A Price Must Be Paid

Temperatures dipped markedly over the weekend, so it was time to fire up the oven for comfort food.

Costco had a new bake-and-serve offering--beans with pork-rib meat--that looked close enough to the genuine New England article. I picked up a package of brussels sprouts to accompany the main dish; it took but a minute to coat them with olive oil and garlic salt. The beans, sprouts, and a loaf of garlic bread were thrown into the oven, and there was a warm feeling of satisfaction as the family dug into the high-fiber, vitamin-loaded, and cancer-fighting meal.

Today there's another feeling, but luckily I don't have appointments with a lot of people.
