You're caring and kind and kind of out of touch.

Soon 4 of yours: son, 2 sons-in-law, and daughter will be in Iraq.

You'll be home with your pride and your smily ageless boy.

I mentioned a delicious dinner we had tonight, and got a tweet back asking for the recipe. It's a staple here in the winter and perfect for a stormy evening. We had it with a very fancy crudités which consisted of carrot sticks, celery, garbanzo beans and ranch dressing. I know, fan*cy.

diced onion and garlic and oil to saute them in
turkey kielbasa sliced thin
canned diced tomatoes (1 large or 2 small)
can canellini beans drained and rinsed
can kidney beans drained and rinsed
Tablespoon of thyme
Glug of balsamic vinegar (maybe 2 Tablespoons)
1/2 lb pasta cooked al dente according to package directions (farfalle or twists work well)

Saute onion until soft. Add garlic and add kielbasa, stir often, cook until browned. Add all remaining ingredients (except for the pasta) and simmer for a while. Add pasta, stir and serve.

Mmmm.... try it- it's good.

5 Stars. Mmm Mmm. I subbed Basil for the Thyme and doubled the Vin. Added salt and pepper. Plus, I used 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chiles. (good for stuffy noses) Nice Change! Thanks
