On Monday Suzanne invited us over for "Pizza Soup".
I know it sounds strange but it was really good.
I decided to enclose the Receipt in this blog so here it is.
6 Bavarian Sausages (sliced) or you can use Johnsonville Brats or Italian sausage.
6 pepperoni (sliced) or 10, if pencil sized
1 medium onion (chopped)
6 slices of bacon (chopped)
Fry all the above ingredients, rinse off excess fat and put in crock pot.
2 cans tomato soup
2 cans sliced mushrooms
1 bunch green onion (chopped)
½ cup ketchup
2 – 3 cans of water
Basically you can put any thing in the soup that you like on your pizza. I'm not to sure about Pineapple.
When bubbling in crock pot, cook for 40 minutes, turn to low and slow cook for about 1 hour.
Serve in bowls, top with finely shredded mozzarella cheese.
Before we arrived at Suzanne and Roy's they had a reptilian visitor.
A beautiful Gopher snake.
On Wednesday we had some new awnings installed on Plan "B", We got a new main awning and a small one over the window by the dinette.
Roy gave us some shade cloth so we had shades made to cover the windshield ,the driver, passenger and rear windows, to cut down on the heat inside.
It helps a lot.
We also had a shade cloth made to hang from the awning so when the sun is low we can still have shade on the side of the RV.
While we were at it, I had Beth make a shade cloth to hang from the role bar behind the seats in the Jeep.
I was hoping that it would slow down the wind coming from behind when we are driving down the highway and maybe cut down on the dust when we are on dirt roads. It did help a little bit.
All our friends except Debby and Mike (they live here year round) are leaving Quartzsite this month so yesterday we took one last ride into the Kofa Refuge to see how the wild flowers were doing.
The Buggy drivers trailered their ATV's to the west end of the Pipeline road where we unloaded and headed east into the Kofa. After a couple of miles we turned south on a service road and continued to the MST&T road where we turned east again and drove up to the MST&T tower.
The view from there is always beautiful.
On the road climbing up to the tower, we saw some Orange flowers.
After leaving the tower we took the back road to the Kofa Cabin.
Along the way we stopped to get pictures of the first of the Teddy Bear Cholla cactus to bloom this year.
B&D got a nice picture of a Hawk in flight.
A little further down the road we found some Stag Horne Choilla's in bloom.
Patti got a nice shot of a beautiful Thistle.
By noon, the temperature was in the Nineties and it was tough finding a shady spot for lunch. We had to do some trimming on this Palo Verde tree by the trail so we all could sit in the shade.
As we moved along after lunch we saw some of the local wildlife.
A Jack Rabbit thinking he is invisible.
A beautiful lizard with an alligator pattern.
A family of Hawks in there nest.

Patti got a picture of a horned toad.
Around three o'clock we came to the Kofa cabin.

We left the Cabin and turned west on the pipeline road and were home by 5:00.
We forgot to bring our camera so I would like to thank Debby and Mike for letting Patti use theirs.
I also would like to thank Becky and Dennis for their pictures.
