Well, at least it was somewhat better than expected but if the GOP controls both House and Senate, I think we’re screwed. sigh^^
I made 2 versions of Tortilla Soup on Tuesday. One with chicken and now vegetarian. What was so great was I made most of it with our own pantry supplies. I used our own onions, garlic, corn from the freezer, my canned tomato sauce, and one jar of the pressure canned black beans. Wow was it good! I used a vegetarian bullion to give the broth a little more depth. Then I fried up some corn tortillas to make crispy strips on top. It was delicious.
This morning I cut up the giant pumpkin I bought at Apple Hill and have that baking. I’m going to puree it and freeze it for pies and pumpkin bread. It’s a very large pumpkin but I’m not sure once it’s baked and pureed how much it will make. Next, I’m cooking the last of the russet potatoes for mashed potatoes which I’ll freeze. Yesterday I made double-stuffed potatoes I baked 14 potatoes and ended up with 14 halves. I mound the potatoes with the filling and that’s why I only end up with 14 halves.
Today is a home day and tomorrow I’ll swim. My son is taking the Santa Fe for the weekend so I won’t go down to the pool on Saturday.
A couple of the Youtubers I watch had just put in Azure orders and showed what they got. Azure is like a buying club that you order from and it’s brought to a drop off place and then you show up and help unload the truck and get your order. I’ve wanted to try it for a few years now so it seemed timely to do it. I prefer always to buy in bulk because 1. I hate stores, and 2. I hate thinking about what I need and would rather have 10 lbs of oats or whatever so I don’t need to think about it for 6 months. So I’ll see how the drop off goes. Any readers out there that use Azure?
