Recipe Wednesday

Haven't been doing much...we did pull an Ed Dray (love ya Ed!) yesterday when we went to 3 Banana's for lunch, closed on Tuesdays!  So we stopped in at Belle's Bistro and had a salad and sandwich.

This morning I watered my plants and pulled one tomato because it just looked pitiful!  The days are getting hotter and the tomatoes don't like it.  Jim putzed around for a bit outside.  We took Boo for a walk and then stayed inside for the next few hours.  We both read our books, Jim finished The Thief by Clive Cussler and I started My Beef With Meat by Rip Esselstyn.  Jim napped for a bit while I checked my eyelids for leaks on the Lazyboy.

Late afternoon we had a wild thunderstorm roll through. Power went off several times but all is quiet now.

For dinner we had Minestrone Soup and corn muffins

1 onion chopped

2-3 cloves garlic, crushed/minced

1 1/2 cups celery chopped, 3 ribs maybe
