This past weekend was spent chasing down switches, temporary lights, and figuring what in holy moses was on each 15-A circuit. It was great. I only was shocked twice. Personally, I feel getting a bit of the old 120 volt is good for the system. Keeps that biological electricity on its toes. I also got to play with my new Gardner bender wire strippers. I still haven't fixed my tool belt since my brother used it over Christmas. It pulls my pants down and somebody tried to throw pennies down my crack while I was hooking up some switches.
Such a busy weekend also means we ate badly. Like turkey burgers, western family crinkle fries, doritos, and Seamart ass-doughnuts level of bad. Since we ate exclusively at the mart by the sea, we visited their 3 day meat sale! Yes, a couple of times a year meat goes on sale here. It is very boring meat. Pork chops, some sort of beef roast, greasy chicken and bacon were all on sale. I wasn't allowed to buy any meat (besides bacon) because we have a freezer overflowing with uneaten meat. Sigh, I didn't want any meat anyway (kicks puppy).
I have such plans of cooking/baking such glorious food. Plans that get smeared into the asphalt of my life. My one flaw (yes, I only have one) is that I can't drag myself out of bed early enough to get to work at a reasonable hour which means getting home super, duper late. By the time I get home tDF is all, "ALSDKFJAWEIUR FEED ME I HUNG DRYWALL AND STUFF ALL DAY." Then I'm like, "OKOKOKOKOKOK I'LL FIGURE OUT WHAT I CAN MAKE FROM WHAT WE HAVE IN 23 MINUTES." In short, I'm blocked by my laziness.
I did manage to make toasted pecan butter cookies last week. First cookies in at least 2 months. I also have every intention of iron cupcaking this month, but Passion? I need a cupcake about passion? I wonder what Fabio would look like in cupcake form? I think it would be buttery and sort of unappetizing. Things that inspire passion in me (food realm) include salt, salty smoked meat, bitter dark chocolate, whiskey, cheese, and bread. A cupcake I would actually like to eat would not be a very pretty or sweet one.
