Things That Have Been

In the month of November, whilst I left my wonderous crowd of readers waiting, I did alot of fantastic things.

I also did a lot of really stupid things (maybe an entire month break isn't such a good thing for me--blogging being a nice ventilation for me and all).

And I even avoided doing some things that I ought to have been done... namely writing for NaNoWrimo. I have failed. ::bows head in shame::

BUT! Never fear. I would not be me without some dramatics to give you.

#1 On my list is that, if all goes according to plan, I will be going to college in January... full time.

3 Medium red potatoes 2 C water 1 Small onion, peeled and finely chopped (I'm not so big on the finely part) 3 TBS butter 3TBS all-purpose flour Crushed red pepper flakes Ground black pepper 3 C milk 1/2 tsp sugar 1 C shredded cheddar 1 C cubed ham (you can get cubed hame at the store already cubed... it's a bit tricky to find sometimes though, but it's there)
Cut potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Cook potatoes in the 2C water until tender. Drain, but remember to reserve 1 C of the liquid for later use (water may be added if needed). Set both aside.
In the pot you're going to cook it all in melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook stirring frequently until onion is translucent and tender, but not brown. Add flour to pan, season with peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes (I never actual…
