i was working on a quarterly report to a federal government agency when the blackout occurred, and it did not make me happy when my screen promptly shut off as i was writing one of my final sentences. lesson learned: press SAVE a lot more.
aside from my quarterly report catastrophe, the rest of the day went wonderfully. i enjoyed the blackout: i met my neighbors, had good conversations, and thanks to a gas stove, got to cook!
i cooked some rice in a pot, and decided to fry up some chicken. i applied a simple dry rub of salt, pepper, paprika and chili powder to chicken thighs, and pan-fried them in the only frying oil i could find: coconut oil. loading up on lauric acid for the win.
