i left work after 8 hours today, after almost falling asleep 15 feet off the ground on top of a poorly secured giant suitcase, after every click of the staple gun was an effort, after getting home at midnight last night and being at work at nine, after almost crying after crying.
dave rolled his eyes at me when i said i had to leave. the guilt trip might have worked were i not reassured by the whole crew (one by one) that i didn't look too good.
when it's all over, at least i'll have rent money.
In other news, here is a pile of leg straps waiting to be sewn, there
is a batch of vegan rice and corn muffins in the oven, I could barely
ride to Balboa Park this morning, and I'm on my fourth cup of coffee.
p.s. the (approximate) recipe:
3 c cooked brown rice (or any cooked grain blend. I also cooked my rice with some spices)
2 2/3 c dry grain (I used both polenta and cornmeal, but for other batches I used oats)
1/2 T salt (you can cook it in with the rice, and/or add it later)
some olive oil, not much
3 c juice (first batch I used apple cider, it was great. Next batch got cranberry juice, and I added pear slices, also great. This one I ran out of juice 1 1/2 cups in and just used water, and it's still good. The juice makes the bread pretty sweet. I think the next batch will be a savory one with miso soup as the liquid)
embellish liberally. I recommend slices of fruit cooked in, a slice of citrus across the top to caramelize, nuts, seeds, cinnamon, dates, sour berries.... really, you can't go wrong.
bake at 350. If you want a loaf, it should bake about an hour. If you want muffins keep it down to 20 minutes or so. They'll be done when the top is dry and almost crispy but the sides are still really moist.
