The other day my eldest asked me to tell her in exact details about all the jobs I ever held/
I think she might have regreted this request once I started.. 🙂
So I started counting:
And apparently mommy did a lot of weird stuff before the exciting 10 years at Intel..
I waited in a wedding place.
I waited in a pub.
I waited in a bowling arena.
I picked apples in a Kibutz.
I sold hot-dogs in a hot-dog place.
I sold high class little chocolate pralines.
I was a private teacher for math and English.
I worked as the help at summer daycares.
I was recording high class trials in a courthouse.
I was a guard at the IRS building.
I was a first aid plus guard for school trips.
I helped in some rock climbing events.
I worked in a Ben&Jerri’s creamery.
I worked in a kids toys store.
I must be forgetting some from the list, but anyway, surprisingly she was extremely interested in each and every one of them.
And while telling her how much I like my current job, my store, she says: “well, sure, that’s since you are the manager there”. Telling her I do all the dirty work as well didn’t convince here, my little manager was all excited about the managing aspect of it 🙂
On days when I come home exhausted from work, and want a quick yet nourishing and tasty dinner, I make this dish. For the noodles I sometimes change the Soba to rice.
- One small onion, diced
- A bit of grated ginger (optional)
- 1 tea spoon red curry paste (optional, for you spicy flavor lovers)
- 2 table spoons natural creamy peanut butter
- 250 ml coconut milk
- 200 grams soba noodles (or rice noodles)
- ¼ tea spoon salt
- For serving:
- Some fresh lemon juice and cilantro
- Warm the oil on a non stick skillet, add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the peanut butter, ginger and curry paste and mix well using a wooden spoon to avoid lumps. Add the coconut milk and salt, reduce heat and cook until it thickens, while stirring occasionally.
- In another pan cook the soba/rice noodles acording to the instructions on the package.
- Combine the noodles with the souce. Serve with some fresh lemon juice, cilantro, and peanuts/sesame.
