Snow and Vegetable Soup

I have decided to start posting some of my recipes as I think of it. So today the kids and I made Vegetable Soup
  1. Brown 1 # of ground meat, I used venison.
  2. Add 1 chopped onion,
  3. garlic to taste,
  4. 2 potatoes,chopped
  5. 2 ribs of celery,chopped
  6. about 3 cups of frozen mixed veggies, I even used 1/2 of a turnip, then wished I hadn't 'cause I like it raw and wanted to munch on it.
  7. Add 1 large can of V-8 juice
  8. and 2 pints of broth, I used turkey broth.
  9. Let simmer all day or afternoon. Once the raw veggies are tender it's good to go.

Daniel took this photo from our front porch around 7 this morning. He used the flash and look what it did to the snowflakes. I think it's very cool!

"Poor Mans Pot Pie"

I made a new concoction for dinner yesterday. And since I've been inspired by Stephanie at http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/, I decided to post the recipe.

Unfortunately I did not have the foresight to take a photo with my new pink pentax :(

4 Boneless/skinless chicken thighs
1 can cream of mushroom soup
garlic powder to taste
1/4 cup finely diced onion
2-3 cups frozen mixed vegetables
elbow macaroni

1. Cook the chicken thoroughly then shred and add the onion and garlic.
2. When the onion is cooked to your taste, add the can of soup.
3. Once the soup is heated through add the veggies and continue to cook stirring to prevent sticking.

Cook enough pasta to serve 4-6.

Combine drained pasta and the meat/veggie/sauce mixture.
