Copping out

I am sick…

My original plan was to talk apples, as its apple picking season.

Then, I wanted to write what I couldn't fit about beer from the beer & wine article I did for Worcester Magazine.

Then I ended up being sick today (Thursday). I didn't even make it to the rescue barn as I planned as… um… I didn't want to infect anyone and couldn't just duck behind a tree for what I was doing.

I did keep nummy ham soup down. After a 3 hour long nap under 5 blankets and in winter flannel pjs.

Oh - and I finally got my checks from the trade food magazines that I work for! That's food news.

But… something foodie for you:

Crock Pot Ham Soup (Italian-ish Style)

(There are many styles of this soup, from barbeque to southwestern to southern. It's one of those cupboard cleansing soups.)

1 Ham Steak
Leftover pepperoni slices, quartered
1 (14oz) can Campbells tomato soup
1 (14oz) can vegetable broth
1 (27 oz) can seasoned Kale
1 (16 oz) can black beans
1 chopped onion
4-5 smashed garlic cloves
oregano, basil, thyme, salt, pepper to season

Change around the greens and seasoning and beans, and you get your different versions. Yay creativity.

Throw everything in the crock pot on High while you take a nap to get over your illness. Serves 4. Enjoy.

Now… good night… I have a review that I will type tomorrow. (I promise, Doreen!)
