It did snow a bit but it’s been melting off the hard surfaces pretty quickly.  The forecast mentioned lows in the teens for tonight but I think they are backing off that now.  Definitely a hard freeze, though.  Some of the local big parking lot stores had plants set out already, I hope they can get them indoors.I made another pineapple upside down cake late last night.  The pineapple bits were described on the can as tidbits so you know I had to include it in this post.Yesterday was still warm enough to tend the grill in shirtsleeves.  I got a pretty good scald on the burgers.  They say it won’t get back to at least 60 until next Saturday.I set the machine to the dough cycle and started it up, it beeped done but when I went to empty the dough it was half undone – a small ball of finished looking dough along side of a mess of flour.  It looked as if one of the two kneading arms within the machine wasn’t working.  I mushed the dough ball around and restarted it and it seemed to be working fine, the loose flour incorporated itself into the dough ball and everything turned out well.  I hope it was just a mystery hiccup that remains a mystery.Tuna salad with hardboiled eggs.  It also has sweet pickle relish, mayo, chopped celery and a bit of minced onion.  I like green bell peppers in there, too, but didn’t have any.This is a no-fuss dinner.  It’s a beer-butt roasted chicken with nothing more than granulated garlic dusted all over it, along side a baked potato, and steamed broccoli.  Mrs J and I have an accommodation in re dark meat and white meat.  She will not eat the breast so it’s mine by default.Mmm… sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit with strawberry jam.  I made a minor change to the Big Daddy Biscuit recipe:  I added a half teaspoon of baking soda to go with the tablespoon of baking powder.  A TV chef making biscuits made a point of doing so with his recipe and they did puff up very well for me today.
