Beans, rain, and paper hippie lights

I felt like starting with a recipe this month, so here we go:

Chicken and Turtles
Turtles as in turtle beans!
1 1/2 c cooked black beans
1 can black turtle beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 c cooked chicken
1 c cooked rice
1/2 c chopped green pepper
1/2 large onion, chopped
2 tb oil
4 cloves garlic, chopped very fine
2 tb lime juice
2 tb water
1 tsp each oregano, chili powder and cumin
hot sauce to taste

In a large skillet, heat oil and saute onions, 1/2 the garlic and the green pepper until the onions are translucent. Stir in black beans, chicken, lime juice, water, spices, the rest of the garlic and hot sauce. simmer, stirring often till heated through. serve over hot cooked rice with shredded cheese. Nummy!

As I write this, Sully has screwed off forthwith for the land of Underbed. Why? Because the sky is making loud noises and bright lights and there is wet out there. Not a big deal when we lived in NH, but here it hasn't rained for weeks, and I am really glad it finally has. I probably won't be so glad when it's icky sticky muggy tomorrow, but for now, YAY THUNDERSTORM!

Crap. I was gonna go smoke...where's that bumberchute?

Feh. Fooey on expensive lamps and lighting! Get yourself a long cord with a lightbulb socket at one end, and a paper hippie lantern. $15.95 including tax for overhead lighting for the living room. $0.87+tax for a box of ceiling hooks.
I can't wait till Friday! We're hosting the game night. Eeee! Geektopia!
