Norman is GONE!

I Just took a trip to our butcher Norman's Meats on Roblin and saw a notice on the door it read Property and contents seized dute to back rent and taxes to the amount of 32000 dollars.

Eek I am sad that they are gone, but the last time I was there I tried to use a coupon for 5% off that we got out of book of savings and they wouldnt honor it because we were buying hamberger and that isnt part of the deal, and they posted a sign on the window stating that fact.

We left feeling a bit hurt that they wouldnt honor the coupon and even more so that we have been shopping there for the last 4 years, and didnt seem to care. and now they are closed...... hmmm did I curse them for giving me a hard time? Do I have hidden super powers? I will have to watch what I say from now on!!!!

Car Day

I was going to go geocaching today when the car wouldnt start with out a boost. This lead me to believe that the battery was toasted by all the boosting I have been doing at work. It was a streassfull morning trying to get colleen to work while every intersection it held the potential of stalling and dying. We got her to work and the car said "Thats it I aint going anywhere with you bub." We had to get a tow to a garrage and $250 later new batter, oil change, and car is running fine. Maybe caching tomorrow?

Curry Carrot Overload Soup

The end of December there was a 2 week break at Fresh Options where we weren't getting vedgies for the week. We ran out of carrots so we picked up a bag and then the didn't stop coming after the Fresh boxes resumed... I don't really care cause it causes me to be creative with vedgies so this is a soup I threw together

Curry Carrot Overload Soup.

The Hardware
Cup Measure
Chef Knife
Large Size pot, Or a wok,,, I make just about everything in a wok
Small Sauce Pan
Box Grater

The Software
14 med sized Carrots
1L of Vedge Stock
3Tbsp of Curry Powder
1Tbsp of Powder Ginger
2C of Milk or Soy Milk substitute.
2Tbsp of Margarine

The Application.
Chop all but 2 carrots into smallish bits and then boil in the vedge stock till soft, pour the the carrots and all into a blender and Puree till smooth, do it in batches if you don't have a bitchen blender like me. Return the mixture to the pot and continue to heat. Grate the 2 left over carrots on a Box grater and add to the pot.

In the small sauce pan add the margarine and let it melt on low heat. When it is liquid add the curry and ginger powder and cook for 2 min, once done add to the carrot mixture.

Now just add the Milk beverage of your choice, bring to heat and serve.

Witty comments comming soon.
