Scrumptious Mushrooms and Screamers

Thanks to everyone for your sympathy and words of advice yesterday. I'm 99.9% sure that I'm going to leave the job. Even with someone new coming in, I just don't feel the excitement I once had for the job. I'll stay until I get to discuss it with Sean and then I'll most likely be out of there. I haven't decided yet or not if I want to look for something else. I'd kind of like to be able to work on getting my Masters (FINALLY) working more on my photography and traveling without having to worry about taking time off for it.

Today I bought some portabella mushrooms at the the commissary. I wasn't sure exactly how I wanted to cook them, but I knew I was in the mood for a mushroom sandwich. A google search and wha-la! I found this recipe. Instead of just balsamic vinegar, I used Andrea's recipe for Italian dressing that I had previously made and then combined it with the soy sauce. Other modifications I made was using one slice of bread, using parmesean cheese lightly sprinkled on top and I had to forgo the spinach as I had none. It was DELISH! I highly recommend making it for yourself.

Has anyone watched Wheel of Fortune lately? It's like a constant barrage of screaming. Everyday there is at least one young, 20-something contestant who SHRIEKS everytime she solves the puzzle. I have to say it's very off-putting and I feel for Pat Sajak. I bet sometimes he just wants to tell them to can it.

I'm not surprised to hear that you will probably leave your job. In that same situation, I imagine I would do the same exact thing. Hope you are able to talk to him soon and get the whole thing figured out!

They are delicious grilled too -- clean off the ribs, and marinate with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Awesome with steak.

I saw this Army wife on there not too long ago. She was younger but she kept giving... I don't even know if I can describe it... but everytime she was on there, she did this shooting gun thing and made a clicking sound with her hand. It was obnoxious! I felt bad for her husband. She would totally be the wife the other wives make fun of!

That sandwich sounds awesome! Funny you say that about Wheel of Fortune. They have a commercial here in the states based on all the screaming :)

That sandwich does sound really good

And that my friend is why I don't watch Wheel of Fortune. That and when people cheer on the wheel, it's like "Hello, that's an innatimate object!!!"
These days it's allllll about the jeopardy in this household!

Coming over from Satcey's @ the Cannon Family to say congrats on the passing of the award to you. Good luck in your new adventure- I hope everything works out for you.

I think that's the best decision considering the circumstances. It's never great to stay working somewhere when the people can make it miserable. Yay for taking more photography!!

I love it because they air Wheel and Jeopardy prior to them airing in the states. You can totally crash the fan message boards and ruin their day or call your grandma while she watches it and impress her with your skills. It's the little things...
