Simply blend 4 tbsp each~ minced onions, parsley flakes, cornstarch, salt; 1 tsp each ~instant minced garlic, basil, thyme, sage, marjoram, oregano and; 4 tsp sugar. Put a lid on the jar and shake. I add to unsalted sauce to make a simple spaghetti sauce-sometimes with meat sometimes not!
sweet as I made cinnamon rolls today! The space? Well we have Sneaky Nibblers around the farm. The secret? Mashed potatoes!
spicy as I mixed up a jar of spaghetti seasoning mix this afternoon.
soupy as I made South American Soup today in the slow cooker.
I collect cookbooks and this is a recent find. Fourth found the recipe in this cookbook yesterday and asked if I would make it.
So simple to make:
1. medium onion diced
2. 1 cup carrot peeled and diced
3. 1 cup winter squash- I used Acorn squash
4. 1 sweet potato peeled and diced
5. 2 cups potatoes- I was a tad short on this. peel and dice
6. Canned corn-recipe calls for using liquid but I always rinse the canned veggies.
7. 1 clove garlic minced.
salt pepper and paprika
2 cups fresh washed torn spinach
1.5 lbs lean pork or beef cut up. I used stew meat.
Brown the meat in a few tbsp of olive oil with the onions and garlic and put in crock pot. Add veggies and 3 or so cups of water. Slow cook 8 hours or until done. Add the fresh spinach and put on high for 10 minutes until the spinach wilts.
simple as this is what the simple life looks like!
