I remember when

  • when I was growing up
  • in the fall we had a lot of hearty soups
  • as there as so much to do
  • bringing in the harvest=
  • it was a basic vegtable
  • soup but had a lot of interesting
  • vegtables beyond potatoes and carrots
  • mother mixed and matched with no qualms
  • about how it all added up
  • she was using all the small veggies
  • that required little prep beyond a good wash
  • as tthe tiny veggies were hard to keep during
  • the winter but easy
  • to use
  • some times there was left over
  • meat to add-
  • mother did not have the extra time
  • to fuss with any meat not already cooked
  • we had a wood stove so it went out
  • while she was cleaning up the garden
  • and also on some of the nights when the soup
  • was nearly done
  • she would poach each of us an egg
  • right in the soup=
  • this was always a wonderful treat
  • and we had home made
  • bread to go with the soup
  • no two soups turned out the same
  • but they were all delicious
  • huggles from Meme
