I Got That Feelin'!

Sometimes I can't 'do new' at all. Like I'm too timid to just try my own thang as it were. Other days I just sort of get right to it with no delay. I had a great idea for chicken chile-lime soup floating around in my head at work and without even much thought I got home, went in that kitchen and made it happen. Most chicken soups are good so I'm not saying I was taking names or anything but this was some unaccustomed flavors here somehow.

A freshly-made chicken broth, poached chicken thighs, rice, potatoes, carrots, cilantro, diced tomatoes, lots of lime juice and just enough chili powder to give it a back throat kick but not give your nose the runs. You know what I mean? The amount of heat was correct. So it was like a slap and then a pet stroke. A slap!...and then a pet stroke.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
