Day 22: Bookstore = Empty Wallet

Blaugust Entry, Day 22

Today was the most money I spent on making spaghetti. That happens when you have to feed twenty people at a birthday party. I could have cooked the onions a tad bit more, and I may have to add a little more sauce tomorrow since it’s getting very oil-heavy with the butter and sausage juice. Still, it tastes delicious.

If you want the recipe for the best tasting tomato sauce I’ve ever tasted, look no further than my go-to food blog, Smitten Kitchen! And it’s three ingredients! I added sausage and onions, but the base is a very simple, savory sauce. You can drink it by itself, it’s so good. San Marzano tomatoes all the way!

Now I’m in a bit of a dilemma. I keep going to the bookstore, and I keep buying books. This time, I went to buy a gift, and came out with a copy of Press Start to Play. How could I resist?? My dilemma is that I by books faster than I finish them. Kinda like the backlog of games I have on Steam. I guess I have to discipline myself a little bit.

I have two novels partially read as of this moment: Have Space Suit-Will Travel, by Robert A. Heinlein, and The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. The latter is sitting in my car’s glove compartment, for those rare times I may need a book while waiting in the car. My mission is to finish reading the Heinlein book–which I’m a quarter through–before even touching Press Start to Play. 

Well, I may do a little reading and play some Longest Journey before retiring for the day. Tomorrow’s a long day.

Onward, to Day 23!
