Fish-related disaster

Well, not really, but it's a fun title for a blog post. We were supposed to have fish for dinner tonight. The instructions said to baste it with butter and broil it. But the butter got so hot that it burned holes through the foil and filled the house with smoke after only 5 minutes of broiling. We decided that aluminum-flavored fish was not the ideal meal, so we went out for burritos instead.

And that's really the most exciting thing that happened all weekend. We gamed a bit, I got a lot of work done on my necklace from Beki Haley's class at the bead retreat, and the corgis were cute as ever. Also, I finished reading the last book in a trilogy I've really been enjoying. Good times, just not much to blog about.


  1. Burritos DO sound better than aluminum-flavored fish ;-) I can say that having created the same metal-tasting dish myself on several occasions. What trilogy were you reading?

  2. Glad to know that Chris and I aren't the only ones to have that accident!

    I was reading The Engineer Trilogy by KJ Parker. You can read my review of the first book here:
