Tonight Mariko made a small pizza as part of our dinner (along with pasta and salad). She is perfecting her pizza dough, and this evening’s pizza was baked in a cast-iron pan in the oven. It turned out great! Our only complaint was that there wasn’t enough of it. 🍴
I can’t wait to try more of the pizza she will make… she’s still experimenting, which is good news for us because all the pizzas she has made have been delicious.
In other news, today my new Chromebook arrived and I have been getting acquainted with it. In fact, I am typing this post using it. The keyboard on this Acer Chromebook 11 is wonderful. Super comfy and the keys are spaced just right. The trackpad is fantastic as well, and I love the multi-touch gestures, especially the three-finger swipe to switch between browser tabs. It’s a really cool effect! Early this evening, I tried out the webcam on a Google Hangouts call with my brother and it worked well. I think this laptop is going to work out just fine!
Right now it’s pretty vanilla-looking, but I have ordered some stickers to put on it, so I’ll take some photos of it for a later post. Speaking of looks, the Acer is not the sleekest machine out there. In fact I am a little disappointed… I thought it would have nicer curves. It’s kind of ugly… it reminds me of the original Kindle. The plastic is really cheap too! But you know, for $165, it’s a pretty great machine. Fast, quiet (no fan, so it’s silent), and the battery lasts about 10 hours.
But I’ll post a more comprehensive review about it later, because it’s now getting very late here! Take care!
