I had a go at cooking Easter Dinner yesterday and made a pretty sad fist of it - the lamb was blah and the potatoes were too oily. However, I did get the wine right - a very nice Fleurie.

Given that I'd rather drink good wine than eat bad food, I'm feeling a bit on the fuzzy side this morning. My apologies if I seem more stupid or incoherent than usual.

UPDATE: I should also note that I finally moved the Joe Pye around in the garden on Saturday, shifting a total of a half dozen plants, each of which had a root ball that must have weighed 70 pounds. My knees and back are not what they used to be.

Having at least 10 years on you Robert, I am absolutely crying a river here...

Shoulda gone with Cheetos for dinner.

Yeah, Cheetos never let you down. And even better - no squawking from the kids.

The worst part about the dinner was that we had a good friend over and I am still beet-red with embarrassment over having served her such a crappy meal.

Babs - I hear ya. May be time to start investing in some Ben-Gay, too. My knees are corkscrewing something fierce.

Ah Geeze... I feel so sorry... Your poor knees...
Actually, I just hired a friend of mine (an arborist) to do a total blitz on the yard while hubby is in Taiwan... Sheeesh, don't tell anyone.
Gotta love that tax return...
