Soup....I made soup!

This week has been fairly uneventful. Boys are back in school, have been since last week. Maggie is still enjoying her job and responsibility. Jerry is still working nights, and wishing he could work days, he won't be switched because he is very reliable. The most exciting thing to happen around here is that I made soup. Potato soup with Honeybaked Ham thrown in towards the end. It was made in the crockpot, it isn't always easy to get the potatoes to soften as quickly as you would like, so the potato masher gets used several times. Anyway, potatoes aren't the only ingredient in my soup, there's fresh onions, garlic, salt, pepper, milk, butter, sometimes a thicken agent, and tonight ham. Soup thick enough to stand a fork in! Wonderful,flavorful goodness!

Live fully.....(full tummies too!)

That sounds absolutely delicious. We have taken to using our crock pot more. In fact, not to even try to outdo you, Maryann made a "Spicy Bean Stew" last night. It was more like a soup. It was not thick at all, but still good.

One thing about such meals, we will have soup for several meals. With only the two of us the meals last a while. There is something about the soups and stews "curing" in the refrigerator that makes them even tastier the next time. A slice of home baked bread also goes good with them.

My best to all.

Serve Well! Live Fully! Do Good Works!

I have given the ingredients, I very rarely measure anything. It's all done to taste. Peel and cut potatoes before you cook them, they will cook faster if you do. Only put in enough water to cover the potatoes, even then you may need to strain some off. Add onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and any other spice you might want to your taste. That's all I do.
