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!!!
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
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)
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
