Well-Balanced Meal

Having a bowl of canned green beans and then a mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwich for lunch is healthy, right?

After all, they're both green...

Isn't that how it works?

I made this soup yesterday.  I like tomatoes, I like making soups cause it's easy, I'm trying to like kale.  I love rosemary.  It seemed tasty.

I make soups in my rice cooker because it seems easier to me and I don't have to worry about if it's set at the right temperature or if I'm burning it.  It doesn't pop to tell me when it's done, but I just think of it as a crock pot kind of.

So to start, I put the onions and garlic and olive oil in the rice cooker and let them cook awhile.  It smelled great.  Who doesn't love cooked onions?  Well, probably lots of people, but I think they're one of the most delicious things in the world.  Then I added some white wine and the rosemary & thyme.  Oh my.  It was the most delicious thing I have ever smelled in my life.  It took a lot of self control to not stand there with a fork eating the wine soaked onions out of the rice cooker.

I did finish making the soup, and it was amazing.  So good.  I recommend it.  Especially if you're going to have guests over, your house will smell divine.

No Longer an Early-Twentysomething

I'm about to turn 24.  That sounds really old to me, and I feel a lot more adult-ish this year than I ever have before.  I don't think I'm old enough to be an adult yet.

Hopefully I will successfully be able to fake my way into adulthood.  Mid-twenties here I come! :)
