Three Beautiful Things 09/05/09:Dinner Time, Dinner Challenge, Olivia to Eugene (Molly, too)

1. First, a little appetizer: some smoked salmon on stone wheat crackers -- then sautee indulgently peppered Walla Walla sweet onions in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, throw Rocky spinach feta sausages in the pan, toss a mixed green salad dressed with Blue Cheese vinaigrette with a dollop of cottage cheese on the side, mix some water and corn starch and some of the onions with the sausage drippings to make gravy, pour the gravy over microwaved leftover Basmati rice, sidle the sausage right up to the gravy, pour a tall glass of ice cold distilled water and there it is: the dinner I fixed for myself tonight. Still have three sausages and some gravy left over -- they might taste good with some russet potatoes tomorrow....

2. Snug smiled at me with the return this evening of the Squirrel Dude. The Dude makes eating breakfast and dinner much more challenging.

3. It's confirmed: Molly and Olivia will arrive in Eugene on September 28 and stay until October 10.
