"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

On the Stovetop

I have been pressed to have more ready to eat meals in my pantry so I have been canning some very simple soups. 

This is a ground beef, potato, and corn soup.  I make the soup with cooked ground beef seasoned with cumin, Mexican oregano, garlic, onion, and New Mexican chili powder.  I add a can of tomato sauce for every cup of corn, potatoes, and beef.  I add four cups of water.   Simple right?

I am going to label these and then put in the pantry.  

Oh to serve~we like to heat it until it thickens and serve with corn tortillas!  Yum.

We try to always have home-canned soups on hand. I make mine really thick and then add stock or water when I am ready to heat them up. Or, the boys take them to work along with some bread, rice, crackers or noodles to mix in for a hearty 'stew'.

I am SO THANKFUL for home-canned items in my pantry! Makes life a lot easier.
