#741

7:50 am, Thursday, December 14th, 2006

We had another booster draft on Saturday night, this time with me, Charlie, Nolan, Jeremy, and JC. We used Time Spiral packs and redrafted rares at the end (I got Pentarch Paladin, Ib Halfheart, and Stronghold Overseer). IIRC, Jeremy won, Charlie came in second, and I came in third. My deck was red/white with a neat little combo — it threw out tons of 1/1 goblins (via Empty the Warrens and Mogg War Marshal), which I attacked with every turn. Opponents were reluctant to stop them because Ib Halfheart turned the blocked ones into suicide bombers. An Ætherflame Wall enchanted with Fire Whip kept most threats at bay, and killed the smaller annoyances (like Jeremy’s Looter il-Kors).

After the draft, I came home and grilled some tri-tip steaks. They came out really well. Served ‘em with cheddar/bacon mashed potatoes and cottage cheese. Behold:

Steak, mashed potatoes, cottage cheese

And last night I made some chicken casserole — chopped breast meat, bowtie pasta, broccoli, and cream of chicken soup, topped with parmesan and shredded smoked cheddar. It was okay, but I really need to find a better “glue” for my casseroles. The cream-of soups are the right consistency, but they taste canned and are usually too salty. I think the next time I make a dish like this I’ll make my own sauce, like an alfredo, veloute, or something.

Nifty link of the day: America Before Pearl Harbor — A collection of color photos taken between 1937 and 1941. Neat stuff. Makes the era a lot more relatable.

    Monday’s are no longer going to work for me for gaming until at least the middle of March as my work schedule has been changed to that point. I don’t know what is going to happen with the Future game but the Modern game will be on hold until that.
