I was right in the middle of writing this post last night when the power went out so I didn't finish writing it. I had been fighting a headache all day, and being the end of the day I was losing the battle. The power went out. Matthew starting SCREECHING with glee as he jumped around like a wild monkey. The older children all grabbed flashlights and took turns shining them into my face. The phone was ringing and UPS was at the door. I decided that it was time to end my day and I put myself to bed. But anyway...
Last night we had a roasted chicken for dinner. While I was cleaning up I felt bad about throwing out the carcass so I threw it into my big stock pot and covered it with water.

One of the neighborhood husbands was home sick today, so I divided the soup in half and sent it over. There was enough for my entire family with plenty to spare, and I believe there was enough for the other family as well. That's less than ten cents per serving!
