Poke is currently popular in urban areas these days. No idea why.
Anyway since most of the household doesn’t do great with rice, I cobbled together a variation on the poke theme that doesn’t involve ordering it from a poke hut.
Take 1-2lbs (depending on your seasoning preference) of thawed ahi steaks and cube them. Mix with 1 tsp salt (I used Himalayan pink because we get it in bulk for mysterious reasons), 1 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp lemon juice and 1/4 cup sesame oil. Serve over any amount of steamed vegetables.
It’s not “real” poke, but it tastes close enough and it works when you don’t want to stand over a hot stove skillet cooking anything because you baked a mountain of cookies for three elementary classes.
I’m an uneducated housewife. However, I’m working on PhD-level work (at least, nobody without one appears to be doing what I’m doing, ‘cept me), so there is a small chance I will end up with one anyway.
It’s pretty clear I’ve been struggling quite a bit because I didn’t want to admit the situation was what it was. It’s hard to accept I might have to work with people whose entire lives are devoted to views and practices regarding education that have directly made my life incredibly difficult and made educating my own children a home-based project, but I’m probably not going to be able to stay on schedule without accepting that it may be what I have to do to complete the mission.
So this is acceptance. Also, about the only detailed public comment I’m making about Project Y’ this year and maybe next.
