1 Peter 5:7  Casting the whole of your care (all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all), on Him, for He care for you……”

“The Soup” is a basic vegetable recipe that has been requested many times on my Facebook page.  This is whatever you want it to be and is a great way to clean out your freezer.  The only items that really don’t freeze well are:  potatoes, pastas and rice.  Plan on adding these when you defrost.  I make only vegetable soup recipes and you can add whatever protein you wish:  shrimp, meatballs, chicken, fish, beef, beans, grains, etc.  The amounts are per your taste.

Basics-Picture is of The Soup with Shrimp

Crushed tomatoes – canned or fresh

Celery

Onions

Carrots

Turnips

Seasonings:  salt, pepper, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, red wine, parsley, bay leaves, thyme, etc.  Whatever you like.

You should chop the vegetables into bite size pieces and cook them in the tomato stock until they are tender.  To freeze place a freezer bag over a large mouth glass and spoon in the soup per single serve sizes.  Squeeze out as much air as possible and close the bag.  Lay the bags flat to freeze.  This takes up less freezer room and is quicker to thaw.

Romans 15:13  May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Making this soup is difficult to give exact measurements since I made it from leftovers.

2-3 cups of cooked turkey cut into bite size pieces

2 cups of leftover turkey gravy

1/2 cup of orzo

2 cups of turkey or chicken broth

1-2 15 oz. cans of mixed vegetables – do not drai

Chicken or turkey broth

Cook the orzo in the broth until tender.  Mix the other ingredients (except the additional broth) together.  Add the cooked orzo.  Add enough broth to the desired thickness that you like.  Salt and pepper to taste.  This soup freezes very well and is a great way to use up leftover turkey or chicken. 12711252_10207345755736120_8654089009927521246_o

12195865_10206677301225175_8456024344166014272_nProverbs 13: 20  He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

One of my son-in-love’s favorites and so easy.  Next time you have chicken for dinner poach an additional chicken breast.  Season the water with season salt and pepper.

1 cooked chicken breast (can use rotisserie chicken) – chopped or shredded into small pieces

1 16 oz. can of chicken or vegetable broth

2 16 oz. cans of cannellini beans (can use navy or great northern beans)

16 oz. can of crushed or diced tomatoes – optional

Add these ingredients into a slow cooker.  Do not drain the beans.

Add seasonings to your taste.  I suggest:

1 T. chili powder

1 t. cumin

1 t. celery flakes

2 T. dried chopped onions

1 t. parsley flakes

1/2 t. cayenne

1/2 t. garlic powder

1/2 t. pepper

1 t. salt – optional if on a low sodium diet

Heat together and taste broth for flavor.  Add more of any of the above to taste.

Add additional chicken or vegetable broth if you want a thinner soup.

This soup freezes well.  You can add cilantro and/or sour cream when you serve the soup.

So God created man in his own image,in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  Genesis 1:27

We have had over 100 lbs. of rice donated to the Manna Meal Free meal Program.  I tested a new recipe to help use some of the rice.  Since we cook for about 200 meals each week, it is really a pain to have to cook rice in the traditional way on top of the stove.  I took a recipe that we have for using uncooked macaroni and letting the casserole sit overnight and replaced the macaroni with rice.  Since rice takes more cooking liquid I increased the liquid.  It came out great.  The variations on this are endless.

2 cups uncooked rice

4 cups water or stock

2 cups of:  chicken, ham, broccoli or mixed vegetables

2 10 oz. cans of cream soup:  mushroom, celery, chicken or even tomato soup (if using large cans use 1/2 of a 50 oz. can of soup)

2-3 cups of shredded cheese or 1/2 lb. processed cheese such as Velveeta-cubed

4 hard boiled eggs – optional and I did not use them

salt and pepper to taste

Could add other seasonings as desired:  garlic, onion, chili powder (tomato soup)

Mix all ingredients together and place in a 9 x 13 pan or half sheet pan.  Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.  Take out and uncover the next day.  Bake at 325′ for 1 hour.  You may want to stir this after about 30 minutes.  You can top this with additional cheese or bread crumbs the last 10-15 minutes if desired.  This serves 12-15.

This multiplies well.  If you add meat this could be a main dish, with vegetables a great side.

Variations:

1.   Rice with diced tomatoes and broth to make the amount of liquid needed: onions, chili powder and peppers for Spanish style rice.

2.  Rice with chicken broth for the liquid, cream of chicken soup, cooked chicken.  Could add broccoli, peas/carrots, or mixed vegetables for main dish.

3.  Rice with ham and ham broth for the liquid, cream of mushroom soup.  Could add broccoli, green beans, mushrooms, etc.

4.  Rice with water for the liquid, cream of mushroom soup.  Add broccoli and/or mushrooms for a great side dish.

5.  Rice with water for liquid.  Bacon and/or sausage, chopped hard boiled eggs.  Add onions, peppers, mushrooms, etc. for a breakfast style casserole.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Psalm 139:  13-14

Sorry I have not posted in a long time, but I have had some serious health issues for a year.  I am back and hope to share more recipes, hints/tips, etc. on this blog.  I was able to get the second cookbook finished while I was not feeling so well.  It has a lot of the recipes from the first cookbook with about 120 new recipes added.  The book contains 300 recipes.  I have personally prepared each of these recipes.  We have a Facebook page at:  Family Favorites II:  Second Helpings.

The books are $15.00 and with shipping they are $18.00.  If you order more than one I can calculate the shipping.  The profits from the book are donated to a local free meal program. I also have set up Paypal, so you can pay online, mail a check or money order.  If you mail payment the book will not be shipped until I receive payment.

Some of favorite recipes in the book are:  Baked French Toast, Cream Cheese Danish, Herbal Cheesecake,  Cottage Cheese Salad,  Carrot Dressing Casserole, Bean Enchilada Bake, Amish Friendship Bread, Candy Bar Cheesecake, Quick Peanut Butter Fudge and White BBQ Sauce.

These would make unique Christmas Presents.  I will sign the books as a free bonus.

Acts 20:32  I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

I have been on a journey to complete my second Cookbook.  I wrote the first one when our children left home and then kept calling back asking how to make _______.  I decided that the best way to get everything together was to print a Cookbook.   To my delight and surprise people wanted to buy some of the books.  After I sold out people were still asking for cookbooks. 

I am constantly searching for new recipes and asking people to share their favorites with me.  I starting compiling recipes for another cookbook almost three years ago.  It is finally done, has been printed and has arrived.  This new book has a lot of the favorites from the first book, but it also has almost 125 NEW recipes.  This book has 300 recipes that have all been personally prepared by ME. 

My wonderful daughter has developed an ecommerce site and has set up a PayPal Account if you would like to purchase one.  There is a tab at the top of this page called:  Adele’s Cookbook.  The cost is $15.00 plus $3.25 for shipping/handling.  If you want multiple copies you can message or email me for the shipping costs.  They are also available for wholesale rates.

After I recover the costs for the printing at least 1/2 (if not all) of the profits will be donated to charity.  I hope some of these recipes that have become our Family Favorites might become some of your family’s favorites also.  Believe me, most of them you will want to have Second Helpings.
