I made this recipe tonight. Yes, it it 90 degrees, but I am tired of hamburgers, hot dogs and salads. It was so good that I had to share it with you right away.
I found this recipe on facebook and restaurant.food.com. I made changes to the original recipe and improved it.
1 lb of Italian sausage
1/2 lb of bacon
5 potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1/4-1/2" pieces.
1 onion chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced (I used the preminced stuff in a jar)
2 cups of chopped kale
2 cups of water
4 cups of chicken broth
2 cups of whipping cream or milk
Brown sausage in skillet. Cook bacon until crispy in another skillet or on cookie sheet in oven. While the sausage and bacon is cooking, peel and chop potatoes and onion. Place onions, kale, potatoes and garlic in soup pot with drained bacon grease. Cook on medium and stir until onions are cooked and potatoes are almost cooked, but firm. Add water and chicken broth and continue cooking until potatoes are done. Add Sausage, bacon and cream/milk to the soup pot and heat until hot. Enjoy!

I saw a picture of ants eating dyed sugar water on the internet and I thought of turning it into a science experiment.
First, we took 3 milk bottle lids and filled the pink one with water, the orange with sugar water and the blue one with vinegar. In between the orange and blue lid, I put honey on the ground. We placed these in a row about 6" from an ant hill. We spilled some of the water, sugar water and vinegar on the ground to draw the ants to the lids.
Within a few minutes ants started to drink/eat at the edge of the sugar water.
