So, a very viable option for some people in this current economic climate is to buy an existing business. If a man or woman has savings, and entrepreneurial spirit, and a desire to begin a career in something that he or she will love, then he or she should buy a business at a low price. I would, personally, love to have the cash to buy a somewhat well-reputed bar/restaurant and inject some youth and enthusiasm into it. I know that starting something from scratch might be putting more of my own “heart and soul” into the actual business, but that does not really matter to me. I don’t care what a business started out like, yes, I would like to preserve some history, but what matters is what I make it into. Right now, I am going to keep my eye open for failing businesses that look to have potential, and when I get my money, you can come in for a drink or some delicious treat that Nick invented.
Salt and Pepper- to taste, we usually add a bit during the sweating of onions/garlic, parmesan cheese adds a lot of saltiness, so be careful.
Parmesan cheese-2 cups
Saffron-roughly .020 oz
In butter and oil, throw in onions and garlic and sweat for about 8 minutes, add mushrooms in at the end of the 8 min. Add some white wine if you like, then add all of the rice and let it absorb flavor for about 4 minutes. During the onion and garlic cooking, heat stock on a different burner and keep at low heat. For the next 40-50 minutes, slowly add stock and let rice absorb it. Keep stirring the entire time and adding small amounts of stock after rice absorbs it. Towards the end, add saffron by dissolving it in a small amount of stock and then adding to the risotto, also, add half of the parmesan cheese and stir in until it is dispersed evenly.
Take off heat and it is ready to serve, the remaining parmesan is for putting on the risotto as you please.
I sometimes(often) feel that groups and people who advocate organic meats and vegetables are doing more to prove Thomas Malthus than anyone else. We have the technology today that can support every person on earth with food, so why advocate organic food that costs so much more to grow and buy and is so much lower-yielding with its crops. Sure, it is great and all for the rich who can afford it, but to push your beliefs using fraudulent data to under-educated people is unacceptable. About 5 years ago, Green Peace advised a poor African nation to not accept millions of dollars worth of food because it was not certified organic and would cause damage to those who ate, guess what, those people didn’t eat at all, they perished. Do not get me or any of my roomates started on the horrible group that is Green Peace.
Today, I finally got something to do that is a little bit interesting. We here at Washington Shoe Company have a problem in A/P, and i got to do a little bit of work to solve the problem. I had to look through our system, find what discrepencies existed and do some research on why they would occur. A neat little project considering the biggest project i worked on before this was me boxing up some kid’s clothing and sending it to a lead/pthalate testing lab and then harrassing them on the phone to get it done. Anyway, after i finish it, i get an email from my boss, the president of the small company, who i sit down and talk to every day, and the email says:
Are all of the Agreements completed?
Update your progress
That is it. This is in regards to an agreement that i had to scan and email to 4 artists, i did this about 4 business days ago, and we are waiting on the return of 2 artists agreements, so it is not a matter of utter importance.
Jason though, Jerry would be fine, but Jason.
