Food Time!!

An interesting recipe for a sauce came from menshealth magazine.
1 TBSP mustard any kind
1 TBSP soy sauce
1 TBSP honey
1 TBSP brown sugar
1 TBSP cayenne pepper
1/2 TBSP sesame seed oil

This glaze works well with any fish.  First cook the fish on one side, in a pan that can go into the oven at 450 degrees.  In about two minutes flip the fish, apply some sauce and place back into the oven.  Do this again for the next two minutes.  Pull the fish out and place fish on plate and pour sauce onto fish, rice, or anything else on the plate that you want to have that flavor.

Relocating to Florida

I am excited one week out from moving to Florida and live my dreams as a cook down there.  Most people would consider New York, or California or Las Vegas.  I like the south Florida atmosphere better and thats why i chose to move to south Florida and live down there for good hopefully.  I got another whip because parents did not think the truck i had would last, now i gotta sell it before i leave, which wont happen. 

Once again i need to find a job down there for the evening times and i want to be a bouncer on the weekends which is good money, as i have heard.  Good thing for my grappling background or i would have never thought to be a bouncer on just strength alone..


Comes to the point that we live in a time and era that we get things simply because we want something.  For example, my dad has an ipod, iphone, ipad, imac and soon that itv thing for the tv.  But I think when it comes to technology it can be understood.  For more realistic examples is that most of us eat when we want to not when we have too.  Drive past someone and say, "I'm in the mood for this or that" instead of, "I'm starving what can i eat."  Walk past a store in the mall and think i need to have those shoes or jacket, wear it for a month or two and dont wear it again.  Hell i havent bought an item of clothing in a while, does that make me cheap or dirty?  Perhaps I have better use for my money like gas, food, and alcohol for some strange reason. 

While we eat when we see something good, which is ok because that is psychological,  others around the world have to decide to either eat or drink water.  This past weekend when i was volunteering, at a table there was a collection of bottles half way emptied of water and the person did not take it.  There was around 7 bottles i threw away and made me sick that people in Haiti were killing each other over that and we can just walk away from it.

We have came to an age in which we use every resource known to man and realize, oh sh!t we might run out of this or that lets find other ways to create, consume, save energy.  Which is a good approach but selection when we use everything like there's no tomorrow.  This may sound corny but Agent Smith in the matrix made a revelation that a human being isnt a mammal.  I can say this is true because, unlike humans, mammals adapt to their environment and ecosystem  and live with everything around it.  Us humans on the other hand consume consume consume and then move on somewhere else multiple and do the same thing.

Attention Span While Driving

 What happen to going from point A to point B safely and fully aware?  Not anymore.  We care more about food, music(for me), phone calls, texts, etc.  Driving is described as a controlled operation of a land vehicle. Is getting something in the drive through really going to be cold by the time you get home?  MICROWAVE.  OVEN.  Or even better.  COOK THE FOOD YOUR DAMN SELF.  Eating and driving disgusts me more than people evading my personal space ( 60/40).  I was guilty of this act when i was younger when i didnt know what a moving vehicle can do to another moving vehicle.  I dont care how hungry you are and if you are pull over, eat, gain weight, then be on your way. 

Phones and driving i was guilty, a little am, in the past of using the phone and driving at the same time.  But then again when you drive a manual you get use to multitasking so it doesnt seem like a crime to us.  No text is too important not to answer its like an email.  It gets sent there is no urgent option so you do not have to read it asap!  Phone calls while driving, researchers now say even when you have a blue tooth device you will still be distracted the same as if you didnt have one in.  What I do is when someone calls either call them back when im not driving anymore, answer and say i'll call you back, or just take a voicemail.

People need to realize they are in control of a 2-3 ton machine and any little jerk here or there can mane or even kill people including yourself.  Of course people do not realize this on the main interstates going 70mph plus on the phone or eating or texting.  You are liable for the actions that happen between you and the car.  When something happens you rear end someone or fender bender my take is no excuse.

knowledge for thought----->>>>People are getting to comfortable when driving which leads to accidents

Oversized Suv's for what????

It has came to my attention America that we drive oversized vehicles for no apparent reason.  I say this because every time i drive down the road i see one, two or even three people in an oversized suv like the one pictured above.  Whats the point of having a huge suv if you do not use it everyday for its purpose?  I have a small suv, Isuzu rodeo, horrible on gas, big enough for some tasks and small enough for others. If you have a family of 4 then by all means have a big suv like this one.  By when you get an suv like this dont bitch and wine about gas prices, because you spend alot regardless of the prices. 

Knowledge for thought----->>>> stop buying big vehicles to 'be safe' when you still cant drive it anyways.

My current job as a co-op

My current job is being an intern for a company called CMI whom contracts me out to Capital One.  The atmosphere is so so, relaxed for the most part and stressful when things need to get done before 5p.m. when they tell you at 4:30p.m.  Although, I wouldn't have thought to go to culinary school if I didn't get an IT job like this.  This job made me realize that the IT world isn't for me, i need chaos and yelling in my ear 24/7 in order for me to strive and climb ladders.  Every time someone at Capital One gives me work to do I knock it out as fast as possible, leaving me bored for the remaining time of the day.  Mornings are kind of busy but not really because I know the tasks I have to do.  I currently help out three departments at Capital One.  Why?  Well when I first got there I as automatically assigned to two groups, one dealt with testing, and the other managing source code is what they call it.  A couple of months down the road I hopped on another department and they offer me more work then the other two combined but I like being busy the whole day.  There is nothing like coming home tired as hell and beat up, after training of course, because that is when you know you accomplished something.  Like i ran off topic earlier, in the morning I'm kind of busy but after lunch, kill me.  Every single job I had forbid me to sit down and now I have a job that I have to sit down and it kills me.  When I don't have work to do i get up and walk around.  The other computer people stay on their computers for hours at a time til its lunch or time to leave or use the bathroom, which is once a week for some people.  Look on the bright side I got free pens for work.
