Excellent changes, you can never have too much garlic

Yeah that's pretty much my cooking philosophy for everything but desserts.

I just made a really good pot of soup last night.

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
32 oz chicken broth
32 oz of Spaghetti Sauce
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrots
2 cans green beans *drained*
2 cans great northern beans *drained*
2 cans kidney beans drained
garlic powder
onion powder
Italian seasoning


brown ground beef with garlic powder, onion powder and italian seasoning * I do this to taste..so however much you think you would like*

In crock pot combine all other ingredients and turn on. Drain hamburger meat and add to crock pot. You can cook this either on low for 8 hours or high for 4.

I think it's 32 oz of Spaghetti sauce..it may be 64. I can't remember how big the cans were and the trash has already gone out!

Here's a yummy soup that i like. It's vegan but i'm sure you can add your favorite non-vegan alternatives

Creamy Cauliflower Soup

6c veggie broth. (i actually prefer the no-chicken broth but it's expensive)
1 head of cauliflower chopped into bite sizes.
2 onions chopped
6+ cloves of minced garlic
thyme (i use a pinch of dried)
3 potatoes. (i use regular brown kind.. i use 5 if i do reds) chopped into bites too
1 packages of vegetarian sausage sliced up (I like Trader Joes Italian Sausages.. they yummy)
1/4 gallon of plain light soymilk

Sautee the chopped onion in a few tbs of veggie broth in your soup pot. (or oil if you prefer) Once they're tender add the potatoes and broth. Cook for 15 minutes on medium heat. Add cauliflower and cook for another 15 or until everything is tender. Also add the thyme and garlic. At the end of the 15 minutes add the milk and soysages. Bring to a boil and its done!

This is my mom's recipe and it's very kid friendly. (at least for my kids ) Alex eats it and says MMMM the whole time

I made a "throw stuff from the pantry and freezer into a pot" soup yesterday that turned out really well. I had wanted to make some kind of Asian inspired soup, with shrimp, and have it in a flavorful broth (I love brothy soup). But with some kind of vegetable too... And this is what I came up with.

I had a bag of frozen raw shrimp that I thawed, cleaned and cut into chunks (they were huge shrimp) and saved the shells. I put the shrimp shells along with some spices (a couple dried ginger slices, a few pieces of dried anise, some dried coriander seeds, and a few whole cloves) in a pot with water and simmered it for about an hour. Then I strained off the shrimp shells and spices and added about a half teaspoon red chili paste and about a half teaspoon of fish sauce to it, along with the juice of a lime. I had two packs of ramen noodles in the pantry (shrimp, and "oriental" flavor) so I put both seasoning packets in as well. Added about a half a bag of frozen chopped turnip greens that was in the freezer, and let it come to a boil. Then I added the shrimp and ramen noodles and turned off the heat and put the lid on to let the shrimp cook and the noodles steep in the broth.

It was really good, boiling the shrimp shells with the spices made for a really nice stock to build off of, the chili paste gave it just a hint of heat, and the bitterness of the greens went really well with the sweetness of the shrimp. My friend loved it, my husband loved it, and I loved it. I'll totally be making that one again.

Miss Vickie,
Did you use sweet potatoes? or yams? I have a bunch of yams...do you think they would work?

Nevermind that question...I just looked online about the difference and discovered that what I have are actually sweet potatoes, so it's all good!
