... - A little less than a happy high — LiveJournal
Thought the first:
If there is anything that is more universally wrong (in all the right ways) than choucroute garnie, it is braised choucroute with a roast duck in place of All the PorkTM.

Thought the second:
I'm having a certain degree of difficulty wrapping my head around life after The Troubles. I can probably chalk part of that up to not having any sort of concrete confirmation yet, but there's part of me that's afraid that I won't be able to easily adjust to the sudden lack of a thing that was a defining characteristic in my life for a decade. I just don't know what it means. Today, I find myself wondering if I have the strength to look at this as an opportunity as opposed to just a time to mourn.

Thought the second point one:
I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.

Man, me too...
I really hope you take it as an opportunity. Please lemme know if there's anything I can do to help you in that respect.

That sounds so incredibly tasty, has you a recipe to share?

In entirely other news... what'd you think of the mystery beer? I've collected some interesting reviews so far.

The recipe is from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol 1.

If you'd like to stop by our house for a few minutes in the next day or so, we can probably spare a few bites. :)

The follow-up duck stock and duck risotto, on the other hand, are riffs on the standard recipes kicking around in my head.

I feel like I should be a little closer to it than I am, or at least have a more marketable skillset. And here's hoping that the past few days are not representative of where I take this. So far, I've just had a big case of the don't wanna's.

Yeah, it's totally Julia, and requires bacon! What's way cool is that our own sauerkraut went into it.

Sadly, I haven't had the chance for a taste. Perhaps with dinner tonight... More on that soon.

(that's about as profound as i get today. i'd love to say something useful about the other stuff, but the lil brain is fixated on duck. and worried that i might spell it wrong and embarrass myself.)

I think we all need a little more duck.

Tonight will be the third variation on the theme.

I'm sorry you're going through a rough spell. You're smart and creative and charming - I think you can definitely find some new opportunities. (Then there's always my option of running away to join the circus...)

Shucks... [kicks some dirt]

The crazy thing is that this is on the heel of good news, so I'm kind of at a loss. Circus might be just the thing. At the very least, I could do a "man eating chicken" bit if we ever decided on a fireball show.
