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??

  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.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?
