VANITY FAIR RECAP AND OTHER SHIT
I loooooove Vanity Fair...the articles are just so terrific...except Dominick Dunne just writes about boring rich fucks...no tanks....there is an excellent article on Laura 'The Ice Queen' Bush...hoooboy....she is so tight you could shove a straight pin up her ass and it would knock both hips out of joint...and the editors letters have a great one on how the pentagon figured out a way to save money...by quietly ending the 155 year old tradition of
having marines guard the gates of the U. S. Naval Academy as well as the crypt of John Paul Jones, one of the Navy's founders and a great hero in the Revolutionary War. The freeded up troops will be sent to Iraq and Afghanistand.......surprise.....
another brilliant way to keep money in the pentagon? they are making the soldiers pay for battle gear that was either distroyed or damaged during the war.I swear I am not making this shit up....made one guy pay $570 for a kevlar vest that was damaged by road side bomb.. when his home town found out about it ..the radio station raised money and paid him for it...judas priest..
And don't want anyone to think that I am against anyone stepping up and admitting to being sexually abused. If that is what it takes to help them heal...I am all for it..but I was just a little pissed to read the article about Teri Hatcher's abuse while looking at her drapped across some riding gear in a stable... all dewey eyed and glammed up...and then below it about how her uncle made her tough his penis until he came...and every other paragraph was about her new book 'Burnt Toast'....well, excuse me....should have been called 'I will talk about my most horrific moments of sexual abuse to sell my book and get you to buy this magazine...'...fuckme till I sell a book...
Great article on "Sixteen words that changed the world"..that was a good one...Also one on the two biggest scum bags that ever crossed the Deleware...Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay...what a bunch of money grubbing dickheads....
Good investigation article about the bride who's husband went over board on a cruise ship.......Ohhhhhh and the article on civil rights was about a guy named Clarence Jones, who was Martin Luther King, Jr.'s right hand man...never had heard about him..and was very informative and very interesting..he has a book in the works called "martin and me", which I really will want to read..
I cannot tell you how much I love Vanity Fair...such fun to read...I have learned something with each story or article...I don't know what the price of a subsciption is ...but it is worth every penny of it...thank the Goddess for Shady Lane....
ok....now for the best part...my recipe for homemade Tomato Soup...got the recipe out of the DAMN NEWS... and made it and love it...here 'tis.....
CREAMY TOMATO SOUP WITH HERBS
1 TSP. OLIVE OIL(I USED CANOLA)
1 SMALL ONION(FOR ABOUT 1/2 CUP CHOPPED)
1 TSP. BOTTLED MINCED GARLIC(I CHOPPED MY OWN)
2 (14 1/2-OUNCE) CANS CHOPPED TOMATOES SEASONED WITH BASIL, GARLIC AND OREGANO(SEE NOTE)
1 (15-OUNCE) CAN TOMATO SAUCE
1 CUP LOW-FAT MILK, WHOLE MILK OR HALF-AND-HALF( I USED ABOUT 1 1/2 CUP)
1/4 CUP GRATED OR SHREDED PARMESAN CHEESE( I USED COLBY/JACK)(IT WAS WHAT I ALREADY HAD IN FRIG)
PLAIN OR GARLIC CROUTONS, FOR GARNISH(OPTIONAL)(I USED HOME MADE CROUTONS)
HEAT THE OIL IN A 41/2 QUART DUTCH OVEN OR SOUP POT OVER MEDIUM HEAT. PEEL AND FINELY CHOP THE ONION, AND ADD IT TO THE POT. STIR AND COOK FOR 2 MINUTES.
ADD THE GARLIC, AND STIR AND COOK 30 SECONDS. ADD THE TOMATOES WITH THEIR JUICES AND THE TOMATO SAUCE. RAISE THE HEAT TO HIGH, AND BRING THE SOUP TO A BOIL.
REDUCE THE HEAT TO LOW. STIR IN THE MILK AND PARMESAN CHEESE. DO NOT BOIL THE SOUP AFTER THE MILK HAS BEEN ADDED. STIR AND COOK FOR 2 MNUTES. REMOVE FROM THE HEAT AN SERVE AT ONCE, GARNISHED WITH CROUTONS, IF DESIRED. MAKES 4 SERVINGS...
NOTE: IF YOU CAN'T FIND THE SEASONED TOMATOES SUBSTITUTE PLAIN DICED TOMATOES WITH 1/2 TSP EACH DRIED BASIL ND OREGANO..
CALORIES PER SERVING...181 (16%FROM FAT)

CHOLESTEROL 7 MG
SODIUM 1,725(DAMN..I JUST READ THAT...COULD USE TOMATO SAUCE WITH REDUCED SALT...)

I added a large dollop of sour cream on top and that made it extra good.....
