Also, left over from Christmas, I just picked up a poinsettia tree that was in my dentist's office. I am going to try to save it and get it to bloom again next Christmas. My mom used to do that all the time. Successfully.

We went out to one of the local country clubs for Lobster Night ~ twin tails or surf & turf for $24.95. It was just OK. Nothing really special. I guess if I want really good surf & turf I need to make my own ~ or do without....LOL
Today I'm making a pot of sausage, bean & kale soup ~ any takers out there? Lots & lots of kale.....hahahahahaha
Actually, it's based on the Zuppa Toscana at Olive Garden but I'm switching it up this time. Instead of hot Italian sausage, I'm using some 'hot' Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage. And I added leeks instead of onions, added a can of cannelinni beans, a can of black eyed peas and a can of diced tomatoes. I did dice up a couple potatoes in hopes they will break down over the cooking and help thicken the broth up a bit. I also threw in a healthy pinch or two of red pepper flakes.
Come hell or high water, I'm gonna beat this darn cold one way or another!

All the markets are subject to the same inspection by the Health Dept., Dept. of Agriculture, etc. so it wouldn't bother me to purchase from any of them.
