Any guesses what Matthew bought for me? He wanted to get me something for a surprise. This is what it is. Keep reading and I'll tell you what it is...
Our supper last night was this...
|I liked the colors|
|grab a kiddo that had been lurking in the kitchen and wanted to help, and have her stir|
|I asked Matthew what he wanted for a dessert, and he said Oatmeal Raisin cookies, so I made him some!|
1lb hamburg or sausage cooked
1 C onion
1 C carrots (I use my canned carrots so they are already cooked)
1 C celery
2 garlic cloves
1 Qt stewed tomatoes (that is what I use because that is what I have from the garden)
15 oz can of Great Northern Beans
15oz can of Red Kidney Beans
1/2 lb Ditali Noodles, if you can find them, I never can so I use the small pinwheels
15 oz V8 Juice (more)
15 oz Tomato Juice
1 T white vinegar 1.5 t salt 1 t Oregano 1 t basil
1/2 t pepper 1/2 t Thyme
Cook noodles until al dente.
Cook beef/sausage with onion, garlic, celery, S & P.
Then add thyme, basil, vinegar, oregano.
In a large pot (it makes a huge amount, so get a big pot!) Mix everything together. Simmer until warm, serve with bread if you want and enjoy!
I usually add more of the V8 Juice and Tomato juice because the noodles soak up some, and it's nice to have some "broth" in the soup. It's very filling and usually tastes better the next day when all the flavors have blended!
Your final clues on my gift!!
