For the last 5 months, or since I left night shift, I can not sleep through the night. Doesn't matter what I do or how f'n tired I am... I CAN NOT SLEEP STRAIGHT THROUGH!  I've tried melatonin, tryptophan, ambien, benadryl...nada!  I was up at 330 this morning. Why??? It's irritating as hell and makes me grumpy.

White bean and kielbasa stew


White bean and kielbasa stew
1 pound dried white beans (navy or Great Northern are fine)
14 ounces kielbasa, cut into 1/2" slices
4 cups chicken broth
1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 large onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp Italian seasoning
5 oz. baby spinach

In a crock pot (it says 4-6 quart but I have NO idea what size mine is LOL), combine beans, kielbasa, broth, tomatoes (and their juices), onion, garlic, Italian seasoning and 1 cup water (I'll readily admit that I didn't even see the water in this recipe and didn't add it...mine was good!).
Cover and cook until the beans are tender, on low for 7-8 hours or high 5-6 hours. (I did mine on low for 6 1/2 hours and that was plenty).
Just before serving, stir in the spinach.  Serve with bread (sourdough was delish!)

Melissa Etheridge will be playing in Indianapolis at Butler University on August 22nd and I'm not going!!! *insert REALLY big pouty femme face here*

The tickets go on sale tomorrow and are over $200 for the pair. I just can't justify spending that kinda cash on a couple of hours in the terrace at a university to hear her sing.


a'cuz syrynn told me to do it!

Sum up your opinion or impression of me in one word, leave it as a comment in this posting, and then post this sentence in your own journal, please.
Once you've been tagged, you have to write a blog with 6 weird facts/things/habits about yourself, saying who tagged you. In the end you need to choose the 6 people to be tagged and list their names. No tag backs.

1. I always wash the left side of my body first.
2. I can't drink my coffee till it's cooled a bit.
3. I have to fall asleep with my feet out of the covers...nothing but my head and feet are out of the covers.
4. I collect rubber ducks...well, actually...anything with ducks.
5. I only use ketchup on burgers, hot dogs, and potatoe products....NOTHING ELSE!
6. I can't blow my nose...YES I know HOW! I think it's a physical defect.

So, now I must tag some folks...hmmm... texxyboi, pizzaguy69, syrynn, slvrtonguedevil, endivee, and vintagebutch
