It was a busy weekend of amazing things.
First, the Changeling game on Friday was very nearly exactly what I had planned – one teeny hiccup, but otherwise everything’s coming up Me-house.
I’m slowly solving my software issues, and will soon be able to reveal my fully armed and operational battle-sta… I mean, YouTube channel. Yeah.
The current issue is that, while I can record game footage with commentary, the sound from the game is not being picked up. Two audio tracks are being recorded, but one of them – the one without my dulcet tones – is a blank recording. Or at least, that’s what it looks like in the editing software.
As this weekend also marked Imbolc, one of the cross-quarter holidays – and the weather was appropriately, and unseasonably delightful – Melshine and I took a walk through our neighborhood, ending up down by Astoria Park on the East River. (Here’s the Hellgate Bridge, in front of the Triborough Bridge, in front of some more Queens, in front of Manhattan.)
I was so happy about the weather today. Imbolc is all about the reminder that winter may not be over, but the wheel turns, and spring is on the way – snow was still on the ground from our crazy past few weeks, but (at least for a little while) the chill was gone from the air, and I got a chance to (temporarily) downgrade to my lightweight coat for the day.
And the piece de resistance of this “all things” weekend was a recipe I had been looking forward to trying for a week or so: a balsamic pulled-pork over cheddar polenta with an avocado cream garnish. I know, right?! You can see the original recipe here, and my attempt here:
Ooh, food photography!
(I went a little heavier on the avocado and cheese than the recipe intended, but I feel my reasoning was sound: avocado and cheese are both amazing, and you should always have more of both when given the chance.)
This meal was a resounding success. Seriously, try this recipe.
But now it’s late. We’ve done all the things.
My weekend was great – and I hope yours was, too.
So what shall we do now?
I have a plan.
