Me: (putting in my contacts) Oops, one is backwards, can I use that contact solution?
Dr.: Wait, why don't you let me check it. Maybe, it's not backwards
Me: (I have been wearing contacts since 7th grade, I think I know when one is backwards) No, that's ok I know it's backwards, and I can fix it.
Dr.: No, no really let me check it.
She proceeded to check my eye, and simply say, "Yea, you are right. It's backwards." Then she handed me the solution.
BAM $30 in her pocket.
Alright, enough with the anger. Now onto food. This is what I have been cooking lately... vegetable marinara sauce, bread, pie, and chicken.
I took eggplant, celery, carrots, red peppers, garlic, and a bunch of herbs cooked them in a bit of water for a hour, added two cans of no salt added diced tomatoes, stuck my immersion blender in there and voila! Delicious red sauce.
I then took some chicken browned it in butter, thats right, BUTTER. Removed it sautéed an onion and a yellow bell pepper, poured a bit of the marinara sauce in, put the chicken back in, stuck a lid on it, and let the chicken cook all the way thru.
Chocolate banana cream pie. Pudding- chocolate and vanilla, chocolate crust, bananas, and whipping cream. I could live on this pie.
Breakfast bread. Easy bread made with flour, buttermilk, baking powder, currents, and orange zest. Perfect toasted with a bit of jam. Now, because this bread is gone, I have a whole wheat banana/honey bread in the oven now. Smells wonderful!
Seriously, the sooner some of you bay area people become my friend, the sooner you will all benefit from my joblessness. OR whoever hires me will have all this homemade goodness to look forward to in the office every week.
