless nosedrip, the loud, annoying sneezes (a family characteristic I'm sure my co-workers are overjoyed to be experiencing), coupled with the new and exciting pain behind my right ear, which I can only assume is related (it started right before my cold)... Well, all this makes me rather cranky tonight. I'm even considering taking cold medicine (I've taken Advil for the behind-the-ear pain, as it was messing with my balance and making turning my head, a required motion in safe driving, quite difficult).

I've been playing with my crappy cell phone camera, because I've realized a cheap, easy way of adding content is by having a huge photo followed by a tiny blurb.

Wherein I start with a beef steak, some chicken breasts, and some peppers (red, green, yellow), and end up with a savory stew:
Just throw a bunch of stuff into a frying pan and see what happens
I'm calling it the Madman, as it fits well thematically with my ground beef Fiasco (not pictured) (yet).

I'm a fan of honey mustard dressing/sauce. I like it in salads, but I love it for dipping breaded bits of cooked chicken. For some reason, despite all the advantages afforded me (read: the Internet), I never bothered finding out how to make honey mustard. I instead experimented with existing honey mustard dressings, attempting to add various things to them to adjust the flavor to my preferences.

I dream of culinary sophistication while setting the bar low... Tonight's dinner? A bag of popcorn.
