I couldn’t think of a blog title, so that’s what I am going with. Here’s the deal. IF, I get offered a job at what I would consider my dream job, um, turns out the pay is just over minimum wage. I wish I were kidding. Granted, there would be tip shares that are pretty generous, which would up my pay, but that fluctuates month to month. There are some awesome perks though that I can’t get into just yet, because I still don’t want to jinx myself, but if I took this job, I’d still be eating into my savings a lot each and every month, and eventually that money will run out, so I am torn on what to do. Part of me thinks if I get this next job it might lead to bigger and better things, but I like eating things like steak and shrimp and not sure the blog would like 365 days of how to eat Ramen soup.
I am not going to think about it, until I have a decision to make, but just wanted to throw that out there. But thank you for sending your positive vibes my way!
I did my usual staggered breakfast/lunch/dinner since it was a market day. It was hot – 92 degrees. You know you sweat a lot when you drink five bottles of water during a 4 hour market and you don’t ever have to go to the bathroom!
Breakfast was a Bay’s sourdough English muffin (I puffy heart these! – 4 points) an egg/egg white spinach scramble (2) with 1/2 ounce Cabot cheese (2) and topped with chopped crisp bacon (2).
I brought a roast beef wrap for lunch with 1/2 ounce Cabot cheese, baby spinach, then added our signature mild sauce that I love and sell so much. It doesn’t matter how many containers I bring to any market, I sell out of them all. Yesterday I brought 14 and was sold out within the first hour and a half. Not only is it great on burgers or wraps, its great as a salad dressing, drizzled over grilled shrimp or grilled veggies. It’s a roasted red pepper coulis – not spicy, just really flavorful. I ended up eating lunch around 5:00. With veggie sticks and a banana, lunch came in at 8 points.
The market went well yesterday – just $16 shy of $1,000, which is good for that size market. Although around 6:30 we heard all these fire engines and I saw smoke, but couldn’t tell exactly where it was coming from. As I was walking back to my car after the market ended, I could see that they had roped off the parking lot I was parked in. Apparently an electric utility wire in the alley behind the market somehow broke off into a dumpster causing a fire. Not only that, all the businesses on that side of the street lost power.
I was delayed about 15 minutes – the firemen wanted to make sure the road was safe before we went to our cars. So I didn’t get back to the shop until 8:20, and then by the time I unloaded and drove all the way home, it was nearly 10 p.m. And I was really hungry. I ate a sliced apple on the drive back home, but I seriously wanted to just stop at each and every fast food place I drove by. But I knew I had leftovers from our taco fiesta night from last Friday. It was worth the wait! I made Pam fried tacos – 3 corn tortillas (4) 3 ounces of chicken (2) 1/2 ounce Cabot cheese (2) guacamole and black bean corn salsa (2) topped with coleslaw mix and lots of Tapatio hot sauce.
I didn’t go to bed until nearly midnight – I need to stop doing that, even though I can sleep in. But I am not into Season 3 of Grey’s Anatomy – I am hooked!
The dogs have been sleeping with me the last few nights and it’s so cute. Although they start out all cute and cuddly like this, before I know it Rummy is all stretched out on one side of the bed. The last two mornings I’ve woken up to 1/4 of the bed and the dogs have taken over the other 3/4 of the bed.
It’s going to be another hot one today but no chance of rain, so I am happy about that. I’ll take heat over storms any day of the week. Hannah is home this morning so I think breakfast pizza is on the menu.
Make it a great day!
