So far so good, right? OB brought the bbq over, and things were on schedule. I got to work, churned through some stuff, went to a meeting, then dragged Jeff out to lunch so I could get the propane tank filled on the way back.

We ate at Sofrito Rico which has rice/beans to die for. Then we stopped by U-haul. The U-haul that I called earlier and confirmed had propane.

They just ran out. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

And Jeff is such a genuinely sweet good-hearted good-friend, there wasn't even a hint of mockery on his face, when he said, "Oh no!!" But of course, last minute plans can have last minute catastrophes, right? We got back in the car where I tried to figure out when else in this day I could squeeze out some time (I have meetings all afternoon) to run and get propane. But Jeff? MY HERO! He remembered that there was a Hertz rental place just up the street and he thought there was a chance I could get propane there--and he was right!

We stopped and filled the tank amidst my bouncing and tackling Jeff with hugs. Seriously, what a relief, it was going to be a nightmare to have to deal with it after work along with swimming and running to the grocery store before getting home to setup the grill.

So the whole lunch adventure took longer than expected, but at least there's a very happy ending.

Also--I got my bread machine! I can't wait to use it! But, um, perhaps tonight is not the night to attempt it.

I'm glad to hear that things worked out with the propane tank after all. :) Yayyy for good and helpful friends. :)

I'm envious of your new bread machine. I have thought of buying one, but worry that I'd never use it. I'm going to have to live vicariously through you and see how your upcoming "bread adventures" go. :) :) :) :)

I only dared to get it because it was like $60 and about 50% on sale with great reviews.

I really hope I use this thing regularly! And especially with the advent of bread mixes, it seems so do-able!

I'm really excited for you with the bread maker. It's something I wish I had, but at the same time, I wonder if I'd make a huge mess. lol :D

So true with the bread mixes though. I bet that does make it easier to create delicious breads without too much muss and fuss. I can't wait to hear how it goes once you start using it. :D

For $69 I figured it was worth the risk... and I will definitely post about my successes and failures!

Weren't you looking for this in black?

Dunno if you still are, or if this is the right one, but it's worth posting :)

YES. I am. Though I'm looking for it in black. I'm tempted to buy this one and paint it, cause they're such a pain to find.

Thanks, Jody!
