Some Elk Parmesan and No Water

Here is another 'delicious' recipe found in an old issue of Taste Of Home. I guess if you are a hunter you might hunt and eat elk but I am not and just don't know about this.
It really does not look all that appetizing to me.

We have no water today, water being something you don't really think much about until you go to wash your hands and oh, yeah, the water is turned off. Yes, we paid our bill, that is not why the water is turned off but rather because Keith is in the middle of a plumbing project, just what he wanted to do on his day off and the day before Thanksgiving.

We have had issues with water leaking into a bucket under our sink for a long long time now, water that we thought was coming from the dishwasher draining into the sink but getting under the sink because the caulking around the sink needs to be replaced. I haven't been using the dishwasher for a few months now in the hopes of solving the problem until the caulking can be replaced, which could be years since things take forever to get fixed around here.

It's not the dishwasher though. Keith heard water dripping and looked under the sink and apparently the hot water pipe has been leaking forever now so it needs to be replaced. Which is a big job since the pipe is old and inside the wall and I'm sure they don't make the same kind of flexible pipe that was under there anymore. He is currently at the hardware store trying to find a replacement. Which will probably take all day to find. That is usually how fixing things projects go around here.

Anyway, it's a little inconvenient to have the water turned off, especially when the dog has been licking your hands because you went to the store for 30 minutes and she thought you were never coming back and I'm going to lick lick lick you because I'm so happy to see you and then you realize you can't wash all that dog slobber off. So you get a wet wipe out of the butt wipe box in the bathroom and then wonder if you have any hand sanitizer in the house.

But at least if the plumbing gets fixed I can use the dishwasher again which will mean my dishes will get a lot cleaner than they do when I hand wash them.
