Soup Time

November 11th, 2020 at 09:23 pm

Yeah, it's 45 degrees out, I've got wild rice in the cupboard, and a budget that needs a little help, so, as usual, it's soup time.  I love the Instant Pot wild rice soup I started making last winter, so will start a pot as soon as I get offline.

I'm trying very very hard to pay DD's tuition bill without moving money from her 529 plan or our savings.  I think I'll be short, but not by much.  And since they let me put it on the credit card with no additional charges, the cash back feature will repay it.  Trying hard for zero spending until the next card date rollover early next week.  So soup it is!

I went to my university office to work today; it's quiet as a tomb and not much more cheerful.  But I put the lamps on, turned on some music and got stuff done.  Unfortunately the kitchen was locked up, and my tempting casserole leftovers were not nearly as nice stone cold.  But we got through it.

    I love soup, but it’s definitely not soup weather here. It was in the 80’s today. The weather is supposed to turn a little cooler Monday. I sure hope so!

    I'm all about soup right now, too!

    Wild rice soup? Can you share the recipe? I am always on the lookout for new soup recipes.

    Hi Robin: This is the one I made. I love it. I didn't have poultry seasoning so used sage and thyme from the garden.

    Soup has to be a magical meal because there are so many variations! Fortunately DH loves soup year round. Sounds like an economical meal.

    Sorry about your cold leftovers. Bummer!
