It's an overcast day today with rain in the forecast. It rained on and off last night into this morning. More rain is expected this afternoon.
I got Mofongo and a bunch of other things to eat for dinner last night. Because I filled up on all the other things I only tasted the mofongo so will be my lunch or dinner tonight. I am having trouble deciding if I want to save it for after work or eat it before work. I'm leaning towards having it for lunch and then having a light supper. I got the Pernil Trifongo which is "Shredded pork, layers of 'arroz con gandules' (rice with pigeon peas), sweet plantains and MofonGo with your choice of toppings" I got all the toppings on the side. The toppings include chimichurri sauce, mayo-ketchup, salsa.
The other things I got are: Alcapuria Bites - Yuca 'masa' (dough) stuffed with authentic 'picadillo' (ground beef) fried to perfection Canoa - A whole plantain stuffed with your choice of seasoned beef, shredded pork or chicken topped with mozzarella cheese baked to perfection Papa Rellenos Bites - Delicious bites of mashed potatoes filled with authentic 'picadillo' (ground beef) and for dessert I got a Coquito cupcake (which I didn't eat yet because when I stopped at the grocery store to get seltzer water I also picked up a croissant with whipped cream and strawberries and ate that last night)
My keys aren't actually LOST-lost; they're somewhere in my car, but 15 minutes of going through the car did nothing to find them, so I'm going to be using my backup set of keys for the foreseeable future. I really have no further desire to look for them today. I had Chinese food for lunch after my first choice, Chipotle, had way too long a line. I predict they're going to be swamped, also for the foreseeable future, so I need to go back to ordering online with them.
I had chicken with broccoli, which I hope my colon appreciates. It was delicious.
It's time to head into work but I wanted to take a minute to start the Daily. I've got big plans today. I'm getting my car washed on the way to the airport. Try not to be jealous.
To supplement my part time hours this week I've been able to pick up some overtime. I'm starting at noon today instead of 2:30. I almost forgot that means I have to leave the house before noon. The morning hours have passed quickly and suddenly it's nearly time to go. I hope the rest of the day passes as quickly.
I saw Bill Irwin's award-winning On Beckett at Irish Rep in 2018, and they've just recently filmed it for streaming -- this weekend only! I highly recommend giving it a look, and better still, tickets are free (though a donation, if you can, is as always encouraged):
Though apparently prerecorded, they do seem to be live-streaming it, in the sense of appointment-watching as opposed to viewing-on-demand. The remaining showtimes are Saturday at 3pm and 8pm, and Sunday at 3pm.
I went to the grocery store today and got Coke, salad, Parmesan cheese, Rice-a-Roni and potato chips. I should have gotten fried chicken. It was on my list to look for it, but I forgot. So I had salad for lunch, and I'm hungry again. I can eat the potato chips, but once I open them, the bag is not long for this world.
