Tuesday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
November comes with large feasts and family gatherings. It is always such a warm time of year. Doesn't matter is you live alone and wrapped up in a warm sweater with pumpkin spice candle lit and hot tea. Playing board games with family while smells of stews cooking all day long.... there is always that sense of peace and warmth this time of year.
I don't know about any of you but I for one am on the look out for new recipes and ideas for family feasts. So, if you can share your favorite feast food or recipe.
What is your favorite "Feast Dish"?
What is your favorite "Feast Recipe"?

     So, this one isn't really a "Feast Recipe". It is more like an "After Feast Recipe". Just have to remember to save aside some components of turkey for it. Maybe some bread rolls or loaves.

Turkey Minestrone

3 tablespoons Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon Sage
1/2 teaspoon Thyme
1 cup String Beans (chopped)
2 stalks Celery (chopped)
2 cloves Garlic (chopped)
1 Onion (chopped)
1 cup Carrots (chopped)
2 cups Potatoes (Squares/cubes)
6 - 8 cups Turkey Stock
1 cup Spinach
2 Tomatoes (chopped)
1/4 Orzo or Macaroni (cooked)
2 cups Turkey

    Sautee onions, celery, garlic and spices. Add potatoes and and carrots for 5 min (for flavor). Then add remainder of ingredients except for pasta. Bring to slow boil in stock pot until carrots and potatoes are soft (45min - 1 hour). Add cooked pasta 5 min before serving.

Great Koffee Klatch! I love reading about food! smilewinkgrin

I love sweet potatoes. My husband always does the boiling part, because the pot is too heavy for me, but you can bake them so then you don't have to lift a heavy pot of burning hot water!

So, bake a bunch of sweet potatoes until they're done--nice and soft. Put them in a large bowl. Add molasses (to taste--I add about a half cup). Add brown sugar (I add about a cup). Add butter (I use a stick or two). Add a pinch of salt.

That's it. It's very easy! You can add marshmellows too if you like them.
