I see him. Wait, is that…no couldn’t be.
Corn and white bean soup
2 bags frozen corn heated enough that it’s not icy or two cans of corn, drain if you are using canned
2 cans chick peas or a white bean like Navy or Great Northern White, drained
2 large carrots shredded or diced
half an onion chopped-I prefer yellow but any will do
2 stalks of celery chopped
1 red , yellow or orange pepper seeded and chopped
1 box veggie broth or chicken or beef if you prefer
spices- I normally use sea salt, black pepper, rosemary and a little sage for this soup.
some butter or olive oil for sauteeing and some water on hand to add to these veggies to help soften them as needed
Blender, large soup pot, pan for sauteeing, spatula or wooden spoon to stir veggies while sauteeing, ladle, large spoon for stirring
So once you have everything chopped and rinsed you can move on to these steps.
So add the butter or oil to the sautee pan and get it going over medium heat. When the pan is hot add the celery, onion, carrots and pepper. Sautee until fairly soft then add to soup pot.
Take half the corn and put it in the blender with either broth or water and blend until smooth then add to the soup pot. You will probably have to do this in several batches in the blender. Then take half the beans (1 can) and add them with broth or water to the blender. Blend until smooth and add that to the pot. Then add the corn and beans you didn’t blend to the pot as well.
Next add your broth and spices to the soup pot. Get it going on medium high. Stir on occasion and cook until hot. Then serve hot, add low fat sour cream, shredded cheese or chopped green chiles.
Then put in….
So there is your meal and a movie. I had hoped to finish this one last month so you will still get another one of these in March.
“Here comes your worst nightmare, here comes chaos, prepare to meet your maker, you pathet…” Oh, howdy there. It’s me Mecha G and it must be time for me to share the monster of the month. It’s a real old fashioned howler it is the Werewolf of London from the 1935 movie of the same name.
He turned all fuzzy by way of a plant. What a cool plant. He looked a little rough but of course he went doing some stalking and acting like a crazy beast and all which is always a good thing. Unfortunately this good thing came to an end. These films never end well for us poor monsters. Oh, well see you next time. “Arrrrrrrrrrr, I’m coming to end your puny existence, I’ll crush you under my metallic might!!!!!!!!”
1-The locations are spectacular.
2-The more explanation they add into the film the less sense it makes.
3-They reveal too much about the story too soon.
4-As far as 1970′s dystopian sci-fi goes this one tries harder, but the results are mixed.
5-The red diaper look on dudes wasn’t cool in 1974 nor will it ever likely be even in any future universe ever.
6-If waving one’s fingers at someone worked as a punishment it would have been done a long time ago.
7-It doesn’t take long into this film for the average viewer to begin laughing.
8-There are some moments are images that work in this film, but there are just many that feel like they are just trying to pad the length of the film.
9-It’s not a good film, but there are enough odd and interesting ideas and visuals to make it worth re-visiting from time to time.
10-No one in this film really looks very comfortable with what they are doing.
A snow day…..
It may be March, but around here the snow total for the winter is well over twice as much as our usual total already. So last and into this morning we had a thin layer of ice and a couple more inches of snow dumped on us. That’s on top of the snow that was still on the ground from weeks ago. No surprise that school was called off quickly but at first my was to open at noon, but then it was changed to be closed for the day. So woohoo more free time!
