Stuck Forks

Ever find yourself done with something?

Hold the phone here. I'm not done with the blog. I loves my bloggy, yesh I do, yesh I do! I've not written because I haven't been feeling very well, which leaves me not feeling especially funny or wordy. I feel much better today. I feel funny. Feel me. See? Feels funny.

Before I was not feeling too well I'd come to the conclusion that there are a couple aspects to my existence that are over. One held my interest but has run it's course because it stopped having any potential for growth. The other is something I'd abandoned long ago but had left the door open to because I thought I might want to return. Now I'm done. Just....done.

Wait, the previous paragraph isn't funny. God, you better feel me again. Just trim your nails this time Raggedy Anne.

I'm finding this process fascinating. That's why I didn't mention the subjects in which I'm done. Ultimately those are neither here nor there. Closing doors opens other doors. Some of those doors open into rooms that smell like vegetable soup or public restrooms. Some of these doors open to rooms that smell like pumpkin pie. Just trying to figure out which doors to put on my plate is awesome.

In a way this goes along with my husband's dietary lifestyle change. We are eating quite a lot of vegetables, only some of which have been made into soup, and twenty of his pounds have snuck off. They probably found life more pleasant behind the public restroom door. Don't let the door hit ya in the ass on the way out.

So...what's next? I dunno yet...and that's wonderful.

  5. I am glad u still like your "bloggy," and thats not one of the doors that u are closing.

    Since u meantion pumpkin here is a pumpkin soup recipe in case u want to try it:
    INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)
    3 tablespoons margarine, softened
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    4 slices whole wheat bread
    1 cup chopped onion
    2 tablespoons butter, melted
    2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
    1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 cup heavy whipping cream


    DIRECTIONS
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F(200 degrees C). Combine butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Spread butter mixture evenly over one side of each bread slice. Place bread, buttered side up, on a baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until bread is crisp and topping is bubbly. Cut each slice of bread into 8 small triangles or squares.
    Saute onion in butter in a medium saucepan until tender. Add 1 can chicken broth; stir well. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.
    Transfer broth mixture into the container of a blender or processor. Process until smooth.
    Return mixture to saucepan. Add remaining can of broth, pumpkin, salt, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, and ground pepper; stir well. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally..
    Stir in whipping cream and heat through. Do not boil. Ladle into individual soup bowls. Top each serving with Cinnamon Croutons.

    Dont let a pumpkin hit ya in the ass. Those things (the pumpkin not your tushie, i have to specify huh) are big and might hurt.
