Happy Thoughts

Manic Monday

November 3, 2008

It really is a crazy day, isn’t it? The Mostest Importantest Election EVAR! and it’s a toss up at the moment. It’ll be discouraging to see how the losing party fights the decision, throws mud, how the media will eat it up like the ambulance chasers they are, how the people will fight with each other.

Is this what a modern day civil war looks like?

I don’t know. It’s going to be a disheartening few weeks either way as the worst of human nature shows it’s ugly little face.

But in other news… My salad this evening was Perfection! Romaine, orange, Fuji apple, green onions, avocado, candied pecans and blue cheese with a wonderful Pomegranate Vinaigrette. Crispy, sweet, tangy and tart. Marvelous.

And then there was the shepherd’s pie. Portabello mushrooms, fresh basil, onion, garlic, eggplant, ground lamb in a rich gravy under the cover of Yukon gold garlic mashed potatoes.

I am a diva. At least my family thinks so.

If only I could have had the crusty fresh bread I was craving. If only.

And then there’s the newest addition to our house. In honor of this election, we named her after the most important element of the last few months….

Zogby.

I’ll catch ya tomorrow.  Maybe I’ll live blog some of the coverage.  I’ve never live blogged before.   I know Vox will be.  I know he’ll be more interesting.  Maybe I’ll just kick it over there.

Happy Monday!
