Musings From A Musical Mind

The Joy Of Turkey Soup

I love making soup – all kinds.  But this year right after Thanksgiving I made turkey cream soup from a recipe I found online that a friend had posted on facebook.  I simmered my turkey bones all night in my slow cooker and the next morning added the rest of the ingredients.

Unfortunately, I had added too much water when simmering the bones and the result was a very watered down broth.  What to do – what to do?  I added salt, chicken bouillon cubes, other spices – even chicken broth to get the right strength.  I FINALLY got it right and was happy enough with it.  We all had some – it was delicious and it made A LOT.  So I cooled it – and froze it in individual zip lock bags with the serving size to feed about 4 people.  I had 4 bags in the freezer.  Gradually as the weeks went by – I would take one out and thaw it out – heat up the soup and EUREKA!!  Lunch in about 5 minutes!!

Today I am taking out the last of those soup bags to have for lunch.  I am going to eat it slowly, knowing that with all my variations on the original recipe I will never be able to duplicate it again.

And so with making soup – is what we call life. We are never able to duplicate past accomplishments, joys, or even struggles.  Oh we can try to put the same ingredients into things that once had a different conclusion – but in the end – the story is always changing – the ingredients different – never the same.

My soup – although always different – has the same ingredient. A lot of love.

Make some soup today – and be sure to add the ingredient that never changes.

 

God Bless

  1. […] The Joy Of Turkey Soup (cindyholman.wordpress.com) […]

  2. This is what I call Turkey Soup for the Soul! Great post babe.

  3. Sounds good, Cindy! I have a bad cold right now. Been eating lots of soup.

  4. Nope. I have other talents in life. Making soup is not one of them.

  5. I’m not a turkey or turkey soup fan, Cindy, but I love the creativity that went into it! I love other types of soup and there are times when we just start pitching in, never to be recreated again. LOL And, yes, it’s a lot like life. We need to be constantly moving on to bigger and better creativity, no matter how good that last soup tasted!

    • Isn’t it kind of un-American NOT to like turkey and turkey soup, Carla? Just saying 😉 I LOVE all kinds of soup – never met one I didn’t like!

  6. What you say is so very true.
