Tomato Soup is Splendid
Tags: , ,
.
By Vanessa Richins
.
I don’t ever recall having tomato soup when I was growing up.
I was missing out!
Tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich is a warm and hearty treat for a wintry day, yet still not too heavy for a summer meal.
What’s your favorite kind of tomato soup? I’ve found some lovely recipes to share today. There’s even a recipe for a cake using tomato soup.
Chilled Tomato, Peach and Ginger Soup
This recipe was adapted by the Associated Press from a cookbook called “The Modern Vegetarian” by Maria Elia. I’m a big fan of ginger - it brings a distinctive tang to a dish. It will balance with the sweet of the peach. Since this soup is chilled, it’s especially suited for summer.
Egyptian Tomato Soup
Worth the Whisk has reconstructed a tomato soup that the author ate while in Egypt. It features chili powder, paprika, lime juice and pimientos. I’ve never been to Egypt, so I will sample this soup in the meantime.
Green Tomato Soup
Here’s yet another use for those green tomatoes. I wonder how it tastes with the cinnamon and cloves that are suggested.
Warhol’s Tomato Soup Cake
Feasting on Art has a nice article talking about Warhol and his Soup Can Series of art. At the end, they give a recipe for Tomato Soup Cake, which sounds intriguing. It was described as being similar to a carrot cake, so it’s natural that it was covered with a cream cheese frosting.

Good Morning.

I am in a Happy mood this morning, how about you. Just being able to be out of bed and able to help someone today should make us happy
.
This below is an email that I received from Sara's mom yerterday morning, and that did make me smile. Dad

.
While you were at your convention, Oreo was busy showing the judges what he has been trained to do and do so well. He came home with a few ribbons, including two Championship ones. I'd say you both had productive weekends and need a little rest today. Enjoy the morning watching all the birds at your feeder and than you and Prince deserve a nap together. ...Sara's Mom

Congratulations! You just had your first visitor from Saint Kitts and Nevis

It is past time for to have our Sumtra bold coffee and also check on Sara. Misty and Oreo. There has been a lot of excitement at Sara's Dog Training blog the last few days.

Choose Thou For Me
.
Thy will dear Lord, I pray, not mine
For I could never choose aright;
My future path I cannot see
With this my dim and earthly sight.
Choose Thou for me, Oh Lord I ask
Whatever seemeth good to Thee
For I would rather rest in faith
And like a child, just trustful be.
I am afraid that I would choose
the smoothest path and bluest sky
So I would never, 'midst the storm
Hear that sweet whisper, "It is I."
And I would ask, I know right well,
A life without one single care;
Thus I would lose the soothing balm
Of coming oft to Thee in prayer.
A life without one cloud to hide
The brightness of that azure sky
Without one heart-pang or a grief,
And n'er one bitter, helpless cry.
But Thou, oh Lord, Thou knowest all
Thou knowest what I need the best;
I'll take with joy the pleasant things,
And Thy sweet will shall choose the rest.

I hope that all is well with you this morning.

The Plain Man and the Clown

A face painted with a perpetual smile,
A baggy suit,
Big floppy shoes,
Bags of tricks,
And three rings to go ‘round in.

A plain man with smiles and tears,
A suit that fits,
Sturdy shoes,
Work to do,
And a clear path to walk.

Ponder this, for to make a choice you’re bound.
Will you be the plain man or the clown?
By Mary L White

The Gift of Friendship

Friendship is a priceless gift
That cannot be bought or sold.
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold
For gold is cold and lifeless
It can neither see nor hear.
And in the time of trouble
It is powerless to cheer.
It has no ears to listen,
No heart to understand,
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand
So when you ask God for a gift,
Be thankful if He sends, Not diamonds, pearls or riches,
But the love of real true friends
.

Touch of the Master's Hand
,,

Twas battered and scarred, and the auctioneer: Thought it scarcely worth his while
To waste much time on the old violin, But held it up with a smile:
"What am I bidden, good folk," he cried,"Who'll start the bidding for me?" "
A dollar, a dollar"; then "Two!" "Only two?Two dollars, and who'll make it three?
Three dollars, once; three dollars, twice; Going for three -
"But no, From the room, far back, a grayhaired man
Came forward and picked up the bow; Then, wiping the dust from the violin,
And tightening the loose strings,
He played a melody pure and sweet As a caroling angel sings.
The music ceased, and the auctioneer, With a voice that was quiet and low,
Said: "What am I bid for the old violin?" And he held it up with the bow.
"A thousand dollars, and who'll make it two?Two thousand! and who'll make it three
Three thousand, once, three thousand, twice, And going, and gone," said he.
The people cheered, but some of them cried."We do not quite understand,
What changed its worth," Swift came the reply:
"The touch of the master's hand."
And many a man with life out of tune, And battered and scarred with sin,
Is auctioned cheap to the thoughtless crowd, Much like the old violin.
A "mess of pottage," a glass of wine; A game - and he travels on.
He is "going" once, and "going" twice; He's "going" and almost "gone."
But the Master comes, and the foolish crowd
Never can quite understand
The worth of a soul and the change that's wrought
By the touch of the Master's hand.

Here is a little thought for today.

'' That's all a man can can hope for during lifetime--- to set an example---and when he is dead, to be an inspiration for history ''
.
This was spoken by Willian McKinley, the 25th president of the United States. Taken by Dad from the Knoxville News Sentinel.

.I am enjoying this beautiful fall weather so much. it has been the best here in East Tennessee in many years. We want to be more thankful to our heavenly father for all that he sends us. It is a great joy me to sit at my tomato garden and look out at all of nature, a miracle if there was every one.
