I have been pressuring myself to post something anything as at least grist for the mill of this style of social media - which of course leads to paralysis: is this witty enough deep enough topical enough thoughtful enough enough enough. And the answer is always "no" because this is like suddenly thinking about the process of achieving orgasm while attempting to achieve orgasm - not happening now.

So fine. My fall back position (oh dear) is cooking: posting recipes so that I can find them again. Here, therefore, is my favourite split pea soup recipe:


It is a hassle to puree the soup in batches - but so totally worth it. I cheat by dusting just a bit of cayenne into the soup as I puree (instead of the chillies), or sometimes leaving it out and letting people dust their own at table. But don't leave out the goat cheese crumbles on top of each bowl.

Open ID

Okay, oh people who know more than me: what is good about Open ID and what is bad about it?

The latest DW email encourages newbies to get their Open ID before they delete their LJ accounts.

In general I don't like the idea of having one sign in protocol for all my online things. Easy to use, yes, but if compromised, oh dear.

So, for those of you who love Open ID - why? And for those of you who hate Open ID - why?

I suspect I won't change my chicken-hearted little mind, but every now and then someone shares something that gives you a whole new viewpoint to look from. Yay new viewpoints.
