So begins another week. Unfortunately I did not get up and run this morning, as scheduled, but I will make up for it this afternoon with an hour of cardio and then a longer run tomorrow morning.

Sunday was a good day: Mass, lunch with friends, home to clean and restore some sort of order to the chaos which is my apartment. I also made some applesauce yesterday which turned out to be AWESOME! I used the fresh, local apples we picked up in Hendersonville Saturday and added just a touch of cinnamon. In the past, I've added sugar to sweeten it up a bit, but this year, I decided to leave it out. I used all Rome apples and they are perfect for making applesauce because they are tart yet slightly sweet. The sweetness really came out of them and now I have a yummy, relatively healthy snack for the next few days. So let's I can make applesauce, a few Greek appetizers, stir-fry, Great Grandma's Baked Spaghetti--LOOK OUT! :) I wonder if Mrs. Dell thinks I am ready to buy one of those fancy kitchen gadgets from Sur La Table yet?!

Tonight I am planning to work out with FT and then I am off to Bible Study. Afterwards, I will be racing back to my apartment to watch the second half of the Cincinnati vs. Baltimore game! I am so disappointed that there is a double-header tonight, causing the aforementioned game to start at 7:00 p.m. rather than the normal 9:00 p.m. UGH! Oh well. As long as I get to see some of it, I will be happy. I'll be even happier if (when) the Bengals win! WHO DEY!!

Sure, there is a Sur La Table in Richmond! The bigger problem with Sur La Table is not so much having a use for them/being able to use them as much as the price of the stuff they sell. It was more of a point of why waste the money unless you are seriously into cooking. I don't think I've bought anything but little stuff there like utensils. I prefer to suggest gift cards for birthdays, etc. to Williams-Sonoma.

Even a little spatula would be fun! :-) It would be my "fancy" utensil!

For a cheap but eminently useful item from SlT, how about a SILPAT or two? They even make them small enough for our convection toaster oven. A small SILPAT on a wire rack in the toaster oven is now my default method for baking one or two servings of cookies. The cookies are always hot, and the house smells like baking cookies. What's not to like.


But, like Mrs. Dell, I tend to order more through W-S.
