S Is For Soup Nazi

Now there is something I haven't done in years.... sledding down the hill in the winter.
I can remember as a kid, it was fun to get wet and cold out on the hill. Now, I'm not so sure my old bones can handle the run, let alone the cold.
So I decided to tell you one of my many talents. It has even dubbed me "The Soup Nazi".




I can make a soup out of just about anything. Whether it's leftovers in the fridge, a recipe or off the cuff with fresh ingredients, I can make a mean soup or stew.
During the colder months it is what we eat more and more. Hearty meals was the soul in the Fall and Winter.

So recently I made a beef vegetable soup in my slow cooker,  and I figured this would be a great chance to give ya'll the recipe.
Ingredients:
1 lb beef, stewed or cut steak ( I prefer buying a steak and cutting myself.)
1 1/2 cups baby carrots
1 1/2 cups green beans, cut
2 large potatoes, peeled and cut
1/2 an onion, chopped
1 can of niblets corn
1 small can of tomato sauce
3 cups water
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
2 packages of beef broth or 2 OXO cubes

Add all ingredients to your crock-pot. Cook on HIGH for around 9 hours. Stir occasionally to avoid sticking to the bottom. Serve warm with a fresh baguette.

So there is one of the many soups or stews I will make throughout this cold season. Do you have a favorite slow-cooker soup you make often??

  3. I love soup and eat plenty of it in the Winter. I haven't made any in the slow cooker though. Now I'll have to try it!

  4. I love making soup all year round but have never tried using my slow cooker! I really don't know why, it would be much easier! In the fall I love making roasted vegetable soup or butternut squash soup. I don't use a recipe, just freestyle Lol!

  8. My specialty is soups - my husband's grandmother agreed with the rest of the family that my soups were exceptional "now, she added," if only we can get her to make a decent cup of tea". (too weak evidently, and my mother says the 'tide is always out' on them - maybe I should become the tea Nazi and shout at them - " no tea for you!."

  9. Mmmmm! That looks sooooo gooood! I do have tons of soup recipes but slow-cooked Chinese-style soup is kinda different - it's more like broth.

Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
