miscellaneous Monday notes

Tonight I defrosted a container of borscht, from the experiments of CSA box, week 3.  Nice flavor; I'm glad I wrote down at least a vague idea of the recipe.  Texture-wise, though, the pureed chickpeas mean it's more of a spiced red hummus than a borscht.  Not a problem with me; it will go well with bread.

After work and before borscht, I took Picasso to the vet for a check-up and blood tests.  He howled bloody murder all the way to the exam room, as usual.  Bloodwork came back perfect (nice vet ran it tonight, and called me with the results before I'd even made it back home).  We've decided to continue with the current diet, as it is as close as I can get to the near-nonexistent intersection of UT-supportive and hypoallergenic diets.

The weekend's thaw turned the remaining driveway snow into water-topped ice, and then temps dropped again.  My, what a shiny driveway I have. 

Tonight was Republican debate #18.  'Sakes.  I suppose it was on TV somewhere, but instead I re-watched the "New Approaches to Personalized Cancer Therapy" lecture on UCTV, part of UCSF's Mini Medical School for the Public.
Friending welcome, but lurking is fine too.

Constructive criticism is also welcome - whatever it is, trust me, I've heard worse.
