    I didn’t participate in any carnivals again this week, but I did read some interesting things, so without further ado, here they are:


    1. Thanks for the link love. I hope all of your readers will drop by late tomorrow afternoon for the weekly coupon match-up for this week’s ad. It takes quite a while to do so give me most of the day to get it put together.

    2. To make your own “cream of” soup – melt 3 tablespoons butter in sauce pan, when it’s melted, quickly whisk in 3 tablespoons of flour – then add 1 cup liquid – that is the equivalent of a can of condensed soup. If you want mushroom, then satuee mushrooms in 1 tablespoon butter, remove the mushrooms (leave as much butter as you can in the pan), add 3 more tablespoons butter, then proceed w/ the flour — for your liquid add a cup of milk (we make it w/ rice milk). Add spices/bullion to taste. If you want cream of chicken, add chicken buillion, cream of celery – sautee celery first. Add spices (salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, whatever) to taste (depending on the type of soup you want to make) :)
