Chicken Soup for the Stale

leave a comment »

Yes stale. When I’m feeling fine, I can stay in one corner of my room for days without so much as a blink. But catch me a cold, and I catch cabin fever faster than my nightstand can clutter itself up with my orange juice and soup bowls and all. So my bed’s stale, this room’s gone stale, and it’s all rubbing off on me.

That’s my version of a cold remedy there: Campbell’s canned cream of chicken soup with a can of whole milk; shredded cheese; two generous soup spoons of sour cream; a can of V8 juice; plenty of pepper and a dash of salt. Yum.

Settling down to let it recuperate me to freshness while I watch Lance Armstrong cycle his way down under.

Shades of Green

leave a comment »

 

Well, I asked for something to eat
I’m hungry as a hog
So I get brown rice, seaweed
And a dirty hot dog
I’ve got a hole
Where my stomach disappeared
Then you ask why I don’t live here
Honey, I gotta think you’re really weird.

recipe suggestion by bob

The microwaved shade of green of my palak paneer doesn’t quite match the shade of green shown on the package, does it. This package was sitting on the grocery store shelf so long waiting for me to come along to rescue it, that the pic just faded, maybe?

What shade of green would you call that gunk in my bowl? “Pond Scum Verdant?”

But it’s seriously quite tasty. So much so, I’m thinking seriously of rescuing those other packages of it back at the grocery store and offering to make a special side dish for our Christmas dinner: spaghetti, with tomato sauce on one half and this on the other half.

Best Straight Mac & Cheese

leave a comment »

This is the best straight mac & cheese I’ve ever tasted, no contest. (“Straight” as opposed to the mac & cheese combo dishes like the “adult” mac & cheese dish that TGIF briefly served.)

Except I’m wondering. If the tomatoes help it, then why wouldn’t catsup work just as well?

Grilled Steak

leave a comment »

The grill was cranky this afternoon, so some of these steaks turned out more rare than others, on their own, without my help. With the potatoes Susan baked, dinner for us along with Kelly, Nat & Brandon, and Lindsey (who finished off an entire large steak while everyone else settled for half).

[Note To Self – Do not treat the dogs to leftover steak bits, no matter how much they beg. Or if you do, then at least don’t steam clean the carpet until after the next morning.]

Sticky Guinea Piggies

stick guinea piggies
One of the things Nat will be making for her father tomorrow morning will be sticky buns, and she’s been practicing on us.

I think she needs more practice.

Lots and lots of practice.
