Wrong!! yet again…

Yes!  Our weatherpersons have outdone themselves yet again!!  Remember my last blog about the HUGE winter storm that was on it’s way???  Well, we ended up getting 1/16th", and that’s being generous.  OH!!  And these same weatherpersons are now patting themselves on the back because they somehow kept the rain away!!  WHAT?????  IO want their jobs!  I can lick my finger, put it against the wind and do better than they do!
 
Thing is, I was planning to do lots of winter cooking today:  Homade soup and bread, tiramisu…  But I decided that even though it’s not rainy, I would cook anyhow!  The bread recipe is a secret one, but the soup recipe is posted below.
 
I’m SOOO glad that I took the time to paint that threshold under the backdoor!!  Those 7 drops of water that landed on it would have rotted it for sure.  I wanna move to Montana!!!Crying
 
I moved our ‘fake’ Christmas tree into the family room today.  Mrs Serious is in charge from here on, but I have to say that the angel at the top is bigger than half of the tree!!  I’ll take pics when it’s completed!  I thought that the dogs would be all over it but it seems that my Santa hat is really what they crave!! 
 
So here’s that recipe!!  (It’s REALLY good!)  Makes 4 servings as an entree and 8 as a soup
 
Ingredients:
 
1lb ground beef( or 20oz ground turkey) browned and drained
 
1 medium onion, chopped
 
1 cup celery, larged diced
 
1 cup carrots, sliced
 
2 cups potatoes cut into 1" chunks
 
2 (11.5oz) cans of V8 juice (one can Spicy, is desired)
 
15oz water
 
2 tsp salt and 2 tablespoons of sugar
 
 
Brown the ground meat in a large Dutch oven and drain.
 
Add the veggies and the liquid
 
Add the salt and Sugar
 
Bring to a low simmer and cook for 2 to 3 hours, barely covered, until veggies are tender.
 
 
At this point I like to add other ingredients such as chopped kale, corn, peas, etc!  I suggest kale!!  It’s a very healthy food!  As usual, it’s even better the second day!
 
Now how easy is that????  Now I want to know what your favorite winter meals are??
 
 
OH!!  The news is on!!  They are now saying that there MAY be some more rain tonight and tomorrow!!  PFFFFT!!!!!!
 
Have a great weekend!!  I’ll be here doing my Serious rain dance!  Here I go!!  Ungh!! Ungh!!  Wadda wadda!!!  Snerk!!  ‘OUCH!!"  ….. maybe tomorrow

    I don’t know what’s going on up there, but it has been raining really hard down here for the last two hours.  Of course I am responsible again seeing as I am having a blue kind of night.  But…I do love to fall asleep listening to the rain. 
    Head south!  Bring soup and secret bread!!

    Hi Bob,
    I make a stew with the same ingredients you use for your soup, but instead of dicing the potatos I mash them and pour the stew over them…..so yummy and comforting!

    Well, you should be getting some of that rain we had a couple of days ago.  It was working it’s way south.  We had quite a downpour for most of a day and night.  Hope you get some of it.  That soup sounds great!  Never thought about using V-8.  Will give it a try.  We have tons of Turkey stock from Thanksgiving to start with….

    Rain here, this time of year, makes ice which is not fun. 
     
    But it is snowing here today maybe 2-3 inches.  I’ll trade you states

  7. Becca says:

    Your soup sounds delicious! I love meatloaf and mushy (mashed) potatoes when it gets like this. We survived the rains and flooding weather and now the sun is out. I’ll take it!

    Tiramisu!!!  My fav!!
     
    I made a similar soup yesterday and we would have has biscuits with it but Dad sprayed oven cleaner in the oven and then forgot about it.  I come in and heat up the oven … then I open the door … a huge vapor cloud of poisonous fumes emerged.  Weird thing … it’s a self-cleaning oven.
