Feb 22 2009

Sunday, what can I say? Sunday is the most depressing day of the week to me. Although I don't have to work, a since of doom permeates the entire day and coats it with a twinge of sadness. Nothing terrible or too depressing, but I lose the since of freedom that I had since Friday afternoon. Most people hunker down with their families, and ride out this desparate day in their homes, as if the land was to suffer a great swarm of locusts or something.

I woke at 6:00 AM, ate breakfast, did some stuff on the computer, fed the dog, then went back to sleep until 2:00 PM. Sundays suck, might as well catch up on some lost sleep. When I re-awoke I read magazines, computed stuff, and began making my Asparagus, Leek, and Potato cremey soup.

Finely chop up a couple Leeks. Fry them at low/medium in butter, with bayleaf, pepper, curry powder and salt/pepper. Add a quart of chicken broth, add chopped potatoes, bring to a boil then simmer for 20 minutes. Check flavor, then add a handful of finely chopped celery, 4 oz butter, and a pound of asparagus cut in 1 inch segments.

Simmer for another 20 minutes until the asparagus is tender.

Add cayenne, and any other flavor that you choose, I put in some thymne and rosemary. Wait a few minutes for the flavors to marry before adding 16 ounces of sour creme and stirring. Wait a few more minutes and add 4 oz of Mexican or Italian blend of cheese. Stir, simmer a few more minutes and serve.

This was great stuff!

Logan came home at 5:00 from snowboarding. He couldn't find a ride so he hitch hiked to the sky slopes. I use to hitch alot when I was his age, and it was an excellent experience.
