Well this is the day for the fundraiser. I still have 2 batches of bread to bake so I get one started even before my coffee. Now that’s devotion. All this bread making has made me want to try some so I think I will have some cinnamon swirl bread with breakfast. Along with that we will have some scrambled eggs and kielbasa sausage and I’m good to go.

I’m not feeling nearly so motivated today, which is kind of a drag because since we cooked all day yesterday, we need to do the house cleaning today. I just don’t feel the motivation for house cleaning. Sometimes we just have to do what we don’t want to do so we can get done what needs to get done. Started with clearing off all the piles that were on the counters. Okay, so I didn’t really take care of all of the stuff, I just hid it in another room for another time, but at least the counters were clear. I have to admit that the work does go a lot faster when you have help and Melissa was a big help today.

We have a little piece of salmon to cook for lunch and I found a container with some brown sweet rice in it and thought that fish and stirfry rice would be good. Melissa is out pressure washing the back lanai so I won’t be using the outdoor grill for the fish. Fortunately, my stove has an indoor grill. The only problem with it is if the fish drips oil, it will smoke and the smoke alarm goes off. I have to keep a broom handy to swish the air in front of the alarm to get it to turn off. Well that only happened twice today while the salmon was cooking…not too bad. Spent a good deal of time prepping all the veggies for the stir fry. I found some garlic, ginger, turmeric, onions, bell peppers, carrots, celery, tomatoes and zucchini to throw into the rice. I also added some red curry paste. What a delightful combination.

After lunch and a power nap, it was time to get prepared for tonight. I had to run up to Morihara’s to pick up a bag of ice for the juice and water in the cooler. Set. Now all I have to do is cut up the ham rolls and cook the other stuff. Thank goodness we had a day of prep yesterday or I never would have gotten it all done. Thank you Melissa and Faith for all your wonderful help!
