Thank Goodness!

After my morning of cooking up two different batches of soup, I was anxious to see what Ralph thought of his and also to taste my own.

Of course, that was the day Ralph decided to sleep most of the day to get rid of his cold.   😦  So I had to wait and wait.  The good thing is that when he tasted it he pronounced it “delicious!”  Since I don’t taste his, I’m never sure how I’ve done with seasoning.  I put a bit of salt in it and didn’t want to go over board, but he said it was seasoned perfectly.  I was excited!! 🙂

Now when it comes to my soup…

It’s been a Long time since I’ve had chicken soup.  To the best of my memory, this tasted exactly like chicken soup…and a very good version of chicken soup.  I was really happy with it and it was certainly easy.  As it sat a bit, the rice plumped up and was a great addition to the soup.  I will definitely make this again.  Oh, and I’ll make Ralph’s again, too because he was happy!  He’s feeling better today, and I like to think it’s because of the soup! 😉

I spent Thursday morning doing what??

Working on the FREE apples and pears that Gail gave me.  Looks like I’m about to perform surgery!

Look at the size of these pears!!  Good grief, they were Huge!  With all of the fruit, my standard Crock Pot was filled!  Hope no one is tired of hearing about crock pot apples.  They are delicious and they will certainly be a plus in the budget this week since as I said, they were FREE!  I’m always conscious of my food dollars at work, but I never actually figure anything out.  Think I’m going to start doing that so I can figure just how successful I am.  Any free fruit you want to send my way feel…FREE!! 😉

I finally got out to get a few shots of the Fall leaves.

This is across the street from our house.

This is one of my favorites!  It’s always amazing to me that certain trees are always the prettiest.  This is the house next to mine. I love it when I get to drive by.

So that’s it…I’m off to do some more sorting and packing.  I promised myself that I would and I’m serious!!

Happy Friday!!

  1. those trees are lovely, fran! thanks for the photos as our trees are definitely into the “losing leaves” stage. the positive is that you are walking on a blanket of coloured leaves, at times…still beautiful!
    glad ralph is feeling better – enjoy your weekend, and happy organizing!

    • Thanks, Cathy! I slacked a bit yesterday on my project. I would like to be almost finished by the end of the weekend. Keeping my fingers crossed on that!! Glad you like the photos! I need to get more while they still look good. Have a great day!!

  2. That’s definitely the hard part about cooking for meat eaters! I never know if I’m putting in enough seasoning! It looks like he was happy with it though! 🙂

    Have a fantastic weekend, Fran! Enjoy the fall weather!

  3. I love those red leaves! It always reminds me of fire… in a good way, not a forest fire way. 🙂

  4. The trees are SO pretty right now! Glad the soup is doing the trick. Chicken soup is the best!
