Where am I?
I have been busting my butt for the big IP project I've been stressing about. But, it is FINISHED!!!! YAY!!! I was so relieved when it was finished I literally cried, not too much, but a bit. It was a crazy experience. I did reflect on it though, and this is how I feel: I loved it. In the end I learned SOOO much about organizing a group and managing people. My biggest issue, which I mentioned about a year ago, was that I had issues motivating people to want to work on something. When I worked in CDV last summer I had issues teaching unmotivated coworkers, but this project really made something click. It was pretty cool. And I made some quality friends out it too. All in all I enjoyed it. The teacher in charge of the project told me, after hand-in, that when he saw my group, that he was expecting to have me come to his office crying in the 3rd week or so. hahahahaha!! No, I never felt that way actually. I was really surprised with myself during this project. I didn't freak out at anyone, I didn't break down, I got close once though, and I didn't die hahaha. It is over now, and that means I have TONS of free time on my hands yay! Finally. That is why I was not writing for a bit. But I am back now. WIth some pictures:
This is the Cashew Alfredo sauce I mentioned earlier. I put it atop:
- Leftover roasted rosemary turkey breast (sliced)
- Leftover, cold, roasted butternut squash (amazing idea!)
- Spiralized Zuchini (yes I know, my staple)
- Sliced Cherry Tomatoes
This is something I made at some point in the past few days! SO YUMM!! Venison in redwine sauce atop a cauliflower broccolli "cake" with steamed broccolli and caulifower as a side, can you tell I had too much broc and cauli?
-Marinade venison entrocote(donno what this is in english) with redwine, some vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic, and rosemary
-Steam lots of broc and cauli
-Puree some of them, put in a pot on heat, add cream, and butter (or olive oil, but I made this at a friend's place) and salt to taste, and some rice flour or regular flour if it needs to thicken
-Put puree in a skillet and brown it so it has a more cake like texture
-Brown the venison in a skillet with some olive oil and throw in some mushrooms
-Add the marinade before the venison is fully cooked and simmer until sauce is desired consistency or meat is done
-Time it right so everything is hot at the end and eat yum!
I mention the funi sometimes and I'm sure you don't know what I'm talking about, so I took a picture of it. It is just a cable car to go up and down the mountain. This is what I take to school in the morning, and home at night. I usually don't take it to buy groceries thogh because I live close enough to the top of the mountain that I like to walk.
I saw my favorite clouds and had to share: lenticular clouds! They look like lenses above the mountains. Awesome.
These are just two pictures of my morning view taking the funi to school, what I get to look at before I hop on the transport.
