What the world needs is more three-day weekends

In the morning I pried myself out of my living room (it's COLD out there!) and went shopping. I had only intended to pick up groceries and some thread, but they were having a sale on turtlenecks, so I bought some ensemble pieces. (Layers are so important in winter.)

After I got back, I set to work on wednesday_10_00's kitty potholders. Man, quilt batting (it is called batting, isn't it?) is weird stuff. It's like trying to sew cotton candy. I managed to get one of the pair nearly finished, but I have to sew the trim on by hand, and that'll take a while.

For supper, I noticed that my poor deep fryer was looking all lonely and unused. So, on the principle that potatoes and cheese taste good no matter what is done to them, I decided to attempt making potato croquets (croquettes?). I learned one important thing: while the first side is cooking, if the top gets a crack in it, for the love of all that's holy don't turn it over. The innards will come gushing out. In addition, I also made some breaded cheese & shiitake spring rolls.

The whole process took a very long time and used an ungodly number of dishes, but in the end it all came out tasting wonderful. Ah, potatoes. You make everything groovy.

...But I don't want to go back to work tomorrow. There's just so much to do. <sigh> Well, I'll have a three-day weekend starting next Sunday, so that's something to look forward to.
