The week is over, kids are all starting to heal and Ma is dead on her feet.
Soooooo, we are going to a Mexican place we like and no cooking tonight...Now, if I wasn't so numb, i just might beable to decide what I want to eat other than a relaxing beverage to drink in peace and quiet

DH & I made a pot of vegetable beef soup earlier in the week. After 3 meals, all the meat was gone, but there was still all this wonderful broth with carrots, potatoes, green beans, etc...certainly too good to throw away.
So...even though he hates cabbage, my beloved cut up a cabbage for me last night and put it in with the remaining broth to cook. The potatoes and carrots were a bit undercooked before, and cooking the cabbage in with them worked out just right. I added another can of tomatoes and a little more S&P.
Today, I had the soup for lunch (so good), and froze the rest in serving sized containers. Sure is better than canned soup!
Personally, I think the broth is the key to really good soup, and that's something you just can't rush.
We get by with a little help from our friends

My parents have been visiting for the last few days, so we went to dinner on Friday night at a new restaurant that opened a few weeks ago. Our food was wonderful, but the service was awful. Very slow and disorganized. For dinner my dad and brother had prime rib with baked potatoes and my mom and I had shrimp battered with tempura batter. She had rice with hers and I was bad and had French fries. Dinner included: soup, salad, bread, main course, and dessert. Our total bill came to $103.00 and some change, which I thought was OK considering all the food that we had. I just wish that the service had been better.
