It's all about the soup

Modern medicine, amazing isn't it. Can you just see your grandfathers face if you told him to get a new knee? My pepere already thought we were all from another world,this would surely put him over the edge.

Here he is with his therapist Jamie and Willem checking on his flexibility. The goal is 130 degrees. Not a problem, he has surpassed that and is heading for new territory. And to what do we own this miracle to?? Great surgeons? Above average hospital care?Caring therapist? Well they did their part,but, I think it was all about my soup.

You doubt me??? Then you just have to try this soup and see if it doesn't make you feel on top of the world.......Really! Every one involved in Jiggy's care has told me the more weight he loses the better his recovery will be. In some cases the body takes up to 24 months to heal completely,so,we could see improvement for the next 2 years. Soup has played an important role in our everyday activities through most winters ,but especially this year. Everyone has had changes in there lives lately and I truly believe soup is the crutch we need to lean on.
This soups takes no fancy steps and can be made in a jiffy.

2 TABLESPOONS BUTTER (no salt)
1 LARGE ONION
1 POUND OF CARROTS
1 PEELED LARGE SWEET POTATO
1 PEELED LARGE BAKING POTATO
1 HEAD OF CAULIFLOWER
2QTS OF WATER OR VEGGIE BROTH
SALT AND PEPPER TO TASTE
MINCED FRESH DILL
1 CUP OF SOUR CREAM

Put everything in a pot a (not the sour cream) and simmer till everything is tender. Puree 1/2 or all the veggies Return to the pot .Add the sour cream and stir to blend,heat to serving temp and season if necessary with salt and pepper. A dollop of sour cream and an additional sprinkle of dill when serving is up to you.

You'll have about a gallon of soup,so,pass it around. I sell my soups in the winter time but, this one is going to an elderly neighbor. She's my #1 taster. Hope to get back soon. Have so much to share but, my schedule is crazy right now. Miss you all.....................said the hobbit

I just had to pop back over and tell you we just finished a dinner of your fantastic soup!

It is delicious! And there is no doubt in my mind it has to be very good for us!

And an added bonus - it smells heavenly while it is simmering.

Thank you for sharing! This will be on the menu again and again!

So funny - my word verification is 'fulnes' and I thought that was especially appropriate because I am definitely stuffed!
