#3193: Now it hardly hurts at all, and the food is good.

As expected, the pain has gone away. Once in a while I get a bit of a zing! out of the affected area, but I'm back to being able to type and do whatever else I want to do.

The burgundy beef I made (that's the name of the recipe on the broth can label) tastes pretty good. I don't know that it was worth getting burned for--certainly if step 2 in the recipe was always going to be "get 2nd degree burn from bacon grease" I would never make it again--but it's got great flavor. This recipe is actually meant to be made 100% on the stove, but I--as I'd planned to when I decided to try it--modified it such that it spent most of its time in the crock pot. I just cooked the bacon and browned the meat in a frying pan, and then transferred it to the crock pot.

I served it over a bed of egg linquini, but next time I make it I think I'll dump in a can of potatos instead. This would probably make a pretty good stew recipe if one were to remove all the stuff and thicken the broth.

I did not sleep well last night. I might have gotten as much as 1.5 hours. So once my finger stopped hurting (thanks, viscous lidocaine!) I was able to get a couple more hours of sleep.

I read the entirety of the Usagi Drop manga yesterday on The story threw me for a loop when, at the beginning of a new chapter, it essentially said, "TEN YEARS LATER...." it moved ahead ten years: Daikichi was now 40, Rin and Kouki were now 16, etcetera. I was disappointed with the way several elements of the story were resolved.

Oh well.

You know, while I'm at it, here's an image which has been lurking on my hard drive for quite some time, unused:
