Margherita P/i/z/z/a/ English Muffin

The only place nearby that makes a Margherita Pizza (although with just olive oil and sliced tomatoes, not the sauce) is a fairly long distance, and they don't open until 4pm, so I don't get there often. Plus, their pizzas are full-size and I have to bring some home.

So with some specials at the Giant yesterday, I developed Margherita English Muffin.

Take an English Muffin, separate it, and toast it to the darkness you like. While it's doing that, get two slices of plum tomato, two slices of fresh mozzarella, and wash basil leaves. When the English muffin halves are done toasting, put them on a pan, put the tomato slice on first, then the mozzarella, and bake for two or three minutes -- until the mozzarella is melting -- then take out and put the basil leaves on. Let sit for a minute or so and eat. I'm doing this in my toaster oven.

Blood and Food

Okay, the blood was mine and the food was the cats'. I hit the eight-week period so all my standing lab orders were taken today. Still one stick for me, but a lot more tubes for the phlebotomists. I then went to PetSmart and got a new big bag of dry food for the kitties. The last of the last bag is in the bottom of the plastic container (to keep it as fresh as possible) and they clearly don't like it. After the mailman comes (and I've seen him go back and forth twice now), I'll dump the bit that's left in the container, wash and dry the container, and reload it with food.

I also got gas, although it's not in the same direction, because I don't want to have to stop on the way to the doctor's appointment tomorrow and it's lower than I like.
