This ‘N That

15 10 2011

It is Saturday morning.  I have been sick a few days this week, but am much better today.  This has been a short cold…thanks to whoever has been praying for me.  It has slowed me down on my work however. I have not gotten much done for the exhibit which starts 2 weeks from YESTERDAY.

So this morning I am dyeing some fabric since a customer will be in the area next week and needs some.  And since I am dyeing, I am dyeing a special order scarf.  At the same time I am trying out some new soup recipes.  I fixed a boneless turkey roast yesterday and my usual recipe for leftovers is turkey tetrazzini which we love, but is that all there is?  So this a.m. I was googling for recipes and came upon two that I decided to try.  One is turkey barley soup.  While DH doesn’t particularly care for barley (like how much taste is in the stuff anyway?), I made a small batch of it to try.  It is very good.  The other one is a creamy turkey soup with rice in it.  And while it doesn’t call for wild rice, I put a handful of it in with the Basmati rice.  I usually keep wild rice cooked and in the freezer for a certain wild rice bread that I adore.  I was really wanting to make a chicken and wild rice soup this week, but didn’t have the requisite green onions and pimientos to make it, so I scratched the idea.  The turkey rice soup was the perfect opportunity to throw in some wild rice.  There is nothing like wild rice.  I love it.  My husband will get a soup smorgasbord tonight for supper.  Maybe I need to make some homemade bread too, eh?

This afternoon my plan is to get a new mixed media piece stitched.  I planned on getting two pieces collaged this week in preparation for stitching, but due to how AWful I felt, I only got one done.  Now I need to stitch it before I can start any painting and drawing on it.

Ummm…trying the new creamy turkey and rice soup now…delicious!

Kathy, I haven’t had a cold in 6 years by taking 1000mg of Vit C each morning with my multiple vitamin. I started doing this when I taught elementary art with 950 students. It works! I enjoyed reading your post and your ideas of fixing the soups. What a way to get two things accomplished at the same time. Would love to see photos of the work you a completed as the soup simmered.
