Allergies, Allergies…..and a Recipe for Soup

Can allergies make you feel tired?

Is that something that’s real?

Sleepy and convoluted?

‘Cuz that’s the way that I feel

Lacking  motivation

to accomplish the least little thing

Can’t even put the botta boom

in the proverbial botta bing

Although I did just make some vegetable soup

Maybe my spark will begin to recoup!


RECIPE for Vegetable soup made out of stuff that I had available:  Just threw it all together.   1/2 cup or so of chopped up onion, stalk of celery, a carrot, 1/2 of an orange pepper, clove of garlic.  Sauteed all that in a little  vegetable broth then threw in the rest of the leftover broth (about a cup).  Added in a cup or two of water, 1 cup of frozen peas,  1 cup of leftover green beans and a can of pinto beans.  For spices:  1/4 tsp paprika, 1/8 teaspoon turmeric; 1/4 tsp chili powder; 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder; 1/8 teaspoon onion powder; a few dashes of Italian seasoning  and 1/2 cup of leftover spaghetti sauce and, voile! there is soup.

Serving suggestion:  Topped each serving bowl with fresh chives right from my garden.  Easy to grow, prolific and pretty.

Sort of a therapeutic process – chopping and sauteing and making good use of bits and pieces.
