I need to clear off my tabs in Chrome. These have been open for a few days, to remind myself of these projects I want to do (since simply bookmarking them will put them out of sight & out of mind--not what I want!) but at some point, I do need to clear out my tabs and close Chrome and shut down my computer. I haven't done that in a few weeks. My poor lappy.

After my other projects (some more important than others) like cleaning my room, clearing extraneous data off my HD (or buying this... someday), doing homework, and starting/doing some sort of programming project this summer--I want to do some nice cooking. "After" is a bad word to use there though. More likely "during". Cleaning my room is like 10 projects in one, anyway. I am terribly backed up on stuff I want to do/need to get done. Summer's going pretty quickly! But anyway, the cooking (images © other people):


I made some makeshift granola a couple times already, with Grape Nuts, oats, raisins, peanut butter, and a drizzle of honey. The E-How article is a good base for actually baking some sometime, for that nice crisp that granola's usually supposed to have. Probably in my toaster oven! Easy peasy. As long as I don't burn it, it should be delish. Think oatmeal raisin cookies, but not in cookie form and crispier. I'm too lazy to actually bake cookies. I don't even know if I have the right tools for that.

Corn Potage.

I was describing how delicious potage is to someone and decided to google it quick to show a picture, not that it looks like a whole lot, just a plain creamy soup. It tastes really simple too. In a good way. There's pumpkin potage, and corn potage--I love both, maybe pumpkin more since I've had it less often so maybe it's more of an interesting treat. Or maybe because it's sweeter. I don't know. But this is corn potage and I figure it's easier to find/deal with corn anyway. This recipe is dirt simple. I got a can of creamed corn the other day. I wish I had a blender because I do love a smooth texture, but we'll try this chunky--I'm sure it'll still be alright.

Now that I can close these tabs... I need to write a few papers and study for a physics test happening tomorrow. ay caramba
