It's been raining in Chicago for the past decade. OK, not the past decade, only the past 5 years or so it seems. I heard recently that this April may be the cloudiest on record. It's been crazy. It's rained every day for the past week, at least, and will rain again tomorrow. Everything is starting to turn green and flowers are starting to bloom, but all of these clouds and rain are damn depressing.
On top of the rain, it's my week to work late. That means that I am working until at least 6 PM or 7 PM depending on how much of the staff wants to work overtime. Monday and Tuesday, I worked until 6 PM. Tonight, I worked until 7 PM. One of the best things about my late week is that I can accomplish a bit more during the morning before I go to work.
Butternut Tofu Stuffed Shells. I knew I would be working until 6 PM and wouldn't get home until at least 7 PM. The Bulls game started at about 7:10 PM. There was no way that I wanted to be cooking out in the kitchen when the game was on. I love the playoffs and am particularly happy about the Bulls being in them.
