Sounds like a good day for my chicken Nacho's. For me the Academy Awards is my Super Bowl Sunday. I can hardly wait.

I kinda overdid it with my healing wrist while making dinner tonight so I voted for leftovers tonight. I think it'll be minestrone and buttered rolls.

I like the idea of nachos. Got some more 49˘ avocados at Aldis today, but none were close to being ripe, so no quac for the chips today.

Lazy day, gloomy weather, absolutely nothing on TV. Rather than fuss in the kitchen, I'm going to slack off and read all day and make grilled cheese sandwiches with homemade bread and tomatoes. We still have potato salad from a couple days ago, and I have a few emergency cans of Progresso soup in the basement. We'll clean out one or two of those. Sounds like supper to me!

today was our fund raiser at church for our youth group. We did a baked potato bar, with salad and soups and homemade desserts. It was awesome. I was and wrapped 105 pounds of potatoes from Costco yesterday and cooked them this morning.

Well, I'm going to be watching the awards with both my mother and step-mother in Torrance this evening. I think they have some frozen flounder in the fridge so I'll probably fry up some of those and have steamed rice, kimchi, and miso soup on the side.

I don’t like avocados too much, so I don’t know if this is true or not. I think I remember hearing that you can nuke underripe avocados to soften them. True or not?

I tried that way back, but it didn't help - softened them a little, but the flavor didn't improve, as it does, with ripening.

I'm not a big fan of avocados, except in guacamole - especially in the summer, with dead ripe tomatoes, and those favorite peppers, the Hanoi Markets. As much as I love garlic, IMO garlic seems to cover up some of the flavors in it; I still tried the last new recipe, even though it had the garlic, and the same thing seemed to happen.
