soup and bread

A few days ago I was rumaging around in the freezer and found a quart jar of beef stock dated Feb 06, so I yanked that sucker outta there. Only I knew I did not have a piece of beef that I wanted to sacrifice for a soup. So am using two pounds of ground beef, bout 95% fat beef. I have never used ground meat for a vegetable beef soup before. Will also go heavy on the carrots. Yesterday I dug about 25 pounds of carrots and brought 19 pounds to the house. Dh wanted them out of the ground so he could rototill that area of the garden.

Bread is the NY TImes bread.

You wouldn't want to PM me that recipe, would you? It sounds divine!

DS is out of town working tonight so I think it will be eating out - I'm so "cooked out" this week! Actually, I'm not cooked out - I'm sick and tired of cleaning the kitchen!!!!!!!!!

You will still love the ground beef in your soup. It's got that "old fashioned" feel to it. Enjoy all those carrots!!!! I've got a recipe somewhere around here (I feel sure it's on the "net" too, for a casserole using grated carrots, maybe some cream, and horseradish - I can't remember what else is in there right now.

aubergine pricked and baked til mushy, then scraped of skin, gently spiced and stewed with tomato and onions and served over pasta. We3 usually have the aubergine thing room temp as a salad, but need warmth tonight, so I figure it will work over pasta and hot.

I have several thick slices of Tuesday's pork roast left over. Reheat in a silverstone pan with a lid and a bit of broth for steam, add veggies aound the meat after the flip, top with the gravy...should be good. Third night I'll do it with fennel flavored pasta sauce and serve over penne. I wasn't crazy to get such a big hunk of meat.

I do something very similar, then buzz it in the blender with some evoo, grilled onion and garlic with some spices (depends on my mood, a bit of cardamom, curry, paprika tiny pinch of cayenne etc.). Delicious over pasta, polenta or pureed potatoes, or as a condiment for stuffed vegs. I also do pretty much the same thing with mushrooms, bell peppers and artichokes (with artichokes, pressure cooked then ground through "passaverdure", evoo, garlic, lemon juice and parsley). They also freeze well like pesto, make a lifesaver dinner rescue idea when you are in no mood (or have no time) for cooking!

Aidan just told me he wants chocolate rice casserole for dinner

He says you just put some chocolate in there and some cheese.

I don't have a clue what we'll really be having. I feel like noodles. What I'd like is some thai food.
