Carabba's Chicken Soup. I did make one change. I only used ONE Tablespoon of white pepper otherwise I knew it would be way to hot for our taste :) When I freeze soups I don't put in pasta if the recipe calls for it. We don't care for the texture of frozen/thawed pasta.. It takes no time at all to add a little pasta when I want to pull a soup from the freezer to use. The other thing that works for me when freezing soups, stocks, or any liquid's is to first freeze them in loaf pans before vacuum sealing them. They stack much nicer in the freezer this way saving room for lots more :)
I went to bed last night with the mindset that I needed a me day to sew, scrapbook, or read something!!! But when my feet hit the floor this morning I knew I would never enjoy some me time with so many big projects hanging over my head :) It use to be that I could do things like clean out the pantry, catch up on filing and things of that sort when I had the grands for the day. Those days are over now that they all want to help, they LOVE having jobs!!! Big jobs have to happen on days that I don't have one or more of them
As I was loading the freezer yesterday Kara ask me what I was doing in Papaws garage? Just putting away food sweetheart. She informed me Papaw wouldn't want me in his garage, she and Papaw worked hard getting it cleaned up!!! She was right of course, they had spent most of Sunday piddling around out there while I fought Ivy in one of the beds I am revamping. She also informed me I needed to finish getting the weeds (ivy) pulled out as she needs to do her job. Papaw has promised when Nanny finishes up he and Kara will tackle the wood mulch pile to spread in the bed. She is looking forward to filling the wheel barrel.
Well now, just as I was ready to hit the post button I got a call from DD#1, Tyler had a sore throat, needed to be picked up from school, gezzz. Days never seem to go as planned :) On the way home he shared with me he thought he had fever in his throat, ice cream might help cool it down. Ha After polishing off an ice cream cone he has had a nice pile of cookies and a bag of popcorn. Hummmmm :)
