Wednesday:) What’s Cookin’ Miss Toni?

29 Oct

“When the weather gets cold, the Quarantined get cookin’.”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis

***************************

It’s been such a busy week… NOT! It’s been cold and dreary and misty and did I say dreary already? When it gets chilly, I go into polar bear hibernating mode. But, that’s only after I bake and cook and simmer and mess up the entire kitchen.

My favorite cold weather recipe is “Everything But the Kitchen Sink Soup.” Actually, you know me, I don’t use no stinkin’ recipes. I just go into the freezer, taking my life into my own hands, searching for possible soup ingredients, while frozen tubes of foiled wrapped cookie dough and hash browns come flying out and fall on my bare feet. Ouch!

I found a bunch of cool ingredients. Frozen mixed vegetables, spinach, a left-over sour dough bread bowl from Panera, and a couple of packages of meatloaf. In the fridge, I found celery, 1/2 a red cabbage, and 3 onions. In the pantry, a couple of cans of tomatoes with roasted chilies, two big containers of broth, and a couple of cans of cream of mushroom soup. Hmm? Did I miss anything?

I boiled and simmered that big pot all day, and it made the greatest soup. I put that defrosted leftover bread bowl in the toaster oven and added the soup, topped it with some cheese… oh man… heaven in a bowl.

I’m making you hungry, aren’t I? Well, come on over. I have some left over soup.

    I love my crockpot this time of the year. In it I throw everything also. Especially if I am making a stew…whatever meat and vegetables that are left over from previous meals find themselves in my crockpot. And since it cooks all day I dont have to worry about what I am making tonight for dinner.
