Nachos, books and random thoughts........

Recently I wrote up a short review of the cookbook The Homesick Texan: Family Table. One of the many cool recipes in there had a page on Nachos. I love to eat nachos and we adapted a bit and had these ...look below.

Add sour cream, avocado and a quesadilla or two and you're in business!

You know we are going to have wine with dinner - nachos being no exception. As a matter of fact, nachos goes into the category of foods we like to have when we are doing a Friday evening chill-out night. That's when we pop in a movie, open some wine, eat a dinner like this on a tray and give the shibas a Kong.

The Kongs have a bit of peanut butter smeared inside and are frozen. That gives Kobe and Aja time to enjoy a treat while we begin our meal without the usual begging. It buys us maybe 5 minutes but I'll take it!

Last time we planned to have a chill-out dinner and watch Walking Dead we were deeply disappointed. Turned out we had seen the last episode from Netflicks and didn't realize it. Disk 5 arrived, we were expecting to see the season-ender but it was special features and interviews. Arrgghhhh! Now we have to wait for season 5 to come out on DVD.

Ok, enough whinging about my TV show............

I was fooling around on my other website, the bookish one Novel Meals, trying to change a few formatting issues, trying to pretty it up. Big mistake! I ended up with some of the widgets I like at the very bottom of the page and for the life of me I couldn't get them back where I wanted.

Wordpress has a help and support section but alas...they were down until 23 September. I just changed the theme and found one that works for me. I like Kobe's picture at the top so that was a requirement for me to find a design where I could insert his photo.

Recently I finished Daphne du Maurier's Jamaica Inn, a classic which I heard was being made into 3 part series. Not sure if that's true, just heard it through the grapevine. Starting on several books here - Broadchurch by Erin Kelley and In a Dry Season by Peter Robinson. Need my DCI Banks fix.

That's about it from Squirrel Head Manor. Hope life is treating you well wherever you are now.

Happy Autumnal Equinox!

It's good to get back to posting about food after a short break. Next year I will be getting a flu shot; this bout knocked me for a loop...
