Five o'clock somewhere
Looks like our weekend has gotten off to a good start!
Our old college friend Corky came over from Greensboro and we made Noodle Soup together and downloaded Hearthfire for Skyrim on our Xbox and proceeded to act like we were still nineteen, which in actuality we are..... now Hearthfire...... my my my! You build houses! You decorate them!! Did they create this game just for ME?! You should see the house I am building.......
It has been my intention every day this week to make something, but all I managed were some good meals, some really good brownies, drank a few beers, went to a couple of production meetings at the theater and did stuff with Gerry. Life just gets in the way sometimes.....
I am now committed to doing two plays for May. I have never worked on two productions at the same time, we'll see how this goes, but the crew for both shows are the best around, should be a fun time for all.
BTW, THANKS! to all of you for your comments about the Lark book, it was all of you that encouraged me to apply in the first place, so a big thanks to you for the support xoxo
a lovely bowl of noodle soup, bowl from my great pal Meredith Heywood, it is beyond soulful. The camera has sort of distorted the size, it looks like a wee little bowl, but it's not really. It's a perfect size.
In a previous post about making this soup I tried to describe what the noodle prep should look like, here it is. Make these little sliced doughs into coils and flatten them
It was fun to watch these two trying to roll, flatten and then pinch off one inch pieces of dough for the pot. They did a great job, slow, but it tasted good just the same. They aren't going to be making this for two thousand monks like our friends that taught us any time soon, but it will do for the three of us!
