a simple soup recipe

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I will do this again! As my husband says about most of my kitchen creations, "This is a repeat!"

This morning, I put a whole chicken in the crockpot and sprinkled it with a package of dry Italian dressing mix. Tonight, I threw some some frozen vegetables (the mix I had on hand was carrots, corn, peas, and green beans) in a bowl, poured in some of the chicken broth from the crockpot, and used the breast meat of the chicken for a really good soup creation. It needed just a little zap in the microwave to heat up the frozen vegetables, but that's it.

I decided not to add the vegetables to the crockpot, because my crockpot darn near liquifies a chicken, and then the bones would have been all mixed in.

Super simple...the crockpot does the work for you.

I used to have a crockpot but gave it away years ago. Your soup sounds so easy and delicious too.

These days I only make pea and ham soup by throwing in a huge boiler stacks of bacon bones or ham bones (bacon ones are more tasty) and then wash a full packet of yellow split peas and throw in with a dessertspoon cooking salt. I usually simmer for about 3 hours then remove the bones and take off the meat and put the meat back in the boiler. Have to actually simmer it all enough for the peas to dissolve. That's it! And everytime it gets reheated, the soup gets thicker and thicker....yummo!!

Apart from that I use a can opener and a tin. emoticon
