Ha! From that title it sounds like this is going to be bad. It’s not. Well… I mean I’m difficult. I’m stubborn. I’m a control freak. I’m special like that. So making the decision to hire an assistant for my Real Estate business was difficult, and long overdue. There are a lot of non-money making tasks in my business and some of them are the more enjoyable tasks. Like going to a foreclosure property for the first time and breaking in and checking out the damages. Yah, I know, I’m twisted like that. But I really don’t need to spend a day a week in the car all day driving around taking photos of all my listings, going to town clerks offices and the like. So while I might be missing out on a little fun and excitement, I know there are better ways for me to spend my working hours. Now, having made that decision, I feel so much better! I might actually get a day a week back in my life!!
Another thing about me… I’m a hoarder. Kind of. I cleaned out my pantry of all the junk food, processed food, chips, crackers, etc… kind of a long time ago. All that food has been sitting in a bag waiting to go to the Food shelf. I also cleaned out Little Dude’s closet a little while ago (read months) and the clothes have been sitting in a bag ready to go to the clothing bins. I actually put them in the car on Sunday. I finally dropped them off today. Had to flip a bitch to get to the big yellow bin that was at the diner in town here that I didn’t even know was there. Again, difficult, but felt much better after having done it.
While on the road today, I got hungry, I didn’t pack anything to bring with me because, well, lets face it, dinner last night was not worth a repeat today for lunch. So I stopped at Minor’s Store in Fairfax and asked for a Turkey Bacon Sub without the Sub. The dude looked at me like I had 3 heads. He said, we don’t do that. Would you like a wrap? I said no, I don’t eat bread or wraps. If you give it to me, I’m just gonna throw it away, so I’d rather not take it. Can you just put it in a salad container? He said do you want a salad? I said no, I want a sub. But no bread. It took 3 of them to figure it out. I said to the dude, I just like being difficult. Sorry.
They nailed it. The lettuce served as the perfect plate/for the rest of the goodies. I’m sure it wasn’t all organic or free range, but it was the best I could do on the road. The guy I was meeting for my next appt is Paleo too, so I showed him the picture. He thought it was just as cool as I did.
Pork Chops can be difficult. I hate to admit that previously I always used Shake and Bake to cook pork chops and served them with applesauce. Lame and totally American. Remember that Brady Bunch line?
So finding a new way to cook them has proved fun and exciting!! I’ve found all sorts of recipes to try, but this one was at the top of my list now that I seem to be loving sweet potato. I still had leftover biscuits and salad from last night and Big Dude cooked up some Asparagus, and I kid you not, even little dude at the chops (not the sweet mix on top, but the chops yes). Big Dude and I made all sorts of noises eating it up. I didn’t even have to eat something for dessert after. Well, yet… It’s only 7:15.
