Internet Explorer…

As far as I can tell, the problem I mention before occurs only with IE7 on a pc. It seems earlier iterations of IE work fine and of course REAL BROWSERS on all platformshave no problems at all.
Sorry, but IE is such a crappy browser compared to, oh, I don’t know, a rock shoved through your screen, that I’m surprised they keep coming out with new versions.
Anyway, since I’m using Firefox on a mac both at home and work, I’m having a hard time seeing the issue. Any feedback would be appreciated.

too much?

To be filed under “too much effort”?
I’m in a pasta mood lately, specifically, in a roll my own sort of mood. Also, in a pumpkin, apple, kale, sage kind of mood.
I mixed one pound of flour with one can of pumpkin, let the stand mixer knead this for me and I let it rest. Well, obviously, the ratio was way off and it needed way more flour, the dough was too wet. The problem is that of you knead in any more flour you have to let it rest again. So I added the flour and let it rest.
It was still wet when I went to roll it, but not terribly so. At this stage, if the dough is not too wet, you can dust it liberally with flour before each rolling.
I made a sauce of kale, apples, garlic, sage and fennel seed and the whole meal would have been perfect had I not overcooked the pasta by just a minute. Dang.
David is telling me lately that I’ve been working too hard on dinners, but it’s the best I have to give so I keep doing it.
There’s still half the dough left and I am thinking gorgonzola, pear, hazelnut sauce…


You know you’re tired when the lady on the radio says, “The weather is supported by Seabiz…” and you spend a minutes trying to figure out how you support the weather. Do you go out and congratulate the sun? Buy groceries for the clouds? Hold an intervention for the jet stream?
Then you figure it out and you’d laugh but your face is too tired.
