this and that

I can’t believe that my baby is 9 months old; he even has 4 teeth to prove it!  We walked across the road, and quick got a few pics the other day.  Cline started off with a nose dive right in the wheat stubble, but the large lolly pop quickly soothed his tears!  (Hudson was very concerned that HE would get to finish the sucker, because “Cline’s just a baby”)

On a different note, I got this recipe for Zucchini Soup from my grandma.  I modified it slightly, and made it the other night.  Seriously, I think it was the best soup that I’ve ever had – it was so good! *disclaimer – clint did not agree*  Oh, and sorry that there are no pictures of it – I ate it all!

Zucchini Soup

1 large onion
2 cloves garlic
4 c. chunked zucchini
2 c. chicken broth
1 t. salt
1/2 t. celery seed
pepper
1 c. milk
1 T. cornstarch
1 pound sausage cooked ( I used turkey sausage)
fresh basil, parsley, oregano, rosemary to taste (I probably used 1-2 c. fresh herbs – I love basil!)

Cook first 7 ingredients in large sauce pan until tender, about 30 minutes.  Add fresh herbs.  Blend in blender in two batches.  ( I tried it in one, and the soup came shooting out my lid onto my counters, cupboards, me…..trust me, don’t try it)  Pour back in saucepan.  In a small bowl with lid, shake milk and cornstarch.  Whisk into soup.  Stir in sausage.  Cook and stir until soup boils and thickens.  Serve with Parmesan cheese.

  1. Those are so Cute and bright! I love them. I tried the sucker thing with crew and it was SOOOo messy but a lot of fun. Your sucker is much cuter. 🙂 Oh and the soup looks great, I may have to try it. (I went throught the dd4 and marked the recipes I wanted to try…most were yours. 🙂 )
