Today, I felt it was time to clean out the freezer, dump lots of stuff into the Crock Pot, and have soup for supper. This is really a no-brainer, but I can't tell you how many times I've had to throw away tidbits of frozen leftovers -- earmarked for soup -- that ended up freezer burned and useless. So I'm pretty proud I remembered this time.
What's in this soup, you ask?
Assume everything was frozen first: chicken broth, chicken, ham, tomato, tomato puree, limas, black-eyed peas, corn, potatoes, green beans, and yellow rice. It smells wonderful!
I'm about to toss into the bread machine the makings for onion, garlic, and cheese bread, too.
UPDATE: the soup was quite good, but the bread was excellent. Here's where I got the recipe. I altered the recipe a bit by adding in the garlic, onion, and cheese at the beginning instead of halfway through. Makes fabulous buttered toast!
