    Chicken soup tonight. I'm trying an experiment- I had a couple of leftover low-carb tortillas; I sliced them up and will add to the soup at the last minute and see if they make acceptable "noodles"...

    Interesting! Can't wait to hear the results. We are always looking for new low carb ideas.

    Was planning ribs and au gratin potatoes, but DH and DS are both sick. So I'm boiling up chicken and veggies and am making the most nutritious broth/soup I can with what I have on hand (which is quite a lot actually.) I love soup; you can throw all kinds of things in that wouldn't normally work together. I'm refusing to go to the store so tonight's soup has:

    (homegrown) chicken
    Carrots
    Garlic and onion,
    salt and pepper,
    a little cayenne
    Some banana peppers
    Cauliflower
    Broccoli
    Celery salt, rosemary, bay leaves
    I might throw in some quinoa or wild rice and okra...

    I'll debone that chicken in a little while... (Spell check REALLY wants that word debone to say Devine...) I'm looking for high vitamin C, high vitamin everything soup that they'll eat. DH will eat it, maybe DS will too... 1505944788221-1406965130.jpg

    Tonight my dinner is a bowl of cereal with almond milk. I'm going light tonight seeing how my Uncle will be here tomorrow night plus maybe over the weekend there will be more family so back to cooking meals.

    Yep, isn't fall weather great?? I always feel like cooking when the temps start to drop.
    Sooo, I went out to pick okra (just picked yesterday and there was more today!), and came in with okra, a small green bell pepper, a small orange bell pepper, fresh oregano and fresh basil. Threw it and small amounts of 4 kinds of rice and a little quinoa in the soup... It's all simmering... It smells sooo good!
    @Britesea , let us know how that goes. I almost always have tortillas here.

    Milkmansdaughter, I hate to say this but I don't like soup not even when I'm sick and the okra made it sound even worse. I got enough of okra when my family was here from Texas and had the Cajun night-slipped it right into the gumbo and told me it was jalapenos until after I got done eating.

    Don't like soup? Oh my ... we practically exist on soup - especially during the winter!

    Here too. Soup could be on the menu almost every meal and I'd be happy. And it's OK if you don't like it... More for me! :lol:
    I definitely wanted okra in. The ones I put in were very small and tender, but they have a lot of vitamins and help thicken soup. The soup is kinda spicy... Got a little heavy handed on the peppers, but DH and DS both like peppers so it was OK. Can't cull my family members when they get sick so I gotta feed 'em healthy. ;)
