Had a friend over for dinner and a movie to celebrate the end of finals. Neither of us had seen "Walk the Line" and there wasn't really anything we wanted to see in theaters, so she rented the DVD and I made kim pap, which I can only describe as Korean sushi. It took longer to cook the rice than it did to assemble the rolls!

It makes the chicken fall apart so one night I'll put the chicken over rice and then the next day for lunch, I shred it for burritos. The cheese is soft but not part of the salsa unless you stir it up.

Oh, man...that sounds FAST and EASY. And, I think I have all the ingredients. Might have to give this one a shot tomorrow. Tonight we had fried egg sandwiches, home made french fries and a big garden salad! Last night was chicken and rice soup and corn bread. Keep 'em comin' ladies. Love this thread. I always need new ideas!

Okay- another problem has arised!!

DH has to go in and have surgery tomorrow to remove a plate and screws in his mouth (he has a screw sticking through his gums). This is a long story, I won't bore you- but I'll make it short.

He was hit in the face playing softball, had 6 fractures then had the plate and screws put in. 5 months later we were in an accident and the impact of the airbag pushed the screw through the gum line...

So. DO YOU MAKE HOMEMADE SOUPS? Are they easy? Which ones are your favorites?

Ouch! Poor DH!

Homemade chicken noodle soup is about as easy as anything. You can make your own chicken stock by slow cooking a cut up chicken in several cups of water (you need a lot as the stock will reduce some). Throw in carrots, celery, onions, bay leaf, some poutry seasonings & let simmer until the chicken is cooked & basically falling off the bones. The stock gets greasy so you'll want to take out all the chicken pieces & yummy veggies first & then strain the stock. Add the chicken (cut up into bite sized pieces) & veggies back in, along w/some cooked noodles. I cook the noodles separately and add them last - otherwise they are just a soggy, mushy mess.

Beef barley soup isn't difficult either - just takes awhile for the barley to cook. I don't have a specific recipe for that though.

Good luck!

I made Shepherd's Pie, which I have been told by my UK friends is actually "Cottage Pie", since I made it with ground beef. Real "Shepherd's Pie" is made with lamb. It is a mixture of ground beef, onion, green pepper, and seasonings. You pour that into a casserole dish, top it with hot mashed potatoes to form the "crust" and pop it in the oven. Yum!

Actually, I made that last night, so tonight we're having leftovers.

I make minestrone and vegatable soup. When my kids were toddlers I would puree my minestrone and then freeze it in ice cube trays. When it was meal time I would pop a few cubes into the micro and they would have a healthy dinner that was in a texture they could eat. More info then you wanted I'm sure.

I used to do the exact same thing! I'd throw all kinds of veggies in there. It was usually pretty good. I especially loved squash or cabbage in the soaps. Yum. I could go for some minestrone now.

I just use chicken or beef broth (or make you own as mentioned above) and chop, sliver, cut any veggies you want in it...or start dumping cans of veggies/beans/ whatever. I add a few Tbs of Homemade Gourmets Pot Roast seasoning....let it boil, then simmer and have at it. You can make as much as you want just by adding more veggies of chioce. If I have fresh, I use those, if not...it's off to canned or frozen. It's good frozen too. Hominy is good to add to it as well as rinsed black beans. Whatever you have on hand...jsut dump it in

Here's a tomato soup recipe I got from a friend...not tried it yet.

Tomís Tomato SoupSaute:2 T. butter/margarine1 medium onion Blend In (I usually mix these all together, then blend in with thesauted onions):3 T. flour2 t. sugar1 t. salt1/2 t. pepper1/2 t. garlic powder After blending... remove from heat; gradually stir in 2 cups of tomatojuicebring up to a boil; boil and stir for 1 minute Add:6 oz. of softened cream cheese1 1/4 cup milk2 cans (14 oz) whole tomatoes (do not drain)Voila...enjoy! FYI - I usually try to use fresh garlic, and often use seasoned tomatoes(mexican, italian,etc... mix it up!) I often toss in some extraseasoning...whatever I find on the shelf...

Here's another favorite soup recipe....I've fixed this one several times and it's awesome. Again, from a friend named Caron!

Caron’s Taco Soup
2 lbs. ground beef
1 chopped onion—brown with beef
7 oz. chopped green chilis (optional)
3 cans stewed tomatoes
2 cans hominy-drained
1 can kidney beans-drained
1 can pinto beans-drained
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix

Simmer till warm. I’ve done this in the crock pot…just put the meat and onions in to cook, then add the other ingredients a few hours later.


Check this thread out....looks good... Soups On!

Thanks for the receipes! I will have to try Tom's on Friday!! The taco one sounds really good too, but alas Jesse won't be able to chew for a couple of days.

It will be a Mac & Cheese, and soup weekend!!

We just got the phone call from the surgical center and he has to be there at 11:30 so he won't be able to eat anything for a long time, better make tonights meal REALLY good!!!

Anyone know how you make shrimp?? That's one of HIS favorites besides lobster and I am NOT making that!

Do you bread it and then fry- I don't have a fryer so I would have to pan fry. What about baking? I don't make seafood/ fish besides fish sticks. I have now idea how long to cook, how to cook it etc. So any help would be nice!!

shrimp can be done easily if you have a grilling surface or even in just pan.

my dh's favorite way is skewered

i put them on skewers (try to buy them that way most of the time)

in a zip lock baggie (big one) place

olive oil
soy sauce
lime juice couple of squeezes
garlic about 2 tbsp. (chopped) i use the stuff in a jar

you don't have to be exact just smell it and when it smells good add the shrimp kabobs.

let it marinate for no more than 30-45 min. and cook them up.

I make garlic sauce angel hair pasta, and add the shimp to the top. along with a couple of rolls on the side. and a salad. (dh is not big into veggies but will eat a salad)

That sounds good, Ani. Might have to give that on a shot. One could also use it, shrimp, in stir fry....just add soy souce and/or teriakyi (sp) sauce to a pan with a bit of olive oil. Stir in your fresh veggies (carrots, broccoli, cauliflour, frozen peas, are my favs) with garlic or whatever else sounds good. Usually shrimp only take a few mins. to cook so I add them near the end. If you want more of a sauce on it, mix a Tbs. of corn starch in with about 4 tbs of water and add. YOu can add more water/soy sauce, etc, if you want it more saucy...or leave as is if you want it more veggie-ish. Serve it over rice. Hope he starts feeling better...poor guy. What a drag!

I usually don't make homemade soups, but I recently got this recipe...it's SO EASY!!! It looks and tastes like something served in a fancy resturant!!

Sweet Potato Soup
~4 cups peeled and cubed sweet potatos (or butternut squash)
~1 tbsp veg oil (I used olive oil)
~1 onion, minced
~2 garlic cloves
~1 tsp powdered ginger
~2 tsp curry paste
~4 cups of stock (I didn't want the added salt in a comercial stock, so I just used water)

Heat oil over med heat & saute onion, minced garlic, ginger & curry paste. Add stock & sweet potatoes. When onion is tender, bring to a boil & cover. Simmer 10-15 min, until sweet potatoes are tender. Puree soup in a blender.

~If soup is too spicy, add sour cream to bowls of soup.

Cook ground beef, onion & garlic. Drain. Combine ketchup, water, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, worcestershire sauce & chili powder in the crock pot, stir in meat mixture. Cover & cook on high for 3-4 hours or love for 6-8 hours.
I was home sick today and wanted a yummy, warm, home-cooked meal, but still had to keep in mind my husband is strictly following Weight Watchers.

In between naps I ran down to the kitchen and threw this together! My husband walked in after work and said how good it smelled in the house! (I was drooling all afternoon! ) I served it on toasted bread with a baked potato and green beans! IT WAS DELICIOUS!!!! It is now one of our new favorites!

Thanks for the yummy idea!

Tonight we're having baked chicken, lentils, and white rice.

Ham hock
Lentils
finely chopped carrots
chopped onions
garlic
can o chicken broth
salt & pepper

Saute onions until transluscent.
Wash and sort beans.
Add sauted onions, lentils, chopped carrots, garlic and ham hock to the pot.
Add chicken broth and water.
Simmer for 20 minutes.
Add salt & pepper.

Sorry I don't have measurements. I just eyeball it. If it seems to be running out of liquid I add more water. It should be enough to cover the beans.

Crab legs were awesome!! I really recommend crab crackers though! DH had quite the time trying to break the king crab legs with all the spikes on them Ended up using pliers which are now in the dishwasher. LOL

I added garlic mashed potatoes, and carrots with the brown sugar sauce.

Tonight's dinner was country style ribs in the crock pot, salad, and mac and cheese. The ribs cooked most of the day. I poured off the juices when they were almost done and poured in bbq sauce for the rest of the cooking time. They turned out pretty good. The salad was a simple iceberg lettuce, with baby carrots, fresh mushrooms, tomatoes, and avacados with ranch dressing.

For dessert I'm using a philo pastry shell and stuffing it with cherries, sugar, and butter, then baking it on some stonewear. We'll put vanilla icecream on top. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Thank goodness I'm doing a lot of hiking now, or I'd really be packing on the pounds with dinners like these.

We are having eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and pancakes. My son loves breakfast for dinner and we never have time in the morning for a real breakfast.
