Ten Can Soup

Lately, we have been workin' the crock pot dinners! On Sunday night, we had some friends over and we ate pot roast with carrots, potatoes, and onions in the crock pot. Earlier in the week, we had corned beef with cabbage in the crock pot. I just love the convenience of throwing some stuff in, turning it on, and coming back a few hours later to an amazing dinner. Doesn't that sound nice?! I think we'll be doing this pretty often now that the weather is getting chilly!

On Menu Plan Monday, I said we would be having Ten Can Soup this week. Yet another crock pot meal! It's got a catchy name, but it's just Brunswick Stew. And I do so love a good Brunswick Stew (RIP, Old South BBQ. You are missed!).

Oh, by the way, I have this thing about canned meat. I hate it. But for this recipe, I just temporarily suspend my abhorrence. And it's worth it. But, if you can't do that, you can most certainly substitute meat that you've cooked yourself. Although that would take this easy recipe into a whole new realm of difficulty. I just don't want to go there...because I'm lazy!

Ten Can Soup

2 cans stewed tomatoes*
1 can creamed corn
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can English peas
1 can lima beans
1 can bbq pork
1 can bbq beef
1 can chicken
1 can Castleberry's Brunswick Stew**
1 T white vinegar
1 T lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in crock pot. Cook on low for about 3 hours.

* I used fire-roasted diced. Kurt's favorite!
** I couldn't find this, so I left it out. I guess I'm really making 9 can soup?!

My baby is growing up!

Liam's YaYa (Samantha, Kurt's mom) reminded me that I haven't posted any pictures of Liam here in a while. What a slacker I am! I'll have to do better!

Here is a slideshow with a few pictures from his 1st birthday party at YaYa and Papa D's house:

Tomorrow, I have a few pictures and a video from our little trip to Red Caboose Park!

Menu Plan Monday: October 25-31

I have been terrible about menu planning for the past few weeks. But I'm back. My mom is coming to visit us this week, so I called her last night to find out what she wanted for dinner while she's here. And she just kept saying to just eat what we normally eat and don't do anything special for her. So I just picked what sounded good to me! Here's what you're eating this week, Mom!

  • BBQ Boston Butt Tacos (we have some cooked Butt in the freezer from the last time it was on sale) with black beans and rice, sour cream, lettuce, and salsa
  • Chicken Parmesan Bake (Try this! It's so good and really easy)
  • Burgers on the George Foreman, Parmesan Potato Wedges, and Burger Buns
  • Ten Can Soup (This is basically Brunswick Stew...just a bunch of canned veggies and stuff, slapped together in the crock-pot. It's so easy and so good. Are you noticing a trend?! haha) and Cornmeal Buns
  • Chicken Salad Sandwiches or BBQ Boston Butt Sandwiches
  • Leftovers for the remaining nights
I'm rocking the links this week. You're welcome!
