Chicken/pork loin/shrimp/bay scallop jambalaya is on the stove, covered, and simmering for another 20 minutes. Yum yum. I didn’t get it started before dawn, so that the stinky stuff could out with the trash. But I got it made before dusk. I rinsed as much as I could. I may need to dump the bag in the bin on Saturday at mid cycle if the aroma gets too strong to bear. Depends on the turkey timing.

Turkey is still in the fridge. I haven’t tested it this afternoon, but I assume that it’s still a little too cold in the core. Maybe tomorrow or Friday. 1.0 spicy chicken in the freezer, 0.5 in the fridge.

Made a store run last night. More pork tamales, some aloha rolls, and toilet paper. I wasn’t that needy for TP, but the reserve package had been emptied and the shelf space was bare. The shelves at the store were almost bare. I got $50 cash back and brought the mad money down to within a script refill and gas for the truck. Sunday, Monday, after the holiday madness.

The valsartan gave me quite a kick last night, and it wasn’t until afternoon that I had any notable energy. I slept off and on quite a bit. The first day isn’t as bad as the second, and the shift from morning to evening dosage reset the cycle. I may need to go to 160 mg.

Okay, the jambalaya is setting on the stove. Hadn’t even started cooling before Myka started begging for shrimp and scallops. And she’d eat the pork and chicken too.

Having boudin. It was a little too much for a single serve, so I split it and went light. The jambalaya will keep. The boudin is the last of the needs to get eaten. Myka is not thrilled with the bait and switch.
