Chicken is in the oven sitting on some peeled whole young carrots acting as a trivet and the chix juices can baste them. Potatoes peeled and waiting their turn to cook.

Manchester United wins 4-zip. I 'd a put this part over in the tailgating/ sports thread but I'm not sure it gets read too much mid week.

Twiddling thumbs and about an hour to go. Open the Halloween candy bought two days ahead. What was I thinking !?!

I made a salad I can eat at my computer desk while I type. Find some music to turn up the volume with. I think I should move the bags of candy out to the garage or at least out of arm's reach. Thinking about it but not putting my shoes on. yet...

There was a recent newspaper article, a McDonald's Mgr brought in a stack of forms so all their employees who qualifiy, could sign up for Food Stamps. Like this was a good thing to be commended for helping employees. Well, no. How about paying employees a livable wage.

Well, there are many ways of giving. Whether it involves hiring your unemployed family members or friends to do repair work or painting that you could perform yourself, but they won't take an offer of assistance itself, or finding ways that most directly impact the people who are in need.

With all that said, I am making some chicken ( with plans for the leftovers later in the week.) More mash potatoes and gravy. I think I like gravy. Roasted carrots. I bought some pears today too.
Re companies not paying a decent living wage - A lot of the problem is at the feet of those of us who want cheap food, clothing etc., not necessarily because we can't afford to pay more but because we want what we consider to be a bargain. We are shocked at accounts of sweat shops in the third world, starvation wages paid to Polish and other eastern European temporary workers employed in agriculture in Britain and the attitude of companies like McDs and Walmart to their employees but fail to associate this with our own consumerism. If we want to feed our desire for strawberries at £1.99 a pound and jeans for £10.00 a pair someone has to pay the price and it isn't us, the customers.

Another lazy day for me. I opened two packages of Tasty Bite curries - channa massal (chickpeas) and Jaipur vegetables (navratan korma). We added some of PepperMaster's Stingin' Scorpion sauce and it was really, really yummy. Served over reheated brown basmati rice. Carlsberg accompanied our meal.

I better buy some more of those Tasty Bite curries. They are yummy (but practically no heat) and all natural (made with food, no artificial colours, flavours, thickeners, or preservatives).

All the best for tomorrow, Katy.
