Taco Tuesday is one if my faves.
At work we have this stupid morning departmental meeting every day, every single day. My coworker and I hate it. The manager drones on and it does not help that he speaks like his mouth is full of marbles so you can only understand about half of what he says. We have found a secret weapon to shorten the length of the meetings. My coworker picked up a few cans of this stuff on clearance at some drug store. It smells so freakin bad. Now every morning before the meeting we “Blade up” with this stuff. Just douse ourselves in it. People walk in the room and their eyes water from the stench. People are either afraid of us or polite because they never say anything about how bad we reek, but the meetings are much shorter now. Yes, we act like we are twelve sometimes
most of the time at work.
Ingredients1 tsp cilantro, finely minced2 tsp shallots, finely minced1 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar1 can(s) whole tomatoes1 Tbsp olive oil1 bunch fresh thyme2 c red balsamic vinegar1 Tbsp oil, herb infused1 small tri-wedge fresh mozzarella, gouda or brie1 sprig(s) basil leaf, (deep fried optional)
Directions1. Heat oven to 200 Place cilantro, shallots, and white balsamic in a bowl. Mix well and place in refrigerator2. Cut the tops off the tomatoes, and remove the seeds. Place them on a baking rack. Add a touch of olive oil to the top. Then spread the thyme evenly over all the tomatoes. Place in the oven and roast for 45-60 minutes3. Tomato should be very soft, but still be able to hold its shape. While the tomatoes are cooking place the red balsamic in a pot and reduce down to a thick sauce. Once it is reduced place it in the refrigerator and cool. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.4. Carefully remove the skin and dice the tomato into ¼” cubes. Place in a bowl and chill for an hour5. Drain the cilantro mix and add the tomatoes. Try to drain as much liquid as possible. Place a cylindrical mold on a plate and place the tomato tartar inside.6. Add the reduced balsamic and herb infused oil on the plate. Garnish with a cheese wedge and a basil leaf.recipe from justapinch.com pics n recreation chelf.tumblr.com
Gonna make this soon. Follow this person for great food, fashion, and music. She’s pretty friendly too.
The only good thing about going to work @ 0500 on a Sunday. No other cars on the road. Sort of apocalyptic feeling.
Agree. Sucks to work today. Nobody should have to work weekends, especially without days off before. 11 days in a row working and on 24 hour call is hell. Hate my boss and everything about him.
Paged by work 4 times already tonight. I make a lot of one pan meals I guess. Roman beans, broccoli, red peppers, olives, tomatoes, seasoned with rosemary, garlic, oregano, basil and salt and pepper. Green onions and Parmesan.
A case of world war 2 German hand grenades abandoned by retreating troops in Russia found in a lake by battlefield archeologists.
Potatoes, cauliflower, tomatoes in turmeric garlic ginger sauce, fried chickpeas for dinner. Spinach salad with fat free feta, dried cranberries, lemon juice and red onions.
Trying to eat some healthy food tonight. White beans, tomatoes, and broccoli with kale lemon salad. Hopefully this will help me feel better.
Blood drawn, steroids, and migraine pills. Yay. My blood pressure was super high and my heart rate was way elevated causing my head to pound from the inside. Hopefully this will help.
