There's been a whole lot of 'under-the-weather-ness' around here and I think the best remedy for that is homemade soup. Sooo...I made some. Or rather, I made a lot of it. Two huge stock pots full of it. One of beef barley with lots of yummy carrots, onions and celery, and one pot of creamy chicken with wild rice (and lots of veggies, of course!). Saturday evening when Kevin returned home from band practice, I asked which one he'd like to have for dinner. He had to - ahem - taste each one several times before he could render a verdict. Beef barley it was. The creamy chicken and wild rice had to wait until Sunday at lunch. No matter, we enjoyed them equally.
There is some of each residing in the fridge for soup and sammie lunches this week, and some in the freezer. Both our freezer and mom and dad's freezer as well. Oh, and Deb, we might be able to work out a trade ... say a little soup for a little tube of Crabtree and Evelyn Gardener's Therapy hand cream ;o)
