My Summer At Impact Washington – Bacon Done Right
This week has been incredibly short as the fourth of July stemmed the end of a four day weekend. During this time I prepared and enjoyed cheeseburgers with caramelized onions, bacon, and chives. Personally, I find a strong garlic aioli with lemon and cilantro to be indispensable in most burgers. Furthermore, while caramelized onions are common on burgers, they seldom reach the level of caramelization to be truly savory. The crunch should be all but snuffed out before they are prime for topping.
At Impact Washington, I worked on broad infrastructure changes. Our workflow process is now complete, refined, and documented; for the time being anyway, they tend to be fluid over time. In addition, I identified an error that has been reassigning accounts all over the place. This will be a welcome fix as it has been a serious headache to fix each time it occurred. The process of finding these sorts of errors is arduous and not at all enjoyable, however finding them is rewarded with quite the spike of happiness. Like pulling out a splinter.
Upcoming, I will be facilitating a large update to our Salesforce that will enable us to track surveys alongside account information. This is a Salesforce implementation created by NIST above and looks to be well realized. I’m shaving bits off of and onto our environment to fit their work.
As a final note, I remind that bacon should be cooked on medium to medium-high heat, adding a bit of maple syrup halfway through. This provides prime crispiness while retaining a necessary soft and tender texture. This pertains primarily for sandwiches and burgers. Crunchy bacon is suitable as a pasta or salad topper.
