Thanksgiving musings whilst hungry at work

Aside from what will presumably be a main course protein of turkey, I've begun assembling some recipes that I've either clomped together myself or have drawn from another wonderful person or source and modified slightly or more significantly.

This one is unmodified, pulled from the Washington Post food section because it just sounds delicious.

This one I nabbed from a lovely food blog ( and modified slightly for my own taste.

This last one is a standard goat cheese custard that I've modified as either a rosemary or rosewater custard.

To be continued...

Wednesday. I've been doing a lot of thinking about headaches recently. This is most likely due to the headache, whose company I've been entertaining for the past 36 hours. I'm starting to toy with the idea that Lunesta may have some secondary uses as a pain reliever/anti-inflammatory. An idea only spurred by the fact that I continue to receive mailed warnings about my recent all-too-innocent Lunesta prescription. I'm so thoroughly terrified of becoming dependent on the stuff that I've only used it maybe 5 times in the past 3 weeks, I heardly think there's much danger that I'll become some strung-out Lunesta-peddling drug dealer.
Whilst I bitch - also endemic are hair and skin troubles. The haircut I liked when I got it has now decided on its true identity as the dreaded "mom" haircut. (None of the perks of motherhood with all of the dowd!) And my face has decided that its topmost 60% is 50 years old and it's bottom 40% is 14.
At least tomorrow's payday.
