What's for supper?
I tried a recipe my daughter got for me from a friend. I'm quite suprized at how easy and low maintainence. Definitly comfort food. I kinda cheated and used one of those magic wand type blenders, but it IS delicious!

As simple as it was it took me forever. I miss so much when I get "in the zone."

:loveya:

SOUP OF THE EARTH

This is quick and handy. I usually have all ingredients on hand, and it is a nice simple meal with a salad on the side.

1 16 oz can chopped tomatoes
1 medium onion, quartered
1 3 cloves garlic, to taste
1 2 Tablespoons butter or olive oil
2 cans kidney beans (or black, navy, pinto or mixed beans)
teaspoon chili powder
pound muenster or jack cheese

In covered blender, blend tomatoes, garlic and onion until smooth. Melt butter or heat oil in saucepan and add in the tomato mixture. Heat 5 minutes.
In a covered blender, blend the beans with their juices and chili powder.
Add to tomato mixture and simmer 10 15 minutes.

Pour over cubed cheese in bowls and serve with tortilla chips.

I like to fix it up and put it in a crockpot on low.

Enjoy!

2. I bought ingredients for a shepherd's pie
but I'm feeling unmotivated. I could just eat ham sandwiches and make it tomorrow.
