Sugar Fox/Heaven/Mike/Bob ~ Rainbow ~ Sunday Football Scores :o( ~ Andy ~ Pepper Pot Soup

Good 37ยบ cloudy with a "chance of rain" morning.
Yesterday I went over to Jennifer's. She made a bunch of snacking foods. Mike barbecued chicken wings. Micol and Bob were there. We had a great gab-fest! That Song Dog pup, Sugar Fox, is growing and so adorable!

Heaven is such a sweet and beautiful girl..

Keeper the Australian Shepherd was his usual friendly sweet self and so was Bridey the cat. (Hmmm... no pic. Darn.) But ... here's Mike and Bob guarding the barbecue..

While outside there was this rainbow! OMG.... it was so low!

Got home about 5pm. Didn't cook as I had plenty to much at Jennifer's. Cooking tonight!

Pepper Pot Soup Day


Pepperpot soup, also made in a thicker stew version, is a hearty beef and potato soup (originally beef tripe was used). The soup includes onions, bell peppers, other vegetables selected by the cook, and ground black pepper. Two U.S. presidents—George Washington and FDR—chose pepper pot as their most requested soup recipe. One story says that the soup was created from inexpensive ingredients during the Revolutionary War to feed the starving Continental Army. It is also called Philadelphia Pepper Pot Soup after an early 19th century painting by John Lewis Krimmel titled Pepper-Pot: A Scene in the Philadelphia Market. The painting depicts a street vendor selling the soup.

Campbells made a version for many years, but it was discontinued in 2010 in favor of higher-profitability soups (see the discussion here). It contained many ingredients including stock, beef tripe, carrots and macaroni.

Here is a good and easy recipe:
