Today kicks off the first day of my month-long Recipe Extravaganza Contest. All you have to do to be eligible to win the weekly prize is post a recipe. This week, it needs to be an appetizer, soup, or salad. Post between today and next Tuesday. I'll draw the winner on Wednesday, Sept. 9th. Check out all the details on the Recipe Extravaganza and Contest post. This week's prize is a “Smart Women Read Romance” T-shirt and 2-oz bottle of Bath and Body Works “P.S. I Love You” lotion. Can I tell you how good this stuff smells?
Since autumn is just around the corner for some of you....really, here in Houston, we have about 3 more months of summer to get through. Honestly, we still have leaves on the trees at Christmas! I miss West Virginia and Colorado sometimes. Anyway, here's a cozy, easy Vegetable Soup recipe. It's even easier than the Italian Vegetable Soup I make quite often. You don't have to chop the vegetables with this new recipe.
Sunday Night Vegetable Soup
1 pound ground meat
1 medium onion, chopped
1 6-oz can tomato paste
1 cup water
2 16-oz packages frozen mixed vegetables
1 ½ teaspoons red hot sauce (I make this optional)
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 11-oz can zesty tomato soup
Brown meat and onions in heavy dutch oven. Pour off fat. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 30-60 minutes.
To be eligible for the prize YOU MUST LEAVE YOUR E-MAIL. If I can't contact you, you won't be eligible to win.
