Today was group at the VA. I spent my time at Travelers afterwards consolidating some of the notes I've been making toward the Irish healing deities presentation, but when I got on the road, it was still raining and traffic was slow and pretty thick. It wasn't as bad as it could have been, but it was stressful.

When I got home I tossed some eggplant in the crockpot mostly following a recipe I got from an Indian crockpot cookbook. It turned out pretty well. I will probably do it again, and I still have another eggplant left. They had a really good deal on them at Freddies yesterday and they were nice ones, not all bruised and nasty and going off, as one might sometimes find when a thing is on a sale like that.

Having had a really tasty galette when I was in Brittany visiting [livejournal.com profile] eydimork, I had been looking around for a recipe for them off and on since I got home. All the recipes I'd been turning up included eggs, which they traditionally do not. Tonight I found a no-egg recipe and will probably try making some of the batter soon, as I have buckwheat flour already. I'm thinking I will need a nonstick crepe pan to do them properly without tearing them apart. I also found a couple of recipes for a mushrooms and cream filling, which was what I had there as well. I'm looking forward to trying them out.

I saw several recipes for a sweet apple filling that I think I might want to try with pears instead, considering that apples don't agree with me. I suspect they will be very tasty.

Tomorrow, Dom comes in from NYC. Sunday, my garage gets filled with stuff. Monday, Brianna gets here. Sometime during all that, I have to transfer my notes to a doc file and rough out an outline for my PCon presentation.
