I hope you all had a delightful Thanksgiving. We sure did. Are you still using up your turkey leftovers? Here is a quick and delicious soup recipe, sure to cure whatever is ailing you.
Dandy's Turkey Soup recipe
1/2 c chopped onion
1/2 c chopped celery
1/2 c chopped carrots
2 cloves chopped garlic
1 TBSP EVOO
8 cups chicken stock
1 medium potato (golden or red), chopped with skins on
2 handfuls of your favorite small pasta
2 c chopped turkey
1 TBSP dried parsley
1/4 tsp pepper
salt to taste
In a large stock pot, saute the first 5 ingredients until tender. Toss in potatoes and add stock, bring to a boil. Add pasta, cook according to package (mine was 7 minutes). Turn down heat, add turkey and seasonings. ENJOY!! Freezes well, too.
In other sewing news, I finished the quilting and binding on both snowmen. Although my machine started acting up a bit on mine. Mine has the red binding. I was brave enough to try some star quilting on mine, and pretty pleased with my results despite my machine's attitude. Mom's is in the blue. I still need to find buttons, but I am hoping to catch them on sale. Let me know if you see any good sales, girls! But, I consider these done. I promise to show another shot of them with eyes on.
Oh and finally, thanks to everyone who entered my 200th post giveaway for a good cause! There were a lot of entries and I am very appreciative to all of you who entered. A special thanks to those who contributed to my kettle. My kettle so far has $20 in it. I know we are going to add to that sometime in December, so I will keep it up until Christmas.
