Curried Beef Short Ribs

Note: I found this was more realistically four servings.

Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

Waiting For The Rainbow

Ever put off a blog entry because even you don't want to hear you complain again? This isn't so much a complaint as it is, well, my life. I will say that it sucked that I couldn't squeeze in lunch until 3pm and even then it was a cryo diet meal.
Best part of the day was during a meeting when discussing how to frame a research question this guy said, "We need to go right to the nuts." I discreetly choked on my coffee. Clearly I was the only child in the room because not only was I the only one to react but I giggled about it for the rest of the day.
I was planning on an evening of running errands and catching up on chores and correspondence. At 4:15 (thanks for the notice) Tom called and stated he was sick and asked if could take Keegan. I had to rearrange some things and call in a favor but I did it because I didn't want Keegan exposed to anything. Perhaps the next time I am sick and need help he will be more sympathetic. The only dilemma is that I need to leave for a meeting by 6:15am and Keegan's daycare doesn't open until 7:30am. So I am waiting for my mom who will spend the night and take Keegan for me before heading an hour south to her job. I hope she gets here soon because I need to put the carseat in her car and go over Keegan's morning routine and daycare procedures and get to bed so I can wake up at 5am.
I take my last two penicillin pills tomorrow and I have this fear that I will catch something immediately after they leave my bloodstream. Usually I'm not so negative but I feel pretty beaten down by my immune system this year.
There are things I want to blog about but I can't find the time and personal space to do so. I'd like to finish up about my trip last weekend. I have a new divorce hurt that is weighing on my mind. I like to actually utilize my sense of humor one of these days. I'd like to celebrate the good in my life.
