7QT (vol. 16)

Yesterday, I posted a recipe for the scrumptious slow cookered lemon chicken, and mentioned my plan to make extra juice for the next batch.  Well, I couldn't wait for the next batch, so I quadrupled the recipe and made a little soupy concoction out of the leftovers.  'Twas terrific.  Unfortunately, though, it didn't last long enough for a picture.
Call me crazy, but I've been smelling snow these past few days.  I'm not happy about the fact this is happening already.  I'm not ready for summer to be over yet.
As it turns out, one of the hens my mother acquired earlier this year (against my wishes, I add) is not a hen...  Every single morning, as soon as he sees a light go on in the house, no matter what ungodly hour in the morning it might be, he starts trying to crow at the top of his lungs.  This is exceedingly unpleasant, since he hasn't figured out how to crow properly as of yet, so he sounds more like a mule in labor, and because my mother gets up at 4 every morning for work.  I'm starting to have a taste for chicken soup.

College textbooks for Fall 2013, check!  Although, I'm still unhappy they cost so darn much.
Quote of the week, courtesy of Stephen King - “Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”
This week's song is Afraid by Lana del Rey, who, as I have stated previously, is a goddess among the musical.

  1. Nice blog post! Yes, I'm not ready for summer to end either. Wish I had some chickens..

    Cool song too!

  2. Definitely not ready for winter... but possibly autumn at this point. I'm anxious for the humidity to be gone and I've heard that VA autumns are gorgeous. But winter? No. I still want sunshine and warmth.


Comments from my readers are like my little dose of sunshine, and they make me feel like a kid on Christmas morning.... Beautiful & Exciting. But please remember that "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." ;)
