... was all that but no bag o' chips. We didn't need a bag o' chips when we had this:
|Out of the broiler|
|Dinner is served!|
We got off to a rocky start this evening when we discovered our range isn't furnished with a broiler pan, the first such ever in my experience. But that's OK, for we happened to know where a broiler pan was lurking, so we hastened over to ECMdP and retrieved it; crisis averted. Everything after that was pretty much bid'niz as usual, and everything came together more or less on time and in the sequence desired.
We fixed enough for me and everyone who threatened in comments yesterday to drop by for dinner this evening. But that's the normal state of affairs when you're cooking for one. That's a Good Thing, though... tomorrow's dinner is just a matter of re-heating tonight's leftovers. And we have a LOT of those.
Oh, yeah: it was fucking GREAT! And now it's time for After Dinner Whiskey Hour and some vintage Bowie.
