Yankery [Mar. 26th, 2010|11:24 pm]
My head has been yanked and I don't feel like sitting at the computer for long. Also, all the substances I've been using to clean various bits of the house and its contents are doing bad things to the skin on my hands, and typing makes my knuckles hurt. I'm going to get rubber gloves.

Yesterday's storm, such as it was, has gone with the kinks in my neck. Today was so bright and mild that it's hard to believe that it is supposed to be cold and rainy again by early next week. March is being like April.

Dinner involved the consumption of the best avocado I've had in months. I put it in a sandwich. Because I forgot to buy fresh tomato, I made do with a few thin slices of cucumber, and it worked out so well that cucumber will henceforth be an addition to many of my sandwiches. I don't know why I never thought of it before.

Now I will slouch toward the television and recline for the remainder of the evening so my back can rest after its adjustment. There will probably be a cat curled next to me. I have not yet gotten her to curl up at my back and purr the way Sunni used to do. Too bad. Feline vibrators are excellent for relaxing stressed back muscles.

That sounds like a really nice evening. I wish I had a recliner and a cat, not necessarily in that order.

Cucumber sandwiches for tea tomorrow, too!

I've never had a cucumber sandwich, but it was the knowledge of their existence that led me to seize upon that vegetable as a substitute for the missing tomato. As a child I was fond of cucumbers, both fresh and pickled, and often ate them as snacks, but it never occurred to me to use them on sandwiches in their natural, un-pickled state.

For cucumber sandwiches, you take white bread (must be white bread), cut the crusts off, spread each slice with either mayonnaise or the best butter (must be the best, just like in the Mad Hatter's Tea Party), then layer with peeled and thinly sliced cucumber. Salt and pepper, then close sandwich and cut into triangles. Serve with tea at 4 pm.
