Question - is there such a thing as Brussels Sprouts soup?

Diocletian's Last Cabbage: Question - is there such a thing as Brussels Sprouts soup?


Immediately thought A) NO!
and B) Ruhlman's Cream of Anything soup, simmer 1 cup of anything, in this case Brussels sprouts in 1 cup of broth or water.  Add 1 cup dairy and a slurry of 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, blend and/or strain if desired.

That actually sounds good, gonna have to try it.

If it turns out good, will have to patent recipe.  I'll cut you in for 60%.

ProcrastinationStation: I still like the name Flat Akvavit  :)

Y'all, I think its Caturday MAGIC that the anniversary of the Alien Tour happens right as RWDA is recovering from her own cancer battles.

What better encouragement to recover than seeing the fun that Caturday can put together?
We've (well *you*, I wasn't active then) have done it once.... who's to day we can't do it again?

Akvavit across the country mabye?


Actually, I *am* planning on traveling and seeing and doing and finding new, interesting places to drink coffee and chill (and talk to people I do not know and ask them "but why?" with an open heart and mind, as I tend to do) I am going to attempt to visit some of the places Flatvavit has been. She's forward recon, a term I use to make our  ex-military types happy cuz that tells them I do pay attention. :-)

When I am well enough to hit the road and just GO, I'll start with short trips, close to home. As I improve and my financial situation starts to get better, but hopefully before I have any recurrence of my cancer (if I am indeed declared NED/remission), I will make it further away and for longer periods of time.

The reality is that even if I am NED (no evidence of disease) by summer, my lifespan has most likely been dramatically shortened. For this reason I am not entirely sure it is worth my time to go back to working two jobs - I am pretty sure it is NOT - when there is still so much to go and see and experience. I'll be working one job, perhaps even only part time (OMGs! that is a hell of a  change for me!) and focusing my energy and my time on having those experiences.

I may also figure out how to throw something online so everyone can come with me. I know nothing about blogs or websites and whatnot, but I do know it's more fun to have adventures if you can share them with others!

Would I make a good travel writer? No. Could I make a halfway decent experience writer? You betcha! So let's go have some experiences and whatnot while we can! At least that's my thinking at this point in time.

Time really is our most precious  resource. Mine has been undervalued for decades. I  refuse to undervalue my remaining time, no matter how long it may be. It is MINE, I get to use it however I please - so I will. :-)

As long as you don't try to give me 60% of the soup.  Mom kinda ruined the idea of even trying them by frequently cooking them in vinegar, not a scent I found appetizing at all!  I am not certain I have the slurry right, might be a teaspoon or a tablespoon per two cups of cooked soup.  Too much cornstarch, it will be pudding, not enough will be too thin to be a good cream of soup.

Obviously, taste and adjust until delicious.

edmo: Good news/bad news for Henna the foster cat.

The good news is she left for her "forever" home on Wednesday. Seemed like a nice couple although I had some sense it was more her idea.

The bad news: less than 24 hours later, we had Henna back. Apparently she was "stalking" the husband and did not like him. She got along fine with the other cat who was adopted from the same shelter just a few weeks back. I don't know, I wasn't there, but this is one of the nicest cats I have ever met in 50+ years of being around kitties. It's hard to imagine.

That said, we once had a cat that was an excellent judge of character and made his opinion known of a few people.

She was a little subdued when we got home so we kept a close eye on her. She seems fine.

She's gonna be a great companion for some nice woman who likes having a cat nearby at all times, preferably on the lap or right next to her.

Meanwhile, we get her for a while longer.

Poor Henna! I'm sorry things didn't work out for her, but I'm glad you guys got her back so swiftly. Whatever upset was going on there  was extremely limited and that's always good. ♥

bobug: Life should not be a journey to the grave, with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "WOW! What a ride!" - Hunter S. Thompson

Chica: I'd like you to acknowledge this, and think about your words the next time you're all "Any time you feel like NOT doing that, I'm ok." Or "Hey, if you want to stay back from the bears, that's GOOD with me."
Mr. Bobug is a killjoy!


YOU, each and every one of you, get to do as you please. *I* simply refuse to do some things cuz they are scary. If you want to look over the side, do so - and then you can tell me what's down there. I'll tell you what I saw over *there* that you didn't even notice in return.

Many different perspectives make things more interesting. At least to me. :-)

groppet: Ok I need to go home the Karen in garnishment has tripled up on the Karen today and she isn't even here.
[Fark user image 580x725]


I don't know how some of you do it. I cannot work in office environments. I simply cannot. I like being able to "check the back" when someone is being difficult and then simply not return. Good luck finding me back there. I actually fit inside some of those back stock cubbies.  Guess how I know this?

You can't do that in an office, because they assign you somewhere you are  supposed to be, like all the time. Then you have to ....sit there. Sit and stay still. There is probably work involved as well, as if sitting and staying still and dealing with Karen's BS isn't work enough. *ugh* NO THANK  YOU.

Doesn't your Karen have some vacation time coming up or something? She could use a break. Doesn't it  seem like she could use a break?
