The reason I have not posted for a week is not because I have not been cooking and eating. It is because I spend 6 days with my very best girl friend. She flew out from South Carolina to Las Vegas and I met her there. Then we went up to our place in Utah for the week. Girls only! We had a wonderful time and now I am home and refreshed and ready for another few weeks of cooking.
Before I left I made a soup of everything that was in the refrigerator. I think an error in preparation came when I combined both beef and chicken stocks because I had some left in both containers. It kind of muddied the taste. John ate it the next night (after I was gone) and put some sausages in it. He said it was much better that way.
