Well, this was an eventful morning. I was supposed to get my grocery delivery between eleven and three today. The delivery man showed up at twenty to eleven, while I was still in my nightgown cooking breakfast. In the process of setting down the bags he knocked over a can of bacon grease, which went all over the stovetop. In the process of trying to intercept the can I brushed my fingers against the skillet and burned them. I also got grease stains on my nightgown. The delivery man slunk out the door rather quickly. Luckily I know how to get grease stains out (rub with shampoo before laundering), or I'd be REALLY p****d.
However, while trying to get my teeth ungritted after that, I got a Facebook reply from Bobby Flay! Believe it or not, Ms. Black Thumb here gave him gardening advice. He mentioned on TV this weekend that deer keep eating his herb garden at his place in the Hamptons. I told him to interplant it with rosemary. Not only would he get another awesome culinary herb, but it's a deterrent to deer. They hate it and won't go near it (maybe they know how good they taste with it?). He thanked me for the suggestion. Whether or not he tries it, I'm thrilled he took the time to reply.
Now it's late (for me) here, and I'm watching Chopped with sports stars playing for charity. I just have on question:
Is a racecar driver really an athlete?
