Summer Soup With Chicken

I’m late to the table with some vegetables (like Bok Choy and Kale). My Farmer, Danelle, has quietly been the Veggie Pusher for a few seasons now.

I bought some Bok Choy a few days ago, thinking I would stir fry it. But I wasn’t in the mood. I wanted some calming soup! My recipe is a combination of a few I found on the internet coupled with my own pantry items 🙂

Summer Soup with Chicken

1 Onion, diced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
2-4 Carrots, diced
2-3 Potatoes, peeled and diced
Salt & Pepper
4-6 Bok Choy stems, sliced and diced. Reserve leafy top and chop. Set Aside.
  1. Saute in a mixture of bacon grease, butter and Olive Oil (my holy trinity)
  2. Add 4 teaspoons Better Than Broth and 4 cups water OR Stock
  3. Let cook at medium-low until veggies are soft.
  4. Mix with a Boat Motor if you like it smooth. I like it half smooth and half chunkey.
  5. I then added 3 diced chicken tenders and cooked until chicken was cooked thru.
  6. Add the Bok Choy tops and cook a bit longer until they are wilted.
Serve with Crackers. Maybe a sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese.

The Pritzker Interior

I must admit, after standing IN the Pritzker Military Museum and Library, I was starting to feel my blood pressure rise because I LOVED HOW IT LOOKED!!! Follow this link to see a few pro-photos of the place.  One Librarian there told me that Frank Lloyd Wright once lived in and worked at that building. You can take a virtual tour of the Monroe Building!

Coooooold Jeep



Our “Reliable For The Last Six Years In The Winter” Jeep needed a little boost the last time we went up to Okoboji. Luckily, the MomVan was up to the challenge!
One new battery later and I think The Jeep might have another 6 years in her!
