notes from the office #13

    • * a little bird has been loose in the office all morning. i’ve been listening to her sing all day and it’s pleasant. now the building maintenance man is chasing her with a net and i’m rooting for the bird.
    • * working deeds again today. the day i got has had like 10 deeds where the home was destroyed in harvey and they’re selling to some company in california. this makes me afraid for the local market. california has no idea what property value is in texas, and i’m sure this some company that’s going to rebuild homes and resell them here for some stupid inflated value.
    • * the bird is still outrunning the maintenance man. it’s impossible for him to get into the file room with the net he’s got. the bird’s got his number. omg now the file clerk has a net and they’re both going after the bird. go, bird, go!
    • * they got the bird after like 30 minutes 😦
    • * i also viciously hate the landlords here that buy up all the cheaper homes. leave some for the rest of us, jfc
    • * first 200 foot radius report for the year.
    • * i can’t wait to finish my isla cowl. i started the decrease rows yesterday and oooomg i can’t wait to bind that off and wear it.
    • * jfc i hope the lunch i made for the next 2 weeks doesn’t suck. i packed hot sauce just in case.
    • * i had a bunch of odds and ends in the freezer and the last of a bag of egg noodles that needed to be used.
    • * 2 cups of great northern beans
    • * ~3/4 cup garbanzo beans
    • * ~2 cups of egg noodles (cooked)
    • * salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, worchestershire sauce, liquid smoke, garlic,
    • * 1 carrot, minced
    • * 2 stalks celery, minced
    • * 1 onion, minced
    • * 1 cup panko
    • * mashed beans and egg noodles together,
    • * saute carrot, celery and onion until onions are starting to caramelize. add
    • to bowl w/ bean+pasta mush.
    • * scoop into balls and rolled in the panko.
    • * baked until crispy

    * 2 cups beef stock
    * 8 oz white mushrooms
    * 1 yellow onion
    * 2 tbsp flour for slurry
    * i think i seasoned this with other stuff, but i can’t remember now for the life of me.
    * cook onion and mushroom until onions are caramelized and mushrooms have shrank. add beef stock and reduce by 1/2. thicken w/ slurry.

    * 1 box super greens rotini.
    * cook pasta & mix with beef gravy.

anyway, i portioned this out into 10 meals and froze it. the idea sounds decent enough, but now i’m kinda wondering if any of this was a good idea at all.

    * lunch was bland but bearable. i’m glad i brought the hot sauce. the idea of a bean meatball is nice though, i need to look up other recipes so maybe it won’t be so bland next time. they’re quite mushy.
    * i’m thinking about frogging the car blanket i’m making. idk, i don’t like the project any more and i messed up like 24 rows ago and now the eyelets are off. maybe i’ll make a big hooded scarf.
