I had quite THE day. I feel foolish complaining about the lax day I had at work yesterday. Today was like that of a 3-eyed monster that suddenly saw it’s reflection, painted the town red with obscenities, and agonized everyone with its’ inability to parallel park. Hmmm.. sounds like Hollywood on a Friday night. : P
All the work that didn’t come yesterday were figuratively thrown at me with buckets. Some of them were dirty buckets at that. Office politics – but I won’t venture there. It’s never pretty, is it? Work is work. Don’t let it ever get personal.
Every time I make a mess in the kitchen, I decide I should mess it up even more since it’s already dirty. : P I decided to make some granola balls. In lieu of my previous granola bar creations, I decided to try something different. I used the same ingredients as before but just rolled them in my hands and then rolled them in shredded coconut. They look amazing! I stuck them in the fridge for now. I’ll take a taste tomorrow. : )
The end? Nope. Not today! I still had to make dinner. 1.5 hours flew by! On the menu tonight? Shredded chicken and veggie fried rice for Paul and tofu and veggies with rice for me.
That red sauce? That is what the the islanders call Pika. I probably mentioned it a few times but it is amazing! I never had that kind of flavor profile hit my taste buds until I came to this little island. I think they’re pickled hot peppers but it starts off sweet then sky rockets to a different kind of spicy. So good!
