Things I meant to ponder about:
I listened with some amount of... well, astonishment to a story on NPR about the world leaders getting together to discuss the rules of online warfare, and what would constitute "illegal" moves and what would be "legal," and I couldn't help but ponder the radical thought that, perhaps, ALL war was a bad thing and it floors me, as it has always done, that men have these kind of talks...
I stopped at CostCo this afternoon to pick up my prescription and finally broke down and bought myself a pair of the embroidered capris that had been calling me for a while; I usually don't like capris, but these are very cute and they fit REALLY well! Plus, I finally have a pair of nice sandals that actually fit and look nice, so there it is.
Tonight I wanted to make a chicken soup, so I threw 4 frozen chicken thighs into my pot and started the boiling.
Just before dinner, it looked like this:
4 chicken thighs
Lots of water
Dash (or so) of white wine (Pinot Grigio)
2 carrots, diced
1 cup or so of butter beans (large limas)
Several green onions, chopped
Handful of frozen green peas
Onion powder, garlic powder, salt & pepper, all to taste
Boil until chicken comes off bone (shred) and beans are done.
This is how I cook, generally, so asking me for a recipe is always chancy!
