ONN – Peel-A-Pound Soup Farmers Almanac Recipe Made With My Mom
I discovered the age-old Peel-A-Pound Soup Recipe serendipitously. The gift was in the form of a YouTube video by T-ROY COOKS called “How To Lose 15 pounds in 7 days with Peel-a-Pound Soup”.
Since both my Mom, whom I am visiting and helping here in suburban Atlanta, Georgia, and I have both been trying to lose weight, and also keep our blood pressure under control, as well as enjoy a great meal in the process, this was the best idea.
We didn’t use T-ROY COOKS recipe verbatim. We wound up using the one from The Farmers Almanac, with a few variations. This is the recipe:
1/2 to 1 pound green cabbage, cut in bite-size pieces
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 medium-size onions, chopped
1 can (16 ounces) tomatoes, with liquid, chopped
3 bouillon cubes
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 or more quarts water
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups diced cooked turkey or beef
Combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan or stockpot, adding enough water to completely cover the vegetables. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 1 hour. Serve hot.
Well, we added turkey legs and two teaspoons of turmeric.
The end result is one of the best meals I have ever had, ever. That on top of names for it like “Wonder Soup” and claims of weight loss of 10 pounds to 15 pounds a week, and making it with my Mom, add up to a great experience. Cooking together brings a family together.
Come to think of it, for those single like myself, this could be a great thing to do on a second date – not sure about a first one.
I will update you on the weight loss reports.
Oakland News Now Note: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network. This is a major part of our new approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and also seek interested content and media technology partners.
