The Monkey Playground.

This site has been many things over the years. Now it is a host to a small Mac program I made [ mVNC ] and my own short ramblings. One may ask - With places like Facebook and Twitter why put your stuff up away from it all? Well, I have accounts on both and other places that I don't even remember the usernames to - and that is why. This place is my own and I kinda like it like that.


Check out mVNC - my OSX Remote Support tool or see some random ramblings and pictures I have taken.

If you've made it this far down, why not enjoy my latest rambling, found picture, or video of the animals.

:~ Potato Leek Soup

6 purple potatoes
2 large leeks - cut into 1/4 inch bites
1 small white onion - cut
1 handful of collard greens
4 strips of bacon
Parsley to look cool
4 cups veggie broth
3/4 block of cream cheese
1/2 stick of butter
1 tablespoon of minced garlic

Boil water and cut potatoes into 1/4 inch cubes
Boil the potatoes for 15-20 minutes until soft
Heat oil and garlic - then saute onions and leeks for a bit
Add Collard greens and saute until done

Cook bacon til real crispy

Remove potatoes from pot and add the butter and a cup of veggie stock to the pot

Mix potatoes, veggies, and cream cheese in a food processor until smooth - adding veggie stock slowly (and then do it again after Amanda notes that it's still kinda chunky)

Move from the food processor back to the pot.
Stir and keep on low until ready to eat.

Top with bacon and parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste.
