Vegetable Soup in my Crock Pot
The weather has been very cold and very wet here for many days now. It is good weather for warm, hearty comfort food.
I woke up this morning and decided that some Vegetable Soup sounded good. It was either soup or chilli, and since I had the making of soup it was the winner.
Also, I got this new slow cooker for Christmas and have been looking for reasons to use it.
Starting soup at 9am to have at supper time and not having to pay it much attention in between sounded like a plan to me.
For me there is not a certain recipe I follow when I'm making my soup. Its more like a pot luck kind of dish. If its in the cabinet and it sounds yummy I toss it in.
In the freezer I had a small, cheap cut of beef. One of the kinds that are going to be super tough. I cut that up into tiny bite sized pieces and tossed it in. I also put in a bag of frozen baby limas, half a bag of frozen okra, a can of green beans, a can of corn, and I cut up three medium sized potatoes. I thought my soup was missing something, but I lacked tomato to put in it so I opened a can of tomato soup and dumped in.
See, I told you, I just kind of go with whatever I want.
Now it has been cooking for 4 hours and the house smells warm and yummy, like soup. I hope it will taste as nice as it smells at the end of the day!
