"Kummerspeck"



This is a good German compound noun meaning "Sorrow-fat". The people at CURVES think I should get weighed again. I don't know if I'm ready for that. I think there has been too much sitting around and too much funeral lasagna. I am frightened. Frightened enough to make more vegetable soup.

No, no, I love the vegetable soup. As I said, start with some butter and onions and it tastes fabulous. See the pictures, get inspired!!! Eat it anytime.

I am inspired!

I'm going to whip up a batch of butter and onions right now!

Thanks Brigitte!

I had that coming. :)

Hoping not to be so Tubby, said...

I was just joking, Brigitte.

I have a penchant for things rich and tasty!

A stew of butter and onions would be (unfortunately) something I would go for!

Your way looks better.

I start with chicken pieces (skin attached) instead of butter and onions. Boil, simmer, add vegetables, garlic, and onions. Simmer some more. Remove chicken pieces. Remove vegetables. Puree vegetables (thickens the broth a bit). Skim fat. Etc. Etc.
Yum

Thanks Mary, I should try that for variation in flavor.

How did you make that other soup the other day?
