Tuesday I was pulling stuff out of the freezer and found a bag of turkey bones. Put them in the large Crock*Pot filled with water, some garlic salt, pepper, a head of garlic cloves, a little olive oil and turned on low for 10 hours. Let it cool and strained out the bones. Then the stock went back into the pot along with a quarter cup of each:

... and some of each of these..... and on low for a few hours to hydrate all the veggies...

I think today I will add in a can of cream of chicken soup to 'cream' it up.

At noon yesterday I met up with Jeannie, Dee, Kathy, and Jen at the Elks for a chat and a glass of wine.

Eric, the cook, makes the BEST BLTs in the world! I had a salad with mine....

We had a GREAT time gabbing and wine-ing!
Speaking of wine, Dee sent me this:

The Law Enforcement/Fire luncheon was yesterday also, at the Golf Club. Was not in the mood to go. Probably a good thing, as I got an email from Jim saying when he got there not one parking place was available. He left. Bill didn't go, he had a doc appointment. Dale is being escort for the special Olympics torch carry from the east coast to the west coast. Don't know about anyone else.
Something funny about my cat.. Bruiser was being very nosey when I was making some iced coffee yesterday. After I got all the ingredients in the glass he wanted to see/sniff it. I set the glass on the floor and he DRANK some! Nut. My cat likes iced coffee!!! 
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

That is the funniest water bed picture... never saw it coming.

To "cream up" soups I sometimes use either leftover mashed potatoes or cream cheese.

Oregon Sue said...

Yes, both of those, potatoes and cheese, work well! xo

LOL I am cracking up at the wine bed! What a disaster if there was a leak. lol

Yes, I add cream of chicken to my chicken n dumplins too. Here I thought it was something I made up and later read that Paula Dean adds it to hers too.

Lunch looks so yummy!

I sure didn't like what that article said about foods not to eat of you want to lose weight. Who woudda thought? I don't need to lose weight anywhere but my tummy but don't know how to do that! :(
