I know, the title is a little misleading but I really wanted to share one of my favorite Simpsons Opening Gags. Please enjoy!
Also, My friend Sarah M. Salter is coming to Portland this weekend. I can’t put into words how excited I am about this.
And since Wendy feels that she’s chopped liver (I’m pretty excited she’s going to be here, too) Here’s a video that seems fitting for her.
Tired of the current politics? Check out this hilarious skit from Gabriel Iglesias. This was from 2004 and an example of what would happen if we got to vote for President like we do for American Idol.
I live in Milwaukie, Oregon. I see this guy every day. He’s always on McLoughlin. I’ve been trying to get video of it forever. He’s almost always dancing. Everytime I see it, It makes me smile. So here’s to the guy, dancing to his own beat, who makes my day.
I hope it makes you giggle too.
I saw this as a meme on Facebook and thought it was interesting. Here’s the scoop. You have 15 minutes, if you could only pick 15 albums to listen to on a deserted island, which would you choose. Here are my selections.

With school looming, I’ve been working on some recipes that I could make on the weekend and would be able to either: freeze or would store for the week as lunches and dinners. I’m going to be a busy guy for about 12 week, so I found this recipe on www.pbs.org/everydayfood. Now i”m not one to leave well enough alone, and there were far too many steps to the linked recipe. So I tinkered with it. Here’s what I came up with.
3 Tablespoons butter
1 large onion
1 sprig Fresh Thyme
2 tablespoons flour
1 can chicken stock
1 lb chicken (Boneless/Skinless)
1 cup milk
2 cups frozen peas
Salt & Pepper to taste
In a dutch oven, melt butter over med heat. Chop onions and carrots into med bite sized pieces and sautee until onions become translucent and tender. Add Thyme and flour, stir and cook for 2 minutes. Whisk in chicken stock, making sure you get all the bits and lumps off the bottom. Add Milk, Add chicken which has been cut into bite-sized chunks, cover and cook on medium low heat for 30-45 stirring regularly, add peas in the last 5 minutes of cooking. Add salt & pepper to taste.
Here's what it looked like.
