Frigid Friday

It was 4 degrees when I woke up on Friday. But, the weatherman swears this will be the last really cold day of winter! I can only hope he’s right!

I had to go to the Credit Union at lunch, so I left 15 minutes early (The credit Union at noon on a Friday? I’d be there for hours!) Luckily, I was just fourth in line so it wasn’t too long of a wait.

But I didn’t have time for a sit-down lunch, so I stopped at Wendy’s. I wanted to try their new specialty item, the Bacon and Blue Burger. They’ve been advertising it on TV and it sounded good. It’s a burger that includes crumbled Wisconsin blue cheese, three strips of applewood-smoked bacon, spring mix and blue-cheese a├»oli on their toasted brioche bun.

I ate it at my desk and it was excellent!

Sidebar: The only trouble with Wendy’s specialty sandwiches is that they are always just limited-time. So, they go away!

I had my one-on-one with the new VP in the afternoon. We had a rather frank conversation. At the end of it, he remarked that, while I might have been the last team member he talked to, it was certainly the most candid conversation he had had. I told him I was too damn old to lie.

Finally, I was headed home for the weekend!

It was still cold and windy. I got inside and stayed inside!

I was going to just make an egg sandwich for dinner, but then I saw the rest of those ham chunks. I figured I’d better use them or lose them so I made another omelet. This time I used a shallot instead of an onion. When the eggs set, I topped them with shredded cheddar cheese again, folded it over and plated it. This time, I remember to take a picture!

Sidebar: I should have wiped the edge of the plate, though. Dammit! I got to work on my food styling!

I watched the Red Wings play the Calgary Flames, hoping I could gloat over CC. But, alas, they beat us 5-2. So, she gets to gloat…

I went to bed. I hate to be gloated over…
