Waffle Day rolls around again. The first day of the week. Today is new toy day too. My sous vide heater is all set up to cook rosemary chicken for dinner tonight. Fresh sprig of rosemary sits in the fridge with the thawing breast. A little salt, a little pepper, some olive oil.
I was going to brown the breast in a skillet because I didn’t want to get a propane head for the torch, but one genius mentioned that he used an electric heat gun. Viola! I got one of those in the tool chest, sitting unused all these years. Who knew a tile tool was a cookery item!
My new kitchen island is set up, and we are migrating some kitchen utensils over to it. But it still reeks of linseed oil and I have set up a box fan to air it out. So far it has been airing out for a day, and it is still stinking up the house, albeit a little less today … either that or I am getting used to the stench. But we desperately needed the counter space, and when the stink is gone, it will be a fine addition to our kitchen.
I got stuff. Lots of stuff. And I need to get rid of stuff. I wonder if I could just give it to a flea market seller and split the take. If I trusted a flea market maven, that is … and that is the problem. I don’t want to sit out in a lawn chair all day while people pick through my stuff.
And I have a mirror cut into a magen David that needs to be remounted over the mantel. It somehow fell off the hook, but only damaged the wood parts that I could repair. I need to make a more secure mount for it yet. Maybe this week it will get done.
And new metal numbers for the mailbox. The neighbors got the kitchen island, and hand carried the 200 lbs of material over to my yard when the delivery man left it at the wrong address. That will be a priority to get them mounted when they arrive later this week.
But for the moment … there is coffee and a computer keyboard …
