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!
