Three more lap afghans for the seniors.

This one is my Purple Stripes afghan.

This one I got the pattern from "Crochet" magazine.

This one I decided to see what it would look like if I just took the bits and pieces of left over yarn and sewed them all together. Turned out pretty cool I think.

1pkg frozen mixed vegetables
1 can chicken broth
1 can cream mushroom soup

Peel and cube potatoes, put in a large pot with about a cup to a cup and a half of water. Add tomatoes, mushrooms, mixed vegatables, chicken broth, cream soup and meatballs. May need to add a little water to cover everything. In a small pan saute onion and garlic in butter and Italian seasoning until onions are clear. Add to pot. Salt to taste. Simmer at low to medium heat for about 30 minutes. Really good next day.
