Ten random things: September 23

Ten songs I listened to as I worked in the kitchen tonight:

  1. Hello Soundrack - Put On Your Sunday Clothes
  2. R.E.M. - Driver 8
  3. Elton John - Someone Saved My Life Tonight
  4. The Whites - Keep on the Sunny Side
  5. The Box Tops - A White Shade of Pale
  6. Link Wray - Batman Theme
  7. Billy Joel - Vienna
  8. Talking Heads - Burning Down the House
  9. The Staple Singers - I'll Take You There
  10. Tift Merritt - Wait It Out

So last night I was experimenting in the kitchen, trying a variation on a recipe I've made several times and always enjoyed, and this evening I tasted the fruits of my labor. And I was not impressed. It wasn't bad exactly, just flavorless and dry, and I found myself not at all looking forward to eating it for the next two days. (I find cooking for one kind of a hassle, so I cook for several and eat it over the course of several days.) So when I got home I diced the remaining chicken breasts, chopped up and sauted some mushrooms I had left over from a few days ago, cooked up some chopped broccoli I had in the freezer, and made a pasta bake. Which I haven't tried yet, but I think will be much more palatable.
