It has been raining here again today. We have had a few days of sunshine but lots of rainy days lately. It makes me want to cozy up in my den and stay there. Last night I made a comfort food I would like to share with you.

12 oz. can V8 juice

1 beef bullion cube

Dash hot sauce

A couple of dashes of Worcestershire sauce

Put in a microwave soup mug and microwave for a minute and half.

This makes a soup like drink and can be served with crackers. It is warm and comforting.

Oh yum! That sound wonderful. I am going to try it Thursday when they tell us our beautiful 2 sunny days will be giving way to rain again. I love V-8 juice and can almost taste it with the "doctored" up version you shared in this post.

Thanks for sharing that. I've never thought about having it hot!

hi mary! weve been getting some rain here too.. but you know what they say, April showers brings May flowers! its supposed to get very nice here this weekend!

Bliss said...

Speaking of showers...once at a bridal luncheon in Paducah I was served this tomato drink. I had never had it before and while it was yummy, it seemed an unusual thing to have at a bridal luncheon. At the actual wedding we had coffee punch! That was also unusual but I guess that was an element of surprise...something fun and different!

Good morning, dear Mary:-)

It's a cloudy and rainy day here too and apparently it will stay like that for the rest of the week! I just hope the grass is green by the time all of this rain ends! lol

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, it does sound delicious and would warm your insides on such a cool and miserable day:-) xoxo

Well I can tell you one thing, my son said he is going to try it. Hope you have a nice week.


Hi Mary!!

It sounds good. Hope that you have found all kinds of cozy right there in your own home. Here's hoping that the sun returns soon, though. Too many rainy days in a row is, well, too many.

Hi Mary
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
I truly enjoy meeting new blogfriends.
Your soup sounds so good.
It is sunny here and very dry, we need some moisture badly.
God bless.

see you there! said...

Your drink recipe sounds so good, I'm going to copy it so I'll have it on hand for our next rainy day.

We've been having a heat wave, breaking April records. I'm off to have some lemonade.

Hi Mary, I know about RAIN... We had alot of it in Texas--as you know since you read my blog today... Yipes!!!

Hope you had a great week/weekend.

We are glad to be home.. It was a wonderful trip --just getting to see my son and family.

Hello Mary!

Rainy days can be very relaxing, we here in southern Cal are to get a little rain today. I am in the mist of reading a wonderful book and a little rain makes it so cozy. :o) Thank you so much for the recipe, it sounds warm and wonderful. I also love your brand new header. Philippians 4:8 is one of my favorite passages. Those simple words have brought so much healing to my life. :o) You and your sweet family enjoy a lovely weekend.
