Unpack This

I cannot believe how long it's taking me to settle in! No one can come over until the book cases are put together.

In the mean time, I'm enjoying DLS once more and the satellite t.v. service. Have you seen Paula's Home Cooking? I like it. She's kind of hillbilly-style, but entertaining to me nevertheless. She's entertaining because she talks all Southern and says "spaturla" instead of spatula. Also, she explained that she came to like avocados later in life, after learning they were full of fat. It's just the kind of frank low brow talk I appreciate.

There is no way I'm going to be trying her recipes on my own. I want to live to be old, and she uses lots of fat and processed ingredients. For example, she has a recipe for green been casserole that calls for 1/3 stick butter, 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, 1 (2.8-ounce) can French-fried onion rings, and 1 cup grated Cheddar. Yikes! At least she prefers fresh green beans over frozen.

In between unpacking and assembling Ikea pieces, I'm doing fun stuff. I'm baking a bread that takes days --
24 hours for the sponge, 8 hours for the dough, 3 hours to proof the loaves, and baking time. I'll post a photo when it's done.

Oh yeah, then there's all the news that has gone down while I've been in transition. Rest in Peace Coretta Scott King. The Oscar nominations have gone out. And Bush & Co. still bites.

Pac'a is pretty bored with all of this and wants to know when we're going home.

Ed wants hot wings to be on the table on Super Bowl Sunday. Maybe Paula's Home Cooking has a recipe.

I can't think of anything clean that DLS can stand for.
