Saturday Morning Blues
My breakfast today was four crispy strips of bacon, three fried eggs with runny yolks and 3 slices of cheese. Coffee. My daughter suggested Nellie's cage free eggs and they actually were pretty nice but not as fresh as I thought they would be (the white spread in the pan--not a sign of freshness) but the yolks were golden and there were no weird things attached. I covered the frypan with a lid, lowered the heat and let the steam cook the whites. Perfect. Now a nice crisp slice of toast would have made all the difference. Or a blueberry pancake under all three eggs. That's the way I like them.
I have another zucchini experiment in the oven baking. Sort of a pizza casserole. Only I baked it incorrectly. I was supposed to bake the 4 cups of shredded zuke, 2 eggs and one cup mozzarella for 20 minutes at 400 and THEN add the crispy browned beef, onion, spaghetti sauce and second cup of mozzarella. Instead, I added the meat over the uncooked zucchini. And I used pizza sauce. That's what happens when you "think" you remember the directions. It's now been baking for much longer than 40 minutes and looks very, very brown.
I am also wearing socks with my LLBean ballet flats. Trying to stretch out the toe section so it doesn't rub on my toes. The salesperson (years ago) suggested I buy the 9 and not the 9.5 because the leather stretches and the shoes will fall off. Well, that never happened. I don't wear the shoes often enough because they hurt my toes. So nothing has stretched. Today, socks and shoes until I get tired of it. The heel portion fits beautifully. And on days when I have had no salt--- the shoes always fit, but still rub my toes. I'd love to be able to wear the flats all the time with my three pairs of black pants. Alas, I can't.
I am also apprehensive about an employment interview on Monday morning. I applied on line for a seasonal job and got invited to an in person interview. Now I am wondering why I did this. Why complicate my life further? I hope I don't get Googled. What if they read this blog???? OMG.
I think I will have another cup of coffee and make a short list of "things to do" that I might be able to work on. I also have the 10 by 10 art piece to finish by the 25th. Riley wants a walk. I need a nap.
