It has been a nice weekend. Pretty low-key but relaxing and I felt like I have gotten a lot accomplished today. I have my school real estate test in the morning. I will need to study tonight but I should do well. I am confident.
Today I met the contractor at the house and we talked a lot about the moisture issue and may be calling in a specialist. I hope it gets resolved without much cost. It will get corrected either way, it has to, no other option. I am nothing if not persistent.
I spoke with my Realtor and he gave me some very good advice and contacts for getting into a brokerage firm. I made a few calls and I now have two interviews this week. One of them at Palmer House seems very promising.
After some hardcore thrift store hunting, I made it home to dig into the mess that is clearing up an 11 year old criminal charge to get my real estate license. Of course, the State of Maine gave me the run around but I called my mother (who works for the state) and put her on the case. She is pretty good at getting the job done, like mother like son.
Last night I made an inspired treat while Jamie and I watched Grizzly Man. I have been reading the La Belle Vegan blog for awhile now. She referenced another blog that made Banana Soft Serve, and I got the itch. Mine is a bit different and I can not quite call it raw, but I will call it delicious!
Chocolate Strawberry and Banana Soft Serve
3 frozen bananas
3 frozen strawberries
1 tablespoon of chocolate chips
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Cut the banana and strawberries into small chunks (1 inch). In a food processor, blend the bananas for 3-4 minutes until all the chunks have broken apart. Add the strawberries and chocolate chips and blend until the banana begins to fluff, should take about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla and blend a bit more. Serve and garnish with more chocolate chips or even a strawberry.
