A quick and easy corn chowder with just a hint of heat and smokiness! This soup is the perfect way to use any pulled pork leftovers you may have.
Dear reader, I know you’re here for the recipe. What’s about to follow this paragraph and picture is going to be some blah blah blahing on my part. Should you choose to skip to the pink outlined recipe at the bottom of the page: I will totally understand! However you may miss out on something deep and/ or hilarious.
You have been warned.
Online profiles are Whack!
Two weeks ago my divorce was finalized. That day made the top ten, (top five even), of the worst days of my life. However, I’ll get into all that maybe in a future dessert post probably. Today I’m going to tell you something silly that I did.
At the insistent encouragement of a friend, I signed up for a dating app. Then in my “profile” I was honest in marking that I’m not ready for a relationship at this time, but that they can take me out on dates on the condition that I don’t think they’re a total creep. And only if they want to treat me like a lady. Haha!
Next came the “about me” section where I probably self sabotaged myself some more:
Hey there! I’m Juli and here is all that you don’t really care to know about me: I am a closet adrenaline junkie certified as a stunt driver. I do nothing with that certification though because I don’t want a ticket. 😩. Lame. I rock climb regularly. Totally high maintenance; sorry, not sorry. And I absolutely hate football (or at least a guy that will watch it rather than hang with me). Divorced and broken.
Yep, self saboteur through and through.
People are whack!
Either I’ve been out of the dating world for too long, or men these days are kinda whack. For your comedic pleasure, here are some of the messages I got in the three days I had my profile live (yes, it’s been deleted. I am soooo not ready for all that crazy. LOL!)
“Divorced and broken? I like the sound of that.” (Ummm, hello creeper!)
“Divorced and broken… you’re hilarious!” (Hmmm, I don’t think our personalities will mesh at all, simply because I find funny things funny, and you find sad things funny.)
“Broken? I can fix you good!” (Reported this one to the app as a spam account.)
“Just be grateful you didn’t have kids. They’re what will really break you.” (I do have kids you idiot and they are the best thing that ever happened to me!)
“Improper English gives people the impression that you’re stupid.” (I ain’t got no idear what your talking about. Their totally be brains in this they’re head of mine!)
“Are you into ritualized sacrifice of stolen newborn baby pandas?” (Winner winner, chicken dinner! Here’s my phone number….)
The good news is, that three days of having a profile totally helped get me out of my funk. Now I am moving onward and upward!!! Next stop: my own cookbook!
Enough talk. Let’s eat!
