A salty wash of seasoning wafted through the air as I began my evening. It had been a good day; I made bread and zuppa! Soup. As I munched a sweet potato for lunch I noticed that a hawk was perched on my deck. A hawk in Kansas and it wasn’t a jay hawk! It’s curious what nature brings us when we open our eyes to witness it. It’s evening now and I smell my soup in the slow cooker almost done.
I made a ground turkey chili, with Penzy’s Chicken Spice Mix. It smells absolutely delicious and is making my stomach grumble. Making soup is one of my favorite things to make in my crockpot! Honestly, I take great creative liberties when crafting soup recipes. My step mother says that I have a knack for spice combinations and cooking. Here’s the recipe I made today. I call it Jerky Turkey Soup
Jerky Turky Soup
I can diced tomatoes
4-5 bunches fresh kale
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 can mixed vegetables
a handful of sweet potato chunks– cut thinly
1 lb ground turkey
1 tsp. Penzy’s chicken spice mix Chicken spice mix
After putting everything into the pot turn it onto the hottest setting for four hours.
Today packing ensued… EEK! Ha! Starting packing gradually, will make my transition easiest. After my surgery I will be staying elsewhere, just two months away so figured why not?
When I have a packing or cleaning drive it just takes over. I can decimate a room into boxes, SNAP!, just like Mary Poppins, who honestly was my hero growing up. How can you not love a lady who sings about spoonfuls of sugar and carries an umbrella? I quite fancy her, at least.
Have you seen the new Mary Poppins? The new rendition came out, I believe, last year or perhaps the year before, it was quite stellar! Bert’s singing penguins always get me. In my near future when I’m confined to bed for so long I might just take my friends from Mary Poppins’s along for the ride. Lord, knows I’m going to have a lot of time to fill IN BED— ALL DAY….
But, on the bright side, it will finally be fixed and hopefully my gait will return to normal and my hip/back will feel better. Alway’s something to be grateful for!
Till next time, my friends, have a blessed week!
