None too soon

We leave for Las Vegas, Chino, Long Beach, and finally Baja Mexico the day after tomorrow, and needless to say, this trip is long overdue. However, it is a rather nice break after finals. The one good thing about taking finals is that they signify the end, and that is a comforting thought.

And counting...

We've caught 4 mice so far.

2 on accident:
1 on a spider sticky trap, the other just laid down and died in the middle of the floor.

2 with enchilada-baited traps:
they just can't leave it alone.

Ah, to be engaged again, when you can stay up all night, you don't have to worry about what to cook for dinner, and you're cute and cuddley in public. I miss that.

Cookie exchanges are rather fun.

30 weeks is too soon for a baby to be born.

Finals can never come soon enough, yet there's never enough time to study for them.

Colds seem to last ages. I don't remember what it feels like not to be sick.

I don't care if the mice suffer, they deserve it for ruining my enchiladas, not to mention my peace of mind.

House cleaning is for suckers.

Ultimate Comfort Food

Mary told me the recipe for this off-the-cuff classic, and it was fantastic.

1 can evaporated milk
2 egg yolks
elbow noodles
cheddar cheese
Worcestershire sauce (optional)
Tabasco sauce (optional)

While cooking the macaroni (enough for however many people you're serving) combine the evaporated milk and the egg yolks, add the two sauces to taste if you like, I forgot to and it was still delish. Just before the macaroni is done, drain it and add the milk/egg mixture. Cook until it is somewhat absorbed, and add cheese. I like a lot of cheese, and just used the remainder of the block in the fridge. Salt to taste.

These directions are pretty general and do involve some estimation, that's how I generally do things. It's pretty foolproof, and is creamy even when reheated.
