I have been emotionally busy recently. I have been very uninspired in the kitchen because of it. I hope for some change soon. I forced out some food today. It came out very good and is an old classic of mine. Spanish rice.
I changed it a bit. When I went to get out the jalapeno peppers, they had rotted due to lack of culinary inspiration. I guess it was my karmic punishment for the neglect in my favorite room in the house. As a substitute for the jalapeno, I used chipolte peppers and it was amazing. I may re-work the recipe a bit to include the great smokey pepper. We shall see.
This will be another long weekend at the jobby job. The Spanish rice will help me get through the night. I am hoping to get outside some this week if it is nice. I think it might help my recently sour demeanor.
Since my birthday, I had a few other cards trickle in which has made me feel very nice. I also got a nice phone call from my dad, my mum, and my brother. It was a nice day, albeit slightly lonely.
