Weather, Walk, Work and Tempeh

It was 80 degrees here today. Went for a walk in the park this morning and saw some deer.

Sorry, I haven't been blogging lately. I worked 40-45 hours this past week. Tough life I have, huh? I had been working about 28 hours because the economy is kicking our ass a
nd we had to cut everyone's time. If our sales don't increase soon, we'll have to lay off a couple more people. But I'm an optimist. I think we'll make it.

This week I worked extra hours because someone was out with a back injury all week and I had to fill in for her. But also because I got absorbed in some of my projects and just kept going. I do that sometimes. I'm such a good worker bee. It's a little bit obsessive.

I realize that when I work a full 8-hour day, I just don't have the creative energy it takes to blog. Yes, I know. You people with multiple children at home must really be feeling sorry for me right now.

Today I am going to try to make
Herbed Bulgur-Lentil Pilaf and cook up some Tempeh to go with it. No meat gloves needed today.

According to
Tempeh Info Website, tempeh is "a fermented food made by the controlled fermentation of cooked soybeans with a Rhizopus mold (tempeh starter)." YUM!

I've had it before. It is good. I swear, one of these days I'll become a vegetarian.
