Monday, March 16, 2009

Well woke up to the dogs barking up a storm as my hubby was stomping the snow off his boots out on the front porch. I glanced at the time; 7AM… wonder why he didn’t call me? I don’t even want to comment on how bad a morning we had dealing with some stressful BS up at the barge. I will leave it at that………… …..

The boardwalks are covered in snow and ice. The wind is very cold and blowing out of the North at about 15-20MPH, gusting up to at least 30. The temps this morning are hovering in the low to mid 20’s. There are constant white out snow squalls, the dogs didn’t like nothing about going out. Roscoe didn’t even get off the porch! I got down to work right at 10, Eva was just opening the store, I walked up stairs and my mom was just finishing entering in yesterday’s charge slips.

There is a Corp meeting this afternoon. We weren’t able to get payroll done this morning, waiting for payroll updates to finish downloading. I was able to get a couple checks for the Post Office made out though, bought their cash off them so they can get their deposits done. The payroll updates weren’t finished by the time lunch rolled around, so I figured I’d just wait until after lunch. We decided to eat at the café. I had my usual and the hubby had chicken nuggets.

I got back to work this afternoon and got all the payroll checks printed out, all the reports printed and filed. Now to just wait for everyone to come pick up their checks and cash them for them. I have slowly been able to get people to fill out those Health care support cards, I think I have about half the town already! YAY! So far I have 34 of them filled out and 26 that haven’t filled one out for me, yet… only problem is that I only have 9 of these cards left… and I know a couple people have them but just haven’t brought them back to me just yet…. I’m happy to have as many as I do have filled out! Glad to be of help to our clinic!

Well it was a pretty normal busy Monday. I have a store order that I’m starting and will have out to the vendors by end of the day tomorrow. I have to find something cute and green to wear tomorrow, don’t want anyone to be pinching me now... LOL…

Oh yeah so I made King Crab Cakes last night, they were awesome! I could only eat two and felt too full to try to eat another!! I took pix of the process as I was doing it. I like to use about 1-2 sections of crab (about 1 whole crab, you know 2 claws and 6 legs!), half an onion sautéed, ½ cup mayo, 1 egg, and 2 of those things that Ritz come in (the wrapper full of crackers, but with them smashed into crumbs), and about a teaspoon of mustard. I put a little salt and pepper, and a touch of garlic pepper and lemon pepper. Then I shake about ¼ cup of Lea and Perrin’s sauce over it all, then mix and make patties and pan fried them until they were browned on both sides and cooked all the way thru. Some of them I accidentally burned… no one said I was perfect :P LOL! They tasted awesome though, I love the taste the Ritz gives them!

I got us pork chops for dinner. We’ll have them with mashed potatoes, gravy, corn on the cob and some jellied cranberry sauce. Sounds great to me! :D

Ok well I hope everyone had a great Monday! Until tomorrow, TTFN.
