When I posted about my black bean fail last week, I promised that I’d come back again today with a picture of the slurry I created when I mistakenly added black beans to a clear broth chicken soup. Here is that picture.
I couldn’t actually capture the true yuckiness of this broth color with my camera, but I think you can tell from this picture that it’s not the right shade of golden broth that should accompany and provide a back drop for a hearty and yummy chicken soup of the home-made variety.
I ask you, doesn’t that look gross? Be honest; would you relish a heaping bowl of this???
Last night I tried again. This time I made hamburger soup that turned out lovely and brown and full of veggies. It was wonderful with a piece of asiago bagel, toasted and buttered. The perfect comfort food for a cold night. That hamburg soup put a smile on this gal’s face.
That’s my new jacket. I found it on sale this past weekend. Unfortunately, it is a size or two too big, but they didn’t have anything small enough to fit better and the price was too good to pass up, so I grabbed it. I was kinda regretting that decision on Sunday when it was feeling baggy and a lil bit frumpy, but hey, with the progress I’m making at losing weight right now (slow, slow, SLOW), I should be able to wear it through the winter without much trouble. Don’t you love how it matches my cabinets and counter top in the kitchen?
