Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup

Cool fall temperatures and the leaves are falling fast now. If Jerry doesn't blow the leaves off the driveway daily, we can't even find the pavement! That's the pleasure/curse of living in the woods.. but I'm a happy camper, holing up in my "hollow tree" makes me feel like making a pot of soup! I've seen several versions of this one on Pinterest, I actually combined two recipes. We had it last night as a main dish with slices of buttered rye bread, delicious!

Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup

makes 6 servings
2 (14 oz) cans fire roasted diced tomatoes, with juice
1 cup finely diced celery
1 cup finely diced carrots
1 cup finely diced onions
1 tsp dried oregano
1 T dried basil
4 cups chicken broth
½ bay leaf
½ cup flour
1 cup Parmesan cheese
½ cup butter
1 1/2 cups evaporated milk
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper

Add tomatoes, celery, carrots, chicken broth, onions, oregano, basil, and bay leaf to your soup pot. Simmer until veges are tender, about an hour. 

Make a roux by melting butter in skillet and adding flour. Stir constantly with a whisk for 3-4 minutes, then stir in several ladles of hot soup. Add back to soup pot and bring to boil to thicken soup. Add Parmesan cheese, evaporated milk, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Serve with slices of your favorite hot bread!

Please keep those who are facing Hurricane Sandy in your thoughts and prayers today, such a dangerous storm and it affects so many.

What's Next Mother Nature?

Our thoughts and prayers are with residents along the East coast that are facing the effects of Hurricane Sandy. So many states affected and Sandy's fury is still ongoing this morning with more rain, high winds and snow. Watching the news this morning and we can see the devastation. If you've ever been in a flood or evacuation, you know the utter fear they are feeling right now as they are desperate to find a safe place to ride out the storm.

We lived on Lake McQueeney in South Texas in 1998 when heavy rains caused massive flooding. Our neighborhood was a disaster along the waterfront with 12 foot of water in homes. We were evacuated by the National Guard and didn't have any idea that we would come back the next day to a dry house. Since we lived 2 blocks up from the waterfront homes, our house escaped flooding. It came to the edge of our garage, you could see the water mark up along the bricks. There were weeks of clean-up, you don't know where to start after the water takes it all downstream.

Regardless of whether you have flood insurance, so much is lost. Not just furniture and clothing, it's the important things like family albums or china that had belonged to your Great Grandmother can't ever be replaced. Gone. We pulled together and helped with whatever we could during those weeks that stretched into months. Something as simple as a meal or clean clothes means the world to someone who's lost their home. 

With so many affected, this storm is shaping up to be yet another storm of the century. What's next Mother Nature?

Ghosts in the Shadows

If you happen to live in my neck of the woods and you are scouting for something spooky to do, Eureka Springs offers a whole week of eerie activities. Visit the Crescent Hotel, known as  “The nation’s most haunted resort hotel!” Check in, if you dare, but definitely sign up for the ghost tour. You can explore the halls nightly, and even venture underneath the hotel while you hear the tale of its long, strange history. 

Perched on the crest of West Mountain above the Victorian village is the historic 1886 Hotel & Spa. The 78-room resort hotel is not only known as one of America’s most distinctive and historic destinations, but it is also said to have spirits that walk the palatial grounds!

There was an editorial by Mike Masterson in Sunday's Arkansas Gazette. He recounted the terrifying experience of friends who spent the night in Room 101, The Governor's Suite. Beth Shibley of Burgaw, N.C. had joined her mom Lou Ann Moles (wife of Harrison's mayor Pat Moles) and her sister Lorie Baker for a fun weekend. After a full day of shopping and sightseeing, the three turned in around midnight. Beth and her Mom shared a one bedroom and Lorie was in the other. Shibley, 42, says that while sleeping in a double bed with her mother, something held down her legs and arms and began suffocating her. "It was like a great force of intense pressure pressing down over my whole body, and I couldn't breathe," Shibley, who works as a graphic artist, says of the 2 a.m. experience. Her account as told in USA Today in a special feature on haunted hotels:

“I was awakened by something that started to suffocate me,” Beth said. “I couldn’t breathe and felt an intense pressure on my chest like I was being squeezed against something hard. I couldn’t even draw a breath to shout. . . . I tried reaching to my mother, but my wrists were pinned together on the bed and my arms were being held down with great force.

“My legs wouldn’t move either, except for my right foot, and I started reaching for Mom’s foot under the covers. As soon as my foot touched hers, the pressure stopped and I could breathe, speak and move again. My heart was pounding. I was covered in sweat. There was a horrible smell in the room that was like damp earth and sour sweat, but stronger, almost like sulfur.”

She said she first thought the odor might have come from her sweat soaked nightgown, but the stench had left the room after about 30 minutes. The next morning, the gown still smelled of laundry detergent. Her mother never awoke during the incident, Beth said. “I went back to sleep,” she continued. “At 2:30 a.m., I felt something grab both ankles and jerk me very hard. It pulled me completely under the covers, which had been tucked into the bottom of the mattress. I ended up in the middle of the bed with the covers entirely over my head and my feet off the end of the bed. 

“This time, I could still breathe and shout, so I started yelling and hitting Mom in the area of her kidneys, since I was so far down in the bed. She sat up and asked if I was all right.” Beth said she tried to explain what was happening, but her mother said the story of a bad dream could wait until morning, so Beth leapt from the bed and retrieved her camera, all the while reciting reassuring Scriptures. Lying back down with the camera around her neck and snuggling close to her mother, Beth said she fell asleep with her finger poised on the camera’s shutter button, then lapsed into a vivid dream. “Mom watched me asleep because by now she’d become freaked out. She also watched me taking photographs with my eyes closed even as I slept soundly the rest of that night.”

In her dream, a man wearing a black suit and tie and a top hat appeared at a center fourth-floor window of the hotel. Then six people came up behind him in three pairs. They picked up the man and threw him out the window, but his fall was broken by a rope wrapped around his neck. “I saw his neck jerk to the side, and his hat fell off his head and landed to the right of where I was and watching,” Beth recalled. “I was holding my camera and I focused on the window and snapped a picture. Then I said, ‘Gotcha!’ ” The scene began to fade, but as others came to the window wearing clothing of another period, she continued taking pictures and repeating,“Gotcha!” By then, she said, “I’d come to realize in my dream that I was dealing with something not of this world,” she said. “But I also was no longer afraid.” In all, Lou Ann had watched her daughter snap five pictures in her sleep.

Later, when the film was developed, Beth said that the three women were startled to find one of a misty image leaning over the edge of the bed. A second picture showed the room’s ceiling fan and drapes in focus.
“In the top right corner is the outer outline edge of a window with three ropes coming from it in the exact colors of what the pairs of people were wearing in my dream,” Beth said. “They also were holding three ropes in my dreams and the ropes came out of a window. 

“An enlargement showed more glowing red and blue spots in the mist as well as three pairs of little white X’s in a triangle pattern, similar to the way six people came up behind the man in pairs.” 

The next day, she told me, she wandered outside the hotel, which as an institute in the 1930s housed thousands of cancer patients. There she saw the fourth-floor room as she’d seen it in her dreams. It was exactly two floors above her bedroom’s window.

Beth’s story was among several told in a special feature about haunted hotels that was published last week in USA Today. I’ve seen the photos and they are inexplicable.

“This experience has made me aware of things I’d never thought were possible,” she told me. “These manifestations felt demonic. . . . I believe I’m one of the good humans and that’s why the evil spirits hated me so much. I’m thankful everything ended well.” -

This story just sends chills down my spine! If you'd like a little "excitement" here's the link to the Crescent Hotel!

Speecy-Spicy Meatballs

Remember that commercial? It made us laugh and even better, it sold a lot of Alka-Seltzer! Every time I make meatballs, I remember that old commercial!

This is a great recipe, make and freeze for later... you'll be glad you did!
Just click on the recipe to print!

Speecy-Spicy Meatballs 
Makes about 50 meatballs
1 1/4 cup whole milk
3/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
1 pound spicy Italian sausage, regular if you don't like it "speecy-spicy!"
2 pounds ground beef, I use ground chuck
2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne
3/4 cup finely chopped Italian parsley
1 1/2 cups finely diced or grated yellow onion, from about 2 small yellow onions
4 large garlic cloves, finely minced or grated
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 large eggs, beaten
Olive oil

Pour the milk over the breadcrumbs in a small bowl. Stir them together and set them aside to soften. Mix the sausage and beef  together in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the salt and a generous amount of black pepper, then add the cayenne and paprika. Stir in the chopped parsley, onion, garlic and Parmesan. Mix with your hands then stir in the breadcrumbs and milk,and eggs, mix thoroughly. Shape and cook the meatballs immediately or you can freeze the meatballs in Ziplocs for use later.

I bake mine in the oven, 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Roll into ping pong size balls, about 1 1/2" in diameter. Place on baking sheets lined with silicone sheets or drizzle the pans lightly with olive oil. If you are cooking them in your marinara, add raw balls to the pot and allow to simmer at least 30 minutes covered to let them soak up the flavor of the sauce. They are delicious with a little brown gravy over mashed potatoes or with BBQ sauce as an appetizer. We like meatball subs too, toasted bun, meatballs, marinara and mozz... broil until bubbly and melted, it's GRANDkid friendly! Need a great marinara sauce? Go HERE for Rao's NYC Sunday Sauce!

Enjoy the View

I try not to go backwards, it's not a good thing to think about the past so much that you aren't looking forward... that's where we should be focusing our efforts. But it's hard to not think about the places where I've lived a part of my life. They no longer are familiar to me, even when I visit. Along this creek I was 15 and it was a hard part of my life. If you've ever moved to a new place, you know what I mean. Even though the town was picture perfect, it didn't feel that way. 

I spent the remainder of what was left of my teen years in limbo until the BIG part of my life started. Isn't that just the way we are as teens, waiting for life to "start" instead of using each day to the fullest? You can't explain the urgency, that time is ticking, even when you're young. Sometimes the best advice comes from the least expected source...

The Tree Rats

Create your own Animation

This is the little guy that tried to come inside several times last spring. Every day now, I can see him on the deck watching me. He's very interested in what goes on in the kitchen. That's because he's always thinking about his next meal! Last winter he set in the bird feeder stuffing his face with sunflower seeds. You can see he's not thin, he got his fair share and then some! 

Winter temps are arriving tonight with a hard freeze expected tomorrow night. I can see I need to make a quick run to the store for more cookies and Ritz!

America the Beautiful

On April 30, 1789, George Washington, standing on the balcony of Federal Hall on Wall Street in New York, took his oath of office as the first President of the United States. "As the first of every thing, in our situation will serve to establish a Precedent," he wrote James Madison, "it is devoutly wished on my part, that these precedents may be fixed on true principles."

Many of us feel like this upcoming election is futile, incapable of producing any useful results. That kind of thinking wasn't a factor in the minds of any of the following Americans who made their dreams come true no matter the mountains they had to climb.

Henry John Heinz (October 11, 1844 – May 14, 1919) In 1869 ,Heinz began packing foodstuffs on a small scale in Sharpsburg, Pennsylvania. It was there he founded Heinz Noble & Company with a friend, L. Clarence Noble, and began marketing horseradish.The company went bankrupt in 1875, but the following year Heinz founded  F Heinz, with his brother and a cousin. One of this company’s first products was tomato ketchup.

William Wrigley Jr. (September 30, 1861–January 26, 1932) Wrigley was a salesman and industrialist. Wrigley started his own business in 1891, Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company in Chicago selling Wrigley’s Scouring Soap. In 1892 Wrigley got the idea of offering two packages of chewing gum with each can of baking powder. The idea was such a huge success that he began marketing chewing gum under his own name.

Edison's To-Do List... AWESOME!

Theodore Roosevelt, then U.S. Vice President, delivered a speech at the Minnesota State Fair on September 2, 1901 in which included the famous phrase…”Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far”. He was referring to the idea of negotiating peacefully, but carry a “big stick”, or the military, for political power.

Presidents with direction and abilities to lead our country...

June 29, 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the Federal Aid Highway Act, know as the Interstate Highway Act. Ike was convinced of the overwhelming need for safer and speedier highways. He had served as a young Lieutenant Colonel in the Transcontinental Convoy, and had seen the ease of German autobahns during World War II. The President also felt that newer, multi-lane highways were essential to a strong national defense.

October 1, 1890: Yosemite Established as National Park On this day in 1890, President Benjamin Harrison signed a bill into law creating Yosemite National Park. This law decreed that about 1,500 square miles of public land in the California Sierra Nevada would be preserved for the public trust.

...and the foresight to preserve what was important.

“A garden for every child, every child in a garden.” -The United States School Garden Army On May 5, 1917, Herbert Hoover was appointed by President Wilson to be the United States Food Administrator.  The U.S. had just entered World War I, and Hoover mobilized Americans to produce and conserve food supplies.  Among the kitchen war efforts were Meatless Mondays and Wheatless Wednesdays.

Defining moments in our history where we pulled together as a nation, giving us a sense of pride in being an American.

Construction of the Empire State Building

After 14 years of construction, the Brooklyn Bridge in New York was opened to traffic on May 24, 1883. The bridge, originally referred to as the New York and Brooklyn Bridge, is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. It connects the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River with 1,595.5 feet.

What do all of these people have in common? They were all brave enough to make their dreams come true. It didn't matter that their goals seemed impossible, they just kept trudging on to achieve. Americans are like that, we believe we CAN and that will be our saving grace. We've got a lot of hard work ahead of us in the next 4 years, maybe in the next 20 to correct the mess we are in. But there has to be a starting point, I'm hoping we can begin November 7th.

Ewan's Limo Ride

If GRANDson Ewan wins his fundraiser contest, the prize is a ride in a LIMOUSINE! Oh, his little heart is beating fast just thinking about being inside one of those grand vehicles that he's seen cruising around Dallas!

Make no mistake though, the attraction is the RIDE INSIDE! How could you not feel special in digs like these???

I can't help but stare when I see one, always wondering if someone famous is behind the tinted windows.

My hometown of Springfield, Missouri proudly boasts that it's home to 
Started in 1976, John Bumgarner has earned the title of Limo Godfather. His 7 factories supply the industry with any kind of limo, no matter how BIG you dream. There's a real market for these all over the world. From Humvees to Lincolns, Cadillacs to Chryslers, they can set you up!

Even if you have your heart set on a pink Cadillac that seats all your bff's!

A big company that has an even bigger heart... they donate a portion of the sales price to the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks. For your viewing pleasure, here's a sneak peek inside....

I was surprised that these behemoths that carry 20+passengers actually get 13city/20highway mpg. If that bothers you, they are now making the first electric limousine! The trend of the future, they offer an eco-choice with their conversion of a Nissan Leaf electric sedan (view the video) that has a 100 mile range before needing a simple 30 minute charge and you're off again!

Just in case you'd like to make Ewan's big Limo dream come true...
You can order at this link and he will be on his way to his first life goal!!!
Let's make it happen!

Where the deer and the squirrels roam...

I grabbed the camera on my way out yesterday, a quick trip to town for ricotta to make lasagna. If I don't get some pictures soon, the leaves will all be off the trees. This summer's drought and record high heat has already taken it's toll on many trees that dropped leaves early to save themselves. Mother Nature has a way of persevering.

The colors are not near as bright as a normal fall, the mountains here are dotted with hardwoods mostly and a few cedars and pine trees. Oaks turn a golden or orange, poplars a bright yellow and the reds are dogwoods or maples. There are hickory, elm, ash and walnut trees too, and species native to Arkansas like Chinquapin and Maple Leaf Oaks. 

These mountains above Beaver Lake where we live have pioneer species of trees like red cedar, sweetgum, sassafras, locust, sumac, and persimmon. Along the lakes and streams willows, cottonwood and bald cypress are pretty common. 

Not too long ago, there was a logging company that came in and thinned a hillside off Old Prairie Creek Road. There was some concern at the time that they would damage the area, take too much, but in reality they did the forest a favor. You can see in these pictures that the woods here are overgrown, packed. When that happens, trees are crowded and fight for enough moisture and light to thrive. 

We're still down from normal rainfall, a deficit of almost 10 inches for the year. Sometimes we make it up over the winter and spring, but some of the trees are stressed now after two hard summers. 

I love this drive home, along the lake, curvy and hilly you can't go fast so you have time to unwind and enjoy the scenery. It's a trick that Mother Nature does, makes us go slow so we pay attention to what really counts. 

Home Sweet Home where the deer and the squirrels roam... at least here on Granny Mountain!

Rao's Sunday Sauce

I'm feeling a little "fluffy" after making (and sampling) the pumpkin donut holes 3 times in less than 2 weeks! I do that, wear out a good recipe and then I move onto the next one, and the next one and the next one. Dr. Oz actually addressed this syndrome recently, Pinterest Addiciton. Pinning something to excess. Guilty as charged, I do love the ability to have recipes in the wings waiting for an occasion for me to make them. I traded my cookbook addiction for Pinterest and I've not looked back, that's a good thing! Think how much money I'm going to save on cookbooks ; )

This week I made two of our old time favorite casseroles that were staples when our girls lived at home, King Ranch Chicken Casserole and Lasagna. Our daughter had surgery this week, so it gave me an excuse to make 9X13's... I love 9X13's! If you have an excuse to make either of these, don't pass it up. In fact, make one for yourself too... it's big fork good! All my recipes are printable by just clicking on the titles~

2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
1 (10 1/2 ounce) can Rotel tomatoes & chilies
1/2 cup chicken broth 
2 cups diced cooked chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken from Walmart)
12 corn tortillas, ripped into bite sized pieces
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese 

Preheat oven to 325°F In large saucepan, saute the onion and pepper in the butter until tender. Add soups, tomatoes, and broth. Stir to combine. Fold in the chicken until well blended. Lightly grease a 9 x 13" baking dish. Layer with 1/3 the tortillas, 1/3 the chicken mixture, and 1/3 the cheese. Repeat layers twice more. Bake for 40 minutes or until hot and bubbly. About ten minutes before removing from the oven, sprinkle shredded cheese over the top; replace in oven until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Here's an easy version of lasagna that goes together quickly...

1 pound (16 ounces) ground beef
1/2 cup diced white onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 (24 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup water
1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
3 cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese plus more for top
1 whole egg
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley
lasagna noodles(you can use no cook kind or the ones you boil for 10 minutes)

In a large skillet brown beef and onion. Add garlic and cook for one minute. Drain. Add spaghetti sauce and water and simmer for about 5 minutes. Mix ricotta, 2 cups mozzarella, 1/2 cup Parmesan, egg and parsley. Pour 1 cup of spaghetti meat sauce into a 9X13 greased casserole dish. Place a layer of the noodles and half of the ricotta mixture on top of the sauce. Cover with half of the remaining meat sauce. Add another layer of noodles, the remaining cheese mixture and the sauce. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and more Parmesan. Cover with foil and bake 375 degrees for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake another 30 minutes. Let set for at least 15 minutes to cool before slicing.

If you have the time, and it really takes less than 30 minutes... you can do your own sauce and have enough for two pans of lasagna or do like me and freeze the remainder for later! I love this simple recipe and it's great for any pasta dish.

from Rao's Restaurant NYC Cookbook
2- 28 ounce cans crushed tomatoes
1 cup beef broth
1 small onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon parsley
sprinkle or two of red chili flakes, optional
salt and pepper to taste, I use 1 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper

Saute the onion and garlic until transparent, add the tomatoes, broth and spices and bring to boil while stirring. Turn heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. 
*Italian sausage or hamburger can be added to the sauce if desired. Just brown the meat with the onion and garlic, then add the remaining ingredients.

I nearly peed my pants when I saw the big green balls laying everywhere in Ensley Park last week when we were in Topeka! I don't even remember the last time I saw a Bodark tree, they are kind of hard to find. My Grandpa had them as fence row trees, to mark the boundaries of his pastures. Scrubby and gnarled, he attached barbed wire to them and for decades they did the job of holding the cattle in. By the 1960's he began to replace all of those fences with posts and new barbed wire, and in time the trees simply died. 

Osage Orange, hedge apples, horse apple, Bodark, I've heard all of these names to describe them, they are a favorite of squirrels but poison to humans. Folklore tells us that hedge apples deter spiders, crickets, bugs and cockroaches from getting in your garage or basement. If you Google for info, you see that it's true, one university study showed that a natural chemical in the hedge apple deters cock roaches. People put them in dark corners, by doorways and porch steps to prevent insects from entering the house. Everyone that uses them swears that they work!

I don't remember a can of bug spray being a staple at my house as a kid, but the hedge apples were placed in the basement and in the garage and I don't recall ever seeing bugs. Maybe not as well as a commercial pesticide, but they are a green choice for those of us who like that.

We had to dodge the falling bombs, they are heavy, but Aunt Nadine and I gathered up enough for her garage, her sister's and mine in a couple of minutes. We'll let you know if they work!

BoBo's was a "Capitol" Idea!

Aunt Nadine gave us a guided tour of Topeka that would have rivaled any state visit by dignitaries, probably because she once worked at the Capitol! A major reconstruction project is currently underway, so access was a little complicated and we foregoed a visit inside. We took advantage of the many photo ops on the Capitol grounds and then continued our tour of the downtown area. Nadine has called Topeka home for over 35 years now, so she knew the town like the back of her hand. We began to talk about lunch and what sounded good, getting three people to agree on one single place in a Herculean task so we drove aimlessly for a little while. Then it happened... the planets all aligned, the sun shined on us and we magically drove by BoBo's! 

In an instant, Aunt Nadine made the executive decision and turned into the busy noontime parking lot full of Cadillacs, Lincolns and Volvo's. Near the Capitol, it's downtown location makes it a favorite of many of the state legislature and office workers.

If you weren't a native, you'd pass right by. But if you are a faithful viewer of Food Network's Diners, Drive Ins and Dives, it may have been a destination. Guy Fieri's visit to BoBo's in 2008 made the little Mom and Pop establishment famous. In reality, it has been famous for a long time before that!

Like a step back in time, Bobo's  is a classic old fashioned drive-in that has been operating in Topeka since 1948, at this location in the 2300 block of 10th since 1953. Inside is a handful of pink Naugahyde booths and horseshoe shaped bar, but half of their customers just pull up to the curb out back and the car-hops bring their meal. The current owners, Richard and Tricia Marsh, bought Bobo's in 2007, but some of the staff have been there many years.

The menu was bigger than the restaurant, with so many great sounding diner delights that we had trouble deciding. Aunt Nadine recommended the Steakburgers and handmade onion rings, we couldn't pass up the homemade root beer either! I spent the short time while we were waiting on our food glancing at what other people ordered... coneys, malts and bowls of steaming chili. Next time I'll try the chili for sure!

Like stepping back in time, the place just "feels good" from the moment you step inside. The aroma of burgers searing on a flat top grill and waitresses that call you honey... it's the kind of place that makes you want to come back over and over. 

The noonday crowd streamed through the front door, from young to old, a table of nurses and a group of  legislators from the Capitol... all here for one reason, great food!

If you come to BoBo's and don't have a slice of the homemade apple pie still warm from the oven, topped with Satin Dream softserve... well, don't blame me! By the slice or they even sell a whole pie, isn't that nice of them to share the good stuff?

If you find yourself anywhere near Topeka, Kansas... BoBo's Drive In needs to be on your must visit list!
