Hey Grandpa, What's for Supper?

I'm wondering what to blog about tonight--here are my options

  • The fact Mom and I have attended funerals for the last two Saturdays and just found out Mom's neighbor Bruce Hartman passed away yesterday

  • Our turn to host Monday night supper-Sam decided to start a fire in the wood stove and due to a malfunction, wet wood or bad karma completely filled the garage (and house) with smoke.

  • Tuesday night--epsiode 2 of Man vs Stove--Sam fought the stove and the stove won (again)

  • Sam's doctor appointment

  • Kraut-making (that is coming, I have pictures)

  • Today Sam painted part of the garage floor and filled the house with noxious, nauseating, hazardous fumes.

  • My car doesn't smell like smoke anymore--more like a toxic waste site

I think I'll just tell you what I made for dinner--a copycat recipe of Olive Garden's Zuppa Tuscana soup. I picked the kale from the garden last night and the soup is delicious. Made a pan of homemade cornbread.

Let's just talk about food. Recipes, anyone?


  1. There's nothing like a great new recipe to inspire me to cook. The soup looks really good.

    Don't think I've ever used kale before. Might have to try some sometime. I have some broccoli I'm going to turn into Broccoli Cheese Soup later today. That's the great thing about Fall, time to launch the soup repertoire again.

  2. Soup looks yummy, especially on these cold days, Wood in the stove and long johns on. I'm afraid we are in for a long winter.

    Love to get your recipe for the soup.

    I made kraut for the first time this year, turned out really good and the process really wasn't too hard. Share your Kraut Recipe with us will you!
    God Bless and have a great week!
