At least my tabs peel right off, yours didn't. Well, my goal was to learn where every thing in the book is located to save time, looks like I'll have it memorized. My next goal is to have a handy chart with the codes we will be using the most.

I'm having an, um, discussion with Miss Clairol. Friday I had my usual every 6 months hair cut and waited until that was done to do my color.

I've been grey to a certain extent since I was 16, which runs in my family. Now that I'm in my 60s it seems that the grey invasion is accelerating. In about 20 minutes I'll be back to Glenn's dark-haired gypsy girl. Love my chemicals.

I'm about to start on dinner by making a lime and cumin vinaigrette for an avocado and tomato salad. Half of the dressing will act as a marinade for some chicken thigh meat that will accompany the salad along with some French bread.

Feel free to use the entire recipe or just the dressing. Avocado Salad with Tomatoes, Lime, and Toasted Cumin Vinaigrette Recipe : Bobby Flay : Recipes : Food Network

I'm using the dressing to marinate some chicken I will cook on my Cuisinart Griddler to go with the salad.

If I recall lime, cumin and sherry vinegar were part of the dressing I used in my avocado Cuban salad a month ago. Very nice flavor.
Off to look. I'll bet they are similar.

I am sitting here wanting to get started on making some Alfredo Pasta. But I am not hungry yet. I have been thinking about it for three days now. I wish I felt like eating. Instead I think I take a run downstairs on my scooter to get my mail.

Yup. Rice vinegar is an acceptable substitute of sherry vinegar. Your salad is just missing the black beans, which I'm not sure I entirely enjoyed in the salad anyway.

I'm wishing I had egg noodles for the Swedish meatballs I'll be making tonight, but the store was out of them yesterday. Who the heck runs out of egg noodles?
Maybe some parsley potatoes will suffice... or rice, but I've got fresh parsley I'd like to use up.

Eating an apple and wondering how much a nap will mess up my sleep schedule.
