It's one of those days where I had to drag myself out of bed. I'm not feeling great, and snoozing my alarm four times didn't help matters much at all. I'm trying to get this coffee to perk me up now so I can go on about my day with a clear mind. Here's hoping… Continue reading Asian Chicken Noodle Soup
It's the rainy, lazy, napfest days of March. Weather like this makes me not want to do a darn thing. I guess I still need to get ready for work, though... This will probably end up being my last soup/stew/chili recipe of the season. I doubt we make it close to freezing again, and there's… Continue reading Cajun Chili
