  • Swaps: So is this Thai place a sit down place or take out?
  • Armalis: It can be either.
  • Swaps: I ask only because if we sit down I'll change out of my shorts into real people pants.
  • Armalis: Fuck pants. We'll do takeout.
  • Swaps: This is why we get along so well.

Swaps. Stop looking at the big picture. Break it into pieces. Work on one thing at a time. Not twelve things at once. 

Do it one step at a time and it gets done. Try and do it all at once and nothing gets done. And you get a little mental. 

You should also take a second to appreciate how adorable your dog and cat are right now.

*hands over a cuppa tea* I got about 3 hours last night (but I’m a professional insomniac). We can be cranky and tired together on tumblr today! btw what type of soup are you making in the crockpot?

Somehow missed this earlier!  Sorry!  

Oh man … TEA!  *sighs*  Already gone through one Starbucks Chai … may have to get another at lunch!

I am starting the season (trust me, soups/stews are a SEASON in my house! Kiddo got all excited last night when I bought the chicken for today’s.  ”YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!” *several fist pumps into the air*  ”It’s SOUP TIME!  I LOVE this time of year!”

Today’s soup - homemade chicken noodle.  I cheated though - I didn’t want to mess with a whole chicken when I got home, so I bought a package of split chicken breasts.  I put that, some carrots, celery and onion and some oregano, basil and bay leaves into the crockpot and covered it with water.  I’ll have to add bouillon later, but that’s okay.  I’ll also add those smaller pasta shells (kiddo likes the shells over bow ties, no clue why) when I get home then check for salt/pepper.  Very basic, very easy.  It will probably last us two days … unless kiddo’s suffering from ‘hollow leg syndrome’ - (read: he thinks he’s starving to death! lol)  But with the cool temps and stuff, I am changing up my seasonal recipes! :)  

I love homemade soup, and that sounds really good :)

For homemade chicken soup where I haven’t roasted a chicken the night before I usually start with a store bought rotisserie chicken.   I discard the skin since it’s usually overly salted and seasoned more than my liking and use the bones, drumsticks & wings for stock (made in the crockpot of course, either over night or during the day) and reserved the rest of the meat for the soup.

My recipe for chicken soup is really easy.  I toss the stock in a pot on the stove and adjust seasoning then simmer carrots and celery for about 10 minutes, toss in the egg noodles till cooked then right when it’s done toss in the reserved chicken meat to warm through.

Seems several of us think alike!

I definitely skip the first fifteen minutes of Up. 

I cannot handle that level of emotional devastation.

Soulmates aren’t the ones who make you happiest, no. They’re instead the ones who make you feel the most. Burning edges and scars and stars. Old pains and pangs, captivation and beauty. Strain and shadows and worry and yearning. Sweetness and madness and dreamlike surrender. They hurl you into the abyss. They taste like hope.
