It is Wednesday night and I have to admit, not the kind of evening that we would advertise as Paradise.  We have had 2 weeks of rain and a forecast of 2 more weeks to follow.  Not particularly cold, but the reason why people here in Paradise head to Arizona or Mexico.

Pat and I are both recovering from colds so reluctant to head off into the outdoors.  This is normally the night that we join our Miata friends at the local A&W for hamburgers and root beer, but we cancelled out.

We are watching the final game of the world series.  Through the series, Pat has chosen to cheer for the Indians and I thought I would cheer for the Cubs.  As a true fan of the Jays I should be supporting the American League champs, and I did enjoy the movie Major League so should be cheering on these chumps, but lets face it.. the Cubs are 104 years from their last championship.

So we had a reason to  stay home, enjoy a meal inside a warm house, and cheer for our teams.

I prepared Chicken Cordon Bleu (chicken stuffed with Swiss cheese and ham) breaded and baked in the oven, with small potatoes and veggies and salad on the side.

During the preparation, Pat was working on the computer (for one of her many responsibilities) watching the game in the den as I watched my Cubs start to move ahead.

We had a great meal (where I required that we shut off the TV) and rejoined to see an exciting game.

As I write this, Pat is policing the area and we are enjoying a great world series final game.  Two teams that deserve a victory…
