Good thing: Dinner last night! I wound up making a chopped salad of tomatoes, cucumbers, brined goathorn peppers, green olives, red bell pepper, and red leaf lettuce. Using a trick I learned from Cook's Illustrated, I drained off some of the tomato water (cherry tomatoes are full of delicious juice, but left to its own devices the juice can just wind up pooled at the bottom of the salad bowl), reduced it on the stove, mixed it with a little wine vinegar, and used it as the base for a vinaigrette. Then I made a pasta sauce of garlic, artichokes, lemon, garlic, shredded chicken, goathorn peppers, garlic, parsley and olive oil, and served it over penne. It was all very good.

Bad thing: I woke up this morning with a sore throat and the telltale pressure of nasal congestion. Since I don't have allergies, that usually means a head cold is on its way. I am attempting to stave it off by using the neti pot and drinking a lot of OJ. Also, Sudafed. We'll see.
