Halloween and Taco Salad

Halloween today, but unlike last year, there was no dressing up or Halloween parties this year.  There was work, and then after work, I headed home and started preparing dinner.  AJ and Denisse came over around 7 PM and I made a taco salad using one of strausmouse’s recipes.  I think it came out pretty good, even though I made one mistake.  (The recipe said to slice up a tomato.  Later it said to add the tomato to the food processor.  I didn’t read it carefully and added all the tomato, rather than 1/4 cup.  That’s okay, it still came out pretty good.)

Earlier in the day, I picked up 2 games for the Wii:  Monopoly and Tiger Woods 2009.  When Denisse and AJ were over this evening, we played Monopolyon the Wii.  It was fun, but it took a long time.  Ultimately, AJ was the winner.

I got the January issue of ASIMOV’S in the mail today.

Today’s reading: SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN.
