Spent the Thanksgiving holiday and weekend in MS and got in lots of visiting and eating. The grandkids are growing like weeds and enjoyed playing with each other. I’m so proud of my kids and their spouses for being wonderful parents to my grandkids. I truly am blessed. Danny and I made the 3 hour trip back to AL today in the rain and, in preparation for the colder days ahead, we decided to put on a pot of soup.
Our favorite kind of soup is that made from leftovers stashed in the freezer for just this purpose. Tonight’s soup began with some leftover roast, potatoes, and carrots to which I added tomato sauce, corn, peas, and ROTEL. Rotel makes anything taste good! Wish I’d had some home-grown tomatoes and okra to throw into the mix. Man, I miss my garden since I came to AL. The black biting gnats here make it impossible to enjoy being outdoors in the summertime. Hey, gotta go check the cornbread. Smells like it’s almost done, too!
