English Muffins

Rather than ramble on again about what a lousy day I had, I’d like to share with you the supreme wonder that is the English muffin. The English muffin can complete any meal. It is a perfect substitute for everything from hamburger rolls to croutons. With a healthy supply of English muffins in my refrigerator, I truly feel like I can accomplish anything. So, let us have three cheers for the English muffin and all its nooks and crannies.

Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray!

Seriously, what made my evening was the realization that I could toast an English muffin and then tear it up and use it as a crouton-replacement in my Caesar salad. It was just absolutely awesome. I can’t even explain it to you. I had another not-quite good day and the wonders of the English muffin just turned it all around.

After dinner we were looking for something to watch and I happened upon Ali on HBO, about forty-five minutes in. I decided to watch that and Stef wandered in and out. It was a good flick but it was terribly self-indulgent in parts. You could have shaved a good twenty minutes to a half-hour off that thing and it wouldn’t have suffered for it.

The movie just finished up actually and just before I came on to type this I checked the comments for yesterday’s entry and noticed that Jimmy remarked on the disappearance of the “Man of the Week” feature we used to have here at the Bastad. I removed both the Male and Female Eye Candy features at the beginning of the year but I’d like to ask you, my intrepid readers, whether you think that was a good idea. Do you think I should have gotten rid of the Eye Candy section? Should it be brought back? Did it used to make your day just like English muffins have made mine?
