Hopefully my frustrating week comes to an end today.
As I mentioned yesterday, last night was supposed to be a night of relaxation. But first, I had to go to Kroger, where I stupidly hit a curb parking. Great, tempt fate with the tires some more…
One of the reasons I had to go to Kroger was to buy the ingredients to make the cheesy andouille sausage grit cakes that I take to Hartwell each year. After cooking, tHese need to be refrigerated overnight. The other was to buy gas for the car.
My plan was to make a vegetarian batch, put it into to the refrigerator, make and eat my dinner, and then make a meat batch and put it into the refrigerator. Including washing up I expected to be done by 8pm, then it would become streaming media time.
The plan started to fall apart as I was preparing the first batch and the electricity in my house went out. Not unusual for my street, I undauntedly put a headlamp on and continued to cook. After all, I couldnâ€™t put the first batch directly into the refrigerator, and I expected the electricity would return within an hour.
After cooking my dinner outside using my portable grill, I started to get concerned. And then the bottom fell out of the evening when I learned that the electricity was out because some shitheads ended their high-speed chase by hitting power poles a few blocks from my house, and Georgia Power estimated electric restoration at 11:45pm.
At 8:30pm I tasted my first batch before dumping it into the trash. There was no way to prepare a second batch.
Oh yeah, more medical exams today!
