i"m thinking of making crudite' soup tomorrow.

i brought home an entire untouched tray of crudite this morning from work (leftover from sports dept. catering), so while i'm putting up our halloween decorations, i'll dump it in the crock pot with chicken stock, fresh herbs from the garden, and some leftover trimmings of pork ribs, browned first of course.

I made ham and bean soup yesterday. Perfect for the rainy, windy weather here in Charleston.

you wouldn't believe how much food gets thrown out every weekend here. it's truely a sin. and the kitchen doesn't participate in something like "city harvest" to collect it for the homeless. not sure why.

i usually try to bring whole, untouched trays of food down to the overnight operations areas so they can have a snack. i'm one of the few overnighters who have access to all areas, so i do my weekend night rounds with a big cart, lol. not a crash cart; a food cart.

often there's whole trays of sandwiches, salads, several whole pizzas, and massive desserts, but fruits, crudite, and little treats come home with me for the family and my parrots.

YUM, that sounds good!

Tonight, I'm just making an easy chicken-noodle/vegie soup in the crock-pot.

I love the crock-pot this time of year.

The Cheating Chicken Tortilla Soup turned out great and quick to fix!

I just used boiled chicken, some chicken stock and a jar of salsa...added tortilla chips, cheese and sour cream after I heated it. No measuring, nothing special...really fast. The stock was homemade.
