My computer and my phone have both chosen today to become virtually unusable, so as I type this I’m making the transition from PC and Droid to MacBook Air and iPhone. It’s sort of like how I imagine it would be to learn to use a prosthetic arm after you had to have one amputated due to gout. Except more painful and frustrating (not that I’m feeling dramatic about it or anything).
I’ve already called Jason 4 times almost in tears. At one point I was near suicidal because every time I tried to log in to Tweetdeck to check my Twitter it told me I had the wrong password. I tried every possible password it could be and then I finally just hit the ‘I’m a dummy and I forgot my password, please help me reset it’ link. The final straw was that even that did not work. Tweetdeck kept giving me a message that said, “Can’t complete this action, something went wrong”.
I feel like I should maybe just have that tattooed to my forehead. It feels so appropriate for my life.
Eventually I realized the reason I couldn’t log into Tweetdeck is that I had switched to Hootsuite as my Twitter platform about a year ago.
And I haven’t even had any wine yet today.
Something clearly did go wrong. In my brain. Long ago.
I feel like if I just had last night’s dinner in front of me right now, things might be better. More cheerful at least. It was really good. A quick and easy ‘chimichurri’ over broiled salmon. (I’m not sure what makes a chimichurri a chimichurri, but I think I like chimichurri.)
Let’s not even discuss the scrollpad issue.
|Salmon with Mango Chimichurri|
- 2 lbs of salmon, skin on
- 1 bunch of cilantro, diced
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 mango, pitted, peeled, diced
- salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees with a cookie sheet inside it also preheating.
- Remove cookie sheet and quickly oil it before it cools down. Season salmon with salt and pepper and place it on the cookie sheet, skin up.
- Bake 5 mins. Remove before the skin burns.
- Using spatula, so the fish doesn’t shred, flip the fish over so the skin is down. Place back in the oven for 6 minutes. Turn the oven to broil on high and broil another 5 minutes, or until fish begins to crisp. Remove from the oven.
- Mix cilantro, red pepper flakes, veg oil, lime juice and mango.
- Cut the salmon into 6 pieces and serve with mango mixture on top.
