still sick. Sick enough that I kept myself home from work today in hopes of shortening the length of this thing. I laid around on the sofa with my cat and watched Pawn Stars. True confession. It’s kind of interesting the stuff that comes into that store. I think I got an enduring love of history from my dad and I like to see the odds and ends that people bring in thinking they are going to sell it to the guys at top retail dollar. I can’t imagine they are all that clueless. Z called after I had started dinner and heroically offered to bring home takeout. I was in the throes of roasting butternut squash so he brought me two things-crab cheese wontons and a pecan pie. Hurrah for that! I made a fall risotto for dinner (meat free Monday on Thursday). It was filled with sauteed mushrooms and topped with roasted butternut squash. A healthy sprinkle & swirl of Parmesan cheese.
