Well, the first meal. And by meal I mean not from a box, not from the freezer and not from drive-thru! But nothing to fancy. We had sauted pork chops with a rosemary sauce and fried potatoes. I couldn't find my boullion, so I used some beer for the base of the sauce. It worked. But there was a slight bitterness when the beer reduced down. While we were eating I realized I could have used a bottle of hard cider instead of beer and I suspect things would have been better.
Outside of that, we bought more stuff today. We have to stop! But we wanted to finish the bed room...at least as far as we can now. We're going brown/blue for the color of the bedroom! It looks good.
On the Fried Hard Drive front, the hard drive is dead. Done. Over. Finished. Kaput! I have to buy a new one and rebuild. There's a chance we might be able to save some things--keep your fingers cross...there is so much photography gone! Word to the wise...back up your data...somehow...I've not done that and I might be s-c-r-e-w-e-d!
