Soapbox ~ Chicken Soup ~ My Cat-Other Cats ~ UPS Sue ~ The Hat and Philippe's

Good 41º foggy morning. OMG, it's going to go back into the teens at night for a while again. DARN!

Ok, I was told to get on my
re the flu outbreak.... this from my BFF Jeannie who is soooooo sick. After getting a "flu shot" both she and Bill got the "flu". Bill's turned into walking pneumonia, even after a "pneumonia shot" !!! So, if you are coughing, have a fever (frequently or infrequently), body aches, and headaches.... STAY HOME!!!!!! Jeannie had to cancel an appointment and the nurse told her "thank you" as sooooooooooooo many "don't give a rap and come in anyway and spread this crap around!" I don't care if you are a man or not.... men don't tell their spouses when they don't feel good. TELL YOUR WIFE IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS!!! AND STAY HOME!!!!

Here is the chicken soup I made on Sunday....
First I cut up 3 large skinless/boneless chicken thighs and sauteéd them until brown. Put in crockpot. I get the vegetable stock at Costco... 8 cups of water (2 quarts) and 4 capfuls of the stock mix and put in crockpot with chicken.
Then I cut up mushrooms, a leek, and green beans. Added that to the crockpot along with drained diced tomatoes, a T of basil, a capful of dried garlic, about 2 T of taco seasoning, and some broccoli slaw. Then added in some egg noodles....

I let this cook on low for about 4 ½ hours. OMGOOOOD!!!!
... and the vegetable stock is so good for you!!!

While I was in the kitchen I saw Bruiser out the window up on the birdbath drinking the water. I ran to get my camera, but as usual he is uncooperative when it comes to me taking his picture... so just got this one of him on his way back to the house... see the "look" !!! LOL.

Now here's a great idea for those of you with bars or a place where you keep your wine! Put those old tools to work!

OMG this is hilarious!!!
