Weekend Randomness

It's winter in GA today! LOL! No it didn't snow here, I think it snowed in the mountains. At least the sun is out, so I think the temp is above 40 now.

For the last few days I've wanted some red beans & rice. I thought I would quench that desire by going to a certain fast food chicken place. Wrong! Mainly because the serving size was just enough to make me mad. I want what I want when I want it. And that's not something that you can rush and there are somethings that I cook that I know my son will eat when he comes by. Beans are not one of those dishes, so I thought I was saving. Ha! No, the cost of a small side is what a 16 oz bag of beans costs.

So now I am being tortured by the aroma wafting (is that a word?) from the kitchen. I bought the dried beans & soaked them last night...Hours of preparation. Somethings can't be rushed.

I may have to move soon/not so soon. Not sure of the time frame right now. Well that is if I stay at my present place of employment. The uncertainty right now is the killer. I'm not totally opposed to leaving Atlanta, but some of the things I take for granted here...well it just won't be the same in the new city.

I'm soo hungry, let me see what I can snack on while I wait for the real food.

Local news people said we'd see some snowflakes Friday. I looked periodically and never saw anything resembling a snowflake. :o( Though apparently some area in the upper part of the state got 2.5 inches of snow.

I'm kind of weary of things that need that much preparation that doesn't involve hunting, killing, and skinning it but that's just me. I'm hungry for what I want when I want it.

What did you find to snack on?

If you leave the state then I hope you move somewhere fun.

I had to decrease the recipe so that I wouldn't have it forever.

I had everything to make a tasty salad, but I made a peanut butter & jelly sandwich for my snack.

Well, I don't know about fun, but I do have friends there.
