Look out, people, I've got a meat mallet, and I know how to use it!
Dinner is in process (have I mentioned that we eat really late?), and it already smells good. I'm doing Chicken Marsala, carrots with maple syrup glaze, and rice.
Chicken Marsala is really easy. Just pound a couple of chicken breasts till they're fairly thin, dredge them in flour, and saute them on each side in a little butter. Then you fry some mushrooms (I'm just using canned tonight) in a little more butter, add a little marsala wine, and a couple of tablespoons of chicken broth concentrate...scrape up all the goodies in the pan and cook it down a bit, then pour it on top of the chicken breasts. Voilà! Chicken Marsala!
I'm getting hungry.
Did anyone watch "Fringe" on Fox last night? Wow, good stuff! We got a phone call while it was on, so missed a bit of it, but this looks like a good one, and I think we're hooked. We've read that it's reminiscent of "The X-Files," and it does have that sort of creepy vibe.
While "The X-Files" focused on the alien threat--the truth is out there...have you heard?--"Fringe" seems to be about shady dealings and strange government experiments going on right here.
The first 15 minutes had us saying, "WHOA!" and "Ewwww!" It was nicely creepy, with some kind of flesh-eating virus running rampant on a plane. As with all good weird shows, there seems to be much more to the story, and things are not always what they seem to be.
It's going to be on Monday nights, so looks like Monday night comedies on CBS might suffer...we shall see. It's been a while since we were excited about a new series, but this one looks pretty good. It's from J.J. Abrams, the guy who does "Lost," although that's one that we don't watch.
Well, dog my cat. I just saw that it was 9 PM, and switched over to ABC to watch Charlie Gibson's interview with Gov. Palin, followed by an interview with Sen. Biden. Something else was on. I tried another channel, and it wasn't on there, either.
Ken said, "Umm...are you sure the interview isn't on Thursday?"
Right you are! And I knew that today is Wednesday! I TOTALLY knew that!
