Tweet of the Day, I Ate At Arby’s edition.

Their new Wagyu Steakhouse Burger? It’s nice. Mind you, I don’t think it’s ‘Wagyu’ by any definition except the absolute minimum legal one necessary to avoid losing a lawsuit. But it still tasted pretty good!

Frankenberry Tarts.

Actually Blueberry Turnovers, but things got a little… weird. Starting with the fact that I used crescent dough, not puff pastry. In my defense I had not realized that you find the latter in the frozen food section.

Still, they tasted fine, if a bit sticky. We ate them all, right quick. That’s the important thing.

Present wrapping!

Done before Christmas Eve, too. WHAT SORCERY IS THIS

…Seriously, it’s weird to get this done ahead of time. Pleasant, but weird. But now we can spend tomorrow preparing for all the other stuff. Like the meal: Christmas dinner is going to be a New York Strip Roast. I didn’t want to do a standing rib roast because there’s only going to be the two of us eating it… and then I was seduced by the strip roast, because it looked so nice at the butcher’s, so what could I do but buy it uncut?

Now I have to convince myself not to get overly fancy with it. We have the roast, asparagus, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. That’s fine for Christmas dinner. That’s fine.

Early night tonight (Cookery suggestions welcome).

I’ve got a full weekend ahead; Halloween approaches, and we’re going to have a proper one this Sunday. Which means, among other things, that I need to come up with good snack food for the day. Something simple, harvest-style (not spooky-style), and with as little cooking as possible. I’d make a gallon of hot cider, but I’m the only one who’d be drinking it…

No question, straight up.
