And just before reaching the warren, I was reminded of something our hosts noted on New Year's Eve - that there was a rosemary bush growing wild just down the road. As I passed by, I kept an eye out - and there it is! A large rosemary bush, growing purely for its own ends. And now mine as well, muahahahaaa! (I'm particularly pleased, as I routinely use rosemary in tomato-based sauces, pizzas, and so on - dried rosemary is fine, but fresh herbs are so much more fun to play with, both for flavor, and just the aromas during preparation, especially with cilantro and basil, for my money)
Dinner: cheapy pepperoni pizza, a few very thin slices of good chorizo, oregano, few small cloves of garlic, sichuan pepper, two sardines, meat thereof, and half a sliced tomato. Half of that tonight, half tomorrow or Sunday, along with a simple salad of lettuce, sweet peppers, and the other half of the tomato, and a little near-zero fat (who needs all that oil in a dressing? Keep it where it can do some good! You won't find me advocating a fat-free cheesecake. ^_^) thousand island.
