Just rocked some "homemade" vegetable soup. I quoted homemade because it was from a mix. But, I put in thyme, oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt. Then canned diced tomatoes, chopped up an onion, a few carrots and two celery stalks. Then, instead of using all water, I used half vegetable broth.
It was still a little bland. But, heck, if I had followed the recipe, it would have been the most boring soup ever. Bob, c'mon! The website specifically says that no seasonings are added, but it sure doesn't say that on the package. It said, "add your own seasonings". I'm lucky I thought to add my own. Problem is, I just guessed. And guessed right, but still. Now that I know, I'll make it again.
Made a TON of soup. There were six of us, and some of us had 2nds, and there are still about 7 servings leftover. Lunch for next week!
DD#2 has decided to eschew pork, beef, lamb, etc. She'll eat poultry and fish, but she has decided that the concept of eating red meat is a little gross. That's fine, I'm not going to try to dissuade her, it just makes making meals a little more difficult, and as long as she'll eat poultry and fish, I think she'll be getting enough protein. Vitamin B might be an issue though. The only real issue is, she LOVES burgers and bacon. Oh well, it's her choice.
Here's tomorrow's dinner...I'm hoping they turn out good. I have the black beans soaking right now for tomorrow's cooking. I'm the only one that will be eating the chipotle ketchup since the rest of my family is a bunch of wimps when it comes to heat.
