MOMS FOR SAFE FOOD

by Sheri

Curried Zuchinni Soup

My garden has been growing more zucchini then we can eat, and almost more then we can give away. LOL

I found this soup recipe and have made it twice already. My husband said he would be happy to eat it all summer.

It's quick and easy and you can eat it either hot or cold. Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil (or half oil half pastured butter)
1 cup organic yellow onion, chopped
1 teaspoon organic garlic, minced or chopped
1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
2 teaspoons organic curry powder
pinch of organic cayenne pepper
2 pounds of organic zucchini, ends trimmed off and chopped
3 1/2 cups organic stock (I use beef bone broth -- you can use chicken, beef, veggie)
1/2 cup organic heavy cream (substitute coconut milk or cream for dairy free)

Directions:

In a soup pot, heat the oil/butter over medium high heat. Add the garlic and onions and cook, stirring until soft for about 3 minutes.

Add the curry powder, salt and cayenne and stir for about a minute.

Add the chopped zucchini; reduce the heat to medium and cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the stock and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until the zucchini is tender, about 20 minutes.

Then blend the soup. The easiest way to do this is with an immersion (aka stick) blender. They are not expensive and are the best for soups, and making mayo and whipped cream. Either remove from heat and use your immersion blender until blended or put the soup into a blender and blend.

Then return to heat and add the cream, stir and simmer for another 2-3 minutes and either serve (we love it hot) or refrigerate until chilled. Enjoy!

RAMBLINGS OF A JACK RUSSELL TERRIER

by Anne Kane

I don't know why everyone is complaining about the heat. They say it's hotter than any other year ever, but I fail to see why that's an issue. They should relax like I do. I'm trying to train the author to be a better dog-type person, so to speak, but it's tough. First, since everyone knows it's going to be too hot to go for a nice long walk at our normal time, I wake her up early in the morning. Four thirty in the morning seems like a reasonable time to me, but I find it is better to stay out of reach while barking good morning to her. She can be a tad grumpy before she gets her coffee. When she finally gives up trying to shut me up, she wastes a lot of time getting her coffee, and grooming herself, and she even takes the time to feed the cat before she pays attention to my needs. Eventually she's ready and we go for our walk.

USELESS INFORMATION

  • Sloths can reach a top speed of five feet per minute when on the ground.
  • Almost all calico cats are female. The one in three thousand that is male has an extra X chromosome and is thus sterile.
  • Tarantulas can shoot silk from their feet to allow them to walk on vertical surfaces without falling.
  • Diving bell spiders take air-bubbles with them when they go underwater. They can get enough air from one bubble to survive twenty-four hours without breathing.
  • The male funnel-web spider chemically puts the female into a stupor before mating with her, so she will not devour him.
  • The average dog can learn to understand 165 words.
  • Instead of antlers, male Siberian musk deer have long fangs that they use to fight other males.
  • The word "musk" comes from the Sanskrit word for "testicle."
  • Avocados are toxic to many species of birds.

Borrowed by Daheap from The Incredible Book of Useless Information.
