Buzz & Game Giveaway

Went to the condo yesterday with our HandyFrank.  We’ve decided (at his insistance) to put down Prego flooring in the livingroom, and then use area rugs.  He’ll be doing the work.  He said it should come to less than what I priced carpet at.  I’ll leave the carpet in the bedrooms, but do the livingroom and two small foyer areas.  He”ll be extending the short shelves in the pantry area around (grrrr) wall oven.  The shelves only go half the depth.  Odd.  brought a dish towel, roll of toilet paper, and garbage can, and shelves I have to put together for the garage.  Even though we won’t close till Tuesday, it’s beginning to seem more real.  I”m not supposed to be going in there till I close, but they still think I closed yesterday.  Bad me!

Today’s giveawayoftheday.com game is Egyptoid 2.  I rcommended the older version a short time ago, but just downloaded this longer, 3-D version.  It doesn’t automatically make a shortcut, so note where you download it to.

I play Rise of Atlantis, which I’m sure is almost the same.  Nice game to play over a long period, a bit at a time.

Have you watched The Chew?   I’m watching because I like Michael Simon, but I’m not sure it’s going to last.  I find Diane Oz totally annoying,  though in all honesty, I can’t say why.  Let me know what you think.  BTW, I tape it so I can fast forward.  It’s supposed to be a food version of The View (ABC is so creative).

I have everything in the house except the squash.  I’m going to get one and make this.  Perhaps add a pinch or so of curry powder or cayenne.

Creamy Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small yellow onion, peeled and chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1 large butternut squash, about 2.5 lbs, peeled, seeded and chopped into 1-inch pieces
2 stems fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3-4 cups water
2 cups Silk Pure Almond Original
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
4 tablespoons toasted sliced almonds, for garnish

Heat a 5-quart soup pot over medium-low heat; add olive oil and heat for 1 minute. Add onions and garlic and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add apple, squash, thyme, bay leaf, nutmeg and enough water to cover ingredients. Turn heat to medium high and cook for 15-18 minutes, stirring occasionally, until squash is tender. Stir in Pure Almond and heat through.

Remove from heat, remove thyme stems and bay leaf and allow mixture to cool for 5 minutes. In two to three separate batches, puree soup in a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy. Return to saucepan and reheat. Add nutmeg and lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve in warm bowls garnished with toasted sliced almonds.
