These are a really nice variety of pumpkin, the flesh is firm but sweet and juicy, not dry and not fibrous and stringy. Henny Penny I can send you some seed of them along with the cosmos seeds if you want, they are sweet grey pumpkins, peter cundall's favourite. If they grow here you should get them to crop with your hotter summer

PostSubject: Potato Soup   Thu Jan 03, 2013 7:08 pm



Perfect Potato Soup
Prep Time: 10 MinutesCook Time: 20 MinutesDifficulty: EasyServings:12
Print Recipe

Ingredients
■6 slices Thin Bacon, Cut Into 1-inch Pieces
■1 whole Medium Onion, Diced
■3 whole Carrots, Scrubbed Clean And Diced
■3 stalks Celery, Diced
■6 whole Small Russet Potatoes, Peeled And Diced
■8 cups Low Sodium Chicken Or Vegetable Broth
■3 Tablespoons All-purpose Flour
■1 cup Milk
■1/2 cup Heavy Cream
■1/2 teaspoon Salt, More To Taste
■ Black Pepper To Taste
■1/2 teaspoon Cajun Spice Mix
■1 teaspoon Minced Fresh Parsley
■1 cup Grated Cheese Of Your Choice

Preparation Instructions


Add bacon pieces to a soup pot over medium heat and cook bacon until crisp and fat is rendered. Remove the bacon from the pot and set it aside. Pour off most of the grease, but do not clean the pot.

Return the hot to medium-high heat and add the onions, carrots, and celery. Stir and cook for 2 minutes or so, then add the diced potatoes. Cook for 5 minutes, seasoning with salt, pepper, and Cajun spice.

Pour in the broth and bring it to a gentle boil. Cook for 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are starting to get tender. Whisk together the flour and the milk, then pour into the soup and allow the soup to cook for another 5 minutes.

Remove half to 2/3 the soup and blend in a blender/food process until completely smooth. Pour it back into the soup pot and stir to combine. Let it heat back up as you taste for seasonings, adding more of what it needs. Stir in parsley, reserving a little for garnish.

Serve in bowls garnished with parsley, grated cheese and crisp bacon pieces.

PostSubject: Taco Soup   Tue Oct 15, 2013 10:17 am

Easiest recipe ever. Only uses one pot. Great for large groups. Easy to adjust.

2 pounds ground beef
1 large onion, chopped (opt.- I don't use)
1 can pinto beans
1 can Ranch style beans
1 can Dark Red Kidney Beans
1 can whole kernel corn ( I use Hominy, much better in MHO )
2 can Rotel tomatoes (I use one can (your choice of heat level) and a can of Petite chopped tomatoes)
1 can tomato sauce
1 pkg. (about 1 ounce) mild taco seasoning mix (I have used mild chili seasoning too, just as good)
1 pkg. original hidden valley ranch dressing(dry)

Preparation:

Brown ground beef (and onions) in a large soup pot. Drain. Add remaining ingredients, liquid and all, and simmer for an hour or so. When ready, serve in big soup bowls, with shredded cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips or have a skillet of hot cornbread and butter.
Whole process only takes about 30 minutes and then you just need to let simmer awhile to mix up those flavors. You can put in crockpot too, but brown your meat first in a skillet. Better texture, less fat.

My notes: I also add a can of Charro Beans to mine. I use half a pkg of taco seasoning, because it "talks" to me later. You can add more beans, less beans, hotter seasoning mixes, whatever your family likes. Just play with it until it suits your tastes. You'll find tons of variations on line. (Probably have been adapted to individual tastes.) This also freezes well but I usually don't have enough left to freeze.

Enjoy

Same here, can't say that I remember ever seeing ranch beans. Sounds good and I'm going to make it soon, probably over the weekend.

PostSubject: Easiest ever vegetable soup   Mon Nov 25, 2013 1:34 pm

This is perfect for the busy holiday season or anytime really. I have been making this for years. The little recipe that I cut out of a magazine is all yellowed from age.

Easy vegetable Soup
1 box Hamburger Helper Beef Pasta
1 lb hamburger meat
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 bag frozen mixed vegetables

Brown your meat. Drain. Add 8 cups of water, the seasoning packet (I whisk it into some of the water) and tomatoes, bring to boil. Add noodles, cook for about 6 min, reduce heat and add vegetables. Let simmer about 10 min so veggies get hot.

That's it. You can of course add anything you care to but it has lots of taste as is and only takes about 40 min from start to finish.



I don't know what the white flecks are in the picture, reflections maybe?

If you have leftovers, the noodles tend to keep sucking up the broth so you can add more water later. It doesn't affect the flavor any.
