We're in for another stormy night, maybe even some possible tornado warnings thrown into the mix for good measure. As I heard the thunder get nearer, I decided to take my camera outside and snap a few photos of our stormy skies.
I will never, ever tire of these immense, beautiful, yet angry spring skies. They evoke a speechless kind of awe from me... not that I stand around outside talking to myself anyway. But I do love walking around our property, snapping pics while it thunders overhead and lightning pierces the clouds every few minutes.
I can hear the rain now, as it begins to lightly tap on our metal roof. Our weather radio does automatic tests every Wednesday at noon, and I was glad to hear it fire up today at noon, right on schedule. This way we know it's in proper order, and the batteries are still good. 'Tis the season for a well-maintained and very necessary weather radio!
Oh, and that black bean soup we had last night?
Let's just say I'm trying to redeem myself tonight with chicken kiev, a time tested and proven favorite from days gone by... it was one of my son's favorite dishes when he was little, and as I racked my brain today trying to think of something really deelish to make tonight, that's what finally creeped into my brain membrane.
Hubby choked down his bowl of soup last night, while I regret to say I didn't even patronize myself enough to do the same. I topped our soup with a lil bit of sour cream, green onion and shredded cheddar cheese. It smelled delicious, honestly it did... the whole house smelled good, so I had high hopes for it. But it did NOT make the grade. The rest of it went right into the trash this morning.
I have a feeling the recipe was good, but the bottom line is that hubby and I just don't like black bean soup. I have always had an aversion to the pastiness of beans. I would like to change that, since as I mentioned yesterday, I realize that beans are very healthy and good for you.
So maybe next time we are in a restaurant that features black bean soup, I will give their version a try and see if it's better than my version.
Until then, we'll eat some deep fried butter-laden chicken kiev tonight, so that we can continue to clog up our arteries even more. *sigh*
