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!

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)))

So I ate a sandwich. Tonight we ate the rest of the chicken and dumplings. I thought I had enough leftover from Wednesday to also make chicken pot pie...NOT!
So nothing left to put away in the freezer. :/

Lipton onion soup dry mix is used as a base for many a recipe, so I thought I would come up with a version of my own. I have left out two of the ingredients in most copycat recipes, and added two others.
The removal of the salt, and sugar gives the base a bit of flexibility; especially in recipes that are already sweet, or salty.
And the addition of the cumin, and paprika give it “earthy” flavor-notes that work well in soups, stews and casseroles.
Oh, one more thing, I removed the beef bouillon, and lightened it up with chicken bouillon.
This recipe is not designed to made a bowl of Lipton onion soup (there are many of those recipes already posted here on Just-a-Pinch); it is designed to use as a substitute for Lipton onion soup mix in a recipe like a soup, stew, or casserole. Or, whatever else you come up with :-)
Happy Friday, and happy dining (((HUGS)))
