For Di.

My Uncle Michael's girlfriend Diane is a TV Commercial Producer, and I cracked up when I saw this ad because she tells us stories like this when we see her....

Ok, 50 minutes.

So, it took 50 minutes to cook the squash, then you scoop it out of the skin, make sure you get all the goodness.

Put it in a food processor, add some cinnimon, and honey, a dollop of butter and a little salt.

Puree it up!
Put it in a little oven save dish...

I am going to top it with some brown sugar and bake it tonight as a side dish for dinner. I will probably bake it at 375 for about 10 mins just to melt the brown sugar and heat it through.



So, It's now taken over 30 mins to cook the squash... still not done...

I'm cooking.

Today's dish:
Butternut Squash Mush.
(I made that up)

first you cut the squash long ways.

Then you scoop out the seeds and stuff.
Then you spread some BUTTAH on them! All over the meat parts. This keeps the squash moist in the oven.

Get that buttah all over it.

Now, put those on a metal pan and put them in the oven butter side up like that, 350 degrees for 20-30 mins.

They are in the oven now... I will post the rest of the experiment er... um... I mean recipe, after they come out so I can take more pics.

OH blah.

I am so frustrated. I haven't heard from any of the boats that said they were interested in me. (Haha! At least it's boats and not guys!) I got a couple of nibbles on the bait this morning from other crew sites so maybe that will pan out. I even have Heather on Meerkat acting as my crew agent in La Paz. Sounds so exotic! (Thanks for asking Heather! I should print out some flyers with my resume and picture on it and you can post them around the marina! I could pay you in peanut butter.)

Anywhooooo, I went by the little shop that needed part time help and she had already hired someone. Oh well, I wasn't meant to work here. I have wicked heartburn and no motivation. I did buy some presents for upcoming birthdays and such. Nothing big, just fun stuff that will most definitely bring a smile to the faces of two very awesome ladies.

In other news, I lost my keychain. Not that it had any keys on it that still worked but it did have my caribeaner on it. And I can't have keys on a chain without a caribeaner or I will lose them. Oh wait. Whatever. I lost them in the shuffle of moving like 3 times in a month. Is that how you spell caribeaner?

I was a caribbeaner once....

So, I think I might call the guy that I interviewed with on Wednesday this afternoon just to touch base with him and let him know I am still interested. Why the hell do we have to capitalize weekday names? Grrrr.

One of the nibbles I got today was from a 108ft M/Y based in St. Pete, Florida. Sounds lame. The owner only uses it on the weekends. Sounds like that Australia job and I hated that shit. So, I will be declining that job. Also the dude only wants to pay 2800 a month for a deck/stew/chef!!! HAHAHA HE IS OUT OF HIS FUCKING MIND! I will tell him no one in their right mind would do it for less than 4000 a month and see what he says... tee heee. It's true though.

I am a picky bitch. But if you had been in as many shitty boat situations as I have you would be picky too.


And, I keep having dreams that I can't distinguish from reality. Like I dream about everyday occurrences like cooking or talking on the phone. I had a dream last night that I talked to Justin on Avalon and he said they had decided not to hire me. So I woke up all sad and depressed and it seriously took me an hour to realize I had not talked to him. I'm losing it.

But .... I was really relieved when I realized I hadn't talked to him so that was good.
