I just spent the evening cooking and teaching trigonometry. Much more of the former than the latter; Kung Fu Monkey is vastly more math-smart than he gives himself credit for. I'm very proud of him-- he learns all good and stuff.

I'm not sure why I went on a cooking jag. I think I wanted to use up all the ingredients I picked up at the store today before I forgot what I was going to do with them. But I made a lot of stuff.

Steamed some fresh corn and a pair of artichokes for dinner (though we didn't actually get to the artichokes. Braised some fennel with onions, added a little bit of vinegar -- seems like it will be pretty good. Made a big bowl of tuna salad. Cooked up some sausage, onions, mushrooms, potatoes, and spinach; stuck it in a loaf pan with ricotta and mozarella to bake into a kind of noodle-less lasagna (or something-- I guess we'll find out when I stick it in the oven). Steamed baby zucchini, and got them all ready to broil and be parmesan-crusted. And finally, I poached some pears in red wine with pomegranate.

So I guess we'll be eating decently over the coming week...

I got a bar of Russian chocolate today. (Jen O. brought it back from her trip.) It was pretty tasty. "Red October" brand, so I am told.

And I stayed at work until 9 pm because I was working on one of those big chunks of work that you don't want to stop in the middle of. Gah. At least it's done now.

My brain is tired now. It's that damn russkie chocolate!
