Best soup ever.

December 11th, 2012 at 01:07 pm

I accidentally made the best soup ever last night when I was 'cleaning out' the fridge.

I used one head of broccoli, four potatoes, one onion, four pieces of bacon, chopped, four carrots, a bag of frozen corn, a 16 ounce tub of sour cream, a cup of milk, two chickn bouillion cubes, and about eight cups of water. I boiled it all until it was nice and creamy. Then topped it with cheddar cheese before serving. It was sooooo good. I couldn't believe it.

I made banana bread to serve with it. What a meal, and to think that was from the cast offs. Two cheers for cooking at home.

Thanks to all of you for the advice on my last post, about the best way to approach financial goals. It's given me a lot to think about.

Tonight should be fun. I'm taking my mom on her annual holiday out. Tonight it's dinner with all of the family, then me and the kids are taking her to a drive-thru christmas light display at the state park. She loves that kind of thing. Hopefully she will have fun!

    hmmmm, you've discovered a major secret...it's incredibly easy to make homemade soup. If you live in a region of cold winters, it's wonderful to return home to simmering soup in a crockpot/slo cooker. Lucky Robin explanation in her food stamp experiment blog works for all ingredients. It's whatever in the fridge + herbs you like infused in a liquid. If you want it's 'creamy,' sprinkle flour into melted butter and add milk stirring to get rid of lumps and you've created a 'roux,' super easy.

    I've always made soup but usually from a recipe. I've never just thrown random stuff in like that. It was fantastic!

    I often think the best soups are made by accident.

    That sounds like a delicious soup, indeed! Funny how sometimes just cleaning stuff out of the fridge can lead to a successful dish like that. The best part is that you have the insurance of remembering what you put in it, so you can do it again... my Mom would make stuff that was delicious, and then forget what was in it! Wink Jerry
