    Default Nothing to say

    I don't have a thing to say worth space ….. but here I sit.
    The cats are sound asleep, my laundry is done, bed is changed, week supply of medication is sorted out, what I'll wear to church tomorrow is ready to go, blah blah blah.
    I did make a really good soup..... It's supposed to be made in a crock pot, but I made it on stove as usual.

    Sounds awesome, I have become quite fond of my slowcooker but I need a bigger one. I had a big one that the crock handle broke off of so I asked for a new one for Christmas. I got one but it is half the size. I have beans cooked and froze but I used great northern white beans. Have never tried cannellini beans.

    I never use cannellini … I always use great northern or navy. If I'm feeling wild and crazy I use pinto

    My mom use to make pea soup in a similar way. I loved it but am a bit leery of trying it myself. I have her old cook book with hand written recipes in it. Her gumbo recipe is in there. People use to pay her to make that for them. I would love to try that.

    I've never made a gumbo. I've seen so many and such different recipes -- I have no idea what to try.
    I think my next soup will be something very simple called Chicken Enchilada Soup. It's fast, easy and good.

    I have all the stuff for making cookies spread out over the counter...….. I wish I could make myself go away from this thing and get to work.
