Doctor Eleven

Busy Saturday

Up early again, no matter how much I might want to sleep in, cats and dog refuse to allow it. Also, the mattress is getting to the point where my back won't LET me sleep as long as I'd like -- ah, the vague aches and pains and damn, my back hurts.

But bed stripped, laundry done, dog walked, shopping accomplished (getting home stuff for various projects), made turkey pot pie for dinner, and even took the time to watch the Kentucky Derby live. (Wow, California Chrome looked like he was walking it in -- like it wasn't even an effort!)

Our neighbor who makes us little pies every so often (he uses our citrus) got a new job working for a bakery (Capriotti's Sandwich Shop) and brought us two big bags of bagels. They look good, I've never tried this place. It looks like it gets pretty good reviews on Yelp (he said the bagels "just don't move" -- other breads are probably more popular).

ANYWAY... I put up some pizza dough earlier this week and tried one of them today; this time cooked it a little too long so it was a bit crispy, but I think I'm getting the flavor down -- GOOD! Since we have so much breadstuff, though, I checked some sites and froze the rest of the dough on the authority of the site where I got the recipe from.

Getting these was easier than usual:

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

I'll have to take some time and get the Tivo cleared off tomorrow.
