we're finally making headway with the oven situation, but still don't have the new one. i'll eventually write up the entire saga in hopes that our experience is beneficial to you should you [heaven forbid] have a similar to-do. so the menu is still created around stovetop cooking recipes.
it's a pretty easy week since we ate out tonight, & the weekend is taken care of. we're hosting the annual graduate student chili cook-off this friday for the second year, & we're really looking forward to it! we provide cornbread [two regular batches & one batch doctored with chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce], sweet tea, wassail, & coffee. the students bring their best chili recipes that are judged by a panel of faculty, & the faculty bring the hors d'oeuvres & other accompaniments. it's a blast!
