One World One Heart

February 11, 2009

Ok, I just found out about this yesterday- did you know??

I wish I had known sooner about One Heart One World– a cool concept.  Lisa has over NINE HUNDRED blogs giving items away!!  What a neat way to meet new people and blogs.  Maybe next year I’ll participate (as a giver).

I’ve been clicking for the past 24 hours- not continuously!  I’m not sure how many sites I’ve visited, but a whole lot.  I now have a large number of blogs to revisit.  One good thing is the OWOH site will stay up past tonight- you won’t be able to win anything, but you can look at blogs you’ve probably never seen before.

No soup this week- well, I made the beef stew again, and I didn’t see the need to repeat.  I’m getting over a cold too, and cooking is not high up on my want-to-do list.

But I do plan on making cookies in the next 2 days- Valentine’s Day treats.  I’ll try to get back and show you the Valentines we made too.


Soup Monday- Double

February 2, 2009

Well, considering last Monday just zipped on by, I’ll have to talk about last week’s and this week’s soup.

Last Sunday was the Soup Swap- fun, successful as always.  We even had a few drop-ins, which made for about 11 swappers!  So on Monday I HAD to have one for dinner- I chose the Chicken Salsa Soup my friend Ann made.  It was SO GOOD!  I wish I had a recipe for you- I’ll work on it.  I decided to be double decadent and served it over rice…. I think.  That was a week ago, mind you………

At the swap I also picked black-eyed pea soup, a Greek chili (which we ate last week too), another chili, corn chowder, and another i can’t remember.

Toinght I am making a classic beef stew in the crock pot.  I even followed the directions- imagine that!  Well, I dind’t measure anything except the broth.  Even though it’s supposed to be about 60* today (CRAZY!!)  I thought the kids would like it.

Ok- gotta go make my lunch. (tuna salad sandwich)

Quick tip- when making tuna salad, add lots of veggies- it will add those veggies we need to eat every day, bulk up one can of tuna for many people, and it tastes awesome too.  I add chopped onion and green pepper, shredded carrot and of course chopped sweet pickle (along with the regular mayo, s&p, dash of seasoning salt- and tuna!).
