Return of the Fishing Bracelet and Soup!

Just a quick post here tonight, well this morning. Wow!  I need to go to bed.  I lost track of time sitting on the couch tonight working on a new fishing bracelet?  What is a fishing bracelet you ask?  Well, its a survival bracelet, made from 550 paracord, that contains some fishing line and a few hooks inside it.  Other than some of the wrapped line showing through the holes in the cobra weave bracelet, you would never know that it contained 25 feet of 50 pound test line and two number 10 hooks.

In other news I have been eating more soup than you can shake a stick at these last few days.  Soup?  When it is 95 degrees out still and 100% humidity in the great state of Virginia?  Yep!  Taco Soup.  Seriously, go get these ingredients.  A single batch cost me $13 at the grocery store.  It easily fed my entire family, with enough left over for my wife to take in her lunch and my son to eat as his "snack" before going to bed last night.  The recipe is deceptively easy but the result is amazing.  Quick!  Go make some!


1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 oz.) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14.5 oz.) can petite diced tomatoes, drained
1 (15.25 oz.) can sweet corn, drained

1 (10.75 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
1 (10 oz.) can green enchilada sauce
1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth

Mix all ingredients together in a large pot.
Heat until warm, stirring occasionally.
