Evening recap... [Jan. 28th, 2007|09:20 pm]
Verminius Rex
The annual birthday dinner went well. I estimated about 14 possible people showing up, reserved a table for 16 and got a table for 18. A total of 15 folk were there (pardon me for not listing you all, I'm just too lazy to try right now.) On an amusing note when we arrived two friends were just ahead of us waiting to be seated, so we gathered them into the fold for dinner. Marz and I split an appetizer and pizza that means I get to eat real well for the rest of the week to make up for all that grease, and actually skipped dessert since we were full. Big thanks to Sister for watching Thing 1 and Thing 2 for a couple hours.

Now with luck Kiyan will sleep, so we can all be rested for our Monday morning. This week's plan, among other things, is to make a quadruple batch of dough. I'm still working on seeing if the manufacturer was telling the truth that the mixer can do 15 pounds of dough. Last batch was about 7.5, a triple batch of my usual dough (Alton Brown's basic bread recipe, although I upped the quantity 50% to make larger loaves.)

I'm also hoping to make next Game Day with my Talisman board game in hand, but we'll have to see what next weekend holds before planning that far ahead.

Happy birthday! Sorry I missed the dinner. Between Thomas and just wanting to savor being HOME, I didn't stir from my apartment all weekend.
