I think I’m getting the hang of bookkeeping, but my gosh there is so much to learn. For example, I thought debit meant decrease and credit meant increase, but apparently it’s the opposite for small businesses! I made a little cheat sheet to help me with journal entries. Does anyone have any more quotes I should add to it!?
Just call me English – for a snack I had some whole wheat cinnamon chip scone scuffin and blueberries in cream. I love floating blueberries!
Oh, and a bite of cookie at 5:00. Because there were no cocktails available!
Matt and I got to bike home together tonight! He drove his car in many days in the past month, but he’s just now getting to the point where he can bike in. Now we’re a biking team.
When I walked in the door I poured a GIANT sparkling water mug. But I can’t say I didn’t sip off that IPA in the background.. I’m trying to keep my alcohol to the weekends only, but man is it hard sometimes!
Citronella x2. Herbal bug sprayed legs. I had a mosquito land on my thigh (where I did not spray) but I got him before hit bit. Otherwise, bite free!
We had planned to make a mushroom and beef soup for dinner tonight from a half pound of beef I had in the freezer for a while and thawed last night. What were we thinking!? It’s S U M M E R! Burgers and kale chips were quickly formed instead.
The MUSHROOMS I grew MYSELF!!!!!! I’m trying a mushroom kit by Back to the Roots…a 100% sustainable urban mushroom farm started in the Bay Area by two friends in their last semester of college. The farm is made from recycled coffee grounds and produces pounds of oyster mushrooms in 10 days. Just set on a windowsill, mist twice a day, and watch them pop right out. The soil inside is composed entirely of recycled coffee grounds – a safe & sustainable soil for the mushrooms. This was one of those organic/sustainable/slow food things I just had to get behind:
And thar she grows!!
Back to the Roots is on pace in 2011 to collect, divert and reuse 1 million lbs of coffee grounds from Peet’s Coffee & Tea – now that’s some good recycling! Buy them 10% off here with code mushrooms4me10. And look for the farms on OpenSky. These would be so fun for kiddos [and Bears]!
This evening we harvested the first batch and sautéed them to put on top of our burgers. I was a bit scared to eat something that grew out of coffee on my dining room table, but they sure tasted good – like good ole ‘shrooms!
That white stuff is not a huge blob of mayonnaise – it’s melted parrano cheese! Served over cheddar garlic. With the grass-fed beef and lots of ketchup. Yummmm.
Kale chips – from our garden!! Also smothered in ketchup.
A mushroom joke for you:
Why did the mushroom go to the party?
Because he was a fun guy!
Why did he leave?
There wasn’t mush-room.
