Black Bean Soup

Although the recipe calls for ham hock, I do not eat ham. So, I scrolled down and found other options, one option being a package of hot dogs!

My local grocery store sells Eckrich cheese franks at 2 packages for $4.00.

Obviously, you can buy black beans at the dollar store. I am simply going to use canned, as opposed to dry by the recipe.

Yes!

What do you think?

Yesterday, for dinner, we splurged.

Steak, corn on the cob and baked potatoes. I have not had a steak in years. Of course, I had to throw lots of sour cream on the potatoes!



The dish might look messy, but sure was good.

One roommate prepared the steak. One roommate prepared the corn on the cob. I prepared the baked potatoes. Not bad, huh?

LINDA719, thank you for the tip! Something at my house that everyone would agree upon! I have cans of applesauce in the cabinet just collecting dust. I have leftover cupcake liners too.

HAVE YOU EVER USED DANDELION? My older family members used to gather fresh leaves in Spring and made a gravy like thing with fried bacon and bacon grease. I think their was vinegar in it also. Sorry about small print.

We just made this soup today.....and it's in my calorie range!

PASTA FAGIOLI. (Serves 4)

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil or olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 pound either ground beef or ground bison. (I used bison as it's leaner.)
1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ cannellini beans, drained, rinsed
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
1 carton (32 oz) Progresso™ chicken broth
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed
1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni (4 oz)
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste - as much or as little as you prefer.

Steps:

1). In 3-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir 2 minutes. Next add the beef or bison and brown thoroughly. Add remaining ingredients except macaroni and cheese. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2). Remove cover; increase heat to high. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium. Add macaroni; cook 10 to 15 minutes or until tender.
Sprinkle each serving with cheese.

Nutrition Facts:
Serving Size: 1 Serving equals 360 calories.




Use an UpWalker when walking outside as I am very unsteady.

I like pickled beets & have found an easy way to get some. When my sweet pickles are gone I add a can of drained sliced beets to the pickle juice. I get my beet fix!

@WALLOWA Thanks for all the great ideas!

I personally am not a fan of any type of peppermint. But others enjoy it!

@WALLOWA I have never done anything like that. Do you grow your own herbs etc also?
