We are (prayerfully, hopefully, God-willing) closing on our house a month from tomorrow, which means it’s time to pack. It also means that I need to use up everything in my cupboards, fridge, and freezer, because even though we’re only moving 50.4 miles away, I’m not moving our food. I hate to move food. I want to start fresh in my new house, right down to the groceries in my cabinets. People who constantly move all their leftover food is how you end up discovering a can of soup that expired four years ago. (Not that I’m speaking from experience here…)
Soooooo, in my desire emptying out the cabinets, I threw together a yummy, satisfying soup today that really helps warm me up on this chilly, early-fall evening.
Drain and rinse the carrots, corn, and potatoes. (There are very few actual uses for canned potatoes, but slow-simmered soup helps take the “canned” taste away.) Rough-chop the cabbage. I tossed that all into my slow-cooker and mixed it up.
Brown the ground beef and drain it well – I rinse mine in very hot water. Then I tossed that into the slow cooker and added all of my spices, plus the beef bouillon cubes and about 8-10 cups of water.
Six hours later, it’s hot and steamy, done and delicious!
