Chunky and not Chunky soup

On this rainy, rainy day I decided to make soup...well, soups actually. I just picked squash so I made Curried Butternut Squash Soup with a few adjustments. ( added a can of coconut milk and a half of a can of tomato sauce that needed using)
Also I heated up my chili soup I created the other night. I will have to post that one--it was good!
I sure hope the sun shines tomorrow!

No Cooking Tonight!

Our neighbors are having a small get together tonight and invited us over.
We have been neighbors and friends for many many years.
Their daughter had a baby several months ago who was premature, lot's of complications, their daughter was having some medical issues and took a leave of absence from her job, she and her husband ended up moving in with the parents to help cut cost.
Friday, the doctors told them the baby will be released in a week or so, their daughter is doing much better and they will be staying on with the parents ,this is their first baby so the new Mom is a bit nervous with such a tiny one , she was 1 lb at birth and now she just over 5 lbs ,still tiny though.
They are having a small get together before the baby comes home to thank a few people for the help during the baby's first few weeks.I took food ,over when the baby was first born and they were all spending a lot of time at the hospital, coming home late and I'm sure not eating most of the day. I gave her a lot of diapers I had(don't ask me why I had so many brand new cloth diapers, my youngest are almost 20 yrs old!) but I did, so I gave them to her.
Anyway, looking forward to dinner, my neighbor is an amazingly good cook!

Slow Cooker Roast with Veggies

Well, it is cloudy, gloomy, and cool… plus we are supposed to be getting some rain. A perfect day for a nice yummy roast.

This dish has a bit more work on the front end, because we will be making our own cream soup base, and dry onion spice mix. In truth, it only adds about 20 minutes to the recipe preparation.

Once the prep is complete, you just throw it in the slow cooker, and 8 hours later, you have tender chunks of tasty roast, and perfectly seasoned veggies. I only hope you can wait that long.

You will need two other things to complete this recipe:
1. A cream soup base.
2. A dry onion spice mix.

I have given you suggestions of both items.

One more thing, I did try this dish in the oven, and I tried it in the slow cooker on high. In both cases the cooking time was cut in half, and in both cases the roast was not as flavorful, as cooking it on low for 8 hours. It tasted good, but not as good as the 8-hour method.

Happy Saturday everyone, and happy dining (((HUGS)))

French Onion Meatballs and Baked Beans in the Crock Pot..

Everything else is chilling nicely in the fridge, so my piano party is just about ready. I still have to decorate the studio and do a few other little odds and ends, but it looks like we're having a party! I've even managed to get my beverage center set up. Y'all have a wonderful weekend!
