I have officially resigned from my job. It feels really great to say that.
Thus far, I have rearranged all of the furniture in my apartment, stacked up all my mail into one big pile that I tell myself I will sort through and throw away, but is instead serving as a source of endless amusement for the cat, and gone on several walks.
I have also made a ton of awesome food, and some not-so-awesome-but-good-experiment dishes. For example, today I made gluten-free & dairy-free chocolate pancakes. I used Bob's Red Mills gluten-free all purpose baking flour, which was great for the fried chicken nuggets I made a few nights ago, but not so much for the pancakes. See, this flour mix is primarily garbanzo bean flour & fava bean flour, so that bean flavor that was hidden by the frying process for the chicken overwhelmed the pancakes. I will try again with a different blend soon.
Yesterday for lunch, I made a Jennie-O turkey burger topped with sauteed jalapenos and red onion, which were blended with curry spice, mustard powder, red pepper, a hint of garlic powder, and brown sugar. WOW. It was so good it felt like I should pull the curtains closed so the neighbors wouldn't see. That one is definitely going into the make-again pile.
So, not necessarily on plan with the writing/ freelance process, but I've got a few things I'm working up to. I am planning to lock myself in my office without food or water until I produce something interesting. Or die trying. Once a procrastinator always a procrastinator.
Anyway, my time on the library computer is almost up (shiny new laptop on the way). Until next time ...
Feedback is always welcome.
Thanks for stopping by!
