Feed the Fisherman

I was actually thinking of dinner this evening and one of my favorites for winter crossed my mind. The post is a product review, which I do not often do, so read carefully.

I discovered a couple of years ago an incredible soup mix. They are produced by a company which I believe is located in Rome, GA and are very easy, nutritious and filling. The package says they will feed 8, but when I open one, I usually divide into 4 servings and place each into a sandwich baggie. Depending on which you kind you choose, there are, without extras 300-400 calories per double serving. For certain ones, all you need add is water. Suggestion is 8 oz per serving. So for my double serving it would be 16 oz. PS-I usually add about 50% more.

For my soup dinners, I usually add a couple of ounces of browned ground beef or pork sausage, and about a 1/4 cup of additional uncooked rice. An ounce or two of milk is also added when I remember. Add a pinch of flour to help thicken and you have quite a meal. Garlic and pepper to taste as well will help--I use crushed red pepper for extra pizzazz.

I place all ingredients into a stove top skillet and put on low medium heat. Bring to a slow simmer and cook about 20-30 minutes stirring occasionally. Serve immediately or place in a thermos for use on the water or in the duck blind later. Also add a toasted bagel with a little cream cheese as an additional filler. This is really good stuff and everyone should try. Multiple retail stores are now carrying these, but you'll pay a little more.

Costs about $5 per bag, which easily feeds 4, and can be ordered online with little or no shipping fee at Shore Lunch.com. This is a freeze died product, so I suspect will last for years in their pre-packaged airtight mylar bags. Keep the Idaho Fly Fisher's belly full.

Hard takes, tight lines and full bellies to all.
