It’s Monday! That means it’s time for Lisa’s Manic Monday meme
What’s the longest you’ve ever waited in line? I’d have to say it was probably at Disneyland in Japan. The lines there were pretty long! I’ve been lucky at Disneyland and Disneyworld in the states…never really had to wait too long!
It’s been said that, “The best things in life are free.” Do you think this is true? Why or why not? Luther and Janet said so, so it must be true The best thing in life is fun…and fun can be had relatively cheaply in some instances. Of course…real fun for me is taking pictures, and that can get a bit expensive. Still…a walk through the woods is free
If you could go back in time and re-live one day in your life, which day would you choose and why? I’d choose the Christmas eve I spent with Brian…and I’d not do it. It was demeaning, had bad karma and long lasting consequences.

I woke up Sunday morning wanting to make soup. For some reason, it was going to include cube steak, salted & peppered and seared on both sides, then cut into very small pieces. It also included an onion, some celery, about 10 carrots, a handful of chestnuts (yes!), one each Knorr’s beef and veggie bouillon, one small can of Rotel diced tomatoes with lime & cilantro (was going to use regular diced tomatoes, but forgot to buy that), about 3 cups of V8, 6 cups of water and 1/2 package of Pennsylvania Dutch Homestyle Egg Noodles.
Here’s how I did it:
Sear the cube steak, both sides, til not pink, in a big soup pot (I used a bit of peppery bacon fat, about 2 tsps). Take it out, and set aside.
Saute chopped onions and celery in the same soup pot (adding a bit more peppery bacon fat, like a teaspoon or so), until soft.
Cut the meat into small pieces and when the onion/celery mixture is done, add the meat; also the tomatoes, bouillons, carrots, V8 and water. Simmer for 45 minutes or so til the carrots are done.
Add the chestnuts, simmer about 5 minutes or so
Turn the heat up to a boil, add the noodles and cook til the noodles are done, and serve!
As you can see, it turned out pretty thick, more like a stew than a soup. But that’s ok, cause the taste is all that counts!
OMG was it good!
