The lights are off at my house.
This started off as ok. I’ve wanted to be more independent for a long time, and this was a good opportunity to cook without electricity.
Unfortunately, by the end of the day, I realized that there was more opportunity for practice than I was up for.
But, let’s look at what all happened.
I pulled out my cast iron pan and cooked on a propane grill.
I ended up making some Asian sweet bean dumplings.
I’ve never grilled before, so this was awesome. Yay me!
Then, the bunnies got out, and I had to track them down. Then I tried to cook 2 more dishes on the grill. Then the bunnies escaped again. And I broke a bowl. And I can’t wash dishes well because it’s dark, and the lights have now been off for 13 hours.
Once late afternoon hit, the day began going downhill fast.
I want to be more independent, and the way the current socioeconomic climate is has given me a greater sense of urgency. Today has definitely shown me some things to work on.
