Chunky Chicken Hash

I’m getting to be very fond of skillet dinners.

If the timing is right, and it usually is, I can put the skillet on the heat, chop / cut and fry for 15 minutes. cover for another 15 minutes to finish and dinner is done in half an hour.

I use a big skillet so there is a lot of room for all the food but it’s dinner in only one pan, making clean-up (for mon mari) easy.

Naturally, I used butternut squash, but carrots or Brussels sprouts would work the same. Broccoli or cauliflower would need to be handled more gently, and added just before covering.

Look at this: I appear to be successfully using my new computer!

All (some) of my problems have been solved.

A few (most) were caused by me in the first place.

I have to admit, having my computer going off on it’s own and doing stuff without my knowledge or permission seems to bring out the worst in me….. Especially when it’s changing my files and sending them off to parts unknown.

Instead of carefully thinking through a course of action I tend to attack with the delete key…. sometimes resorting to doing an ‘End Task’.

I’m (usually) knowledgeable enough not to do any serious damage.

I’m often impulsive enough that getting it back the way I want it, and then working, is time consuming.

I’m almost there….. As usual, I learned a lot on the way.

  1. I have a program running on my computer that stops all the Windows updates so I can make sure I don’t end up with an artificially intelligent (hah!) computer. I don’t want it doing things on its own.

    • I have been complaining about user-friendly computers since someone wrote the first OS DOS was simple
      Good idea about the updates. I was just surprised that this Win 10 is so different than the one on my old computer that was ‘up-to-date
