In a Goofy Mood Today

It’s official, I’ve decided that 2011 will be better than 2010!  For me personally, it won’t take much.  But that’s a long, boring story.  I’d rather share …

Today’s Joke

Daisy the cow says to her friend Dolly:  “I was artificially inseminated today.”

“I don’t believe you!” says Dolly.

“It’s true,” says Daisy.  “No bull.”

A Recipe

Since everyone has leftovers at this time, here’s a great soup recipe to use them.

Leftover Game Soup

2 pounds leftover game meat

1 can green beans

1 can V-8 juice – small or 1 can sliced, diced or whole tomatoes

1 pkg. frozen peas

4 stalks celery, chopped

2 small onions, chopped

2 medium potatoes, quartered

1 bay leaf

2 tsp. parsley flakes

Brown meat.  Combine 6 cups of water and all the ingredients in a slow cooker.  Cook 4 to 6 hours.  Remove bay leaf.*   Season to taste.  Serve.

Note: You can add any other veggies and spices.  Add the additional spices during the last 30 minutes of slow cooking (otherwise, the flavors are cooked out of the food).

For Italian flavored soup, I add 1 to 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning.

For Mexican flavored soup, I add 1 to 2 teaspoons taco seasoning.

* Remove the bay leaf before serving because children and pets have a problem gagging on this.
