FOOD MADE: Lessons learned:

--Any recipe that involves stuffing things smaller than a turkey is probably more trouble than it's worth. That is to say, the taste payoff from stuffing forty pepperoncinis with a dill-salmon-cream cheese mixture is less than the cost of the effort put into stuffing all those little things, plus you bought fresh dill to make it and what do you do with the rest of it? The stuffed olives are still in super-secret marination lockdown; they'll have to be pretty g-d tasty to make them worth the hour put into them.

--Grandma's meatballs, on the other hand, are incredibly simple, and the payoff would be immense even if it took an hour to make them.

--There is no end to the number of times I will not learn the lesson about eyes being bigger than stomachs, or however that goes. I think that's a lesson about a lesson--a meta-lesson.

Game today. Patriots in a walk.
