A moment of silence, if you will, for Eudora. I stopped using it years ago, but it sure did hold on for a long time.
So it looks like Heather and I are either both sick, or both suffering from the same allergy. Whichever it is, we were both feeling very under-the-weather this afternoon, so a big pot of chicken soup was called for.
Not that I have much experience in the former; it’s been about 11 years since the last school lunch I ate. However, I think it’s a fair to assume that kids still eat all kinds of crap food on a regular basis; I know I did when I was in school. Heck, I still do today, although on a much more reduced scale.
Just in case you weren’t sure how to go about making salted water, here you go… SALTED WATER FOR BOILING Recipe at Epicurious.com
I just found a new favorite blog of the week, called Kitchen Parade. Excellent, tasty recipes (at least, the most recent 15 seem to be), and nutritional information below most of the recipes. The ones which feature consistent ingredients, that is; things like “leftover soup” (i.e, soup made from leftovers) can’t be calculated. And Points! Each recipe which features nutritional information includes Weight Watcher Point values per serving. That’s awesome, because I’m frequently too lazy to even go to the effort of (divide calories by 50, add 1/14th of the fat grams, subtract 1/5 of the fiber).
So if you’re in the market for a new food blog to read, I think you might enjoy Kitchen Parade. Check it out and subscribe! (although, do yourself a favor, and use the RSS feed instead of the Atom feed; the latter only contains the most recent article)
