So, there are raging fires not far from here. That’s exciting, isn’t it?
Those Ziplock steaming bags can change your life. I highly recommend them, if you’re not the paranoid, microwaving-plastic-is deadly type. (Side note: if you are that type, please go to snopes.com to find out why you shouldn’t be.) Anyway, you just throw whatever vegetables or even meat in it and pop it in the microwave. Nothing takes more that 6 minutes I think, and that’s for meat. I cooked a medium artichoke in under 3 minutes. Revolutionary.
I saw Michael Clayton last night at my neighborhood movie theatre. I thought it was good, but not the masterpiece everyone was talking about. I needed to know more and for the stakes to be higher, somehow. I’d recommend seeing it, though.
