First of all can I just say, why is it that I can't go into Target without spending an arm and a leg?!!? Eric and I started our weekend by going to Target "just for some valentines" and left with a whole van full of different things that we "needed."LOL I think it's some sort of vortex that sucks you in and doesn't let you leave until you've spent at least $100.
Today has been a very productive day so far. Especially since I only got around 4 hours of sleep last night.lol So far, I've made 3 gallon freezer bags full of plain and chocolate chip pancakes and 1 bag full of french toast. I also made probably a whole freezer bag worth of pancakes that the kids inhaled for breakfast while I was cooking.lol Tomorrow, I'll work on the waffles and one more bag of french toast. I just couldn't do anymore today. I also managed to pour milk on Isaac's head and all over the floor. Don't ask.lolol I did get them both cleaned up though, so that should count for something.lol
It's now noon and I'm just about to start the wash but I wanted to post my recipe for Beef Noodle Soup so that I can remember how I make it since it seems to be the littles favorite soup right now.
Beef Noodle Soup
1/2 pound or so of leftover beef (can be roast, steak, whatever)
4 cups or so of beef stock (can be leftover from potroast or canned)
2 cups frozen veggies (we like corn, peas, greenbeans, carrots, lima beans)
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 rib celery, chopped
2 cups water
1 cup canned tomato, chopped(1/2 the can)
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp dried dill
1 tsp salt
a generous helping of pepper
Cook all this for about an 1/2 hour on med heat. Add a grain. I used egg noodles but I think leftover rice would be good too. Even leftover whole grain rice would be good in this. I also think barley or potatoes would be good. Cook until noodles or whatever are done. Serve with a nice crusty bread and a nice green salad.
