I'm intending to try to make soup this weekend, and it's one of the ingredients.
1 (15 ounce) can creamed corn
1 cup peeled and cubed potatoes
1 cup chopped carrots
1/2 onion, chopped
1 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 (14.5 ounce) cans vegetable broth
1 (16 ounce) jar processed cheese sauce
1 In a slow cooker, combine corn, potatoes, carrots, onion, celery seeds and pepper. Add broth and cover, cook on low 8 to 10 hours.
2 Stir in cheese and cook 30 to 60 minutes or until cheese is melted and blended with vegetables.
I have to buy an onion for this (as well as celery seed and, well, most everything else on the list), but it struck me that I never bought an onion before. I don't like onions and I don't cook much, so I guess I just never needed one before.
Also, I'm getting a bunch of jars/containers of spices. I think I need a spice rack or something.
Have to go shopping tomorrow after work (or over lunch). Can't put it off until Friday, since all the long-weekend people will be herding through the place. Well, they'll probably be there tomorrow we well, but more will be there Friday.
I'm really not too happy on my food-eating progress. Other than my lunchtime salad, the only thing I'm eating is the meatless stuff I was eating before I started all this. Cereal in the morning, cheese or pasta or bread for dinner. Sometimes I think about eating nothing but rice and fruit. I had a co worker years back who ate nothing but rice for 20 years. He was really skinny, but healthy and perky with energy. The strong-plus side to a rice-only diet is that I could stop thinking about darned food. Would you believe I'm still having bad dreams about eating meat by accident almost every other night? That's silly! Stop it, brain! Food is just food, I don't like how much time I have to put into thinking about it.
