One of the hobbies I’ve added to my repertoire this past year has has been the 1940’s Midwest art of making pickles. Normally, much of the produce I buy at the farmers market or receive as part of a CSA ends up in an airtight jar of vinegar. But more on that another time. Today’s post is about another vinegar infused airtight jar of yum. Here is my newest culinary experiment, and strangely enough, the current best seller on Zetsy, the Etsy in my mind. So bring your tired, hungry, huddled masses of naked hot dogs, and peep my newest creation, Bourbon & Honey Whole Grain Mustard.
Yes, it’s delicious. Yes, I’ve already posted it to Instagram using a cool ass 1970’s filter. And finally, yes, one day you may be able to buy it at a local market or online. Maybe. One day. Also, get it? Mustarded! Hilarious, I know. Ann Coulter takes the heat while I get the laughs.
In other news, unemployment isn’t as fun as I thought it would be. That first week I was all about movies and museums while thinking about road trips and flights and all the time to do whatever I wanted. But I forgot that requires an income. But it’s getting better. I’ve gotten on a schedule. It doesn’t have exact times, but it goes a little like this:
- Wake up
- Go for a jog
- Eat breakfast
- Look for jobs
- Feel worthless and overwhelmed
- Go for a walk
- Eat lunch
- Look for jobs
- Make dinner
- Watch 2 episodes of Sons of Anarchy
- Go to sleep
Maybe that’s an exaggeration ( I don’t actually exercise), but it’s getting rough over here. Even the homeless people don’t spange me anymore. It’s like they know I’m one of them now, except I have a place to live, and I rarely pee myself. At least when I’m sober anyhow.
I did have a phone interview today though, and another one tomorrow. So in honor of that, please enjoy this representation of me at a business meeting being tested for radiation.
What gets you through the rough days? How much internet porn is too much when it’s still daylight out? What should i pickle next? Any suggestions for mustard flavors? I’ve already made a delightful herbed one as well with some thyme I stole from the neighbors garden.
