Veggie Soup

Yesterday I made a great pot of Veggie soup, with polish Kielbasha. Turned out great, and we end up with 2 quarts and a pint that we canned. Here is the recipe that I used, my friend HossBoss on APN... http://americanpreppersnetwork.com/ shared with me. Here it is if you are interested in a great soup...
1 package of Polish Kielbasha
1 Jar of Spaghetti Sause... (keep the jar)
1 can of Tomato Paste
1 can/fresh veggies (corn, peas, carrots, green beans, potatoes, celery)
2 tsp of mined garlic
1 1/2 tsp of dried chives
2 bay leaves
little bit of orgeano
salt and pepper to taste.. we used sea salt.

Take the Kielbasha and slice it up and then cut in half. In a frying pan add a little olive oil and heat it up on medium heat. Now that the oil is heated brown the Kielbasha, and celery.

In a soup pot pour in the Speghetti sause, and then fill the jar half way with water and pull in as well. Once the kielbasha and celery are brown and tender drop into the soup pot. Now add everything else to the pot. Bring thepot to a nice boil, then turn down the temp and let it simmer for about hour. Maybe less depended the taste...

Now everyone enjoy the fruit of you labor.

Plans.... Do you have them?

Snowing outside is very peaceful to watch. It helps to drift away to a BOL that I keep dreaming about. I will be working this winter to learn more and know more about my castle. This is a great time to start those plans for the spring and summer. I know what you are thinking Spring.... Summer.... we haven't even really started winter yet. We can't get where we are going if we don't know where we are headed.

Do you have a plan to get out of your house if there is a fire?

Do you have a plan to meet up if you family can't make it home because of natural emergancy?

Do you have a plan to survive if you lose your job?

Do you have a plan for the up coming week?

Now that you understand we need plans, let me share some of mine with you. I want to get my HAM license this coming year. I also want to learn more about sprouts and how to use them. I am scoping out the yard in the off season to plan for my SFG, (square foot garden). I will be investing in my castle with a nice wood stove at some in the next year. I plan to have a solar clothes dryer installed in the near future.

I now have what I like to call my man cave. I am still working on it. It is a nice place for me to tinker around with stuff and break stuff. I plan to make a night when it is done where me and the boy stay in the man cave to test it out.

I have been sitting and talking with the wife and kids about a long term plan to get to a place in the country. We are in the window shopping stages right now. We are not talking in a year or so.. but more like 3-5 year plan.

I want to get the wife to start to post on here as well. I know that my wife as some truly great ideas and plans to share with other preppers. So keep it preparing to enjoy the good life.
