I’m still here! Still movin’ down the path, still traveling forward toward my November destinations. I wanted to drop a post in here to let you know I haven’t dropped off the edge…yet. As you will remember from such posts as this one, I am in the midst of preparing for my youngest son’s wedding next Saturday, as well as Thanksgiving for approx. 40 people the following week.
So, how’s it all going you may ask? Pretty good, all 160 cupcakes, and 5 layers of cutting cake are baked and in the freezer awaiting decoration at the end of this week. Today is major house/yard sprucing up day, although I’m thinking of waiting on planting the little beauties I purchased yesterday due to a short cold snap approaching Tuesday morning.I have a list with every day of the week written down, and all the tasks to accomplish therein.
Was not sure how the Fibro would act during all this, and other than my hand joints hurting like hell at times, the ol’ body is holding up pretty well. Oh, and I think I have a sinus infection. My head, face, and eyes have hurt since Monday, and I have that ‘underwater’ smell in my nose. Hate having to take the time out of my busy days to get a prescription, but if this doesn’t clear by Wednesday I’ll probably have to.
Needless to say, I have not had the time for a recipe with photos, so I will drag one up from the past. Meanwhile, I’ll just keep “movin’ down the highway”! PEACE!
~’Southwestern’ Leftover Turkey Soup~
TURKEY TORTILLA SOUP
~2 cans chicken stock ~2 diced onions
~1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
~1 bunch green onions, diced
~1 can diced tomatoes
~2 cans Ortega green chilies, chopped
~cumin,salt,pepper,red pepper flakes
~shredded cheddar cheese
Cook carcass, stock, and enough water to fill pot for several hours on low until stock is flavorful and meat falls off bone.
Strain bones out of stock and pick through to save meat pieces. Return broth and meat to pot. Add next 6 ingredients and add seasonings to taste. Simmer for 30 minutes so flavors mix all through soup. Serve with chips and cheese sprinkled on top of soup.
