12 September 2007

So we're sitting at the dinner table, eating our not-great stir fry dinner. Emily picked out the mushrooms, then the yellow peppers, then just picked at it. It wasn't nearly as good as the other stir-fry meals I've made. I told her I wouldn't make another till next week. She said she didn't want any more stir-fries at all. I told her there's other ways to prepare tofu and she was glad to hear that. I asked her if she wanted to know, as I've been reading a tofu cookbook. She said no. That conversation came to an abrupt end.

I told Emily that I was going to the doctor's in the morning. There's no school (Jewish holiday), so she'll be home. All she wanted to know was what time I was leaving. I said, "don't you want to know why I'm seeing a doctor?" She said, "Mom, I read your blog. I know everything about you." Was that funny, or not??

BTW, my throat's not been bothering me at all since I went to the doctor's. I'll still go for the sonogram, but I'm not worried anymore.

I've been cooking since I got home from work. I volunteered to bring dessert to my relatives' house tomorrow. I'd seen a recipe in the new Cook's Illustrated magazine for Cheesecake Brownies, and that's what I made. It was my first time making brownies from scratch, and was much easier than I thought. I won't cut them into squares till tomorrow, so I won't know how they look inside till then. While the brownies were baking, I made up the batter for chocolate chip cookies. Emily's putting the batches of cookies in the oven now.

I'll write again tomorrow after my appointment...

I just found a wok-cookbook at a garage sale this weekend. If I find any good stir-fry recipes I'll pass them along.

I hope your dr. appointment goes well today. Take care of you -
