Can allergies make you feel tired?
Is that something that’s real?
Sleepy and convoluted?
‘Cuz that’s the way that I feel
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.
