I haven't been to NYC in a few years. Love it sooo much. Wish I could catch Twelfth Night before it closes next month. Your visit sounds like a perfect Valentine's date. Hope you have a great time!

On clear days, I can see Canada and it's all frozen as far as I can see out. My husband's a construction crew leader and his crew had to work today. Poor thing. Going to start the soup before he's even on his way home tonight. Bone-chilling cold here.
I started shaking as I read that. Makes me hungry for chili! Hope that whatever you use for heat is secure. So many power outages and fires this time of year make this weather even more stressful. Be warm and safe, Mary!

We have power outages too, but thankfully none recently. The power outages did make me start thinking about all of the homeless people, right now. It's so cold - I just made a donation to the metro homeless shelter in our downtown area (heavily populated), to help with the extra people they've had to take in. It's usually cold here during the winter but not this cold. I am actually headed over to the recipes to scour for good soup ones for tonight.

You're too funny!! The laughter helps keep me warm, so keep it up. It's nice and sunny here and eleven degrees F. May even go above 32 tomorrow--heat wave!

If you like chili and like soup I have made this a couple of times and really like it:

I found it to be kind to my bg I get about four servings from a batch. Mary, the Rotel tomatoes didn't seem to bother me but the amount could be cut down or even eliminated.

Thanks for the link. I would have to take all tomatoes out. Looks good, though!

I don't think eliminating the tomatoes will change it much. I like them but they don't seem to add to the flavor. You could also add other things like bell pepper etc. It will warm you up.

Cook's Thesaurus suggests that roasted red peppers or tomatillos are reasonable substitutes for tomatoes. It also mentions mangos and papayas, but I think we'd be getting into more carbs using those.

Thanks Shanny - I even have roasted red peppers on hand. Mangoes ... ahh, what memories. The first time I tried a mango post-diagnosis, I ended up at the doctor's office with a BS of 550. They were even worse than the cherry fiasco. I actually have come close to mango flavor in some drinks I've made, using different SF flavorings. Yep, this soup's definitely on the menu for tonight.
