    What are you reading?

    Finished up 2 or 3 books in the past week, currently reading True Compass. I've decided to try the 50 book challenge this year, so I'm going to be digging deep in my library. Keynes is definitely on deck, hopefully before CPA exam prep starts in earnest.

    What are you reading?

    Just finished Chuck Palahniuk's Tell All. Don't care what the reviews said, I really enjoyed it. Now that the semesters over, I'm going to finish up the last 20 or so pages of Atlas Shrugged and start on True Compass. I'm hoping to knock out at least 2-3 more books and a major library...

    Is homeownership a big PITA?

    Purchasing my home was one of the greatest decisions I've ever made. In my area, I pay about 40% for my mortgage payment what the house next door rents for. Yes, I have occasional unforeseen costs, maintenance issues, and the expenses of a renovation/restoration but it has been entirely worth...

    How many White Dress Shirts do you own

    I've probably got better than a dozen plain white (or white with texture). Maybe 2 or 3 MTM ones from a few years ago (subsequently taken in thanks to weight loss), half a dozen older white ones of cheap make that have been altered a few times, and maybe 6-8 that I've picked up recently, mostly...

    What are you drinking right now?

    Having finished off the last of the cask strength scotch before putting my first of five pies in te oven, I'm now enjoying a bit of New Holland Charkoota Rye on the back porch. Quite good, and not nearly as overpowering as Beer Advocate had suggested.

    This Food Preparation Vid from the 50s Is Fascinating

    That was fantastic. I made my wife come over and watch it, too. At first she thought I was crazy, but we were both mesmerized by the 5 minute mark.

    What are you drinking right now?

    Had an especially trying class this evening, so I came home with bourbon on my mind. Two moderate pours of Eagle Rare 10yr, neat. God I can't wait until this semester is over.

    What are you drinking right now?

    Trying my first pint of Three Floyds Behemoth. Very pleasant, much more drinkable than I was expecting. Made a major run on the beer aisle at the self-proclaimed largest independent grocery store in the US over the weekend, so I should have enough good bottles to keep me posting for a couple...

    Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW!

    A malfunctioning sensor on my alarm system caused a full-blown, sirens-screaming wake up call. At 5:15am. On a fuckin Sunday. Before I could re-arm it, the system started triggering in a rapid-fire session, leading to a 45 minute tech-support call. At 5:22am. Dammit.

    What did you eat last night for dinner?

    Last night we had the first of our garden tomatoes cut up and tossed with some truffled goat cheese and gnocchi, which was really great. Tonight we fired up the grill, mahi for her and Field Roast sausages for me, with sauteed chard from the garden, baked Japanese sweet potato, saffron rice...

    What did you eat last night for dinner?

    Been trying to cook at home more the past few weeks, which has lead to a lot of things prepared with whatever was found in a walk through our garden. Made a vegetarian "chicken" salad last week that we've been eating all weekend. Looking forward to this weekend, we're headed to Cincinnati for...

    What did you eat last night for dinner?

    Last night we went out for sushi. Had a yam roll (which is always delicious), some vegetable maki, a couple pieces of avocado nigiri and a slightly different presentation of egg (which I will definitely be getting again). Tonight I decided to try and make something out of whatever I could find...

    Unbelievable how huge everything in our garden has gotten so far this year! We've had fairly constant rain which, mixed with the tons of composted horse manure we added to the beds, has lead to incredibly huge plants that seem to be producing at a ridiculous rate. Our squash plants are...

    What did you eat last night for dinner?

    Been in the mood to cook a little more lately, so I made a dish of scallops in a vermouth cream sauce with softened onions and mushroom over the weekend (she was pleased) and last night I sautéed mushrooms and onions in butter, threw in blanched asparagus and gnocchi and finished with sherry for...

    What are you drinking right now?

    converting the girl from hating all beer to actually enjoying nice craft beers was a similar feeling. its great. My wife had never drank beer before moving here (she said it was too hot here not to), and I've gotten her to try and even like some better options. Ultimately, she prefers fruity...

    SF Cribs: The places behind the clothes

    Douglas, I love the new fixtures! I'm a big fan of keeping existing features whenever possible, but I think that the "new" ones will go really well with the retained architectural features. I look forward to seeing more photos as the renovation progresses.

    How much space do you have to prep food for cooking in your kitchen?

    Right now I have the biggest kitchen I've had access to since moving out of my parents house about ten years ago (~140 sq ft), but I have very little usable counter space, thanks to the 1950s "modernization" of what was likely an early 20th century butlers pantry (the larger kitchen...

    How long does it normally take you to make dinner?

    Lately, we've been taking advantage of the good weather by way of firing up the Weber whenever possible. With that in mind, I usually go from mise to table in about 45-60 minutes. If I'm making a really special meal inside (generally the only time I cook a real meal instead of my wife), I can...

    What are you drinking right now?

    I officially reached a milestone in my drinking career: I've made a gin martini so good that my wine-cooler swilling wife actually put aside her fruit flavored michelob ultra and asked for a second sip. That, I firmly believe, is reason to celebrate with, of course, a stiff drink.

    What are you drinking right now?

    Just had a Duvel, but it was a little warmer than I prefer, so I stuck it in the fridge for a bit to chill off. In the mean time, I've been gathering some supplies to put together a dirty martini to enjoy on the back porch. Running low on supplies, so it looks like a trip to the liquor store...
