Research and learning on a variety of topics, from health to computers, parenting to cooking, brewing to politics.

Lunch was largely leftovers. On the plate is the chicken mushroom risotto my wife made Monday. In the cup is some chicken alphabet soup I made last night, as my wife, feeling ill, needed something easy on the stomach. The can of Pepsi was an unnecessary indulgence. I need to get back into brewing Ice tea to take to work.
Finally, in the plastic bag were a couple of Pluots. Pluots are one of my favorite summer fruits. They're a cross between a Plum and an Apricot, both of which I love, that results in a fruit with a smooth skin and a juicy texture. They have a higher sugar content than either of the parent fruits, which explains their sweet flavor.
