Thursday, October 23, 2008's cold outside....

So, when I woke up, it was 41 degrees in N.TX. Mmmmm....soup weather! I had a nice bowl of roasted tomato from Central Market yesterday, and it was good!

Well, I am hosting dinner for friends tommorrow with a menu of homemade veggie soup, grilled cheese, and either pumpkin cobbler or apple pie (I am craving that now that April mentioned it on her "get to know you" post.)

Below are my recipes for my yummy veggie soup and famous apple pie.

Vegetable Soup

14 oz. chicken broth
11 oz. V-8 juice
1 cup water
14.5 oz. diced tomatoes
(with green chilies is good!!!!)
Frozen mixed vegetables (corn, peas,
green beans, whatever you like)
Stew beef (optional)
Potatoes (frozen is fine)

Brown optional stew beef in oil.
Mix together all ingredients.
Bring to boil, cover, stir occasionally.
Simmer for 30-40 minutes.
Serve with corn bread or grilled cheese!!!!

Dutch Apple Pie

1 cup sugar
½ cup flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 unbaked pie crusts
½ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
