For dinner I was going to use the last of the Thanksgiving turkey meat I had in the freezer.  Adam, my 16 year old son, saw the turkey meat and said, "ENOUGH TURKEY! I'm making dinner."  And did he ever.  It was a simple yet delicous soup that he served with bacci rolls. 

Adam's Soup
6 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 medium onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 cup shredded carrots
1 yellow squash, sliced
1 zucchini squash, sliced
2/3 cup cubed butternut squash, pre cooked
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

3 slices red cabbage, chopped

Adam just threw all of the ingredients in a pot and cooked until the celery and yellow squash were tender.  Just before serving he garnished with the red cabbage.

Cold Weather Scarf

I am putting on my scarf and a woman walks up to me and asks, "How'd you do that?"  I say, "Do what?"  "Put your scarf on that way."  "What?"  "I wrap mine around my neck and you made a knot thing.  How'd you do that?"  I was stunned that she had never put her scarf around her neck the way I do. So here is a post on placing a scarf around your neck, just in case anyone out there doesn't know how to do it my way either.

Step 1- Fold your scarf in half long ways.

Step 2- Drape the scarf around your neck.
Step 3- Take the end without the loop and put it through the looped end.

Step 4 - Tighten and arrange so it is to your liking.

Caption Winner, JANELLEN P.!

Mom! If you have to wear shoes when you dive then maybe you should wear something more practical like pumps instead of sandals…. That way you can look good and do some spearfishing too!!!

A big thank you to all who participated!  The Queen of Common Cents should be released the first of January.  Janellen, I'll send out your copy as soon as it arrives :)
