*sniffle* [Sep. 20th, 2005|08:45 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

I'm sick, so the whole world seems to be coated in a layer of suck right now.

The J-J meterbridge-tested-and-approved shot-of-bourbon cure didn't seem to do a whole lot for me, so I've moved on to my usual cocktail of tea, ibuprofen, and feeling sorry for myself. I'm feeling dumb (I'm reading A Brief History of Time and steadily understanding less and less), lazy (I'm behind on a lot of things and probably about to disappoint some people), and shiftless (Door To Door hasn't gotten back to me with a quote or a schedule or anything, and my lack of caring knows no bounds).

Via Stone: Open standards save lives, in case you had any doubt. Pam zerbie does, too.

Alcohol is a horrible way to treat any sickness. Ibuprofen also can cause stomach bleeding, so don't take too much, ne?

Rest up and eat lots of protein. Get well, soon!

Silly cerulicante. Maker's Mark and chocolate chip cookies cure everything!

Chocolate chip cookies are all very well in their place, but Dutch cocoa brownies are where it's really at :).

Seriously, feel better. I wish I could send you some of my leftover Percocet.

Beer is the answer!

What was the question?

Actually, I think you need some hot soup.

Re: Beer is the answer!

Hmm. I have all these lentils already cooked -- maybe I could try to make soup out of them.

In a large pot, melt
1/2 cup butter

Chop and sauté until tender:
1 onion
2 sticks celery

1 cup cooked lentils
2 shredded carrots
1 28-oz. can tomatoes (cut up)
1/2 c. whole barley
2 c. water or milk.
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/8 tsp. rosemary
Hot sauce to taste

Bring to a boil, cover and simmer gently for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Re: Lentils!

Oh, perfect! Thanks.

I knew that onions and canned tomatoes would come into play somehow -- already had 'em on my shopping list. Someday I might turn out okay at this cooking stuff.
