The family went to Tender Greens Restaurant in La Jolla and just loved the Rustic Chicken Soup.
So I decided to make some. I made chicken broth and cut up cooked chicken breasts. I bought mixed potatoes.
Lots of different squashes.
Carrots, celery, leeks and thyme.
I picked rosemary branches just to decorate the table with.
I love the smell and it gives the table that rustic look I wanted.
Scott made some sour dough baguettes for the meal.
I also grilled some eggplant from the garden.
It was a delicious Rustic Chicken Vegetable Soup for a June meal.
I wanted to let you know what happened this week to our Maggie.
Our lab, Maggie had to have major surgery this week. Her thymus gland was enlarged and was blocking her lungs and breathing. Dr. Frey the surgeon, did the surgery. It went very well and they took out the gland which was a size of an avocado. We're excited about bringing her home on Thursday. She's 11 1/2 years old. All of our 3 children are coming home for the big Homecoming. If any of you have dogs, you know what I mean. It will be a wonderful
Father's Day celebration!! I'll let you know how she's doing.
We ended up stopping by Myrtle Creek Gardens and Nursery when we dropped Maggie off, It was near the hospital. It's located in Fallbrook, California.
It's a wonderful peaceful place to go and enjoy all the wonderful sights and sounds of nature.
I wanted to share with you some photos of the Nursery.
They have a lot of old vintage pieces in the Gardens.
