DINNER 274: Sunday, October 1, 2006

A wonderfully quiet evening tonight. Wendy & I had to go to her hospital, where she had to perform an emergency surgery, which I observed. We then took a walk around Winton Woods Park. The weather today was so perfect… The change of season from summer to fall is something that Ohio does well, just like the transition from spring to summer.

After dinner, we came home to watch the disappointing Bengals on our not-disappointing High Def television while we ate dinner. I had cheese French Bread pizza and some corn & tomato salad with cilantro dressing that I made (recipe is below the fold).
