...I'm obsessed with soup right now. Good thing fall is coming, huh? Pureed corn. French onion. Turkey chili. Chicken noodle. And best of all! Thursdays are Vegetable Beef soup days at the little cafe in my office building. It's the only lunch I look forward to all week! Anyway, at this point in my life, I don't think I could live without soup.
...it's the little things in life that help us get by. I went to the store today and bought a beautiful pomegranate in season. I can't wait to sink my teeth into it.
...it's better to laugh than be embarrassed. A coworker made a double chocolate cake with sprinkles. I took the last piece to my brother. Problem: a torrent of wind picked up the cake and it flew straight up into the air when I stepped into the parking lot. When I swiped it out of the air like a cat, a skinny girl looked at me sideways. I think she was just jealous that she didn't get any cake. All I could do was laugh.
...Iron Chef America is my new favorite show.
...conservatives really need to be graceful post-election and respect the president-elect as an authority no matter what. Everyone wins. We can only hope he will prove himself. Romans 13:1= "Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established." That is all I will say about the election.
...my husband really does love my interpretive dance serenades!
...sometimes I get into these uber productive modes. Tonight I worked, went to the store twice, made dinner and cookies, and cleaned the whole kitchen. JT ate his whole serving of chicken cassoulet: white beans, chicken, turkey kielbasa, garlic, onions, toasted breadcrumbs, and some water and wine cooked out. No pictures because it wasn't pretty. I had to soak and scrub the pan three times because there was a thick crust of white bean paste stuck to the pan. Skark didn't even get to help.
...turkey kielbasa, where have you been all my life? Seriously. Try it sometime. It's in the sausage section. If you aren't calorie conscious, the butcher told me that the German kielbasa is better than the Polish (Polaska). Just FYI!
...I am almost finished with Wicked after nearly three years. During college, I read the first 1/3rd of the book twice but had to put it off because of projects and whatnot, and then I'd pick it up again and have to start from the beginning. It's very worldly content, lots of allusions to politics and religion, but amazing writing! I'm getting excited about seeing the musical when it comes to town this summer!
...gas prices are bomb right now!
...it's almost time for bed!
