This time next year i will be so busy with the club i won't know what to do, in the mean time....

Saturday I made a jambalaya, it used andouille sausage that i had my fiance send up from Tip Top meats in carlsbad, Ca. The flavor was nice and well rounded. The rice was a little mushy. but all in all it was a great dish.

The only person to show was Dawn (who works at the hospital), she brought over some thai food that was pretty good. There was a nice peanut sauce, that IMHO could have had more heat!!

Her daughter loved my cats, and even thought Dark star (the large male) was pregnant, i said he was just fat.

I hope to have another meeting next month with more people, i think i will plan it for the day of the opening of the farmers market. We can do a tour and pick some fresh ingredients for cooking.

Sunday i made a clam chowder out of the clams and juice the guys upstairs gave me, it came out really good (except i let it come to a boil which curdled the milk a little, so it had a slight bumpy look).

Tonight, i made the jambalaya again. This time i made the vegetables a little chunkier and added 2 jalepeno's and 1 habenaro to kick the heat up a little. (BAM!!)

This day is without food blogs

From the NY Time's Editorial Desk May 2,2006:
"One of the Internet's great strengths is that a single blogger or a small political group can inexpensively create a Web page that is just as accessible to the world as Microsoft's home page. But this democratic Internet would be in danger if the companies that deliver Internet service changed the rules so that Web sites that pay them money would be easily accessible, while little-guy sites would be harder to access, and slower to navigate".

Well, i have jumped on the bandwagon (Hey?!!?! Where's the band!!??). Anywho, big business wins and we lose again. Its up their with paying for 250 channels and all you really watch are maybe 7-12 or that gas stations all raise their prices to the same price at the same time (except the one who is 1 penny less than the other stations to show you he is really competing). We keep getting screwed and they keep getting paid.

So, please go to these sites and register!!

Save the Internet Sign a petition!! Nuetrality?? hands off!!!

OYFG!! What a day!

What a horrible day, I find a steam leak in 1 sterilizer and after it is fixed the unit lockes up. The other sterilizer is leaking somewhere also and I have a third possibly having a problem.

I was able to get the blood typing unit working again and passing QC, but still cant get above 54 gain!

Had a nice dinner, Canadian farmed salmon with salt and pepper and lime with noodles and tomato sauce and a half of a avocado. I wanted to make cupcakes tonight, but I will wait till tomorrow.
