We had the vegetables, and it's difficult for two people to get through the usual family-sized portions sold in grocery stores before they start to turn.
So this morning, a nice Poblano pepper, radish, cherry tomato, green onion, black olive, celery, carrot, bacon and Manchego cheese omelette is (rapidly becoming "was") on my plate. Pretty tasty, especially with a little Peri-Peri sauce and some raw radish on top.
Meanwhile in the outside world, politics veers between "risible" and "tragic." Got no fix for you there; chowderheads of every stripe will always be with us. They win elections right next to the clueful (and in slightly greater numbers); they blow stuff up and shoot when they shouldn't and drive like fools and in a world in which many people can pass an idle afternoon using up more horsepower than was readily available to Julius Caesar at the height of his power, ill-intentioned (or simply incautious) witlings are more dangerous than ever. The ideology (or lack thereof) that motivates 'em doesn't matter; take away whatever one they're using instead of decency and good sense and they will simply find another. Just keep your eyes open and do what you can to stop them or at least slow them down.
