    Grilled cheese because I was deadly tired and grilled cheese is magic. Want to start that four-day meal plan/prep the good @Homer Potvin talked about earlier at some point here.

    Spaghetti tonight. It's leftover sauce - I made it a couple of days ago, so all I need to do is boil up the pasta and voila: dinner. I have a good supply of grated parmesan to give it some zip. I'll grind a lot of black pepper onto mine (I love black pepper) but not my roomie's, because anything within fifty miles of any kind of spice makes him hurl. One day I'm just going to give him boiled beef and boiled potatoes and boiled carrots without even any salt and see if he can choke it down. I bet he'll say it's the best thing he ever ate.

    And he's of Dutch descent, not Russian. Go figure.

    I've got nothing to say about Dutch food or how the Dutch relate to food. I don't even know what Dutch food is... can't think of any other nationality/ethnic group I can say that about. Weird.

    Burned the ever loving fuck out of my dinner tonight. But I smeared ketchup all over it (don't come at me, I love what I love), and it was fine. Made the whole house smell like burned bread though.

    Just about. I went from cooking on a gas stove at my parents' house to using electric again. While it's not too difficult to figure out, I'm used to the heat being what I say it should be instead of a steady "Hey, I'm HOT AS SHIT unless you have me on the lowest setting possible."

    Heineken is like McDonalds: if beer is legal, you can get it anywhere in the world. Also: Not very good, but consistently not very good. When you're in a bazaar in Turkey or at the Great Wall of China and you just need something you can kinda trust, Heineken is there.

    No thanks. I'll take whatever local beer they have over a Heineken. Barring that, any other local alcoholic concoction.

    Forgot to mention that my wife made this awesome broccoli dish tonight. Never thought I'd use "broccoli" and "awesome" in the same sentence, but if you can dress up broccoli, you can dress up anything. It had chickpeas, pine nuts, and parsley in the set, with garlic, lemon zest, dijon and some oil for a sauce. Really, really fucking good.

    That sounds great. Of course, I'd still feed the broccoli to the dog, but the rest of it sounds amazing :)

    Well that is better than stuffing it in the chair cushion. :p

    The dog would probably still end up eating it.

    Cheese. And waffles. I went to Amsterdam a couple of years ago, and they had any food you wanted - as long as what you wanted was cheese or waffles.

    I think it's because has is legal there, so everyone is so mashed up that they come out of the coffee shops and say whatever the Dutch equivalent is of "Man, I need to eat cheese", or "Waffle time!

    Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
    Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
    Brown paper packages tied up with strings
    These are a few of my favorite things

    Raindrops on roses and cheddar on waffles,
    Stuff your Yank burgers and French dish with offals,
    Ice cream and syrup with mayo on fries,
    Are things that the Dutch call culinary prize...

    My belief, dealing in stereotypes here, was that the Dutch were ‘rationalist,’ if there is such a thing & socially conservative by & large, Protestant, hooray.

    There’s a family story about Scottish IT guys arriving at Amro...and the populace horrified at:

    ‘Tha svearing..!’

    ‘Even da wimin...’

    And that’s why I don’t like @jannert

    Tonight it will probably be veggie stuff. Rice, plus a broccoli mix with cauliflower and carrots or something. If roomie wants meat, he can have some leftover ham.

    I might make myself a couple of cheese dogs. Maybe with bacon. Yum.
