WOW! Last week I was really, really sick. In fact, I would say that I am just now getting above the 80% range. I caught some weird sort of flu bug or something. It felt like food poisoning, but I hadn't gone out and wife was not sick from eating the same food (at home). Oh well, the important thing is that I am on the mend and back to posting some tasty pics.
The pasta dish is from early last week. I made some crab and red bell pepper alfredo. It sounds really heavy and rich but actually was on the lighter side. The soup picture is what I made last night, I had a ton of veg knocking around the fridge and needed an easy way to use all of it. I used some onions, leeks, celery, carrots, celery root, potatoes, pablano peppers, orange and red bell peppers, anaheim peppers, collard greens, and green beans. the broth was a veg stock/tomato juice combo. It turned out really well. Probably very vitamintastic! The last photo was just me peeling a bunch of apples. I made some apple cinnamon muffins for amy to take to a work party. I am still tweaking the recipe a little, but once I finish it, I will be sure to post ( I think I need to cut back on the apples).
other newsworthy newsage: I made up a word last night. We were visiting with my brother and sister-in-law, talking about falling asleep in cars. I was talking about how when I am in a car and it hits the interstate I fall asleep, when this gem of a word came out of my mouth: "carcolepsy"- a sudden, coma-like affliction of sleep, induced by riding in an automobile. Don't steal it! Use it, by all means, but it's mine...I think.
