Rosalynn Carter was devoted to those in need

The U.S. suffered an enormous loss with the passing of former First Lady Rosalynn Carter. Former President Carter is currently in hospice care. The Carters are true Christians who devoted decades of their lives to physically participating in building houses for the homeless. No other former president and former first lady have ever devoted themselves to Americans in need like this!

I intend to celebrate this wonderful woman’s life by making her recipe for peanut soup. If you’d like to do the same, here’s the recipe.

Rosalynn Carter’s Peanut Soup

1 tablespoon butter or margarine

1/4 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

1 can cream of chicken soup

2 soup cans milk

Optional garnishes: chopped peanuts, paprika or chili powder

Saute the chopped onion in the butter until softened and translucent but not browned. Blend in the peanut butter and heat for 3 or 4 minutes, stirring often. Add the soup and stir until well combined. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly, and heat until steaming. Garnish as desired.

Rest in peace, dear Rosalynn. God bless you.
