Still Under the Weather

Cold getting worse but not feeling too bad.

Worked on mug rugs for Quilting Gallery's Mug Rug Swap.  I like the positive, negative look of the block.  Hopefully I can finish them today.

I'm going to make my all time favorite soup today.  Just thinking about it makes me feel better.  Here's the recipe.


1lb.      Ground Turkey ( you can use beef if you want)
1/2 t.   garlic salt
1/4 t.   garlic powder
1/4 t.   pepper
2          stalks celery, chopped
2          16oz. cans kidney beans, undrained
1           28 oz. can diced tomatoes
1           28 oz. can of water
1/2      head cabbage, chopped (you can us coleslaw mix if you are in a hurry)
4  t.      beef broth, granules
1/2 c.   Instant rice

In a Dutch oven, brown turkey.  Add all ingredients except rice, bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 1 hour.  Add rice and cook till rice is done.

This soup is even better the next day.

Have a quilty day....Cat

I'm sorry you're having a tough time with that cold. Hope you feel better soon.

Love the two color blocks! And your recipe sounds delicious and perfect for when you aren't feeling well.

I hope you feel better soon! I really love the blocks, the color alone should make you feel better - like having your own sunshine! The soup sounds delicious!
