|These are the Coke glasses Eon wanted. :) He was counting how many Coke glasses there were. He picked the blue one out. Then I found another one just like it so we got them both..|
|And, some soup bowls... These are strange, I know. (Is there even a thing such as Oxtail Soup?) I have been in the mood to make (and eat!) soups, lately.. I wanted to make Onion Soup (which I don't even like!)-- but I saw a recipe someone posted on Facebook, which had French bread with cheese on top of the soup... Um. I could eat almost anything if it had French Bread on top of it. ;P But.... My husband said he doesn't like it (and neither does anyone else in our family.) So, I ended up (even though I bought the French bread and chicken stock) not making Onion Soup. But, I wanted these soup bowls to put the Onion soup in (to put the French Bread on top of to broil..) And even though I never made Onion soup and still probably never will, I still wanted these soup bowls. I just like them. I saw them originally (not Oxtail, but others-- Mushroom, Onion, and Chicken) at a pharmacy store. They had even more at the Goodwill. BUT, the ones (brand new) at the store only cost $2.49. They wanted $2.99 for them at Goodwill!! These were only $1.99 each. I still want the other ones. But I might get those at the pharmacy store. They are just fun, and they make me happy. Anyway, here is the Onion Soup recipe I was going to try, if anyone is wondering (and craving it)...|
|This is the soup I ended up making, instead. I had all the ingredients for it. And I wanted something different. I have never made chowder soup. Even though I am lactose intolerant, I still wanted to try it.. Chicken and Corn Chowder. It was so yummy. Especially with French Bread. :D |
I saw a picture at the store yesterday that I wanted to get. It wasn't really a picture. It's just words on a board. What is that? A Meme Plaque? Anyway, it said "The Time To Be Happy Is Now." I just stood there for five minutes, looking at it. Eon probably thought I lost my mind... I didn't end up getting it (I got another picture, a scene in France, with the Eiffel Tower in the background-- it was half off- I will try to take a picture of that, too.) A lot of our pictures got broken glass moving from Nevada to Tennessee. When we were moving here; we just sold them -or gave them to the Goodwill. So I don't have many pictures, and I wanted some.. Now I have one.
I want to find an area to walk in... I went for a walk one day. But it wasn't very nice. I had to walk on the side of the road- and off the road when cars came... A lot of people walk here. I want to find some trails or a park or somewhere nice I can walk. That won't be a big deal getting to... I have started watching Tilly Trout's podcast(s). And I love her already! The one I watched yesterday was episode 26. I could watch this one over and over! She was walking in a common area (love that story) - with wildflowers, and birds. It looks so peaceful! I want to try making some sourdough bread now, too. :) I will have to go back and find episode one and start from there so I can watch them all. Well I think that I've rambled on enough for one day.
