it’s chilly out today, complete with rain and wetness! it’s reason for celebration because i am so ready for autumnal weather. though i’m just about to leave to go scavenge for some food, so by the time i get back, i’ll probably be complaining about how cold and wet i am and how this weather sucks, but… that hasn’t happened yet!
the other day, my friends and i made a chicken pot pie because i told them that i’m awesome at chicken pot pie creation, and it looked like good pie weather – kind of brisk and cloudy outside, like the presence of a warm pie and its scent would make the day more satisfying. only just about right after we began preparations, the sun came out, and it got really hot outside, and i had to turn on the air conditioning because the oven was making things uncomfortably warm.
and during the pie extravaganza, a fire alarm sounded right when one of my pots was slightly burning (a little char on string beans and carrots really brings out the flavor, you know), so i had to turn off all of the burners and oven and dally on outside… i think it was just a drill, and there were police officers in the area that came up to anyone to ask “are you from this building? did everyone from your apartment get out safely? ok, cool,” and then walked away. um? isn’t it your job to go in and check who may or may not be burning inside and/or dying from smoke inhalation?
my brother says my presentation needs work, but slices of pie are so 1800 grandmas. chicken and vegetable mixture with crumbled pieces of crust is the pie of today, my friends. welcome to the new age.
