This week has been a little mixed as far as accomplishments go. Here's an example:
Positive: I bought everything I needed to make the rice/bean/corn/peppers/etc salad for lunches for the week on Sunday.
Negative: Okay, I didn't quite buy everything I needed. Why don't I have a lime tree yet? I never remember to buy lime juice.
Positive: I was able to cook at 11pm while watering the lawn, doing laundry, feeding the cats, feeding the coral, feeding the dog, and watching the latest episode of "Lie To Me". That's multitasking.
Negative: Forgot I had rice coming to a boil on the stove until I smelled it.
Positive: Didn't burn down the house, and I still had just enough rice for a second try.
Negative: Probably should replace my pot. Realized at about this point that I didn't have the lime juice. Too lazy to find a store open at 11pm and go buy some.
Positive: Had orange extract and lemon zest in the cupboard. That's close, right?
Negative: No, it's not really close.
Positive: Still edible. Probably because of the jalapeno drowning out all other flavors.
So, yeah, that's the way this week has gone...
