The random number generator picked this one. This salad was really tasty. The dressing was nice, but not overpowering. It was the goat cheese though that made it a great dish. The cheese was cut in rounds then dredged in panko bread crumbs and fried. The breadcrumbs became crisp and delicious, while the cheese was soft, warm, and perfect! Fantastic tip from The Book, that I have to share: the best way to cut a log of goat cheese into rounds is with dental floss. It is so much better than using a knife - you get a clean, beautiful cut, and the cheese doesn't crumble at all! That tip alone pushed this recipe into the A range! Seriously though, I would definitely make this salad again -- very tasty!

Alex came over for dinner tonight, which was a nice was to spend the late evening. Aside from grocery shopping this morning, I stayed in all day and worked. It was really nice. In general I prefer to work at the office during the day rather than at home. Sometimes on the weekends though, staying home and working at my desk here seems really appealing. Reading papers in bed is also a nice benefit of working at home! Supposedly there is going to be some huge snowstorm here tonight, so it sounds like I may be spending some time at home tomorrow too!
