iPhone, soup #recipe, and snow #weatherjunky

bgm (1)Woohoo, we are getting another wintry blast, and this time we have the full banquet: accumulating snow, sleet, freezing rain, then warming up and heavy rain to the tune of 1.5″. Yay us.

IMG_0139We’re in a heavy snow band right now.

I tried one of the new functions on my iPhone 6s, Slo Mo (very cool), but the upload time is forever and a day so you’ll have to take my word for it (grrr).


What’s the best way to handle crappy weather?

How about making a big pot of cream of cauliflower soup?

1 head of cauliflower broken into florets
2 medium cooking onions, rough chop
4-5 stalks of celery with tops chopped 1″ dice
1 large can chicken stock
couple pinches of sea salt (stock already has a lot of salt so go easy)
1-2 tsp cracked pepper
ground garlic, several twists
1-2 tsp cumin
Slow cook 3.5-4 hrs, let cool then process with blender
Add a pint of 1/2 & 1/2, warm & adjust seasonings to taste

The house smells absolutely divine!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it sleet and rain…

About Nya Rawlyns

Nya Rawlyns doesn’t write typical romance. She writes emotion as a contact sport, rough and often raw. It need not be pleasant, heart-warming or forever after. What she seeks is what lies beneath—a dance of extremes, the intersect of need and desire, and the compromises we make when pain and pleasure become indistinguishable. ***** She has lived in the country and on a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, earned more than 1000 miles in competitive trail and endurance racing, taught Political Science to unwilling freshmen, and found an avocation in materials science. ***** When she isn’t tending to her garden or the horses, the cats, or three pervert parakeets, she can be found day dreaming and listening to the voices in her head.
