St. Patrick's Day Comes Early

I made corned beef and cabbage tonight. No, it wasn't the typical boiled corned beef and cabbage. No, it was baked corned beef (actually it was more like a braise) and sauteed cabbage. You can find the recipe for both over at Simply Recipes. Instead of the suggested boiled new potatoes, we had steamed yellow potatoes with butter and fine herbs.

Oh, BABY!

No, really.

For those of you that don't already know from reading it in alycewilson's blog, we're HAVING A BABY!!

We were keeping it under our hats until she was able to have her first OB visit (everything's good so far) and to tell her family. But now we're being open about it.

We're lucky in that she'll deliver before the real heat of the summer sets in.

More to come.

A Return to Escoffier

Tonight, I made a return to Escoffier, but with a little bit of cheating. Last time, I worked from all basic ingredients. This time, I used a cut-up chicken and used pre-sliced carrots. Between these and not making the pommes de terre à la Lyonnaise, the cooking time was much shorter. I don't remember how long it took last time, but tonight it was an hour-and-a-half from the start of cooking to when we were done eating.

It's UP!


The site in question is the site for the new Philadephia Major League Soccer team, the Philadlephia Union. The site launched at 11:30 AM today at a press conference held at City Hall. The announcement was not only an announcement of the site, but the team name and team colors and logo, and was covered live by NBC-10 and ESPN.

We're very happy with the results. I'm very happy with the results. My part in the site development was a large part of the programming for the site. The site is here: www.philadelphiaunion.com.

Merry Christmas!

Yes, yes, I know I'm probably causing some people's computers to crash by posting twice in a 7-day period. Too bad.

Merry Christmas to all appropriate. Happy holidays to those otherwise.
