dinner and a movie

Today, I felt pretty useless. I'm hoping for some decent sleep tonight. We went to the pool for the first time since they filled it (they filled it a couple of weeks ago, but we were away).

Anyhow, I was pretty freaking hungry, which usually results in us eating something less than healthy or something not prepared by us. Instead, tonight we made dinner. I've been passing time marking recipes in my Cooking Light cookbooks, so I thought we'd try some out. So, we fired up the grill (or Cardo did, rather) and we put dinner together. Grilled corn on the cob, baked triple-bean pot, herb-and-citrus turkey burgers. Both of the Cooking Light recipes were really easy, especially the beans, which took about three minutes to put together. Also, both were really good. And, we have leftovers (Pic barely ate her turkey, which is normal for her...not eating much at all).

So, Cardo had to go in to work tonight and I'm sitting here watching On a Clear Day You Can See Forever. It's almost over and then I'll do dishes and (please please please) rest.

(By the way, when I have plants, I talk to them also, but all they want to do is die. It's a little off-putting.)

I have a Cooking Light cookbook, too. It has never failed. The recipes in it are fantastic, or at least the ones that I have tried are.
