Another pot of homemade soup I made today.
1lb ground beef
Cut up carrots and celery (chopped small'ish)- approx. 3cups
2 potatoes, chopped up small
Tomato Juice (1can)
Tomato soup mix (1pkt)
You can either form the ground beef to make meatballs (using soda crackers and milk with the ground beef), or you can just break the ground beef in small pieces and put them into the pot. Add the tomato juice. Then boil water and mix it with the tomato soup mix (I use a dutch tomato soup mix-but it at the Dutch store lol- even though I'm not Dutch, dh is).. and then pour it into the soup pot. Add diced vegetables, and simmer until the veggies are tender. Then add 3/4c vermacelli noodles, and cook until done.
Delish! Great for winter!! (esp. since it snowed here yesterday!!)
Just something I made up, have no clue what to call it yet! lol.
Roasted chicken (the kind you can buy at the grocery store in the deli area-already cooked)
Chopped carrots and celery(3-4cups)
Cut up broccoli (1cup'ish)
Chicken broth (Campbells)
Cook carrots/celery and broccoli in chicken broth. Drain, but save excess broth. Meanwhile, cook capellini pasta according to package directions. Drain. Then put everything into a saute pan (fry pan with lid), and simmer until done. Yum!
What you'll need:
10 or 12 large potatoes
1 small thing of heavy cream
Wash, and boil your potatoes. Let them rest after you dump out the water. Peel them AFTER you've boiled them, or they'll be all smushy like you use for mashed potatoes. They'll still be a little firm, which is what you want.
Cut the potatoes into small squares, about 1/2" x 1/2". Put them in a large casserole dish. Melt your butter, and put it over the potatoes. Add salt and pepper, and mix it all up.
Make a hole in the middle of the potatoes, and dump the cream in the middle. It should spread out as you pour it.
Cover with tin foil, bake for 45 min on 350 degrees. After 45 min, take off the tin foil, and bake for another 15 - 20 minutes. When the top is a nice tan color, they should be done. Mix, and serve!
I know it sounds strange, but they come out extremely creamy and soft.
With a full thing of cream and a pound of butter, they're definitely diet friendly, too.
