Morning Open Thread

I got nothing, and the news coverage is dominated by the shootings in Ft. Hood, and I don’t have anything to add to the speculation there.

I will say this, though- the speed with which Lily picks up anything even remotely edible and begins to chomp on it while I am walking her is frightening, and would lead a casual observer to think she had never been fed once in her life. I’m beginning to understand the term “trashhound.”








Open Thread: Thursday Night Menu Edition

Your weekly soul- and tummy-warmer, thank you Bad Horse’s Filly:

it’s always good to have a soup recipe on hand for when the cold weather returns. And there’s nothing better on a cold night than Creamy Potato Cheese Soup.

On the board tonight:

(1) Cream of Potato Cheese Soup
(2) Orange-Walnut Spinach Salad
(3) Pear and Sour Cherry Crisp

Click the blue text for recipes and shopping list. Mmm, taties & cheez!

Wed. Night Open Thread: FTFY

I really wish Steve Gilliard were here today, because only he could do full justice to both Bloomberg’s victory and Corzine’s failure. And while Mr. Gilliard was, IIRC, no fan of Mayor Bloomberg, he would certainly have had some useful if excoriating advice for those goo-goos who are now shocked, shocked that a rich person could be rewarded by New York City voters for a blatant attempt to buy his way into keeping office.

Also (ergo?), Fuck The Fucking Yankees…
