Sausage Bean & Kale Soup

I think I've made something very similar to this in the past but it turned out well enough that I didn't want to forget what I did. So here it goes...

Saute chopped onions and mushrooms in olive oil. Add chopped kale and stir until it begins to wilt.

Cover with water.

Add chicken and beef bouillon, salt, pepper and parsley.

Bring to a boil. Add some chopped potato and some white beans. Return to boil.

Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender.

Add homemade potato sausage meatballs and heat through.

Serve with snails... ;)

3...2...1... CAKE!

Last week we had supper with a couple from church and she made the coolest little cakes for dessert! I'm sure this recipe is all over the internet, but since it was new to me I'm posting it here...

It's so easy and you have have individual cakes in any flavor you want in only a couple of minutes. Here's all you need to do...

First buy a boxed angel food cake mix. (You MUST have this!)

Then buy a second box cake mix in any flavor you want. (She had strawberry and I made devil's food for tonight.)

Pour both mixes into a large clear bowl and mix well. (Use a clear bowl because you will better be able to see when they are mixed.)

Pour into a zipper bag for storage in the pantry.

Take a standard 12oz coffee mug and put in:
3 TBSP cake mix
2 TBSP cold water

Mix well with fork. (Be sure you get all the dry mix off the bottom.)

Place in microwave and cook for 1 minute.

Remove from microwave.

Immediately turn the mug upside down and shake into a bowl or plate.

You can eat this cake warm or cooled. (But they are better warm) Top it with whatever floats your boat. The possibilities are ENDLESS!

Have fun and eat cake!
