We left weight in Florida
Trucks of Art
Sherry and I tried my magic soup for a few days the last week and a half we were in Florida. The first pot was tomato soup. I used a couple cans of tomatoes and a couple fresh tomatoes, onion, celery, carrots, a squirt of mustard, tsp basil, salt, pepper, vinegar, garlic and chicken broth. The second pot I added a half head of cabbage.
After 15 minutes in the pressure cooker it was done ( I wanted 8 minutes but couldn’t figure how to get that on the new electric pressure cooker). Then I ran it all thru the blender to give it the consistency of a thick ‘Campbell’s Tomato Soup’ (which I like also). Each pot lasted three days. For breakfast I had a couple eggs in the microwave and Sherry stuck with oats or cereal for breakfast.
Evenings I had a trail mix and nuts plus green tea. Sherry goes to bananas and peanut butter with chamomile hot tea.
I lost about 5-6 lbs and Sherry lost 4 - 5. We are gonna try it again here once we get settled. I was hoping for 10, but 5 ain’t bad. I had gained up to 161 and now back to 155. That soup is good. We love it.
Ps: I try to at least eat an orange or apple a day, I prefer an apple.
PS 2: TT asked if we were settling down. I hope for a while anyway. Just not sure how well it will work. ;-)
PS 3.. Chatty ... We have three homes to choose from to settle in. We just cannot decide which is the best choice. We have one with an RV port, if we settle, that will probably be our choice. We have this one, it is beside where we will build, so we will definitely stay here for abou 3 months. until the new house is finished. and sold.
