Our friends blessed us with a delicious pork dinner with italian peas and homemade applesauce...yum. Thanks. We put the leftovers to good and extended use. Ahhh... warm soup on a cold day.
Here is my assistant chef. She helped make it and put all the ingredients in the pot. In addition she even served everyone and made a beautiful table that I wish I had captured here. Man I think food is pretty!
Here is what I did.
Added a pat of butter to the pot.
Strip cut the leftover pork and a small sweet onion.
Plopped in all the rest of my organic carrots from the fridge, leftover cabbage, the italian peas, pre-soaked brown rice, salt, pepper and tumeric. (I wanted to add this into our diet as I have read it is a great antinflammatory and good for fighting cancer) I am going to look up more on how it is used as a flavoring. I thought it added a rich golden color and couldn't really tell if I could taste it but the soup was the bomb!! Yum!
I put it on high for a couple hours then low for the rest of the day.
Well, not any kind of new recipe but it was fun and best of all soo easy for any mom who is busy or preparing for hospital admission. I will share my other easy and fun one I tried when I had to cook a roast waiting in my fridge. Let me just say that it has to be super easy right now for me or I don't make it at all. My time is very limited in this area currently.
