|Taco Soup earlier in the summer: if only we had fresh cilantro now!|
Come this time of year, I seriously need some help and inspiration in the kitchen. The only green things around are collecting ice in the freezer and the only foods I really want to make involve lots of butter, sugar, and oven time.
A typical afternoon at 3:00 pm has me thinking: Dinner in two hours. What to make? What to make? And all I can think of are various soups. The same ones we had last week (for four or five meals in a row). It's the winter kitchen blues. *sigh*
So, I'll share my list if you'll share yours. Or I'll just share my list and hope you reciprocate. Because it's the season for giving, right? Both of us. Right?
Top Go-To Meals in Clymerland
(aka: what I'm getting really bored of making right about now)
1. Chili and Cornbread (or rice)
2. Corn Chowder
3. Rice and Beans (okay, there's a non-soup!)
4. Irish Stew
5. Venison-Vegetable Soup (or just vegetable soup)
6. Sloppy Joe with Succotash
7. Peanut Stew with Rice
It's now 3:20 pm--shall it be Corn Chowder or Rice and Beans?
