Finally Returning

Wow! I have been gone for a long time!  Isn't it funny how life has a way of just moving on? 
 Let's just all yell really loud: STOP WORLD, SLOW DOWN!!!
Here I am at home and 2013-2014 school year starts Tomorrow!
 Where did the summer go?  Is it just me?
Let me back track just a bit and share some pics from my daughters summer job! She was a camp counselor at a wonderful place called Camp Don Lee.  Let me just say how very proud I'm of her!  She had one week off from school and started this great new adventure!  You should Google this camp for more information.  It's a Methodist camp that is also a sailing camp located in Arapahoe,NC.

I will post more summer pics later.

I hope my blog friends are all doing well, I hope to reconnect with you all soon!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!

Cauliflower Soup

Hey everyone sorry I have been away soooo long!!
You know how it is.  Life has a way of creeping up on you.  So much to do, so little time.

I tried a new recipe a couple of weeks ago.  I thought it was really yummy.
1 small chopped onion
1 table spoon butter
4 stalks chopped celery
2-3 chopped carrots
2 cups chicken stock 
1-2 cups of milk
Saute the vegetables and butter until just tender. 

 Add a bag or cauliflower pieces or 1 head in pieces to the pot.
2 cups of chicken stock or until just covered
Bring to boil.
Salt and pepper to taste.

 Add milk and reduce heat. The cauliflower will soften quickly.  
Looking good!
Much of this is not exact.  You can adjust the amount of liquid according to how much you are wanting to serve.
You could also add cheese if you like for garnish.  A hard crusty bread would take this over the top!!

 Thanks so much for stopping by. 
 Have a great week!
