Having Fun

100_5087

Fishing. Such great fun for two little boys on a warm Sunday afternoon. Temperatures here today are amazing. Mid 50’s. The sun is shining beautifully. The mother of these two boys had called while we were at church. She wanted to know if she could bring the boys to fish for a while. They had a great time.

I fixed a new recipe for lunch today. I got it from a blogger friend. It is called Amish 13 Bean and Sausage Chowder.

2 cups of 13 Bean Blend
1 qt. fresh water
2 tsp. butter
1 tsp. lemon juice
4 tsp chicken broth
4 cups potatoes (diced)
2 cups onions (diced)
1 1/2 cups celery (sliced with leaves)
1 can (15oz) yellow corn
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp sage
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 qt whole milk
1 cup light cream
1 egg
3 Tbsp. Corn Starch
2 Tbsp. Flour
2 lbs of smoked sausage (sliced 3/8″)

1. Soak Bean in water overnight and drain.
2. Simmer the first 5 ingredients together in a heavy kettle for 30 minutes
3. Add the next 5 ingredients and cook another 15 minutes till potatoes are tender. (Do not stir much)
4. Add garlic salt, sage, black pepper & milk (Do not let boil)
5. Blend light cream, egg, corn starch & flour together in a bowl with a whip till smooth.
6. Slowly add the step #5 mixture and heat gently to thicken. Add sausage and Serve.

We liked it very much. I am taking the rest of it tonight to church for our fellowship meal. We will be having the soup, cornbread, pigs in a blanket, cake and ice cream. We have 3 more weeks after tonight on our study of II Corinthians.

Enjoy your evening and God bless.

  1. How fun for the little boys. What is in the 13 bean mix? I don’t think I have heard of that in our bulk section of the grocery store.

    It sounds like a great soup recipe. We don’t have church tonight as it is a fifth Sunday. We have a potluck and then have the evening off.

    Have a great evening.

  2. Yum, that soup does sound good! Oh, I bet those boys did have a great time fishing on such a beautiful day there! Hope you all have a wonderful week !

  3. My Dad came for a visit and I saved him a little bit. He said it was good too. I guess the soup just kept getting better and better! 😉 I have two more soups to try. I will post those recipes as well in the next few weeks. They also came from the small Amish Market around the corner.
