Photos: Prelude to Actual Activity

This is Ellie, who used to race under the name Cosmo Opal. She's my parent's Grayhound, a rescue through MGAP - the Maritime Grayhound Adoption Program - whose been living with them for precisely as long as I've been moved back home. "Owning" a greyhound has actually taught me a fair amount about doing your research - they're nothing like the rambunctious, exercise-heavy beasts you learn about. This one would rather sleep, and really won't stay active for more than about a half hour.

Over the course of my new employment I've gone from eating a shamefully large amount to fast food to cooking my own meals - mostly using a small set of culinary techniques you might call my favourite brushes. Naturally I need something that reheats well once you've gotten it to the office, and the list of foods I know of that have "plays well with microwave radiation" as a feature are pretty slim. Lots of pastas in sauces.

This one on the left here is fusilli in veloute (chicken veloute if you want to get precise). The fusilli was cooked in the water from boiling the beet sections, and a small amount of that water was added to the sauce, which is where this marvellous colour comes from.
Ellie and Schmoolie. Schmoolie's the bully out of the two of them.

As you may or may not have noticed, it's been over a month since my last activity. Don't worry! I'm coming back soon, and this time I have a whole stack of things to work through - the Rob Ford saga, a new Apostolic Exhortation, funny tales from the road, and possibly some more video game stuff. Hopefully there will be a breakthrough now - I'm out of mental ink, and it seems to be on backorder!
