I have a genius idea. OK...maybe just genius to me but whatever. Why don't the food processor people invent a blade(s) that actually chop and dice? They say the ones on the market do but we both know that's a lie. They slice or pulverize--they do not dice. When a true dice is called for, like yesterday, by the time I am finished, I'm a train wreck. No, my knife skills aren't the greatest but they're OK...they get the job done. Just not as fast as I'd like. A machine to do it for me, in a nano second? Price is no object. I'm in.
I was doing the prep work yesterday for tonight's PW Chicken Pot pie. I made the pie crust and it's in the freezer. That's supposed to make it flakier. It makes enough for two, so woo hoo. I've got one for later. I hate it when the same person (Pioneer Woman) has two recipes for the same thing--one is an updated version--but they don't tell you that. While you dice yourself into insanity, you finally figure out one calls for ingredients the other one does not. And did I mention you are holding a sharp knife? While you laugh crazily at your discovery, you decide to just do your own damn thing. What. the. hell.
We'll see how that works out tonight. I knew I had a busy day today hence the do ahead. All that's left to do is thaw the pie crust for 20 minutes while I put on my cooking gear, and warm up the pot pie stuff to be pored into the crust. I figure anytime flavors have a chance to make friends over nite in the refrigerator, that's a good thing.
As for the latest on Syria, I could not be more optimistic. Anytime we can cool our jets and back the heck off of playing "World Police", other countries have a chance to step forward, and see what they can do. Waiting is an action. It's smart. It's not forcing a solution. It's allowing other options to surface. It gives God a chance to enter in.
