Newest BPAL purchase: Fiery Wall of Protection. Because, YES. (Well, technically TAL, not BPAL.)
Mom here. Going to see if the nearby barbecue place is open.
Dinner: very pale. Risotto with leftover turkey bits stirred in, white asparagus*, bread, French butter. And red wine. Pale but tasty. (The turkey, purchased from the TCU dining services, was roasted with a large branch of rosemary laid on it, so the entire thing is faintly rosemary-infused.)
* Purchased a couple of days ago: I didn't plan an all-white meal; I just had no other veg ready for cooking.
