Ha! Pancakes for brekkie today, because yesterday when I was in the mood for them I made a double batch and cooked and froze the extra. I've been trying to use up stuff I have in house instead of shopping; I have a bunch of noodle and sauce packets from Trader Joes, so the last couple of days I've been making them up. It's really simple but effective, I have a freezer burned bag of chicken I'm trying to use up so I cook chicken in hot pepper oil, add shitake mushrooms, then some sesame oil and the boiled noodles, shredded green onions and lettuce, and stirfry it all. The stirfrying is inspired by katchoo_too's recent ventures. Boiled, the noodles are okay but a trifle watery, stirfrying everything melds it beautifully and it's very yummy.

I do need to make some bread so that I have non-sugary stuff for breakfast too, though.

It appears that the wireless card may also have been the cause of the computer freezing up constantly. It usually happened when I moved it, and it hasn't crashed once today despite repeatedly being shoved around. I'm still on the wire, but I'll try it again later and see if it was a temporary thing due to bad seating or if it's trashed. I hate being tied to the cord, wah.

A quiet night for Casa Avalon. It's been a long time since all three of us stayed in on a Friday night. A lot of Buffy watching with katchoo_too, since FX was running good eps and the musical was rerun on UPN. The cut version was just not as good, they cut one of my favorite songs and a lot of good lines. And I made myself venison tenderloin and mashed potatoes, mmm. Dark secret I must share: I actually *like* mashed potatoes made from flakes. It's not quite redskin potatoes mashed with garlic, but it's comfort food.
