Tuesday Ramble

Delicious autumn!
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.

George Eliot

Good morning everyone.  It's still pretty cold out, but they say it will be warming up some today.  Had a nice day yesterday.  Procrastinated and didn't make it to my short story class.  First time that happened so I must be more careful next week.  Did attend my Nutritional Enlightenment class.  I'm really not too happy with that class and am looking forward to it being over next week.  I hate to be a quitter so I am determined to finish it but I don't like the teacher, and I find that I know far more than she does.  That's pretty sad.  I also realize now that the reason she does not like to take questions is that she doesn't know the answers.  

Holistic healing starts next week, and I am so looking forward to that one.  Sadly it is only a four week course.  Only problem is it starts at the same time as the last week of  "Mindfulness" so I have a big decision to make.  Right now I am leaning more towards attending "Holistic Healing".  Originally that's what I wanted, but when I found out it wasn't starting until October 29th, I figured I would fill in the time with "Mindfulness".  Little did I know that I was going to like the class.

Made this for dinner the other night.  It was awesome.  So flavorful.  I plan on making it again, but next time with legs.  I am not a thigh person but I had some on hand.

Chicken and white beans

Chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
Spanish oregano
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder
2 tbs. Lemon juice
1 can white kidney beans
Olive oil

Season chicken with oregano, salt and pepper. Brown in heated olive oil, then cover and cook until done. Remove chicken. Add white part of scallions and cook about a minute. Add lemon juice and 1/2 cup water, garlic powder and cook, scraping up any chicken bits. Add can of beans (drained), green scallion bits, and parsley. Simmer until liquid has thicken and almost gone.

Have a good one.


  1. How infuriating that the classes overlap. Can you get the class notes for whichever one you miss?

  2. Greetings and best wishes to you.
