I'm sipping on my first cup of hot chocolate, since the last winter months. It is yummy!
I hope to start posting a block of the month in October. I am waiting on approval from the designer of the blocks I want to use. If I don't get approval, I will search for another avenue. Possibly a mystery quilt pattern... that could prove interesting. :)
This week's recipe is called Cabbage Patch Stew. I received this recipe from my Aunt Ree. This is a hearty and delicious soup for cool days. Cornbread fritters go well with it.
1 pound ground chuck
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups cabbage, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup diced celery
1 can (15.5 oz) kidney beans (can substitute with pinto or ranch style)
1 can (16 oz) stewed tomatoes
1 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder
Cook and stir ground chuck in dutch oven until lightly brown, drain, add onion, cabbage and celery. Cook and stir until vegetables are light brown. Stir in tomatoes, kidney beans (with liquid), water and seasonings. Heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes. Makes 4-6 servings.
What is something you couldn't live without? Why?
JUST SOMETHING TO SHARE...
Therefore I live for today -
Certain of finding at sunrise
Guidance and strength for the way.
Power for each moment of weakness,
Hope for each moment of pain,
Comfort for every sorrow,
Sunshine and joy after rain!
That is my hope for you this weekend. Have a great weekend!
God bless and keep you,
My answer to the last question: Right before I fall asleep, I am usually talking to my Heavenly Father, thanking Him for the day and blessings, asking for protection and peace over my family and friends, and for forgiveness of my short comings during the day.
