...multi-tasker. OR at least I like to think that what I'm doing could be classified as such.
Right now I'm facebooking, looking for a facebook addicts support group via google, writing this blog post, watching Craig Ferguson, watching Emeril Live, eating Skittles (my tongue is still raw from them yesterday), responding to emails from hilarious friends, doing laundry (well, the washer is really 'doing' the laundry at this very moment), searching Amazon for some fab deals, browsin' the web for other fab deals....
Does *thinking* about putting away the clean dishes count? If it does, I'm going to add that to the list and eating chips...I'm thinking about switching from Skittles to Lays chips right now.
Seriously, what is up with my junk food cravings lately. Uggghhh
Of course, the hubby and baby are knocked out cold in bed. I wonder if I'll ever out grow this night owl phase.

I'm beat from all this shopping! Let's move on to the food portion of the show...
I found this yummy makes-you-feel-good recipe at geekypoet.wordpress.com...
I am making this with whole milk (because I'm not a Vegan).
Another variation is to use sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes, and use apple juice instead of broth.
4 Russet Potatoes (or equivalent of other kind of potato)
2 cups veggie broth (I use chicken broth)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 spring fresh rosemary, whole (remove stem before serving)
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or unsweetened soy or rice milk or if you're like me whole milk)
salt and pepper
*I add chopped celery and parsley*
Peel the potatoes and cut into medium sized cubes. Place potato and broth into slow cooker and set on low. Add rosemary, 1 tsp salt, and fresh ground pepper. If the potatoes aren’t covered by the broth add a little more.
Cook all day on low (6 - 10 hours). Use an immersion blender to puree everything. You can also use a blender, but make sure not to fill it all the way or you’ll have a hot mess on your hands!
Add milk and puree some more. Taste and adjust salt and pepper. Serve topped with fresh chopped thyme and chives.
*I grade monterey jack cheese and sprinkle it on top.*
