"Come home and read you tickety-tock"

Today I was the Enjoli Woman. I brought home the bacon (well, pork chops) AND fried them up in a pan, and made baby potatoes, country gravy (in the same pan as the pork chops) AND the kale with garlic and bacon recipe I rocked the socks off of Thanksgiving dinner with last year (just how poorly constructed is that sentence, anyway?) (though there was no kale, there were only "greens" of a variety I did not recognize, so I used spinach), and I think I did it all within half an hour of getting into the flat. I actually wanted to make the chicken, but realized as I was heading out the door that I'd be cooking until 9 PM if I did so ... no go.

Comments on today: tube was crap both ways (Victoria line closed down when I left this AM so had to pick up the Northern at Stockwell, only every train for ten minutes was too full to get on; was late to work; home, the District Line train I was on 1) insisted on sitting on the track and doing nothing "to improve spacing," like I cared and 2) was full of some kind of fumes that started getting me nauseous, a feeling made worse by ... sitting on the tracks. And the Victoria line train on the way back sat around, too. Time home: one hour ten minutes, with ten minute Tesco stop to buy greens and pork). The Red Bull I had at 2 PM probably really helped me have a very productive day at work, but (item three in "today") I didn't have it soon enough to keep me from getting my, "I'm Falling Asleep But I'm Trying to Listen to You Speaking" moment. I can't wait until I live near enough to work that most of the crappy part of today will go away forever.

Hope it gets better! I'm going to put a friends locked post on my LJ with contact details on. I've been meaning to do so for awhile. Be nice to meet you tommorow!

This is how I imagine pubs in your neck of the woods.

Miss you!

The stuff that's sold as 'greens' or 'spring greens' can be treated just like kale or cabbage - shred it and cook it in a bit of water and butter, or stirfry it with garlic and chilli. Yum.

I can see you're getting right in there with the London spirit!
