Get well soup!!!!!

I love a bowl full goodness and this soup serves up just that- pure goodness!

I love a good soup and when you are sick (and tired of chicken noodle soup) this is the best- sauté garlic and onions in a bit of olive oil and add chopped cabbage, carrots, celery & a diced potato. Next, simmer in vegetable or chicken stock. Season with dill. salt & pepper. When the vegetables become tender but still have a bit of crunch and are almost ready, add a bit of frozen okra, peas and fresh parsley. (It will stay nice and bright green!) When serving,  squeeze a half of a lemon over each bowl of soup + a pinch of cayenne pepper and ENJOY the goodness!

Thanksgiving in Florida

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday & my house is where we all congregate.. Every year it is around 14- 25 + people for our feast! We all go around the table and express why we are thankful!

Our menu is usually the same every year- We roast at least 2 turkeys after I brine them, my husband makes his delicious sausage stuffing, we have green bean casserole, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, mashed potatoes with mother's gravy, my famous cranberry sauce, and the girls bake pies- pumpkin, chocolate pecan & apple crumb.
