Didn't Go To Athens

[ #24478 ]

Did nothing for most of the day, then went for a walk around downtown which evolved into a drive out into the country and an exploration of an abandoned quarry. It turned out not to be a quarry in the classical movie depiction sense of a big deep square hole dug into a deposit of rock, but was instead where people had dynamited their way into a natural granite dome. I did a tiny bit of scrambling on the exposed face, which was an unexpectedly large amount of fun.

For dinner, on a whim I picked up a pack of Morningstar veggie burger things. They taste like a flavorful version of what we were served in the school cafeteria, and perusal of the nutrition facts shows that they're actually good for you (high in fiber, potassium, and protein). Weird.

Speaking of dinner, the other day on a whim I took some cubed pork steak, coated them in storebought chicken breading, panfried them, and then covered them in peppered milk gravy. Amazingly tasty. Next time I'm going to soak them in buttermilk overnight first, then dip them in an egg wash before breading. And if that goes well, I'm gonna start work on my own coating mixture (I'm thinking 2 parts white flour and one part yellow corn meal (for texture), salt, pepper, MSG, and some small amount of herbs).
