Soup is Good Food!

Its getting that time of year to start really enjoying soup again! Isn't that great!? There is nothing better on a cold day than a warm bowl of soup. And so fulfilling.

A few weeks ago I decided that I was going to make some soup, and realized I don't have a soup pot. In KMart after looking at soup pots, I ended up purchasing a crock-pot instead. I have never owned/cooked in one before, anxiously awaiting my first experiement with this cookware. I have no recipes, but do have a nice tri-tip in the freezer waiting to go into the pot.

Recipes? feel free to share! ;-)


  1. I make a mean Beef Bourginon! Does that count?

  2. I have no recipes...whenever I want a bowl of soup I crack open a box of Mrs. Grass (with the golden nugget) I fucking love that stuff. ;)


  3. Oooh. Did the Crock-Pot come with a recipe book?

    I know there are tons of recipes out there on the interweb. Try searching for "slow cooker" and see what that gets you.

    Can you tell we have a slow cooker, but that I haven't used it much yet?

  4. Y'all have Albertsons? Go to the meat section and get some Country Pork Ribs. (it is where I buy mine, not all places have the cut, or at least they don't call it that). Then pick up a bottle of Kraft Original BBQ Sauce. Put the ribs in the crock pot, pour the sauce over them. Cook them on low for hours and hours (about 10 - 12 of them) and then serve with whatever...Make sure and invite some friends. This is a seriously good Autumn evening mean. Not the haute cuisine - but we're talking crock pot here! ;-)

  5. I have a great pork chop recipe.

    get some good loin center chops, put them and a can of Campbells cream of mushroom soup, a bit of garlic and coarse pepper.

    cook on med/high until done( about 1 1/2 hours, depends on the size and amount of the meat.

  6. okay HUNGRY!!!!

    thanks ladies! both sound wonderful.

    SH: now that sounds delicious... whens dinner?

    Steve: Haven't heard of this brand. that good huh?

  7. I was thinking just this morning of doing an "it's autumn...time for soup" post. You beat me to it!

    Thanks for stopping by my place.

  8. Sunday was cabbage and tater day, with ham of course. Today it was chicken soup...home made. And it's been a balmy 80 degs.
    I love some soup.
