Soup's on

Some 'bug' is trying to catch me. My nose is running. I'm running as fast as my walker can go. I'm guzzling down Emergen-C and tea and water. I even had dried lima bean soup for lunch. As soon as I knew DKG and JLAG would be back from Springfield I got out the crockpot and ham hock and put them on. All I had to do was wash the dried limas, slice an onion, cover with tap-water and let-er-rip all day long. I didn't even add salt as the ham hock was salty enough. It was done in time for KJA to take it to meeting last night. It seemed a little loose, so I reserved one cup of the lumps and put the rest through the blender. It thickened up nicely. Back in went the lumps. I had the leftovers for lunch with leftover green limas dumped in. It made a nice combination. However, Bobby claimed my portion of the ham hocks. I finally found some bread in the freezer...just about half a loaf...I couldn't find it this morning and had croutons with my scrambled eggs...not half bad. When I got out the top round for Swiss Steak for supper, I did find the bread. The "shower gang" stayed after meeting to arrange decorating...Chili Peppers, Desert Mural, Cactus. Cast Iron Skillets and Dutch Ovens, Old Suitcases, etc. I'm going to take a little nap and then will make the Green Chili-Cheese-Corn Corn Muffins for Matt and Carolyn's party tomorrow afternoon


  • Oohh! Sounds like you're going to have a fun shower. Do you have pics? I would like to see how everything turned out.
