There's always an excuse to leave the dishes, dusting, scrubbing and especially yard work for later. My favorite excuses are sewing, reading, cooking, and now decorating my new house with custom projects. Getting away from home in our new camper is also a great excuse -- although that's just another house to clean! Here's what's going on with me and my favorite hobbies.

Sunday dinner . . .
One of my husband's favorite Campbell's soups is "Bean and Bacon." I made homemade Bean and Bacon Chowder from a cookbook I have called "Is It Soup Yet?"by Dot Vartan, Among Friends, and Shelly Reeves Smith. It called for canned potatoes which get puréed for thickening -- I just boiled a few potatoes -- I've never used canned potatoes, and predict that I never will. I also used chunks of ham instead of the hot dogs the recipe called for. It was a winner.
