Quick And Easy..............

O.K. there I was. Having just escaped an assassination attempt by a deranged, kibble deprived cat.

Once the area was secured, the cat locked in the closet, and my heart-beat returned to normal, I remembered that I HAD been hungry before things went to hell in a hand basket.

I went to the pantry and found that ol' mother Hubbard didn't have anything on the W household. I did find a few odds and ends which I threw together and made myself a pretty good soup. If I may, I would like to share the recipe with you.


Sometimes I measure, sometimes I don't. Mostly it depends on what I feel like or how it looks. So be warned.

1/2 lb. Pork breakfast sausage links

1 Lb. sliced fresh mushrooms

11/2 cups sliced onions

28 oz beef broth (give or take)

Crusty Italian or french bread

1 cup or so of shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook the sausage until it is no longer pink, drain pan, cut sausage into about 1/2 inch lengths. Return to pan along with the sliced onions and mushrooms. Cook until tender. (4-6 mins) Stir in beef broth, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered until heated through.(another 4-6 minutes)Pour into ovenproof bowls, float slices of bread on top of soup, cover bread with the shredded cheese, broil until cheese melts.

Soup's on!

Or as Granny W. was known to yell: "Ya'll get to the table before I throw it to the dogs!!!!!!!" -grin-

Barkley tried to push me aside to get to the recipe first.


word verification. aniason. Did you know that the IQ test sites are staying that Obama's IQ is 125. Jennifer Aniston, as well, on the same sites, is said to have an IQ of 118. Boy, isn't that impressive.

Our President's IQ is 7 points higher than a blond (I can't call her an actress) who spends $30,000 a month on facials and waxing, and dates John Mayer.

Ya know, there is a certain cat I would LOVE to introduce Barkley to.....-grin-

If our El Presidente would ONLY spend $30,000 a month, I would be a happy camper!

Tomorrow's recipe will be MUCH better.
