Remember right before fall actually began, I started my soup season? But when the actual fall equinox hit, I quickly purchased some celery and carrots and some freezable quart containers to officially begin my soup exploration.
Needless to say with all that's going on right now, making soup is the furthest thing from my mind, but it doesn't mean that I don't actually crave soup. So what did I do? I kindly asked my parents' next door neighbor if she minded making us a chicken and vegetable soup with noodles. I gave her all of my ingredients and then she sneaked in some of her own. Plus made two pans of corn bread!
In the midst of these trying times, I'm realizing more and more how to accept help when it is offered. A person can only do but so much. So when people ask, "Is there anything I can do?", say Y-E-S!
My neighbor asked for my mother's largest pot and let me tell you, that pot was so full of soup that I had to bring over more pots to transfer the soup so that we could lift the initial pot off the stove! But was it good? Oh my goodness, yes, yes, yes!
|In the end, I put 6 quarts in the freezer and kept 1 quart out to continue eating.|
Thanking God every day for these acts of kindness expressed by those both near and far. :-)
