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.

  11. Soups are quite scrumptious on a cold afternoon...

    I don't have a favorite but I have a sneaking suspicion that this recipe will be up there!

    Spectacular post for the letter "S"!

    Thanks for linking.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
