Tonight's first was a chuck roast in the crock pot with carrots, celery tops, onion, a sprig of fresh rosemary, and red wine. Yeah, yeah, with everything else in my well thumbed mental cookbook, I've never had much success with pot roast. Tonight's was really...really good. Mushroom gravy over biscuits. I may have to do this again.

Tights tonight. I still haven't looked at the replacement dye together with the sample fabric, but I've invested just about as much into the project as I'm willing to so I'm shooting for "acceptable" rather than "perfect." I'm comparing cotton-lycra to satin anyway, so they'll never match exactly. Too many variations based on which direction the light's coming from.

EDIT: The color is perfect, better than any of the tests. Some light striations, but shouldn't be enough to cause anybody any heartburn.

Michelle met with a pain psychologist today, a first step required by the insurance company to determine her elegibility and fitness for brain surgery. The procedure they're looking at is a series of subdermal implants that will electrically stimulate the affected nerves and hopefully let her live, if not completely pain free then in less pain and more able to function. No word yet on when that will be. The wheels turn slow.

I have a roast in the crock pot for tonight, though I cheated and used Allegro marinade and threw in potatoes and carrots. Not much as good as a tasty roast on a cold night. Yummm. Plus I need to focus on things other than cooking tonight. With a crock pot liner there won't even be dishes to wash by hand (though there is a mountain of those already).

Fingers crossed that Michelle can find some relief somewhere, somehow, and in the not too distant future. I know it will make all of your lives much easier.
