5:45 am

..... not sure. he seems very fierce, but is strictly an indoor cat so I don't know his romantic attractions
5:45 am
sprite

nope, blood
5:46 am
Wolvie

no blood - where did you see that?
5:46 am
Andree

I don't think Rock hudson did either metal
5:47 am
Bloodaxe

he claims that the chances of nuclear destruction are increasing and if we inhabit other planets the human race has a greater chance of survival.
5:47 am
metaleather

in that case, he may very well be Rock Hudsonish after all. Providing of course that Rock was declawed and neutered
5:47 am
Bloodaxe

i'm listening to yesterday's BBC podcast right now.
5:48 am
EnemyisME

Oh, the evidence indicates Rock knew his gender preference quite well, if it matters
5:48 am
Wolvie

oh. I believe that's probably true - unfortunately
5:48 am
Wolvie

ah - I will have to look for that - thanks. Love Hawking
5:48 am
sprite

He is right, as usual. Wouldn't do those other planets any good though, seeing how destructive mankind is
5:48 am
metaleather

true Enemy, but I don't know the cat's so I can't truly judge if his name is representative of that...
5:48 am
metaleather

I tend to think it's because he's so solid and stubborn
5:49 am
metaleather

not that that's a Hudsonesque quality per se, but more of a geological rock quality
5:49 am

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced or grated
1/2 pound fresh tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped - about 1 cup, or 1
8 oz can of tomatoes with their juice, chopped
2 tbsps chopped cilantro

Sort and rinse the lentils and place them in a soup pot with the cold water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until tender, about 20 minutes.

While the lentils are cooking, heat the olive oil in a medium sized saute pan and add the onion, 1/2 tsp salt, and a few pinches of cayenne. Cook over medium heat until the onions are soft, 7 - 8 minutes, then add the diced vegetables, another 1/2 tsp of salt, and the spices. Cook for 5 minutes, then stir in the garlic and ginger and cook for another minute.

Add the vegetables and the tomatoes to the lentils and their broth. Cover and cook for 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to blend and deepen. Season to taste with salt and cayenne. Garnish with the cilantro.


Wolvie notes: this soup is fine without the cayenne for those who don't like heat. Sub some aleppo or other, milder chile. I add black pepper, and I use a bit more veggie and some of the spices than are called for - I usually do in all soups. I also find this soup to be fantastic if you let it sit overnite before you eat it. Very good that day - much better the next. As with a lot of things. :-)

what a fortuitous halt Haz
9:40 am
Haz1558

It's been very fortunate, I've found some words while it gathers strength again.
9:41 am
metaleather

it's good you're allowing it to rest and recuperate. you don't want to strain your vacuum. it might never recover.
9:42 am

That's the strategy I've always used and it has served me well.
9:42 am

good system.
9:42 am

9:42 am

I'm down to my final 14, what about you Haz?
9:42 am
Haz1558

I have a houseproud friend who went through 9 vacuums in 12 years. She could have ended up in jail for that.

9:47 am
Haz1558

Off I go again - seeing nothing new and haven't time to do more just now. The vacuum had better brace itself.

10:50 am
stidmama

it's also in some other mints (like chocolate mint) but I can still cope with spearmint.
