Awwwww!  Kent brought dinner and a bottle of rose home last night to celebrate my new job (I start Monday.  I've got my uniform and everything.  Also, I really, really like my new boss).  He was absolutely beaming with pride.  Then he asked out loud why he was so proud that he's picked up food on the way home.

I had to reframe it for him.  "Dude, you MADE all of this.  And got paid while doing it.  And then got a 20% discount.  I'd be telling random people on the street."

So we had garlic-herb roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, roasted Brussels sprouts, and strawberry cornbread (not something I would have thought of, but it was WONDERFUL this morning.  I pan fried it in margarine and this was one happy Southern gal).  For under $15. And we'll get 2 or more meals out of this.  And stock from the bones.

We're still keeping things super tight financially until I get my first paycheck from New Job, but this little treat was so wonderful.  He also got salad mix and strawberries from the employee free table, so food has been pretty good around here.

ANNNNND I got a call from Santa Pete.  Guess who is going to a 50th anniversary screening of Yellow Submarine tomorrow?  I've never seen it on the big screen.  I remember channel 8 running it pretty regularly on Saturday mornings when I was a kid.  The Blue Meanies scared the hell out of me.  Hopefully, I'm enough of a grownup now that they won't.  We'll see.
