It's Friday and I could not be more relieved. Woke up to over 100 e-mails in my work inbox this morning. Turns out some genius sent an email in error to more than 7,500 people. That prompted many of them to hit "Reply to All" to say stop sending the e-mail (really...does that make any sense?). If it weren't 13 March, I would have thought it was April Fool's. But it is Friday the 13th. Nice. I do have to give a shout out to my brethren in the UK - many of them used the never-ending chain to see who had managed to get tickets to Michael Jackson's train wreck/money grab concerts in London later this summer. Very funny comments back and forth. But what the heck is the UK's obsession with Michael Jackson?! That can't be healthy.
So glad the weekend is just about here. It means I can get some focus off of work (it's just oppressive right now) and on to food. Not so much to eat but to create. It's an outlet. I've been obsessing all week about making a breakfast pizza. I've been scouring for recipes and have decided to blend the best of what I've found when I tackle this tomorrow morning. Whole wheat crust, salsa base, scrambled eggs, some kind of hot sausage, mozarella - you get the drift. We'll see how it turns out.
That breakfast pizza plan nearly got derailed when I happened upon the following on the Serious Eats food blog:
Everyone knows that the best part of the muffin is the top. You'll recall the "Seinfeld" episode that was all about that...as well as the issue of the leftovers, or the stumps. It was brilliant and so is this muffin tin. It's available online here but I am also going to see if I can't find it at one of our overpriced kitchen/foodie stores here in our Chicagoland suburb. Who needs to watch the Chicago River being turned green when you can try and track down this gem? I'm on it.
