The game? Eh...not much happened that is memorable.
However, it was the bench action that caught my attention.
Whenever a player came off the court and sat on the bench, these little mealy-bugs scampered to meet their every need. As a player's butt hit the seat, an orange-shirted assistant was right there with a nice, clean, dry towel and a big Gatorade bottle. From behind, the mealy bug would place the towel on the player's shoulder and then reach around with the bottle as an offering to the demi-god.
The term "blog" turned 10 years old this week. Check out the following website for information! I was listening to KGO last night, out of San Francisco, and they actually brought on the man who coined the term. On the show, they calculated that there are now 10,000 new blogsites set up each day. Wow...just think...if only I could have a dime for every new site...
Here it is. Hope you give it a try someday!
6 large boneless/skinless chicken breasts
3 tablespoons of EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil)
4 crushed cloves of fresh garlic
2 tsps. dried Italian herbs
2 Tblsp. flour
32 fl. oz Pacific Natural Food Organic free range Chicken Broth
2 large chopped carrots
1 medium diced onion
2 diced russet potatoes
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen corn
2 cups hot water (I use boiling water)
1 can Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup
Double-recipe of Bisquick's Savory Dill Dumplings
Cut the raw chicken breasts into 1 in. cubes. Place in heated large soup pot along with the olive oil. Simmer on med. heat for 15 minutes, adding in salt, pepper, garlic, and herbs. Sprinkle flour over the top of all, stirring around for 1 minute to be sure all chicken is coated. Pour in chicken broth. Add in carrots, onion, and potatoes. Allow to simmer another 15 minutes, until carrots are nice and soft. Add peas and corn. Add hot water. Cover and simmer for another 15 minutes.
Make dumplings and drop by large spoonfuls carefully on top of simmering chicken/veggie mixture. Cover with lid and do not open for 15 minutes.! Tah-dah!
Both of my kids have joined the X-C Ski Team at CHS. It's so much fun! I'm one of the drivers and today we headed out to the mountains at 6:30 a.m. We loaded up the old van with 7 kids and off we went!
