We are big soup folks. We just like it. In fact I had soup for lunch and dinner today.
For dinner I fixed Dump-A-Can soup. It's about the easiest thing there is to make. I thought maybe some of you would like it, so here's the recipe:
1lb ground beef, crumbled, browned, and drained
1/2 medium cabbage, finely chopped
2 cans kidney or chili beans
2 cans corn
2 cans green beans
2 cans tomato sauce
2 cans stewed tomatoes
2 cans water
In a large stock pot combine all ingredients, simmer until cabbage is tender.
**Do not drain the cans- just dump them into pot. Hence, the name.
**I usually do not salt this dish as the canned veggis are already salted.
**Because of the beans, this recipe can be made without the ground beef. It will, therefore, have only a couple of "Points" per serving.
**We like to eat this with a side of Mamaliga, which is Romanian for Polenta, which is Spanish for Corn Meal Mush. We like our mamaliga smothered in cheese. There went all those points!
P.S. Sebastian went to the doctor on Monday. They left the shunt in his face because it was still doing it's job. He has however gone back to work with some success. He did say that he kept breaking out into a cold sweat today. Obviously he has not fully recovered yet. Soon. He is on his way back. Keep praying for him. It makes me nervous that he is working construction with an open wound (He does keep it covered at work- but this is framing and such).
