Last night I had braised pork roundels with steamed baby carrots and tiny 
gold yukon potatos with a current sauce for the pork.  I also went shopping 
after work, made 12 lampwork beads and changed out a cat litter box for a 
new one and moved several ginger slices to a dehydrator.

Night before I had baked sea bass with a thin leek sauce over that and the 
bed of rice it was on with a small spinach and mandarin orange salad.  I 
also made 10 lampwork beads, put two pounds of sliced and boiled (multiple

menu ~ and they listen!  Next week I am making two versions of recipes of 
Mac and Cheese for the owner to try out.  He has been asked to add it to his 
menu by one of our gang and he is most willing.

But that is just me.....I'm a little odd.....
