You know you are in a small town whenever you miss a home football game and somebody calls to see if you are sick. This actually happened to me whenever I missed a home football game. If you do not have crackers to go in soup, use plane corn flakes. They are good in soup.
Zucchini Soup
1 pound fresh zucchini, grated
1 onion, chopped
1 can chicken broth
2 cups half and half cream, divided
In saucepan, combine zucchini, onion and broth. Bring to a boil, simmer until soft. Pour into food processor and puree. Gradually add a half cup of cream and blend. Return zucchini mixture to sauce plan and add remaining cream. Heat but do not boil.
Money tips for this week. Save containers that mustard come in. Soak off the labels. These containers can be used to hold cooking oil, lemon juice concentrate, or any other liquids. Label these containers. You can use only a small amount of the item.

Instead of buying expensive vegetable brushes, buy a nail brush at a dollar store and use it as a vegetable brush. They are just as good.
