Hi Nancy, Just wanted to say thanks to the response I received about the Strawberry Glaze, sounds like a good idea to make your own. Also would like to mention to everyone that when they make a comment about a recipe that they have tried, it would be wonderful if they would put the date it was in the newsletter and the name of the recipe, it is always nice to hear the comments from everyone and how the recipe turned out. I hope to submit some recipes soon, and a BiG thanks again for all you do to make our day something to look forward to and everyone that submits their recipes, you do a great work.
God Bless!!! Betty Boop in Ga.

Basil Tomato Soup Recipes

Doris - DE recently requested Tomato Basil Soup recipes. Here are 2 that ar great, both of which came from 2005 and 2006 newsletters.
Robbie IN

Country Bread and Tomato Soup with Mashed Basil Oil

1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, packed
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
3 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 (28 ounce) cans whole, peeled tomatoes or 12 Roma tomatoes, peeled
1 quart water or vegetable stock(can also use chicken stock)
1/4 cup dry red wine
1 loaf Country Bread, torn into bite-size pieces

Mash the basil well with ½ cup of the oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Heat the remaining ¼ cup oil over medium-low heat. Cook the garlic, red pepper and oregano just until the garlic begins to sizzle. Crush the tomatoes with your hands over the stockpot, including all juices. Add the water or stock and red wine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the bread and remove from heat. Serve immediately, drizzling the soup liberally with the mashed basil oil.
Serves 8
the Panera Bread cookbook.

La Madeleine Tomato-Basil Soup

4 cups (8-10) tomatoes peeled, cored and chopped or 4 cups canned whole tomatoes, crushed
4 cups unsalted tomato juice
12 to 14 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup sweet unsalted butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
salt to taste

Combine tomatoes and juice in a saucepan. Simmer for 30 minutes over a medium-low heat. Cool slightly, then place in a blender or food processor, add the basil and process to puree; this will need to be done in batches, depending on the size of your blender. Return mixture to saucepan and add the cream and butter. Stir over low heat until the butter and cream are incorporated. Stir in salt to taste and pepper. Garnish the soup with fresh basil and serve with really good crusty bread. ENJOY!

This is for Camille Commack, L.I., NY concerning her dizziness. My dh went for about 3 years being dizzy, especially when he turned his head to the right. He went to the Dr. many times and was given many medicines, but none seemed to work. We heard of the Epley Maneuver. Although a physical therapist actually does the treatment, you need a doctor's prescription to get the treatment. What a difference it made immediately. He highly recommends it.

Hi Nancy, this is for for Jae in Central OK and Sara in FL in regards to shingles. I am a nurse, and this is what I know about Shingles. Shingles is the chicken pox virus. It settles in your spine after you have had chicken pox. Anything can make it present again. Stress or illness to name a couple. It usually occurs along a nerve tract and you can have chronic pain from shingles for as little as a few days up to the rest of your life. Depending on the severity of the outbreak you had, and where you had it. I had shingles in nursing school. I thought I had been bitten by a spider at first. But the doctor said, no you have shingles. It started in the middle of my right cheek and went down my leg. It was very painful. I could not sit down on that side for a couple of weeks and had pain when bending over. This was almost 20 years ago and since then I've only had 2 mild reoccurrences. At the time, I think he gave me some ointment and some kind of pain killer. More recently, my primary care doctor put me on an anti viral medication. The shot could have caused an outbreak for you, as I am sure maybe the consent form you signed should have mentioned, or that you might have a mild reaction, but maybe not since it was last year.
