Far Guy offered to help me make vegetable beef soup. I used the last of what was in the freezer before my surgery and didn’t have time to make up a batch. When we shopped for groceries this week he offered to help if I located all the ingredients. I bought enough ingredients for two large dutch ovens full….the offer of my own personal sous chef was impossible to resist.
He peeled and chopped…I helped peel a bit with the peeler. I think he was surprised at the time involved in prep work. He said “I would rather help with Gumbo.” He handled all the heavy pans and followed directions quite nicely. Chance loves soup so when the house began to smell like soup he began to drool.
Far Guy thought that perhaps soup would perk me up. After supper my other baby brother called and said “You need to be sweeter.” So we all went to Dairy Queen.
