Missing My Job

I worked in property management for Equity Residential for almost 5 years when I was laid off on December 1st. Equity sold the property to a new company that brought in their own team. As a leasing consultant I set my sights on this particular property and knew I wanted to be the assistant manager there. I eventually got my chance for that and only left Lenox to be promoted to property manager at a smaller property. I eventually worked my way back to Lenox where I was the property manager for a little over a year. I really loved my co-workers and I really loved my residents. I had was right where I wanted to be, the property manager at the property I had my eye on 5 years prior as a leasing consultant. As it was, I was sad to go, I was sad to hand it all over to people that might not care as much as we did.

Since we left 2 months ago, there have been 7 negative comments left on apartmentratings.com, bringing the "recommended by" percentage from 73 to 46 in just 60 days. It makes me so sad to think that my residents are stuck in leases where they no longer enjoy living. Every now and then I get to run into one of them at Kroger and it's a happy moment for all parties involved. Who doesn't love to make a scene in the grocery aisle?

Pecan-Crusted Tilapia

2 tbsp canola oil
1 lbs tilapia fillets
salt and pepper
1/2 cup flour
1 egg beaten with a splash of milk or water
1 cup bread crumbs
1 cup pecans, finely chopped (food processor is probably your best bet)
1/4 tsp nutmeg

We fixed this with orzo and steam-in-a-bag green beans.

Heat the oil in a skillet just past medium heat. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Place flour in one dish, egg mixture in a second, and in the third combine bread crumbs, pecans and nutmeg. Coat fish in flour, then egg, then bread crumb mixture. Cook about 4 minutes on each side and drain on paper towels.
