    Default Blattant Hit On PVC

    Since you were interested my Wild Rice Beef Barley Mushroom Soup

    barley, 2 cups of wild rice (broken for soups), 5 medium yellow onions
    diced, ten large ribs celery diced, 1 lb carrots diced, 24 ounces
    button mushrooms sliced, 4 cloves garlic minced, 10 quarts water, 2
    Tbsp dried marjoram, 2 Tbsp dried parsley, 2 Tbsp dehy bell pepper, 2
    tsp MSG, black pepper/salt to taste. Let me know if you'd like my
    soup:

    Looks good for a winter night. Looks like enough for an army - going
    to freeze some for lazy days? Or is is going to a......potluck?

    Right now it's sitting outside on my back deck. It'll be cold by
    morning and that's when I'll freeze most. It's not really a lot
    considering many people have more than that in canned soups in their
    pantry... I never buy canned soups. So now I have pea and barley, and
    a couple containers of bean soup from last year. Winters here are
    cold, when neighbors stop in I can always do a quick hearty meal with
    my nuker... sometimes I think neighbors stop in just for my soups.
    And anyway it's not much more effort to make a large pot of soup as a
    small pot.

    Your soup looks *very* good!
    I'm like you...like to make it when it's cold outside. It makes the house
    smell nice and feel cozy while it's cooking, and you can put it outside with
    a lid to cool when it's done.

    I also make about a gallon or more of soup whenever I make it as it freezes
    well. I've got all the makings of a turkey-vegetable soup here....just
    waiting for a cold spell. 60+F here today and tomorrow, so maybe next week?

    it's been below freezing here for a couple of weeks already. Sitting
    out on the deck my 16 qt pot was cold by this morning. I ate two big
    bowls for dinner last night and two more tonight... used my 28 ounce
    Williams Sonoma chilli bowls. The rest is already portioned and in my
    freezer. A gallon of soup isn't much... that's only four quarts...
    get yourself a much larger pot.

    For years, I used a 5-quart pot. What a joke. But then I bought a bigger
    one.

    You made me look. My largest pot (Revere Ware) is an 8 quart pot. This is
    what I use for soup. (I did say 1 gallon *or more*). Like you, I take it
    right up just an inch or two from the rim so I guess I'm making more like 7
    quarts of soup each time. Sounds right too because I end up with an average
    of 14 pints...I freeze it in pint containers.

    That's only half the size of your pot but it's enough for me living alone
    now. Many times, I'll thaw a pint and eat it for 2 days (as it's very
    thick...almost like a stew). One full pint would be a complete meal for me
    (with some bread and butter added).

    Anyway, I got all the ingredients....turkey broth from the TG turkey and all
    the veggies. I'm just waiting for a cold spell so I can set it out on the
    back porch for a few hours or overnight.

    I'm chilling a beef veg soup in the snow on the patio right now. I'll
    keep it out there a few hours, but I wouldn't trust it overnight.
    Aren't you afraid the critters will get into it? We're in a suburban
    area but we still have squirrels, raccoons, foxes, and the occasional
    stray cat or dog wandering around in the back yard.

    Maybe the local wildlife has tasted his soup before.

    I suppose I've been lucky. I also have the bird feeder out there and
    I keep a six gallon galvanized covered pail filled with bird seed
    right there for refilling... critters will eat the spilled seed under
    the feeder at night but they haven't bothered my supply pail. Right
    now I'm feeding a ferral cat. I fixed up a little house in my barn
    filled with old comforters. It's a big black cat with a white face. I
    put a feeder in the barn and keep it filled with dry cat food. I
    don't know if it's a male or a female but it's very happy with its
    little house. Thing is I enjoy feeding the critters so if one day
    they get my soup that's when I'll change my system. I can also set it
    in a corner of my garage, where the largest critters are field mice. I
    actually thought of tying the lid down to the pot handles with a
    bungee cord. Maybe I'll do that next time. And that will probably be
    the time some critter figures a way to get to it. But these critters
    are innocents, they have no ulterior motive nor do they take food with
    spite and malice, they are driven by nothing other than to satisfy
    their hunger. In the urban and suburban areas I'd be more concerned
    about thieving human critters who are only destructive.

    I used to hang a couple bird feeders in my back yard but I stopped doing
    that because our clothes line is out the birds were crapping all over
    our laundry. I was thinking that maybe I could find a place on the other
    side of the house. Then again..... we haven't had any cats for a few
    years not having a dog running free, the squirrel population around
    here has exploded. I am not paying to feed tree rats.
