A Lighter Shade Of Pale...


Last night, I may have served the most monochromatic dinner of all time; chicken breasts, white asparagus, and couscous. I didn't plan for a lack of color, and it tasted good, but it was just a bit...well...boring to look at. The saving grace was that I still had asparagus pee this morning - TWELVE HOURS LATER!!! That must be some kind of record!

Speaking of this morning...

We woke up to a monochromatic landscape.

Did I cause that?

If you need me, I'll just be sitting in our living room getting a color-fix by looking at our new paintings.

I just looked at the close-up. Looks pretty good, but you can avoid those black specks if you use white pepper. Then it'd even be more perfectly monochrome. :)

Whatever you do, do NOT pee between the hours of noon and 2pm.

Leesa - Wild parrots in Paris. Who knew???

Greg - I never think to use white pepper. I'll have to keep it in mind next time.
BTW...the seasoning on the chicken is Organic Poultry Rub that I brought back with me from the U.S. I bought it at Costco. I figured that it's organic, so it has to be good for us.
I'm thinking of taking up smoking organic cigarettes!

Fat Sal - I'm allowed to pee between noon and 2pm, but I have to sit down so I don't make any noise.
