Join me … ?

Join me for a simply supper?? All natural!! We have cabbage, carrots, celery, onions, potatoes, rutabaga  and turnips–in a rich organic Better Than Bouillon vegetable base. It’s very nice to have the large stove, and large kettle BUT in many respects I’m still “camping.” The large kettle was part of the set I purchased (for $5.) at the CARE “garage sale” the first week I was here (early October). I still have not found my boxes with kitchen utensils; I have not located my cutting board. And (absent-minded me) I forgot to buy garlic for the soup. We’ll have Brown Rice Baked with Sweet Potato Triscuit for a little crunch. I have veggies for a salad but will limit myself to soup tonight. ~~ We haven’t seen the sun all day; it has been very gloomy with some rain. Smiley face with chef's hatA “hot soup” kind of day!! ~~ Speaking of camping: I’m still sleeping in my sleeping bag because a third of the bed is loaded with the big dining chairs, another third has my previous television and other things. (I have too much stuff!!)

Postscript, Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014, 9:30 AM: Funny how peculiar things come to mind?! For many hours I’ve been humming and singing words from the old song Shoo Fly Pie and Apple Pan Dowdy. Happy tummySpecifically, like a broken record “Makes my eyes light up and my tummy say howdy.”  That’s the way I feel about freshly prepared food!! I REALLY enjoyed the vegetable soup yesterday and will continue to enjoy… because several small containers are in the freezer. (The meals prepared at CARE are “highly processed food” and my tummy rebels and screams “no way.” Granted, the CARE Center has to operate within a budget but [IMHO] their food is garbage!! Fresh fruit and vegetables are rarely served!! The occasional salad is prepared with iceberg lettuce which has no nutritional value. ~~ On a positive note: I have the health [and wealth?*] to buy and prepare appetizing food for myself.)

* Health is wealth!!
