After an incredibly long and stressful four day work week, this weekend is going pretty well.

Yesterday I met up for a long overdue multi-hour chat session with [personal profile] hamsterwoman dominated by conversations about Babylon 5, the Vorkosigan Saga, The Dresden Files, and the general state of urban fantasy. As always, meeting up with [personal profile] hamsterwoman was great and the weather was crystal clear, beautiful, and mild. Sorry to everyone who is not in California. Then I headed out to the East Bay to meet up with my siblings, only to have my brother have forgotten we were hanging out and therefore be in my area hanging out with friends instead of home. As a result, I had to wait around for a while for my sister to get off work from her job as a "Magic Princess" (which resulted in painting my nails blue for the first time in over a decade) and then we had Mexican food, while I convinced her friend to come play Warhammer 40K with my husband.

Today, my brother was supposed to make up forgetting our plans by helping me clean out the TV studio at work and figure out some of the finer points of Final Cut this morning, but of course he overslept and by the time I managed to wake him up by calling repeatedly, it was time to start my food plans for tonight. (I have decided it is high time I start trying all the great looking recipes that I pin on Pinterest. Especially since no one in my household can get enough of the Mexican Stuffed Shells I tried a few months back off of there.) As I type I am waiting for my rolls to rise.

Today's menu consists of Parmesan Breaded Chicken, Scalloped Sundried Tomato Pesto Potatoes ,
Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole
, Homemade Crescent Rolls, and the dark chocolate cake from The Weeknight Cook (Which is a great cookbook I want to give everyone now!)

I also am planning on making Chicken Tikka Masala and Homemade Naan for dinner tomorrow and Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Alfredo with the breaded chicken from today and steamed asparagus on Wednesday. (Our friend/roommate generally cooks Tuesdays and Thursdays.)

(Hurray for therapeutic stress cooking!)

What a wonderful form of self-administered therapy :D

How's the state of urban fantasy?
