Sometimes, you just fail

September 10, 2011

And that’s exactly what I did tonight.

In theory, it SHOULD have been a good dinner. Turkey meatballs, vegetable stirfry, homemade Szechuan sauce. Rice.

It sucked. We went and got pizza.

I think, truth be told, the veggies would’ve been good. I think it was the meatballs that did me in, and I think that was because of the Chinese five-spice powder, which tasted like it was about four-fifth anise.

You can’t win ’em all.

I did, however, redeem myself with a damn fine BLT this afternoon. So the day was not lost. And I went to the farmers’ market and got peaches and fresh corn and all sorts of other good stuff.

And we have a new family member — Star the cat, who has spent the majority of the afternoon and the evening hiding in the interior of the love seat.

And I’m tired and I’m going to bed.
