Some things of little consequence

Was Googling around tonight for where to buy peanut butter M&Ms
in France (yeah, yeah), when I chanced upon the M&Ms Wikipedia
entry. Some fascinating stuff here.

Today was a good day at work, despite the lack of heat (organization
officially on holiday, so wore a sweatshirt, scarf, and gloves at my
desk) and closed cafe. Instead, drank awful coffee made via awful
machine at my desk.

Created minor international incident at the local grocery store, on
account of Frenchisms too tiresome to explain. Suffice it to say that
“customer service” is not at all in the French vocabulary. I enjoyed, I
must say, one of the few Brooklyn moments I have had since moving here.

Made a version of this easy and absolutely delicious dish
tonight, but with chicken breasts and rosemary instead of the oregano
(sorry, Dana!). Lovely flavors. Next time would roast some whole garlic
cloves in it as well.

    OK, you’re now bookmarked as a fav. I’ve never seen this header before.
    Maybe it’s just my settings but when I get the feed the only thing there
    is a list of what you’ve written- and now I’m wondering if I’ve even
    rec’d the full text.
