Potato Bacon Soup -Disaster?

I made today didn't go as planned.

I had changed a few details to the recipe I found, but that wasn't the biggest issue. The trouble was the cooking times the recipe gave. It said cook one hour on high then another hour low till the potatoes are tender.

What I've learned today is that potatoes take longer than two hours in a crock pot (even if one hour was on high). My soup was suppose to be done for 1pm for a group meal. I enjoyed a bowl alone (the picture is the actual bowl I had) around 5:30pm. It was good, but I'll make a few more changes to the recipe next time. This is what was in it this time:
  • Four new potatoes chopped into bit size pieces(I used two red and two white)*
  • Two carrots chopped up *
  • Eight strips of crisp bacon *
  • 3 cups of milk (I used 1%)
When potatoes are tender add:
  • chopped up green onion *
  • a package of herb and butter mushed potato mix (add to thicken to amount you find enjoyable)

The time was off. I'll share that after the second attempt...if there is a second attempt.

*Indicated changes to the original recipe.

"Milestone" -Sunday Scribblings

Sunday Scribblings is celebrating their 200th prompt! Yay! I've always liked the site and think this would be a good time to return to inspired writing (the last time I participated in a Sunday Scribbling was April 2008).

If this is new to you, this is how it works: mid-week an idea or subject is posted on Sunday Scribblings blog, you write blog post inspired by the given theme, after posting you share what you wrote with a link on the original site.

I still want to edit and finish my nanowrimo novel "Across Eldamar." I am having trouble sorting out some of the details and fixing plot wholes in the first draft. For the next while I am going to use the writing propmt to focus on the characters, world, or history of Eldmar (any of which may or may not end up in the final draft). This is my first piece:

An Abby and Across Eldamar Story
Exhaustion did not begin to communicate the fatigue Abigail was experiencing. With each step she took her feet, legs, and joints seemed to scream in agony. The simple act of lifting one foot to place it in front of the other required her to pool all her energy and willpower. With each movement she became weaker. After every fourth step she needed to stop and catch her breath while mentally preparing for the next four steps.

It had been like that for the past four days. Abigail was beyond tired. She had been walking from sun up till sun down stopping only to eat or sleep. She had kept going in hopes that she would reach Elvenhold by dusk but each night darkness came with no indication she was any closer to the city.

The hill she climbed now seemed endless. Despair was setting in enticing her to quit. She wasn't a pilgrim; she wasn’t even a hiker or athletic for that matter. This wasn't her journey. This wasn't even her world. She had been given a mission and answers to find but what did it matter to her if she didn’t completed this quest? It was these thoughts that convinced her to rest when she saw the giant granite slab not far ahead. Abigail hobbled over to the rock and unloaded the burden from her back. Then collapsed, leaning against the stone where she drifted off to sleep.

When Abigail woke hours later it was late afternoon. Hungry she found food in her pack. She observed the country side while she nibbled at the dry bread and cheese. This world was beautiful but it was the first time she had really noticed. It was like a forgotten Eden. While trudging along she missed the beauty because she was to focus on her pain. The forest and mountains were breath taking. It was hard to believe she had walked so far. It was then she noticed the rock she had been leaning against. It seemed under the years of plant growth hid some message etched out in the stone.

She rubbed away the moss that had grown over the weather worn carvings. She could read the strange Elven runes thanks to the magical amulet her great grandmother had given her. The stone said "A Mile to Elvenhold." A mile? Only a mile to Elvenhold, her destination? She could walk another mile. One mile that would end her journey. She could even be there with in the half hour if she started now. She rose to her feet with renewed energy.Gently returning her pack to her shoulders she was ready. Moments later she was on the path again, walking away from the milestone and on to Elvenhold, where her many questions should be answered.

Last Day of January

There are days it feels like changing habits is a journey of two steps forward and three steps back. I started 2010 full of joy and hope eager to bring new focus to different areas of my life. Isn't that why we accept crazy changes, the hope of change.

The third week was more of a struggle. I was discouraged and there didn't seem time to keep my new routines going. One missed day lead to another missed day. I still feel discouraged. Things I wanted to do I kept putting off because "there is always tomorrow." Tomorrow is February and they're still not done. I feel tired and discouraged. I feel like I am walking backwards. Changing life habits is hard. Adding new things, even good things is hard. It means cutting other stuff out of my life, some times the things that go are even good things. I can't knit and read at the same time. I can't cook and visit friends at the same time.

January wasn't a total write off, even in my discouragement there were joys and success. I read less than I wanted but I still got some books read (or listened to). Last week I made my own "natural" cleaning supplies. I joined a writing group who I think will encourage me to edit and finish my novel. And from my routine changing it seems making my bed and eating breakfast has become a daily habits. February I am going to be focusing on what I eat and adding exercises to my life.

Soup (and games) Sunday

Long time back, Kim and Brent shared about their last church's "Soup Sundays." Once a month people would bring in crock pots of soup and after church people would gather and chat over a lunch of soups. For clean up a sink was filled with dish soap and hot water and everyone was expected to wash up their own dishes. It sounds like a great way for people to connect. The topic of having a Soup Sunday at New Hope (my church) has often come up, mostly while we're playing games, with the added idea of hosting a family games day after the meal.

Tomorrow after church we are having our first "Soup Sunday." Lunch will be about 12:30pm and then people can stay to play games. Looking forward to the games, even the soup -I like soup, BUT I forgot that Soup Sunday was this week. I haven't done things I need to do to be ready. The biggest issue right now is I need to bring a soup. There is nothing in my house that could be thrown together to make soup. I've done what every other person who has never used a crock pot -I googled possible recipes. I've found one that looks easy. It is called "Easy Potato Soup." I think I am going to make a few modifications. As soon as this is posted I am off to the grocery store to pick up the nessessary ingedients. I'll let you know how the cooking goes.

Farewell Dollhouse

Tonight Fox (US) and Global (Canada) aired the last episode of "Dollhouse" title "Epitaph Two: Return." If you missed it Global should have it posted on their site sometime next week (not sure of a US viewing option but that's what google is for). If you haven't watch the series the show will be meaningless, if you have it is a bittersweet farewell giving fans one last chance to see the possible future and say good-bye. I think of it as an epilogue to wrap things up after "The Hollow Man's" more finale style ending. I am still reeling from the shock the surprises and deaths of the last few episodes. I should know that Whedon never gives everyone a happy ending, one or more of my favourite characters will die. I should have learned this by now and yet I am still surprised.

What I liked in "Epitaph Two" was the interaction between Topher and Adelle. I've always liked them and their overall charcter arch. Watching them reminded me of a favourite episode in which Adelle allows Topher to program a doll for a friend on his birthday. I also like how the tech and war had affected Sierra/Priya and Victor/Tony's relationship and how this episode brought renewed closure. I thought the appearance of Alpha was odd, nice to have him along, but odd.

What I will miss the most is seeing favourite actors from other shows on Dollhouse: Tahmoh Penikett from Battlestar as Ballard, Alan Tudyk from Firefly as Alpha, and Summer Glau from Firefly as Bennett. It's hard only seeing them as guests on CSI (or similar shows).

Back to the episode, it was good but made me sad in parts. I felt the most for Adelle and Echo. They seemed to have the worst ending...going on alone. I am curious about how Alpha will turn out in the new world. I almost wanted him and Echo to get together. I think it was he who left Echo the gift on the chair. Questions I am left with are what happened to Whiskey (who was clearly still around at the end of Epitaph One) and Dominic (who was sent back to "the attic" in "The Hollow Man")? The lack of Whiskey really bugs me. Other than that I thought it was a good and very Joss Whedon ending. I'm looking forward to his next project…I hope there is a next project.

Knitting Woes:

A friend has commissioned me make these "Felt Clogs." It is suppose to be fast easy. I like the pattern but it's been a slow beginning. After four starts I just finished the first seven rows. And now I'm confused. This is my cry for any knitters help. I've been working back and forth and now it's suppose to go to round. So how I can turn at the end of the first row? I don't get it.

Row 7: Knit. This completes the sole.
Begin Upper Part of Clogs: Change to upper color for 2-color clogs. Knit 1 row and mark as right side (RS). Do not turn.
Join Into the Round: Bring the beginning of the last row up onto the point of left needle, place a marker on needle and knit one compete round, joining work at heel in the process.
Toe and Instep Shaping:
Row 1: k42,m1,k1 (center toe st), m1,k1,turn.
Row 2: Slip 1, p4, turn

Conversations with Kids

On Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays I try to take my break at or close to 2pm so that I can meet my friend during her break. She works at the bank (and her break isn't always at the same time). When I time it right we walk to Tims, have tea, chat, and walk back before her 15 minutes are up. Successful encounters are the highlight of my day.

Today was one of those days that the timing worked out. As we were about to leave the bank a mom and her daughter connected with my church came in. The little girl, almost three years old, ran over to me yelling “Pat-tor LIZZ, Pat-or LIZZ!” I got down on one knee so we were at eye level, after a greeting this was the conversation:

Girl: “Pat-or LIZZ, do you work at the church?”
Me: “Yes, I do.”
Girl: “Were you at the church today?”
Me: “Yes, I was and am going back soon.”

Then with the cutest expression with her little fists curled right under her chin and eyes opened extra wide she asked, “Pas-or LIZZ, do you live at the church?”

I smiled and said "No" but on the inside I laughed because some people think I do, like family and friends who call the church before trying to reach me at home and actually reach me (even at strange non-office hours).

Choose Your Own Adventure

Do you remember those books? You didn’t read them cover to cover. After a page or two of action you, the reader, had a chance to make a critical decision that would affect the course of the story. I loved them. Till I was eight-ish and read one that disappointed me. I didn’t feel the writer matched the results with the given options. It might also have been that two different options lead my character to the same conclusion, and that bothered me.

That was the last one I read till last week. Jon Acuff, author of Stuff Christians Liked turned his blog into a Christian Romance Choose Your Own Adventure. With starting choices like “some sort of orc or other mythological creature walks into town for an epic battle” who wouldn't love it. I only read a few options but it was fun, which is why am I am sharing it and because “Christians like Christian Romance Novels”.

Amy @ *Lavendar Sparkles* had a Simple Woman's Daybook post two weeks. I liked it so I'm adding it to my weekly blogging, this is my second try. You can find the more daybooks at Simple Woman's Daybook.

January 25, 2010

Outside my window...darkness and wet with the odd car passing by (I’m at a coffee shop)

From the kitchen...I’ve been living on yogurt, eggs, invitations for meals with friends and restaurants the last three week but today I bought a cookbook. We’ll see where that goes.

I am your first meal of the day “breakfast” if it’s 1:00 pm when you eat but you didn’t get out of bed before noon and you choose traditional breakfast foods?

I am thankful for...sleep in days like today.

I am wearing...jeans, a white tank with a purple printed shirt I don't care for, black boots, the same grey and white striped hat from last week.

I am creating...felted slippers woman's size eight -still because I've restarted four times.

I am going...home soon.

I am reading...Free-range knitter, What the Psychic Told the Pilgrim, The Hormone Diet, Jane Eyre, R is for Ricochet, Julie and Julia, and Stuart Little, Simply Strategic Volunteers, and the One Year Bible (yes it's a lot but I read just a little of each every day)

I am eat healthy this week.

I am house chatter of the post writing group friends. And I'm listening to CD 9 the book on tape "Grimpow."

Around the house...bigger piles of things that need to be washed

One of my favourite things...Just Us large spicy hot chocolate.

A few plans for the rest of the week: return library books, hang paper lanterns, clean my home, and starting to do some type of work out exercise thing

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...I will add tomorrow when I’m on my computer…tomorrow

The Gift ~ My Joy

Sunday’s are a madhouse of activity for me. Before and after the service there seems to be no end to the parents, volunteers, children, and friends telling me things, asking things of me, or reminding me things that need to be done during the week. The “to do” list seems long and the week ahead of me is set. But Tuesday, when I get into the office ready to work, I’ve forgotten all the stuff I needed to do. It’s true the mental to do list has disappeared completely and I struggle the rest of the week to try remember the things I said I would do. Sunday comes again and I remember the items that had needed to be done, the calls that should have been made, or the emails I wanted to seed –but didn’t.

Last Sunday, I was talking about this vicious cycle with a good friend. She recommended that I carry a clipboard with me on Sundays. I smiled and told I had for a while and it had even worked…till it had walked off. She then recommended I get a “pretty one.” I smiled again, thanked her for the suggestion, and mentally filed it away as something to do later.

This Sunday the same friend approached me during my pre-service preparations. “Here Liz,” she said as she shoved something into my hands. It was a beautiful clipboard and note pad. She had remembered when I had forgotten. I used the gift the rest of the morning making notes of people to contact this week and questions to take care of. There is a to do list on my desk waiting for Tuesday and me.

Rate the Fun: Carcassonne

Shortly after first playing Settlers of Catan I was introduced to Carcassonne, named after a city in southern France know for its medieval stone walls. This tile-laying game won the Spiel des Jahres award in 2001. It is design for 2-5 players; I personally enjoy playing with three players. The game components are 72 tiles and 8 wooden followers for each player. Fans have nicknamed the wooden people as "meeples" short for maple people."

The game consists with placing randomly selected tiles to create the map of "Carcassonne". The tiles have an assortment features: roads, cities, cloisters, and fields. When a tile is laid it must fit with the features on all surround/touching tiles. After placing a tile player may station a follower on one feature of the just-placed tile. This claims the feature, like a city, for that player. When the city is completed the follower earns points for the player who placed the follower (even if someone else laid the finial city tile).

There have been a number of expansions released that enhance and add to the strategy and play. I've played with Inn & Cathedrals, The River and the River II.

The Score:
Carcassonne = 5.9

The Rate the Fun Scale:

10 = Outstandingly Awesome Game; Always want to play it and I expect this will never change.
9 = Excellent Game; Always want to play it.
8 = Very good game; I like to play. Probably I'll suggest it and I'll never turn down a game.
7 = Good game; Usually willing to play.
6 = Okay game; There is some element of fun or challenge; will play sporadically if in the right mood.
5 = Fair game; Slightly boring, take it or leave it.
4 =Not so good; It doesn't get me but I could be talked into it on occasion.
3 = Bad; Likely won't play this again but could be convinced.
2 = Extremely annoying game; Won't play this ever again.
1 = Clearly broken; You won't catch me dead playing this.

The snow earlier this month

Want Vs. Need

I didn't want to go tonight; I get like that sometimes where I just don't want to go to something I must attend. I wanted to be home tonight reading a book, or having a cup of tea, or taking a nap, or a bath, or some wonderful combination of all the above. I did not want to be out at Rally in the Valley (a monthly interdenominational youth worship service).

This wasn't first time I haven't "wanted to go". It started in college, normally on a Wednesday after supper about an hour before my weekly girls' discipleship/Bible study group (D-group) I would be overwhelmed with rebellious anti-event feelings. I just wouldn't want to go; the same feeling I had this afternoon. Sometimes the feelings would come before a chapel service, or even the day before D-group. I would not want to go…but I would go because I felt I needed to go and I hated filling in bad worship attendance forms. So I went somewhat grudgingly but went I did.

Here's the thing, the stronger I didn't want to go the better the event was. When I most felt like skipping were the times the most good happened, (almost like someone or something didn't want receive the good). It was those services or events that hurts were healed, spiritual steps were taken, growth happened, commitments were made. I even remember thinking more than once as I walked back to my dorm "wow, I am so glad I hadn't listened to my feelings and skipped ________ (whatever event/thing I hadn't wanted to go to)."

Tonight was no different. Tonight good happened. Earlier this week I was asked if I would pray for Haiti and the offering that was taken up. The organizers (I'm part of the group that plans these events. Another reason I needed to go) had agreed that all of the offering would go to help with earthquake relief. The prayer time was the closest I've felt to the heart of God in awhile (been in a season of silence) it felt good and connect and like choices I had made this week were lined up with God's will even though that wasn't what I was praying about. And I felt connected to God's people…cool, eh? Not only that, the group gave $450 (Canadian) to help Haiti. That is more than double what our offering normally is.

I didn't want to go tonight…but going is what I needed.

Movie Stats, New Things, and a Finale

I've recently fallen in love with Stars Hollow. I didn't watch Gilmore Girls when it was on the air; but have been borrowing the seasons from my local library. I love the show! Just Christmas I watched the seventh season but stopped just before the final two episodes (dvds had to go back the the library). The last thing I saw Logan was asking permission to marry Rory.

I've been dying to know what happens. Tonight my friend Tabby and I are getting together (+her husband) for supper and to watch the last episodes. It's bittersweet. I love to watch the show with a friend BUT...I hate for the story to end of knowing there will be no more funny Kirkisms, crazy antics of Taylor or odd pop culture references. But with an end comes some new beginnings. Theese are a few of the new things I've found this month:

  1. A thinking game: Rubik Round Up I can solve it in 130 seconds.
  2. A new book: I've started the read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë in the 1800s not "new" but it is my first time reading it.
  3. A new sight: Stuff Christians Like I can't stop laughing.
  4. A new project: Felted Slippers which a friend has commissioned me to make. I have had a slight set back. My test square was off (it 9s to 4" but was 14s to 4"). I need larger needles. Once I have share more.

I've already shared 2009 book stats here are the movie stats:

Movies Watched:
2009 -90 movies
2008 -104 movies

Animated Movies:
2009 -15 movies
2008 16 movies

2009 Stats:
Highest Viewing Month – December: 19 movies (7 were with my sister a.k.a. Barbie movies or similar to that, 5 were Christmas special, 3 were with family at theatres, and 2 on the plane)
Lowest Viewing Month –November: 2 movies thanks to nanowrimo.

2010 Movie Goals:
Only to watch to 84 movies = 7 movies a month

L is for Love, Lifestyle, Letters & 2010

When setting goals for 2009 I was over ambitious. It was crazy all the things I wanted to accomplish in a year. There were 27 goals divided into six categories (Connecting, Community, Creativity, Correspondence, Challenges, and Commitment). I called it the year of the letter "C". It was a 98% failure or to go with the "C" theme -a Complete Catastrophe. It didn't take long for my weakly executed plans to be forgotten. The only successes were participation in Nanowrio and making Christmas presents.

This year is going to be different. I believe I have learned from my mistakes and have set more achievable goals with tangible ways to reach them. I've also put all my hopes into three categories: love, lifestyle, and letters. It's the year of the letter "L" (no connect at all to a show with a similar yet different title). This is what 2010 is about for me:

Love –Love God: seeking to express love to and for God as fully as I can
–Love Others: seeking community with church, friends, my family, missionaries, and those in need or forgotten by society

Lifestyle –seeking to better myself with healthy habits, creative outlets (writing, drawing, & knitting), a variety of reading goals, projects for my nest, and clean/tidy home using a 9x90 method (if it works I'll evaluation at the end of March).

Letters –ending letters, cards, and emails weekly

Sushi, Birthday Wishes, & the First Ten Days

1) Ten days into 2010 and I've been keeping most of my goals. Maybe "most" is stretching it but I have had some ongoing success, like eating breakfast every morning. The breakfast is wonderful. As a kid it was my least favourite meal (I hated eggs which didn't help) but now I love it. My eating patterns the past few years have been horrible. I was only eating a meal or two a day and often not before 1pm. I wanted to change so during Christmas break started eating breakfast every morning. The trend has continued consecutively the past 21 days. This is the best I've ever done with keeping a new tradition. I'll post more about my goals tomorrow.

2) The dessert sushi was a success. They turned out better than I expected. I couldn't get all the items from the recipe I was looking and I was worried that the different types of candy wouldn't go together but they did. In fact they were very yummy.

The "sushi" was made with mini powder donuts for the rice, sweetish fish for raw fish, jelly beans for row, fruit by the foot for the thin seaweed wraps, and icing to make sure everything stayed. I also cut up white gummy bears for ginger and a green apple candy for wasabi.

3) It's my Mom's birthday. I can't be with her right now but I love her dearly. She is the bestest! I hope for her a wonderful year full of joy and God's blessings.

Happy Birthday Mummy!

On A Mission

Tasha and I are about to embark on an afternoon adventure. We are attempting to make dessert sushi so I can bring it to an Asian themed birthday party later tonight. We've found a recipe and made a shopping list. We're off to shop, then later make…I hope it goes well.

No matter what I will take pictures and post them tomorrow.

Becoming a Gilmore Girl

That is the new 2010 goal, well at least to read like one. I plan to paricipate in the "The Gilmore Girl Reading Challenge."

Throughout the show's seven seasons books and reading were large part of "Gilmore Girls, especially for Rory." Someone (with too much time on their hands) made an episode-by-episode list of all the books seen, read, or mentioned in the series. Lisa, another blogger, was emailed the list and dreamed up challenge.

There are three levels of participation:
Emily: Read 5 books from at least two different categories.
Lorelai: Read 10 books from at least three different categories.
Rory: Read 20 books from at least four different categories.

The challenge officially runs from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010. You can find more details and a complete list of books to choose from here and you can join the challenge here.

My goal is to be a "Rory." Books read so far 7/20. Over the year I'll update this post as I finish books:

1) Stuart Little -E.B. White
2) The Wizard of Oz -L. Frank Baum
3) R is for Ricochet -Sue Grafton
4) S is for Silence -Sue Grafton
5) Tuesdays with Morrie -Mitch Albom
6) Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone -J.K. Rowling
7) Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire -J.K. Rowling
8) Alice's Adventures in Wonderland -Lewis Carroll
9) How the Grinch Stole Christmas -Dr. Seuss
10) Othello

2009 -72 books (including audio books, 63 without)
2008 -66 books

Non-Fiction Books Read:
2009 -15 books
2008 -13 books

Fiction Books Read:
2009 -57 books
2008 -53 books

2009 Stats:
Audio Books Listened To -9 books, I only started listening too audio books in June
Highest Reading Month – June with 10 books and 1 audio
Lowest Reading Month –March and May only 3 books each

2010 Reading Goals:
Read/Listen to 84 Books (7 books a month)
Read 6 Classical Novels
Read 20 Non-Fiction Books

2010 Goal Reached

I thought solving my knock-off Rubik cube would take longer. I was done by 3:30am January 2nd. On my own I doubt that I would ever have completed the challenge…unless removing the sticker's counts. But with a solving guide and four hours the impossible puzzle became possible. Yay! I've since complete the Rubik cube three more times (always with the helpful cheat sheet close by).

My new Rubik goal is to be able to solve the cube without having to look at my sheets. I'm also pondering other challenges I could accomplish this year, any suggestions?

My 2010 Goal

I like making New Years' resolutions and setting goals for myself. Often I am over eager and set too many goals for a time so this year I have one goal. Before the year is done I will have solved the Rubik Cube (I am not above searching the internet for help).
