Good 26º VERY foggy (again!) and everything frozen morning. UGH. The sun did eventually come out yesterday...about 2pm. Warmed to a tropical 38º. Warm enough for me to bundle up and take my trash out to the can by the road.
Today is day 3 of this coughing/sneezing/runny nose mess I have. Took a "cold-allergy" pill last night and slept all night without waking up once to cough!
This weather is so reminding me of the poem that Abigail Elizabeth McIntyre wrote... I love to read this.....
(Thanks Deeewayne P-Berger for that!)
2 cartons of chicken stock
1 lg can of Kirkland chicken
1/2 cup Farro (or couscous, or Quinoa, or any pasta)
1/2 cup Mexican flavored rice (Uncle Bens)
1 can, drained, garbanzo beans
6-8 Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
handful of broccoli slaw (with shredded carrots)
6-8 broccoli pieces
4 Roma tomatoes, cut up
zest of one lemon
juice of one lemon
Put everything except tomatoes into crockpot. Turn on high for 1 hour, then low for 3-4 hours. Add tomatoes the last hour.
It was awesome!
BTW, I was experimenting again with Photoshop and figured out how to put together all the ingredients of the soup onto one picture. Yea!
