Wait… she COOKS?!

Don't get too excited. It's nothing fancy. And NO I am not going all domestic on you, but I did want to share this super easy recipe I stole from bis sis. 

So yeah, I can make about 4 things. 

1. Baked Ziti
2. White Chicken Chili
3. Filet mignon with goat cheese and balsamic glaze (wild card, I know) 

Aaaaand Vegetable Soup. 

That's about the span of my conquests in the kitchen...yea. 

Since it has decided to snow in Lexington, I have decided it is the perfect weekend to make this vegetable soup I am obsessed with. 

Let me show you how easy it is. AND it is super healthy :) win/win right? 


3 cans V8 juice
3 cans Del Monte diced tomatoes (basil, garlic and oregano kind)
2 cans Del Monte corn
2 cans Del Monte sliced carrots
2 cans Del Monte diced potatoes
1 can Allens seasoned green beans, cut up. 
1 lb. stew meat, brown before adding to croc pot. 

Drain veggies first, then throw it all in, cook, eat. 

EASY people. ;) 

Oh and guess what else?

I am co-hosting a twitter party this Sunday as part of the Live Famously campaign. Tune in for all the red carpet gossip ;) Somebody is gonna win a trip to LA to meet Perez Hilton and live it up like a celeb... just sayin' 

So don't miss it!

Have a great weekend!! xo

this might make you said - that soup is NOT healthy or good for you! them cans is full of SODIUM = water weight!! a quick change to make it healthier for you is to change out the cans to veggies for frozen veggies. still super easy! good luck!

I don't think any vegetable soup recipe will ever be close to my grandmother's, but I'll have to give this one a try. It sounds too easy to not try! Happy Weekend!

I blame my mother for my serious inability to cook when I moved out. We ate a lot of boxed meals and I wasn't encouraged to help in the kitchen. When I moved out I could macaroni & cheese (from a box!), scrambled eggs, and Hamburger Helper. This was 7 years ago. I'm still not a great cook, but I've improved a lot!

Jill said...

This recipe sounds pretty delicious Lou Lou ;) I might have to add it to my cookbook and whip it up this weekend! I loved my grandmother's vegetable soup and it has been forever since I've had any! YUM

Vegetable soup is wonderful in the winter! I know this sounds gross, but it really works and is delish. You can use Veg-all - as many cans as you need - instead of all the separate cans of different veggies. Just a little tip! :)

Jennifer said...
