Homemade Tomato Soup

5 cups of chopped fresh tomatoes
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
4 cloves of garlic, diced
2 cups chicken broth
2 TBLS butter
2 TBLS flour
1-2 tsp sugar (to cut acidity, adjust amount to personal preference)
Salt to taste


Combine tomatoes, onion, garlic, and chicken broth in a medium stockpot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Run cooked mixture through a food processor or blender to smooth texture.

In the empty pot, melt butter. Add flour and combine to make roux. Gradually add in tomato mixture, whisking to ensure that no lumps form. Season with salt and sugar to taste.

This is SOOOO good!

So are all of you making dinner for Christmas? If so whatcha makin'? We are (I am) doing a Italian Christmas and this is what we are having...

Chicken Tetrazinni

1 cup chicken broth
1 cup evaporated milk
1 tbsp. butter
2-3 cups cooked chicken
1 spaghetti sauce packet
1 7oz can of sliced mushrooms (DO NOT DRAIN)
8 oz cooked spaghetti noodles
1 cup parmesan cheese


Heat oven to 400.
cook noodles, cook and cube chicken in frying pan.

remove chicken from heat. add milk, broth& butter to pan. Wisk in spaghetti sauce packet heat to boiling. Add chicken and mushrooms (juice and all) heat. Add spaghetti noodles and mix.

Place mixture into a greased casserole dish add parmesan cheese and bake for 20 mins. Be careful not to fill the dish too full or you will boil over in the oven.


My sisters Lasagna

Oven 375
bake for 45mins to an hour

2-3 cups cottage cheese (depends on how much you like this)
lasagna noodles
1 lb cooked hamburger
1 clove of minced garlic
1 tbsp basil
parsley flakes (read directions you use this two times)
1 tsp salt (read directions you use this two times)
1 lb can crushed tomatoes
2 cans tomato paste
1 can tomato sauce
mozzerella cheese

NOTE**** my sister makes her own tomato sauce*****

Directions

Boil noodles
Cook hamburger and add: 1 clove mince garlic, 1 tbsp basil, 1 tbsp parsley flakes, 1/2 tsp salt

Mix:
Crushed tomatoes, tomato paste and tomato sauce together in a bowl; set aside

Mix filling:
2-3 cups cottage cheese or Racotta cheese
2 beaten eggs
2tsp salt (optional)
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp. parsley flakes
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Layer in 9x 13 pan: noodles, mozzerella cheese, hamburger mixture, filling etc.... Finish with a layer of mozzerella cheese and a little cheddar for coloring.

This makes a HUGE pan and it is very thick- one pan will feed 6-8 people!!!!!!!!!!

Michelle,

Please don't take this as a push, but... When you do get them compiled, will you add the link here? Or should we send you our email address if we'd like to beg for a copy? I was just going to start working on doing that, but luckily I went to the last page to see how long the thread was, and saw your post. Thanks so much for saving many of us lots of hard work!

My "plan" is to just post a link, however, it may be too big to get it up here. So I may have to email it to each and everyone who would like one.

I haven't worked on it for a few days, maybe I will get a chance again tonight and see how far I get. Right now what I have done is just gone through each page on here and copied everyones recipes that they have posted and pasted them onto Mircosoft Word.

I would like to get each recipe in their own section ie: chicken dinners all together, hamburger dinners all together, desserts etc. That will take more time, but I can post a "rough draft" first then get the final one out later.

Default I'M DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well Almost...

I AM DONE! I AM DONE!

Well almost.

I am done with the rough draft and it's 62 pages!!!!!! My plan in the next few weeks is to get it all printed out and cut, pasted, and add the recipes into the appropriate catergory. That will take me awhile.

There was one reicpe that I left out because it was almost 1 1/2 pages with directions so I will post that recipe seperatly. Sorry, I hope that I don't offend bwv544 for doing this I just don't want people to get confused. I know that you went to a lot of work typing it out but this way those that would like the recipe will be able to print off the 2 pages by itself.

Some recipes are cutting it very close to the full page mark too and so there are some that have their own page and some short recipes that are on a page of their own- this is why I want to cut and paste.

So here it is ladies (hopefully it isn't too big to share a link on here)

Enjoy! When you use a recipe make sure you let the author know how you like it- we always like to hear feedback.

I should add the authors SCS NAME is below the title of the meal/ recipe. And there SHOULD be enough room between each recipe so you can tell who goes with what.

So tonight I am making a seasoned porketta roast that I purchased at our local meat market. Hopefully it's good. I could smell the seasoning in the fridge.

Now, off to search these documents for something for dinner...

I have a GREAT Chicken Cacciatore recipe for the crockpot that I made last week, I'll post it tonight...YUM.

Thanks for putting that together. I'll have to print them out. We are having beef stew tonight in the crock pot. Hopefully it turns out OK. I usually do it on the stove top, so this is a new adventure for us.

Tonight is Alfredo sauce with Penne noodles. And some yummy Mozzarella Garlic Bread from Peppridge Farms.

I don't think I posted the recipe for the Alfredo yet. Will post later tonight, I'm at work right now.

Less than an hour to go...Yeah!

Well, I am just trying to make simple things over the next few days becuase I don't want any leftovers. DH leaves for Vegas on Friday. DS and I don't eat leftovers.

Last night I made pork chops and the day before was spaghetti.

Tonight not sure- maybe pizza or fish fillets with some MINI tator tots that I found.

Ok, here's the Chicken Cacciatore recipe I promised yesterday:

from cdkitchen.com
Inrgedients:

2TBS oil
3 Lbs chicken breasts boneless ,skinless (I used boneless skinless thighs and it was awesome)
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 small onion, chopped,
1 pound fresh mushrooms, thickly sliced (I omitted these...don't eat them)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup dry red wine, or red cooking wine
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 TBS tomato paste
1 can (14.5 oz size) diced tomatoes, drained (I used ones already seasoned with basil, oregano, and garlic, and I omitted the following herbs)
1 tsp dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves

Directions:

Add onions to bottom of slow cooker stoneware. Add chicken, and then top chicken with remaining ingredients. Cover; cook on low 7 to 9 hours (High 4 to 5 hours)

I served this over rice the first night, and then DH an I had leftovers on sub rolls mmmmm, I mad everyone in my office hungry on Tuesday!

Yesterday I made New Years Day dinner...only a couple of days late! I had bought a ham for Christmas dinner and then DH said he didn't want me making a big meal on Christmas; originally he was going to take us out, but then nothing is open. We ended up making hot dogs for the kids. I will say...it was strange not eating a big meal on Christmas Day and I don't think I'll do that again! It just felt...WRONG!

Instead, I might make something I could slip in the oven ready to go.

I was going to make the ham for New Years Day, but then we were up until 2 AM New Years Eve and I was just too whacked. We went out to eat instead. So I made the ham yesterday, with baked potatoes (a sweet potato for me!), broccoli with cheese sauce and corn pudding.

Today the kids went back to school and DH does not have to go back until Monday, so we went to an Italian restaurant for lunch. So I didn't make dinner for us; the kids had chicken patties and mac & cheese and DH and I sort of nibbled this and that. But it's been a hollow leg day; I'm hungry again...so since the diet hasn't started yet, I will probably hit the cookies & cream in the freezer soon!

How are you feeling today??? "well adjusted? "

Yep, we had chinese, and it was YUMMY...too bad I forgot to bring my leftovers for lunch...oh well...

Tonight will be hot dogs and french fries, since we have to run to SAM'S club when DH gets home, and tomorrow is the big B-Day party for DD, so I don't think we'll be eating big...

Tonight I think I'll make spaghetti. I got a good price on ground chuck the other day, so I need to cook some and freeze some. I'm making my own sauce again...tastes SO much better than the stuff in the jars and I get enough for two meals plus.

We went out for lunch again yesterday and had bar burgers and onion rings, so last night we were still kind of full; I stopped and picked up hot and ready Little Caesar's for the kids and ended up having a small piece of that and one piece of Crazy Bread.

I do this too...I've got a huge 12 quart pot (though the one my uncle's family uses I could almost fit in it's so big...they use fresh tomatoes for theirs...YUM) and I get enough for a few meals...I make it 4-5 times a year, and it usually lasts, although I do have some jars on reserve, just in case

I am having crock pot chicken cachitore - thanks! Off to buy mushrooms and pimento and chk broth - oh and chicken.

Tonight we are having hot dogs and potato salad from the grocery store deli...there's usually is pretty good, so I don't bother to make my own. Today it's not as good as usual, though.

Tomorrow I just think I'll make breakfast for dinner; got lots of eggs!

It's been pretty dreary here the last several days! So for me that spells homemade soup time!! I throw 2 frozen chicken breasts in boiling water and about 4 chicken boullion cubes. Let boil for about 30 minutes. Remove breasts and set aside to cool down a bit. To the chicken broth water I then add the amish egg noodles and a can of carrots (drained) . These are already tender and don't have to worry about half cooked fresh carrots!! Or I sometimes like to use frozen peas. Let the noodles cook. The breasts are cool enough to handle by now. Shread the chicken and toss back in the pot! I like to add Cavander's, Tony Chacere's, a little garlic powder, salt, pepper and about 4 more cups of water. Heat back up for about 15 minutes and Voila!!

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?
I am so sorry to hear what your husband has had to endure, and now another surgery! I have a recipe posted here somewhere for homemade chicken noodle soup. I made it tonight, it is so simple and my husband and I couldn't stay out of it! My username is escaladymom (Ruthie) I hope that you can find it, there are so many posted today!! Good luck tomorrow and God Bless!

Default Still taking it easy

I am still taking it easy for the food.

Friday night I had my daycare baby and her mom over for dinner and some scrapbooking and I made goulash.

Last night I made a call to Applebee's carside to go. I had the Chicken Fajita wrap and DS had the chicken tenders meal.

This afternoon we went to a new Perkins by my home to 'check' it out so I was pretty full yet from my Bread bowl salad. This evening I took it easy and figured that we should eat at home so I made a Ham steak and fried eggs.

DH won't be back from Vegas until Tuesday night- tomorrow night I will be making homemade chicken nuggets and tuesday night will be pizza

I tried something new tonight & it was a big hit with both of my boys:

Sloppy Joe Casserole

2 lbs ground beef
1/2 c. diced onion
2 cans sloppy Joe sandwich sauce (or 2 packages dry mix & tomato sauce according to pkg directions)
2 cups frozen corn
1 can refrigerated biscuits (10 biscuits)

Heat oven to 375°. In a skillet, cook ground beef & onions until beef is brown. Drain off fat. Stir in sloppy Joe sauce & frozen corn. Cook for 5-8 min. Spoon into a casserole dish. Separate biscuits; cut in half. Arange around the edges of dish with sides touching. Bake for 15-20 min. Serves 6-8.

Tonight we had Turkey Club Pizza and grapes. Last night I made a pork roast in the crockpot with a wonderful broth that was to die for! With that we had a deliscious pasta salad and cornbread muffins.

Tonite it's Split pea soup with pork chops. Didn't want to make anything real heavy with this. The soup will be filling enough!
