I just wanted to share a couple successes I had last week in the kitchen. Since I'm cooking much more often than I ever have in my life, it's been kinda fun-and scary-to see what I might come up with.
I made a roast in the crockpot. I threw in some onions, a can of Cream of Mushroom soup, some Worcestershire sauce, a clove of garlic, some beef bullion, beef gravy, water and some salt and pepper. It all sounded good, but would it be?
Yum! It was a juicy roast with a nice sauce to go over it!
Knowing we probably wouldn't get to the leftover roast, I took it and made soup.
Again, just kinda threw a bunch of stuff into the crock...the meat, onions, a can of peas, a can of corn, can of carrots, beef bullion, water, and rice...let it cook for 6 hours or so. We had it for lunch the next day and the it got a big two thumbs up from Henry and hubby. Henry ate so much I thought he might split down the sides! I couldn't believe he was eating all those veggies and asking for more. YAY!
I don't usually serve canned veggies, but they were a total steal at Target and it worked slick in this soup....plus it was easy. I quickly put this all together in just a few minutes because I had everything pre-sliced or canned. I made it just before we ran out the door for dinner at my Mother-In-Law's.
I think I am going to offer more canned veggies to Henry to see if that is what he will prefer...some veggies are better than none, right?
