But about the soup .....
We all like hot and sour soup so I worked out this recipe that Lisa and I thought was good enough to make again. I took several different recipes from the internet and this is what I came up with.
Thinly slice and chop pork and saute with a tablespoon of garlic in a little oil. I used a large pork chop for the meat. And I use the garlic in the jar because I am lazy and hate peeling garlic.
Then combine and add 2 and 1/2 cups of chicken broth
1/3 cup rice vinegar
2 T. soy sauce
1 T. sesame oil
1/2 t. black pepper
1/2 t. red pepper flakes
1/2 t. ginger or 1 t. fresh minced
1 T. sriracha sauce ( or more to taste.)
2 teas. Swerve
Simmer a few minutes and add 2 large green onions, chopped
and 3 medium mushrooms, sliced thin. Simmer a few more minutes
and then add:
1 well beaten egg while the soup is simmering. Kinda like in egg-drop soup. It has been soup weather for over a week now. Hope you had a good Sunday.

One of my blessings is I don't have to go out on this cold day, the other is I have Eddie, Buddy and Jenny to keep me company (family dogs, not mine) and in the crockpot is a venison roast that is smelling so good. My cousin Mary's recipe, a big old roast, a packet of Ranch Dressing, a stick of butter and a packet of brown gravy. Hope all is well at your house.

As for this this snowy day I am dog-sitting while the family goes to the Lions game. These are my charges:
I hope you are warm today and have someone to shovel for ya!

We have known Nancy from the craft shows and we love everything she makes. These are two of the things I brought home.

I love frames with a vintage look, old photos, old buttons, old lace so this is what I came up with. The ribbon looks a little big in the picture but it really isn't and I had to choose to crop off her shoes or the headline, I couldn't see not showing those shoes.
It's been a rainy day in Michigan. I went to the library after they were closed for four days. I was overdue for my book fix. Happy day everyone.

I have to concentrate on keeping myself upright and moving along. I hope your Friday was also fun.
