25. April, 2005 - more work

Another weekend. Neither especially good nor bad, but some of each. On Friday I cooked up the salt encrusted chicken recipe from Jamie Oliver. It came out pretty well, but I don’t think I’ll do it again. Eight bucks for the bird, but ten for the spices, herbs and salt (half of which is for the fennel, which goes on the outside of the bird, and didn’t contribute much flavor I could taste), so it’s not a cheap recipe. Plus it’s hard to get the right grind of salt here. The rock salt is way too chunky (and might have things in it that aren’t good for you), and kosher salt is too fine. So even though the bird came out tasty, between the hassle and the cost, I don’t think I’ll do it again.

Satuday, was a day for being social. I went out to Burnsville with Mark and shot up some paper, then we grabbed Jim, and went down to Dulono’s to watch Cousin Dad. We ended up seeing Kari there, too, and between chatting with her and enjoying the music, we stayed through a set and a half. Should have called it a night at that point, but Jim wanted to swing by Manning’s. We did, and then headed to the Sporty for another. And a few more. Sunday was a pretty lazy day, as a result.

Today, I’ve got some more work to do, and I think it’s time to get serious about looking for a long-term solution to the work thing. I either need to get started on a project that I can sell soon, or I need to update the resume so I can shop myself around more effectively. The big question that remains is whether I’m open to a full-time job working for someone else, and I think I might be.
