MushBurger Soup

Two boxes of sliced mushrooms, a half stick butter, a pound of hamburger, a bag of onion soup mix, a cup of rice, a can of beef broth, and two cans of water. Saute mushrooms in butter, set aside, cook hamburger with as many herbs and spices as you like. Add the rest and bring to a boil, then simmer 20 minutes. Everybody loved it.

Vote for Pasta Puttanesce

In a large, deep frying pan, saute about 4-5 fresh chopped cloves of garlic in plenty of olive oil, so it covers the bottom of the pot and the garlic. Cook till tender. Add 1 can flat anchovies (the whole can), 3-4 T capers and 1 tsp or less of red chili pepper flakes. Continue cooking and stir until anchovies are dissolved.
Add 1 can pitted black olives, drained, and olives cut in two lengthwise. Add a 28 oz. can of Italian style chopped tomatoes. I sloshed in some red wine, shiraz, but any kind will do. It just adds to the richness of the dish. The juicier the better, because you'll want to sop up the broth with bread. Then go for seconds!
Let all this simmer while you make a pasta. Any kind is fine, I used bow-ties.
Serve in bowls over pasta with crusy Italian bread and tossed salad. Oh yum.

I ran into a friend that was campaigning with McCain signs at the corner and I brought her and her friends a big bowl. I waved one of their signs while they fell in.

Oink Oink a big pork roast

It was early in the morning when I pulled out the big guns - a giant crock pot! In went a huge pork roast and a bag of dry onion soup mix sprinkled on top. On went the lid and I let it rip at high temp until an hour before dinner, then I put in four washed but dry sweet potatoes. Snapped beans and a box of instant pork stuffing mix was all I had to fix to go with this good dinner. The biggest job was cleaning the crock pot afterwards.

Bok bok bok bowk, It's Super Chicken!

I drizzled some Italian dressing over a pyrex baking dish chock full of huge chicken breasts (big sale at Albertsons!) and baked that, covered with foil, for about an hour. Served with that was cooked carrots, Italian green beans, and boiled new potatoes. Dessert was a 2-box truckload of 'Nanner Puddin'. It's richer if you replace some of the milk with a can of sweetened condensed milk, then fold in a small tub of Cool Whip.

I had planned on making chicken pot pie or chicken salad with the extra chicken I cooked, but -oos- Rob had it for lunch the next day instead.
