Sunny Arizona was a tad bit warmer yesterday. No it wasn't, I'm just trying to make myself feel better!! It's been in the mid 30's at night (but not freezing, so that's a plus) and mid 50's during the day. Towards the end of this week however, we should be up to the 70's. YAY!!
It makes it hard to want to go outside and actually "work" when it's chilly, but yesterday morning I put on my jacket and set about replacing these window weep hole covers. Tiffin is nice enough to keep these in stock, mostly because they know they fall off just looking at them!!
They should snap right into the slot, but alas, the slot is too biggeth! Is that a word? Probably not. Anyway, I cleaned off all the old glue, since it's the same ones that keep disappearing over and over, then grabbed my trusty tube of silicone.
In no time it was stuck in place and I was covered in goo up to my wrists. No worries about all the bits that got stuck to the ladder. I'm sure it will wear off at some point. As soon as it dries, if it dries in this cold, I'll be off to Yuma for a few days.
In the meantime, Every Plate is again sending food to my table. This week's three meals for two people only came to $20, part of my re-upping deal. This always makes about ten meals for me, so the price isn't bad at all. I even get to pick which meals I want, although there is an additional price for the really good stuff, like steak.
This one is called hoisin pork sloppy Joes. Didn't much look like sloppy Joe's to me, but hey, who am I to judge. Right off the bat, I was in trouble. It called for ketchup, which I left in California. What to use, what to use? All I had was barbecue sauce. Pretty close, right?
I shredded carrots, cut up Persian cucumbers (which I've never seen in any store in my life), grated lime peel and added a tad of sugar and the juice of one lime. Hmmm ... this is not bad. How could that be? It sounds terrible! I browned the ground pork, proud I didn't set off any smoke alarms, and dumped in the hoisin, soy sauce, sriracha and barbecue sauce.
With a toasted bun, it looked rather pretty, but my taste buds weren't feeling it until I took that first bite. Yao!!!! This is mighty tasty! Who knew you could have carrots on a hamburger of sorts! Oops! I did it again. I actually made a tasty lunch from some weird ingredients!
